Inspired by RunDisney

I haven’t put on a pair of running shoes in a long time. Not even to tour the parks at Disney World, not even for a walk around the block.

Picked up these Brooks from the local Running Room. Feels like walking/running on air!

This past week I laced up for the first time in forever, and set a new goal for myself: to run a half marathon. Not just any half marathon, of course.

The Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon.

It’s a weekend event, with a half marathon, 5K race, fitness expo, and pre- and post-run events.

It’s part of RunDisney, which organizes several races throughout the year on both coasts.

Most people who know me, know that there’s no better way to motivate me to do something (whether its saving money, or getting active) than to drop the word “Disney” in there.

So I made my way down to the local Running Room (which provided amazing service, btw) and picked up these gorgeous Brooks. Next, I plan on signing up for a 5K that will take place on a local waterfront trail.

After one week of starting to ease into running (60 seconds of running and 90 seconds of walking), I’m feeling good–and super excited about this journey!

I want to know–what motivates you to get active?
