Not Will Run for Chicago!” Well, with Disneyland races on hiatus, and my 2018 plans to consider a coast-to-coast put aside, I wanted to check an Abbott World Major marathon off my list.

WDW Marathon Training Update – One MONTH To Go!

Hi Friends! Believe it or not, we’re less than ONE MONTH AWAY from the 2018 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend – 25th Anniversary – Presented by Cigna. I am so excited! The bulk of our training is winding down- I have just one more “scary” run until my taper, but otherwise I am feeling great! I just really hope this strength is with me on race day. For now, here’s what my training week looked like:
