Registering for a RunDisney race has become a stressful experience, with the races selling out in a blink of an eye.
However, both Jason and I managed to get signed up for the 2016 Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend and we’re both running the Rebel Challenge!
For months after running it, we were determined to sign up. Then things slowly changed and we tried to get some friends to come. When they decided not to, we started wondering if we should sign up, considering our other travel plans (including a possible April trip to Boston next year if Jason qualifies for the Boston Marathon during the Foot Traffic Flat Marathon on July 4th).
Then it was trying to decide what race to run. I really wanted to run the Rebel Challenge again, but wondered if it was worth the expense. Jason was waffling between Rebel Challenge or just the Half Marathon. Finally he decided that for the first time in the history of us running, he would run the entire 10K with me. We’ve always been a little jealous of couples who can run together. But my fastest 5K is around 32 minutes and he regularly runs sub-20 minute 5Ks.
But RunDisney races are never about time so we’re going to try it out! I’m super excited to get our pictures together for once!
We may have to practice running together. Usually if Jason tries to run at my speed, he looks like a string puppet with his knees shooting above his waist.
I’ve been giving myself a break from running— I basically haven’t done anything at all since finishing the Rum Run. Guess I better get back to it!
