Disneyland ½ Marathon

Almost a year in the making… I completed my goal of running my 1st Half Marathon!

Here are some of the video highlights of my run

For about 3 years I have been running 5k’s and enjoying them. I had thought about doing a 10k, and even a half marathon… but in my head that was years off. Almost a year ago a I was talking with a friend living in California… she had taken up running and the Disneyland Half Marathon came up. We both decided we’d do it together. A few months later when registration opened up, I took the 1st step and signed up.

During the winter I did pretty good with exercising but not as good as I should have been. I would do Turbo Jam a few times a week, and run here and there. In May, after doing some research I became a Beachbody Coach, and my coach suggested I do Insanity. Holy Cow! That workout pushed me to a level I didn’t know I had. What was really crazy is right at the end of my Insanity program I had to start training for the Half Marathon. During Insanity I didn’t do any running… but my first run after Insanity was my best run I ever had! I was able to take on these hills that I never could do before. And I could have run farther than my training schedule called for!

Before I became a Beachbody Coach, I enjoyed working out, and I knew I wanted to take my fitness to the next level, but I didn’t know how. When I got started the first thing I noticed the excitement level in my workouts exploded again! Not only was I getting getting healthy and getting my body back, I was helping other people find their motivation. And sense then I’ve realized that helping others with their motivation actually has helped me find more motivation and turned me into a half marathon runner! I’m not sure how far I actually would have gone with this run if it wasn’t for the amazing people I’ve met on Facebook and Twitter! So I want so send a great big THANK YOU to my Facebook and Twitter friends that helped me run and pushing even on the days that I didn’t want to or didn’t think I could make it 13.1 miles!

The Disneyland Half Marathon was such a cool experience! I’m planning on doing it again next year and would love to get a group together to do it with. If you decide you want to do it let me know and we can help push each other. All you need to be able to do is to keep a 16 min mile pace, most people can do this walking!

And I’m sending out a challenge to my team of coaches… where I will pay your entry fee to the Disneyland Half Marathon 2011!! Coaches I will send you the details. If you’re not a coach and would like to know more message me!
