Today I completed the virtual WDW half marathon, by covering 13.1 miles, all the while listening to some fun podcasts.

I know it wasn’t fast – but I did the best I could under the circumstances, as my knee seems to be determined to make me cranky already this month. Here’s hoping that I can rest it and heal up quickly, as tomorrow is the longest run of the lot scheduled!

Like I mentioned yesterday, I’m doing this to honor my close friends and his family, and to raise donation for the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism. If you’d like to learn more about the Foundation and their fantastic efforts, or if you’d like to make a donation, I’ve provided a link right below here.

Please consider a donation to this worthy cause!

Tomorrow, I’ll roll the dice and see how far this knee will let me go. I plan to do interval running, not worrying about pace or final time. I’ll head out right as the sun comes up, starting at the San Clemente Pier and waddling north to the Laguna Beach Lighthouse. Then I’ll turn around and waddle back. If I do this right, my finish line will be on a beach path just south of Dana Point. We shall see…..we….shall…..see…..

Big morning, tomorrow. Going to turn in early and get some rest. My planned water stops will be at gas stations along the way, whenever I feel like I need it. Maybe scoring a taco at Taco Loco in Laguna too!!!
