Another attempt at fitness on the road

I seem to have a theme of attempting to get back to my old level of fitness on the road with a few good days, then I fall off the bandwagon again.  I recently signed up for the Walt Disney World half marathon in January.  That way I figure I have plenty of time to train.  Now I just have to do it.  I need to hold my blog readers responsible for keeping my motivation up.

I last did a 1/2 marathon in 2005 before I started traveling.  I would run outside at a park 5 days a week in the heat of the South Carolina summer.   It has been 5 years since then and my fitness is much lower than it has been since my freshman year of college.  This time I will be fighting weather in various places as well as crappy hotel treadmills.

  1. Hey, Grace, it’s toomanybooks from FT.

    My wife is going to do the Disneyworld Princess half-marathon at the end of February. Several of her friends are going and she’d love to add you to the crowd.

    Send me a FT PM.

  2. I hadn’t even heard of the Princess 1/2 Marathon and I wish I had before I signed up for the normal Disney 1/2 Marathon since the Princess one has a more generous time limit. I’m not vain, but I also like to pass people every once in a while instead of finishing last. I just signed up for the Kiawah Island 1/2 marathon in December. If I actually make it around to it I’ll make sure to sign up for the Princess.

  3. Good Luck Grace!!!
    We could do a time-trial in October (you’re going to UGC right?) I’ve given up on treadmills for a while – I just do long runs on the weekend & yoga during the week.

  4. I found a trail right by my house. It’s 1.6 miles each way to walk to the trailhead, 1.6 miles each way to a 5k loop so I can easily scale the run however I need to by driving to the trail or walking to it.

  5. Excellent topics. I really like this. I found this online that, Personal Fitness Trainer in Upland California gets OC residents into mind boggling shape with intense semiprivate personal fitness training and nutritional consulting. Gets you in shape physically, as well as emotionally and spiritually.
