I could have written this article myself. But I didn’t. ¬†You should read it anyway.

Wonderful.

 

PRACTICING YOGA WHILE FAT

I’ve been wanting to try Yoga again but have been terrified of the reactions I’ll get because even though I’m fit…I’m fat. And yes, you can be both. But I love yoga and I have to get over my fear of judgment because really…it’s their problem and not mine. I don’t care about anyone’s opinion of me any other time, so why on earth do I let the thought of Yogi judgment paralyze me?

I guess I am human after all. Dammit.

So it’s no secret I’m a Disney fan. Seven years ago one of the biggest motivators in my even considering a half marathon was a newspaper ad announcing the Inaugural Disneyland Half Marathon. The medal was so shiny:

I was way too scared/lazy/out of shape to even make an attempt at that first event. In fact it was five years before I crossed the finish line and earned a medal. I have a blog of my experience HERE.

But Disney races are like Doritos, you can never be happy with just one. And this year? Disney announced a new challenge:

DUMBO.

Dumbo consists of a 10K (6.2 miles) on Saturday followed by a half marathon (13.1 miles) on Sunday. So you get a medal for each race and a bonus medal for finishing both the same weekend. Three medals in two days. Woohoo!

Today Disney released the Jeff Galloway Dumbo training plan. I haven’t had a chance to look at it yet but it’s linked HERE.

I have a countdown on the top right of this blog. Dumbo is Labor Day. I always said I’d enjoy running right around the time elephants could fly. I never figured Disney into that equation. LOL!

I’m so excited I can barely stand it.

I have this habit of thinking about blog posts in such a way that I’m certain I must have typed them. Then I look at my post history and oops…no I didn’t. Like my post explaining how Dietbet works. Nope. Or the one explaining how I did and how a bet ends. Nope. Granted the events in Boston clearly shook me up a bit but talk about flaky! There were also a bunch of posts I’d intended to publish about upcoming races, a couple on previous races and advice for running newbies. Do you see any of those posts? Of course not.

I know, it’s just embarrassing at this point. So many more posts are coming. I’ll just apologize for the flood in advance.
