#Flawless12 OMG I did that?

When I decided at age 35 that I was going to go to Disney and do their 1/2 marathon. Everyone wondered what had gotten in to me. I've never run, never done distance anything (other than short hikes), so why would I want to? My reasoning at that point was "mid-life crisis, trip to Disney by myself, get into shape" take your pick. I surprised them all by following through and actually finishing.

I repeated it several times. I surprised them (and myself) again by managing to do it for the 5th time this past year. The shock was that I did little to no training, but I made the effort and finished the race.
