January Half–Tinker Bell

I started the year out in style with the Tinker Bell Half Marathon at Disneyland in Anaheim, California.  This time last year I was running my first ever half marathon.

I love the runDisney programs.  They put on a well-supported, well-volunteered, fun race.  The race medals are impressive, to say the least.

I ran most of the race with my girlfriend from New York running in her first ever half marathon.  Another girlfriend of mine spent the weekend with us, but we she is crazy fast and crossed the 10K marker well before we even hit the 5k.

We dressed as PNK sisters from Monster’s University.  I LOVE dressing up.


Outfit components:

Champion Sports Bra

Champion Cheerleading Shirt (which I bought in the girls’ section at Target—I can’t believe my boobs fit in it)

Nike running shorts

Pink feather boa tu-tu skirt

pink furry leg warmers

Bondi band

Pink wig

Run Forest, Run

I have decided to run a half marathon every month this year.  Call it what you will: 12 in ’14, a New Year’s Resolution, crazy.  All are likely accurate.  I’m not one for setting New Year’s resolutions, and this particular goal is not something that will be easy to break.  Why is it that New Year’s Resolutions are easy to break?

Why am I doing this?  Well, really, just because.  I want to stay in running shape.  Having a set plan for 13.1 miles will make that easier.  I want to be able to run a long distance.  I want to be able to improve my speed. The added bonus of getting to travel just makes it more enticing. So here’s the current 13.1 year plan:

January- Tinker Bell, Anaheim
February- San Dieguito, San Diego
March- San Diego
April- San Francisco Rock & Roll
May – Cleveland, Ohio
June – San Diego Rock & Roll
July – Stonewall Peak, Julian, CA Shoreline Half Marathon, Ventura
August – Hell of a Half, Exeter, CA Disneyland Dumbo Doubledare, Anaheim
September – Harvest, Ventura, CA
October – Los Angeles Rock & Roll
November – Avengers, Anaheim
December – Undecided. Considering the Jeff Galloway in Atlanta, or the Holiday Half in San Diego.

What are you running this year? Care to join me for a half marathon?
