Now before you go getting your petticoats all bunched up let me be perfectly clear that we are not canceling the half marathon. Just the location. To whit:
Last week, in an effort to continue our revamped budgeting effort, I was meticulously going through our copious travel plans for 2010. One trip that we are both looking forward to is a visit to Nanny and PopPop C in February where they will be lounging in a vacation home in Florida very near Walt Disney World.
When I proclaimed that I would start training for and eventually run the Disney Princess Half, I shrugged off the fact that we had already planned to go to Florida and Disney World with Nanny and PopPop. We can do both trips, I assured my new husband.
Well, financially I guess we could. Anything is possible, yes? But should we is a completely different question and I think the resounding and the very responsible answer is in fact no.
I was immediately bummed out but intent on finding a similar half close to the time of the Disney 1/2marathon. Enter the National Marathon.
The looped course, in my very FLAT home turf, will allow me to complete my half marathon dreams, and not break the bank. I even pre-registered.
And I’m still calling them princess miles. I still think there’s a little princess left in, no?
Have you made any adult decisions lately? How do you feel about them?
