I'm a huge Disney fan and even started a blog about it just to have someplace to post all the pictures I take when I visit the park. I also like to run. A couple years ago I was out of shape and needed to kick start a way to exercise and lose some weight while still enjoying all of those tasty Disney Corn Dogs and Pineapple Whips and Test Pilot Grill Burgers (you know the ones with the Tangy sauce and Blue Cheese.......ummmm Blue Cheese)..... Well I used little things to motivate me like 5K's trying to improve my times with each one as I worked of the Fat and found the runner that once lived inside HE FAT. I started a Facebook Page called the Death of HE FAT as I worked my way to a skinnier person. I used the page to motivate myself and others by setting challenges and fun ways of keeping the exercise going. Whether it was swimming challenges or running challenges --whatever it took. Most recently I did what I called a Virtual Run from Long Beach to Canada which I'm just about to complete this week and I had changed my Death of HE FAT page into HE FAT's Virtual Fit Club asking friends to join and Virtually run or workout with me. With this Virtual Run ending this week I was trying to think of what the Next Virtual Run should be and of course a Disney Run came to mind. I mapped it out on Yahoo Maps and it is 2,500 miles from Disneyland to Disneyworld..... A Virtual Run that if you did about 24 Miles a week would take almost exactly 2 years. I thought it would a fun way to motivate others as well to get into better shape. It would be amazing if after the possibly 2 year Journey I could plan a trip back to Disneyworld at the end of the journey. Maybe saving or putting away money for the end of the Virtual Run in order to get back to Disneyworld for the first time in years for real.
If anyone is interested in being a part of this Journey let me know.
Here is He Fat's Virtual Fit Club Facebook page if anyone wants to join this Virtual Journey. You can post your results and share you Virtual Run with each other as we make our way across the United States.
