Disneyland Family Fun Run 5K Training Begins

 runners world streak

The Runner’s World 2013 Summer Challenge could not come at a better time.  We are only 94 days away from Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend and my family is not at all excited to begin training.  What gives?!!

IMG_4663Knowing full well that I need to get them in shape for the Family Fun Run 5K on August 31st, I decided to begin slow and walk only a mile after dinner.  My goal was to keep them under the 16 minute/mile pace that runDisney requires.  Slow pace and short walk – easy does it.

We stayed within our neighborhood and walked out .50 miles, turned around and walked back .50 miles.

The husband and tween complained the entire way and swore they were not having fun.  They bonded over their shared misery of being outside in the fresh air exercising.  That’s fine.  Whatever it takes to get them moving….

Please note:  My husband would like it recorded that he actually walked 5.8 Miles today:

  • 1 mile during the Memorial Day parade
  • 3.8 miles walking 18 Holes of golf
  • Plus this last mile with the family

I congratulated him and told him that tomorrow we can ride our bikes in addition to walking another mile….
