Goodbye April…

30 Apr

You brought us some freakishly un-Springlike weather (though, not so freakish for New England I guess!) and you’re going out with a rainy/drizzly fizzle up here and some pretty serious storms in other parts of the country.

You brought us the Easter bunny and all those goodies he brings to the little kids!

You also reminded us of the true meaning of Easter.

And, April, you got me back on the road. This was a big month of race registrations for me! After hitting up the Marine Corps Marathon and the Georgia Half Marathon in March I was super excited for registration to open up for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend — this was the biggie and I’ve been looking forward to it now for over a year!

When I ran the Goofy Challenge in 2013 I decided I wanted to do it again in 2015 for the 10th Anniversary.

Me and our host back in 2013

Then runDisney went and did something CRAZY!!! They created a new challenge – called, probably pretty appropriately, the Dopey Challenge (5K on Thursday, 10K on Friday, Half Marathon on Saturday and the Full Marathon on Sunday for a total of 48.6 miles!) so of course….I got registered for that!

In April I also entered a lottery to get the opportunity to register for the Paris Marathon (that’s Paris France ya’ll…not one of the imposter Parises) and I got in! So *next* April I plan to travel to the City of Lights and take a 26.2 mile tour!

All this means that April was also the start of some SERIOUS training – and I am counting on you all to help keep me accountable! Cause….lots of miles people!!

So…let’s bid Adieu to April (see, workin’ on that French thing already!) and start getting excited about what May has in store!!

    Congrats on getting in to the Paris Marathon! I just read about another gal who got in too.
    I for one am ready to welcome May! I hope this next month brings you much joy ( and some better weather).
