runDisney Goals

"I used to have goals. 
They were evil goals, but they were goals."
Dr. Doofenshmirtz

I'm usually a "go with the flow" runner.

I don't use a Garmin and I don't follow a training schedule.

I run to stay healthy, feel better, reduce stress and clear my mind.

However, I must admit I'm a bit nervous about running the Princess Half Marathon.

My goal was to run "fast" again and complete the race in under 2 hours.

My runDisney Half Marathon PR was at the 2011 Disneyland Half Marathon (2:05:07).

My overall Half Marathon PR was at the 2008 ING Philadelphia Distance Run (1:48:57).

Of course, "fast" is relative term since I'm always comparing myself to my twin, Leah! ;-)

Leah's Half Marathon PR is 1:41:03 and Marathon PR is 3:54:47!

I'm always running behind her except when she walked the Disney Marathon in a boot! ;-)

My goal has changed since I've been ill for 3 weeks and I've only run 3 miles! :-(

I plan to take it easy, run slow and stop for all the character photographs.

Now my goal is to finish in under 3 hours and I will be happy with that! :-)

And, if you're passing me, you'll know it's Malinda! :-)
