The countdown is on.
The runDisney Princess Half Marathon Weekend is just around the corner and I’m nervous.
WHAT IF I GET SWEPT BY THE BUS?!
I am not a runner.
In the Summer of 2005, a friend and I decided we were going to walk every day. She was actually looking for a running partner, but I wasn’t a runner. There were a few times we would try to run and I couldn’t make it. My face would turn beet red. I would gasp for air. She convinced me that I could have asthma and that I needed to have it checked out.
No asthma. Just out of shape.
So here I am, almost 11 years older and four kids later, running in a half marathon. I need music.
If I have learned nothing else during this training, it’s that the music you listen to will make or break your run. I went out the other night and turned on the shuffle mode on my phone.
When I got back to the house I could tell by looking at the (I will be using affiliate links) Map My Run app what I was listening to when. How crazy is that?!
That’s when I decided that I needed to create an upbeat playlist for running. These can’t be just any old songs though. I’m running in a half marathon at Walt Disney World.
“If you can dream it, you can do it” – Walt Disney
I’m SO excited and scared out of my mind.
