No runDisney this time, folks!
I did not register.
For one thing, I have exactly ZERO interest in a comic book themed race. I have thoughts on the lameness of comics, but it is my opinion only, and I have plenty of friends who would vehemently disagree with me.
For another thing- I’ve already done two runDisney events (5 races total so far) this year and am signed up for two more. That’s about all I can take of the walls of walkers and people unprepared for the distance in one year. Yes, Disney puts on a good race and they are a BALL, but they are not for runners, they are for fun. Fact.
That said, if the rumored Star Wars themed Disney half marathon happens in January 2015, I will have to consider it. I may not be on board for Marvel, but I am all about Darth Vader. And one day I would like to run the Disney World Marathon.
But those aside, I’m over RunDisney’s prices, policies, and field of so-called runners. I want to get better, stronger, faster. Disney races are not the place for that. Training is. Smaller, more serious races are. (in my opinion) And I can have fun just about anywhere, it doesn’t require Mickey Mouse to do it.
PLUS — it would be loco to run this one. It would mean 6 races (one of them a marathon) in 8 weeks. 7 races if I get into the Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco. 8 in 8 if you throw the New York Marathon into the mix. (I am not assuming that one!) I’m tired just thinking about that and it is all 7 months away! HA HA
