Sometime during the last few months of 2012 one of my very good friends convinced me to sign up for the 2013 Disney Half Marathon in September (for those of you who don't know, a half marathon is 13 miles). I wasn't too sure about it because I wasn't in the best of shape, and I wasn't too fond of running. Mainly because I couldn't even go a block without being out of breath. However, she painted a very magical picture of how awesome this race was going be. Saying that we were going to run through the park and the Disney characters were going to be there to cheer us on. And we would get these pretty medals at the end of the race. She made it sound like it was going to be uber fun, so I said "sign me up!" .
