2014 was quite the year. I once again started out the year with the gusto. On January 11-12, 2014, I ran in the Walt Disney World Goofy Challenge for the second time in as many years. This challenge was be run the half marathon on Saturday and the full marathon on Sunday for a total of 39.3 miles in 24 hours. It was quite warm for the half marathon, and I ended up just over the two hour mark. However, the next day, the marathon, was quite exciting as I set a new marathon PR at 4:51:10. Now that could be much better; however; I always enjoy the marathon at Disney.
When I completed the Walt Disney Half Marathon on January 11th I also crossed off another goal which was to acquire the URANUS status in Half Fanatics. I accomplished this completing 8 half marathons in 365 days. This goal was a compilation of half marathons in 2013 & 2014. As of the end of 2013, I have completed seven (7) half marathons, so the Walt Disney World Half Marathon on January 11th completed the goal.
In March of this year I joined the Fifty States Half Marathon Club. This is a group of others attempting the same goal of completing a half marathon in all fifty states. It is an awesome group, and we all try to do a meet up at each of the races run.
