From Castle to Castle

From Castle to Castle

Today begins my training for the Disneyland event called the Dumbo Double Dare.  It’s a 10K on Saturday Aug 30 (which I am running with my daughter Erin – YAY!)…and a Half Marathon on Sunday Sep 1st (which I am running by myself).  But it’s also V.E.R.Y cool because —- it marks a big accomplishment — I’m going to be running from Coast-to-Coast and Castle-to-Castle in 2013!!

If you run a race (10K or longer) in Orlando right through Cinderella’s Castle and then run a race (also 10K or longer) in Anaheim right through Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, both within the same calendar year —  you earn the Coast-to-Coast medal too!   Walt and Mickey holding hands.  Love Love Love!

So I’m going Coast to Coast this year.  2013.  It’s a great year!

Bring it on.  It’s time to run!

Ciao for now….Diane

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
