2020 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

Sunday, January 12th, 2020

We just got home from another Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend.  As usual, I drove down Wednesday and the family joined late Thursday evening.

Thursday morning, was the 5K.

Friday morning, I ran the 10K with Mackenzie. She got second place in her age group!

Saturday, I ran the half marathon with Kimberlie and Tristan.

On Saturday, Rilianne ran 100m kids race.

And this morning, I ran the marathon — completing the Dopey Challenge.

The weather was brutally hot this year. They actually cut a mile off of the course, but after I already passed that point. So I did complete the entire distance.

On the way home, I had a good meal at my favorite steakhouse – Saltgrass!

2020 Red Nose Half Marathon

Saturday, January 4th, 2020

This morning was supposed to be Kimberlie’s last long run in preparation for the Walt Disney World Half Marathon. I told her we were going to get up early and run 13 miles. What she didn’t know is that I was going to drive her over to Columbus to run a free half marathon!

Usually this race falls on the same weekend at Disney, but every few years I am able to participate. The course was beautiful and I like how they changed it from the last time I ran this race. We actually ran the last mile or so over the river in Alabama!

Houston County High School held its Cross Country banquet this evening at a local conference center.  Since Mackenzie trains at the high school, she was included too.

2019 Al Toll 5K

Saturday, February 9th, 2019

This morning, Mackenzie and I ran the Al Toll 5K.  The weather was perfect, but Mackenzie was a little off her game. She won first overall female at the race for the past two years but this year a local cross country team showed up discouraging her. She still did a great job.

Mackenzie ended up with 2nd place in her age group and I received 1st place in my age group.
