Runners - WWYD?
I've been running for about 6-7 months now. I usually run 12-13 km per week and can routinely run 5K without stopping or falling over (lol). I have a long term goal of completing a half-marathon.
The other night we were talking with friends who are headed to Disney and DH and I both realized that we'd like to visit one of the parks. Then DH discovered a travel package from our local running store yesterday to travel and run the Disney World Half Marathon in January 2012. He asked if I would consider going. It would have to be booked relatively soon.
The prospect of doing this in less than a year seems completely overwhelming and un-doable to me, though I know I may be selling myself a bit short. I am willing to stick to a training plan for 12 weeks or whatever it would take as I've done so in the past. By the end of this summer I will have completed two 5K's and one 10K race.
So....what would you do in my shoes? Would you book the trip and sign up for the race in January?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
"There's no such thing as failure. There's only feedback. Stop judging yourself & start recognizing it for what it is, an entry point for learning. The truth is, if you're not failing then you're not really reaching & really trying. If you don't like the outcome of a situation, learn from it, make corrections & reapproach wiser & stronger until you achieve your goals."
