I completed the Disney World Half Marathon this weekend in 3 hours and 12 minutes. Unfortunately, I was also supposed to do the marathon, as part of the Goofy Challenge. My legs were so sore on Saturday, that I made up my mind then, that I would not attempt to run OR walk the marathon. As of today, the legs are still sore, so I don’t regret the decision.
The hardest part of deciding to rack up a DNS (do not start) is all the dang money spent on the entry fee. At least I know that some of that is going to charity.
Sometimes you have to know when you are not ready to race, and be prepared to call things off. There is always next year I guess, or not.
