Only the power of the Force may keep me running.

I’ve signed up for the Jedi Challenge— running both the Star Wars 10K and the Star Wars Half Marathon at Disneyland in January 2014.

When Disney announced the Star Wars Half Marathon weekend, the geeky promise of this event was too much for me, especially after missing out on the Avenger’s Half-Marathon Weekend.

I’m a half-hearted runner, but I can be convinced by themes and costumes. Not to mention Darth Vader at Disneyland (the video alone was strong persuasion).

I’m not completely unprepared.

I’ve run a half marathon previously (Tinker Bell Half-Marathon in January) and I’ve posted before about the time Jason and I ran as superheroes. Reviewer Jason will be joining me again during the weekend to run the half, as well as Mark (5K) and Lisa (half) as we combine fitness with the Force.

Feel free to send costume ideas!

Kallen casually blogs about her running on Kallen in Motion.
