Alright Instagram, whether I’m ready or not it’s time for me to get back to running. I don’t know if I mentioned this in a previous post (too lazy to check), but I had to take what seems like a year-long hiatus from running because of a stress fracture that I suffered in September. .
Since then I’ve been nursing myself back to health and doing everything I can to scratch the itch that running always did for me. As a result, I’ve made friends with my gym’s elliptical machine (🤦♂️) and I’ve been going to spin classes (shoutout to @cycleguroo
), which have been a lot of fun and I’m definitely planning on continuing. .
But now, after getting the all-clear from my doctor, I’m going to try to get back into running in earnest. Naturally, I can’t think of a better way to get back into the sport than by participating in this weekend’s #runDisney #PrincessHalf
I’m doing this morning’s #Enchanted10k
and tomorrow’s half marathon. Obviously I haven’t exactly trained for either, but I’m just going to be realistic and try my best. I have no illusions about doing a PR, coming in the top 30, or anything like that. I’m just going to run this race at my own pace, and whatever time I come in that’ll be it. No expectations, just trying my best. .
One thing I have to say about this race, and the overall atmosphere of the #PrincessHalf
, is that it’s really calm here. Between the expo, the corrals, and the general attitude, it’s all really calm and collected. I don’t know, maybe it’s because this is my first #PrincessRace
, or maybe it’s because there’s more women in attendance, but everyone and everything seems really calm and organized. I love it! I wish all the #runDisney
races were like this! .
Anyway, wish me luck with today and tomorrow’s races. Also, I’ll be posting more and more as I slowly getting myself back into the groove of being active on IG again. I have a lot of new pins that I want to show off and plenty of #Disney
pictures that I want to share. .
