What? Me running? Can it be so??

So I’ve decided to take up running with my wife (@Karenvanmil).  Why? For months now I have been very interested and following Carrie Burrows blog posts and tweets about her Run Disney accomplishments.  She has been such an inspiration to me and through her careful pushes, nudges, words of encouragement, and support I brought the idea to Karen to complete a RunDisney event during our next Disney trip (we are fortunate enough to be able to take our kids  on a Disney vacation for the last 3 consecutive years with no plans to stop).  It didn’t take long for her to decide to jump on this idea as she has always had a close relationship with her treadmill so adding a running event to what we both think is the most magical place on earth is like a match made in heaven (like us hehe ♥)

I can’t begin to tell you what this has done to her to me and to us!  First off to have a goal and date set has been huge for both of us in terms of our determination and dedication to get on that treadmill as many days as we possibly can.  It has made us push harder and harder everyday.   Also, Karen mostly, we’ve noticed how much exercising can do for stress.  Each time after a good hard run we both can sense the weight of life/work stresses lifted off our shoulders and the things that would have bothered us before don’t seem to matter anymore.   Our relationship has also seen a renewed boost!  To have a common goal to work together on has been great for us.  We have a renewed energy and boost; we can talk about our runs whats been good whats not.  It allows us to encourage and support each other which I think is huge to keep up in a relationship.

I am very excited about looking forward to the months ahead and training for this personal goal of both of us to complete the Walt Disney Wold Wine and Dine half marathon!  All our Disney vacations have been magical experiences for our whole family and this will add a whole new element that only experiencing will reveal to us!

I look forward to sharing with you my road to the half marathon and my experience there when its done!  Stay tuned …….

    Good for you, dude. But you should add in there the part where you said “I said I would never run….you’d have to run behind me with an AED…” and “yeah….never believe anything I say.” hahaha

I did it for the kids, for the younger siblings and for the fans. But they still gifted me the jersey anyways! My heart goes out to this team! I haven’t felt more connected to a team than this year!! Thank you for giving me the chance to make these memories and for the opportunity to create these memories for your amazing kids! I heard from someone during the season that the days I wasn’t able to make it to a game to suit up the kids would say “awww man there’s no Forecheck today??? Now we’re gonna lose!!!” That stuck with me and I felt awful every time I couldn’t be there. Made putting in the suit worth it! Based on their record this year the def didn’t need me there to win game that’s for sure!! Already dreaming of next season! 💙💙💙 #hockeydad #hockeymascot #hockey #IDidItForTheKids #minoratomhockey #2009Falcons
