Wine & Dine Half Marathon Training: Weeks 14-18

If you’ve learned anything about me from reading my blog or from following my training journey, it’s probably that I’m a walking contradiction and that I constantly change my mind. I waffle back and forth when it comes to making plans and that’s usually because I feel like I’m not doing enough, but then I realize that I’m doing too much and setting myself up for failure.

While I’m not sure I set myself up for failure throughout this training journey, I’m not sure I took into account all the things. All the things being the busyness of school starting, family obligations, and just responsibilities. For that reason, I’m making a few changes for the final weeks leading up to the race.

Wine & Dine Half Marathon Training: Weeks 1-5

Well, the time has come to start training for my next half marathon! Next week, I begin training for the runDisney Wine & Dine Half Marathon, and I fulfill a lifelong dream in the process. Ok, maybe not lifelong, but big dreams, y’all. As you can probably imagine, I’m equally as excited about the Disney aspect as I am about the race. I love Walt Disney World and I tease my husband about wanting to move to Florida so we could justify annual passes all.the.time. But instead, I settle for going every 4-6 years like most of the population.

Now for the “fun” part — the training. The last time I went through half marathon training, I had enormous life changes going on and it just wasn’t the peaceful, mind clearing long runs I had imagined. I had just moved home to start a complete career-180 and I hadn’t found a place to live, so I was bunking it with my parents. Luckily, my mom was running the same race, so we did a lot of our training together and I’m so grateful for that! However… I felt like the training plan I followed was very aggressive for me, so I knew I wanted to do something differently for my next half.

About five years ago, I learned about runDisney and ever since it has been a dream of mine to participate in a runDisney event. This year I finally got to make that dream come true!
