A 1/2 Marathoner again… I can. I will. I did. This time was bitter sweet!

On the morning of January 11, 2014 and I mean the morning of… alarm clock went of at 3am (EST) in the middle of Orlando, Florida in the Animal Kingdom Lodge at Disney World. My first thought was “why am I doing this again?” My second thought was because I CAN and I WILL!

As I roamed around the room getting while 9 of my family members slept, there was a strange feeling going on in my body. I wasn’t looking forward to the long bus ride to Epcot, the long walk to the starting corrals and the rain that was predicted. The weather app on my phone said a 50% chance of rain. Crap, as I took out my garbage bag to wear over my clothes in the corrals before I started.

Surprisingly, the bus was waiting when I walked out at 3:45 am (EST) and the ride was smooth and quick as I caught a nap on the way and dreamed about no rain in 13.1 miles. It was crowded as usual, but smooth walking and the only ones talking were the run volunteers. Getting to my corral seemed quick and only noticed a few men and women in the bushes along the way. We had already out paced the port-a-potties.

This 13.1 run was for the gold bling, the experience and the characters. This makes my 5th 1/2 marathon since 2010.


YOU have to believe that YOU too can run a 1/2 marathon. YOU must walk before YOU can run.

If “I can do it, anybody can do it”.

Never say “NO” to anything YOU want to accomplish in life. Just go for it!
