13.1 Miles of Magic.

Now that I have successfully finished my first 5K Challenge, I have the confidence that I can train for and complete a half marathon.

The day before I left for Orlando, I was warned that the feeling of crossing the finish line is addictive. I admit, I didn't believe the person. However, I was addicted the moment the fire works went off and I began my first race as an adult!

I grew up a competitive swimmer (kind of). I had the opportunity to swim in Middle School and for two years in High School. You never forget the nerves that come over you right before you start, and the feeling of accomplishment when you finish.

I've spent the last couple of days thinking about the differences between swimming and running. The following are my comparisons.

  • Swimming is a very focused sport. It's you, the water and an open lane. 
  • Running, although very focused, is much different.
    •  The rush of adrenaline is much different when you can actually see the person racing next to you. 

Now that I know I can train and accomplish my running goals, I've officially decided to sign up for the Disney Wine and Dine 1/2 Marathon.

To kick it off - Here is my first countdown!
