RunDisney Goals

Almost 6 years ago, I ran my first half marathon, the Disneyland Half Marathon. From then on, I was hooked!  Since then I have completed 4 Half Marathons, 1 10 miler and a half of a half (as you can read about in my previous posts). I've been thinking about my future RunDisney goals and I thought it I would share it here so you all could keep me accountable.

Goal #1 - Run a race without being worried about being swept. If you don't know RunDisney races, there is a 16 minute mile requirement on their races. That clock starts when the very last person crosses the start line. I have been swept from one race and I will never get swept again. However, I do always feel like I'm right at that cusp of barely getting to a 16 minute mile. Improving speed is the way to do that.

Goal #2 - Run a 5k with my son. Now, he's only 2 so I have a long ways to go but he's been enjoying the kids races! They are perfect to burn off some extra energy. 

Goal #3 - Run the Disneyland Paris Half Marathon. Because Paris. No other explanation necessary haha.

Goal #4 - This is the most important goal! I would love to do the Walt Disney World Marathon in 2019! I am going to make this happen! Then I will complete the Star Wars Half Marathon again and get a second Coast to Coast medal which means I've ran a half marathon on both coasts. Well my Florida run got cut short (which you can read about in previous posts.

How am I going to make these goals? My immediate plan is to run a couple times a week and once on the weekend if I can! I am working on dropping some weight as well which will help with goal #1. I am signed up for the Star Wars 10k at Disneyland for this upcoming January and I'm hoping to be faster than I was!

Join me on this journey and eventually, I am going to hit my goals!


  1. I think those are excellent goals, especially the one about running a 5k with your son!! Of course, Paris sounds pretty awesome, too!!! I loom forward to watching you fulfill these dreams and goals!! ChEARing you on!!!

  2. Love this! #2 and #3 are my faves and I will see you at the Star Wars 10k in January, as I am running that too!
