Earning My Wings.

I did something last Friday. something that quite possibly, might qualify me to check into a mental institution. Or, alternatively, go on a motivational speaking tour. We’ll see in a few months.

I signed up for a half marathon. 
It’s called the “Tinkerbell Half Marathon” and it’s full of sparkles and glitter. It’s also 13.1 MILES.

The course for this race packed with pixie dust will begin on Disneyland Drive where runners will pass under Downtown Disney on their way into Disneyland Park. The race will travel down the famed Main Street U.S.A. and pass the home of Tinker Bell and her pixie pals, Pixie Hollow, before it makes its way around the Rivers of America. After Disneyland Park, the race will cut through Downtown Disney by the Disneyland Hotel and then it is on to the City of Anaheim. Runners will race through the enchanting, historic neighborhoods of downtown Anaheim, down the Anaheim Center Street Promenade and past Anaheim Ice on their way towards City Hall. Before returning to the Disneyland Resort they make their way through the Anaheim GardenWalk and then into Disney California Adventure Park. Just before a spectacular finish, runners experience the glitz and glamour of the Park’s Hollywood Boulevard and glistening Paradise Bay, and then it’s time for their “Fairy”-tale finish at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel.

My first run was yesterday, I went a full 2.1 miles in 30 minutes. (sad, I know.) This is actually a sufficient pace to keep, since you must keep within 16 minutes per mile or the dreaded truck picks you up. Now if i can keep that up for 11 more miles… I’ll be golden. *cough*omg*cough*impossible*cough*
It’s time to learn to run… and seriously earn my wings.
