The Road to runDisney: Little Victories

One year ago, I couldn't run for a minute, let alone a mile.

One year ago, my lungs (And legs) protested at the softest suggestion of cardiovascular activity beyond a stead power-walk.

One year ago, running was a pastime that I regarded as admirable, but personally unattainable.

Two days ago, I ran six miles.

Now, I know that to you super-intense, hardcore running folk, that's just kid stuff- not even a 10k. But for me, it is so much more. It's a victory, proof that I can accomplish things I never dreamed I could. It's a blessing and an encouragement that shows me what I'm made of. It is a source of pride, and it is a reason to celebrate. Whenever the topic of running comes up in conversation, I emphatically declare that taking this leap was the best choice I've ever made, and I truly believe that. I've been given such a gift in running, and I'd like to thank all of you for coming along with me. I know that some weeks, this series can be a little boring and that some weeks I don't have much to say, but I love sharing the highs and lows and little victories with all of you.

That said, I'd love to know what you would like to see in this series! It'll be a few months before I can register for any Disney races, but I want to keep up with Disney-related running content until then! Please leave some of your suggestions in the comments below!

Again, thanks so much for the support along my journey, and I can't wait to keep it up!

Love and pixie dust,
Becca :)
