Hello world!

One day back in August I woke up and decided I was going to run a marathon. Always being up for a challenge I decided I was going to run a half marathon the day before. I proceeded to sign up for the Disney World Goofy Marathon and a half Challenge. Previous to this I never ran more than 10km. I had taken both a learn to run 5km and a learn to run 10km but had never actually ran in a race more than 5km. The race in Orlando took place in January, the temperature was about the same in Toronto as it was in Orlando— freezing. I was able to complete both the half and the full receiving the much coveted Goofy metal.

I had many trials and tribulations throughout both of these runs, which I intend to get into in greater detail later. A few weeks ago I went to Palm Springs to celebrate my friend Sarah’s 30th birthday and all I can say is it was AWESOME!

During this trip I was able to get Lisa and Sarah to entertain the idea of running the Disneyland Half Marathon in September. After returning home they were able to convince their significant others to join in the festivities too! My hopes are to use this blog to document our journey. Let’s see what happens!

So we are the piraterunners!
