Your taste in music makes you uniquely you :-) Disney has always been a favorite of mine. My 13 year old and I still love to watch Disney movies (and cartoons). LOL...

Do you have an extra twenty minutes on your run this weekend? If so, how about upping your pace to 11 minute miles? I know that is SO slow for you, but that doesn't matter. What matters is going the distance, and feeling good about it. I would even suggest doing run/walk intervals if you need to.

I think we all go through these kinds of emotions. I have a race this weekend, then I'm looking at a couple of more LOOOONG weekends of training before IM FL. I so want it to be OVA!!! LOL...

Hang in there!

I can so relate to this... only on a much smaller scale. I have no desire to do a full marathon. But - even in my lesser distances, I sometimes just feel like it is straining to
"train". Right now, I am enjoying the freedom of running to RUN not to train.

Ultimately, I think all of us crazy runners are not really aspiring to complete certain races... we're aspiring to be runners-for-life and these races are just milestones in our career. The marathon is not the ultimate goal... the goal is to continue enjoying it... if it is not fun, switch your goals.

OR - look forward to getting through the marathon and having that under your belt... and maybe never do it again. HAHAHA!

I agree with Wes. Try dialing back your pace on the 20-miler and just enjoy being outside. Let that run tell you how you feel. If you can't finish it, then listen to your body. The last thing you want to do is end up not running at all for months like I did. It's a long road back then. Have fun with it!
