It's interesting how fast the challenges fill up while the marathon itself takes quite a while. I know there are more marathon slots than challenge slots, but I guess there just aren't as many runners that want to just do the full.
|Only 50%?!?! It's like it's waiting for me.|
I don't know what it is about the WDW Marathon, specifically, that makes me want to run it, but ugggh. I do want to do it again. I don't even know whyyyyy. I hate marathons! It is especially bad when you are as slow as me and it takes you 276 hours to cross that finish line.
Anyone that is a fan of runDisney gets why running their events is awesome (mostly. They still have their issues.) but I could get the thrill of an rD event without running a full.
So why am I all sad and mopey because I can't sign up for 2016 Marathon? It's not that I don't have enough time to train, it's that I have way too much on my plate, including a trip to Europe next spring, so there just isn't room in the budget or PTO at work to fit this in.
I just get all strangely wistful about running it even though when I ran it in 2013, there was a terrible heat wave and it was awful. Why? Why do I want to do this again? Plus, I can't think of any friends to con into this event with me. Good thing I know a bunch of bloggers to follow around. Ha!

There's just something really awesome about marathon weekend that I love. It has a different feel than some of the other runDisney race weekends.
Who signed up for the marathon today? I need to know so I can feel jealous of you. The struggle is real, yo.
