Marathon Maniac. It never crossed my mind that I'd be one. The Disney marathon last year was originally going to be a one-and-done thing. (well, lets be honest--a few years ago, I had no intention of ever running a marathon). Then I decided this year that I needed to try Goofy. And it was miserable. I told Cori on the course at mile 24ish that I was never running another full. I was miserable and just not happy.
Then Faith tells me if I run the Celebration Full, I can become a Marathon Maniac because I will have run 2 marathons in 16 days. I went back and forth on it and finally decided to do it a couple of days before the race. I just wanted to finish it. Not only did I finish, but I felt great, got a huge PR, hit my original time goal from Goofy, and got hooked!
I've now registered for the Breast Cancer Marathon on February 15th. So I'll have run 3 marathons in 15 days. Crazy!
There's so many more I want to do. I want to do the New York City Marathon. Boston would be amazing but I will never come close to qualifying--I have to decide if I would be okay with getting there through the charity route. Chicago. Even locally---Space Coast Full, Dopey, Jacksonville Bank Marathon. Not all right away. *Hopefully* we'll be trying to start expanding our family soon. But maybe one day in the not-too-distant future. And I never thought I'd say that.
It's pure mania. And I'm quite proud of it.
