"Galloway Runner"

That's me!
If you had asked me 15 months ago if I was a runner I would have laughed in your face.
Then I signed up for a Disney race and learned about this training program that Jeff Galloway developed.

I was hooked. 

His run/walk/run method and magic miles helped me break through my "I can't do this" mentality. I quickly found that I had changed my can'ts to cans and my dreams to plans.

I ran the WDW 10K in 2014. Followed by several 5ks and an amazing first half marathon in October.

I got to meet Jeff at the Expo during the Star Wars half marathon weekend and it was such an awesome experience. He told me he was proud of me and to keep moving forward. I kept his words in my head all weekend (see my next post for details on how I did)

Jeff is just as nice and encouraging as I had hoped he would be. Definitely one of my favorite and most memorable moments of the race weekend.

Are you a Galloway runner? Who inspires you and/or keeps you motivated?
