“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” - Walt Disney

Definitely Doc

"Appearing a bit pompous at times, this self-appointed lead of the group has a habit of getting his words and ideas mixed up.  Easily befuddled, Doc’s spectacles often slip a little too far down on his nose as his words often tend to get mixed up.  Overly gracious and highly efficient in his own mind until an important decision is necessary and his nerves take over, preventing any relevant decision from being made.  A little nervous, Doc never seems to know what to do with his hands." - http://crushable.com/

I have a feeling that Doc is probably the dwarf I'm most like most often.  I'm a planner and tend to spend a lot of time thinking through things over and over again in my mind.  Ask me a question and I generally have an answer, although getting the words from my brain to my mouth doesn't always work...  And I definitely have a tendency to be a know-it-all... (ducks head in embarassment).

When it comes to my running, I've reached the point where I feel fairly confident in what I'm doing.  I can carry on intelligent conversations with others and speak reasonably knowledgeably regarding a fairly wide variety of running topics (and especially about Disney races).  However, I am by no means an expert.

So I'm placing myself in the hands of those who are.  I have joined the Dallas Galloway running group to train for my first Marathon - Disney 2012.  I had some concerns regarding having to miss some training runs due to schedule commitments this fall, but I was able to email back and forth with one of the group coordinators and get it worked out.  I'm really excited about getting to run with a group and having the motivation, support, and accountability that comes with it.  Training starts May 21st...so...this whole marathon thing is really starting to feel real!
