Well it could be time for me to lace up my serious running trainers again – yesterday a new Disney race was announced. It’s a 10k race at Disneyland in Anaheim, California and it’s to be held Saturday August 31st 2013. So far exciting enough, but what’s got me really interested is the Dumbo Double Dare – that means running the 10km on the Saturday and then the half marathon on the Sunday. And it’s a 16 minute mile pace ( a little more than a 9 minute km) – although I love the fact that they suggest training at 15 minute miles to allow for photo stops! That sounds eminently do-able – and I get three shiny medals when I do it. I haven’t had a shiny medal for ages.
I lurve the Disney races – not least as it gives me an excuse to go to play in a theme park when I’m not running about. The Boyfriend, old grinch that he is, hates all things Disney so I’ll probably go on my own – but I’m hoping that some of my WISH buddies will be around to go on rides with me (I mean cheer me on and check my blisters). I think this one will sell out fast so I’ve got registration day pencilled into my diary – it’s January 22nd if you’re interested as well. Here’s the press release details and a handy button to click for registration information. See you in the corrals I hope.
Update: Yes, I did go and run this race – and if you want to see how I got on here’s my race reports.
First up, what’s it like at the Expo and my race report for 10km – there’s a cow in this one. If nothing else click to see the cow.
This is what happened on day two when I ran the half marathon – I admit I was a bit wobbly at the start of this one. There’s a happy ending though
