Phew!  We’re halfway done!  Everything here at Disneyworld is going great.  I don’t have time for full race reports at the moment because I’m getting ready for bed so we can get a good sleep before the big event tomorrow.  Eek!  Here’s a quick update…

Friday morning I ran the Disney Family 5k as a little warmup to the big events on Saturday and Sunday.  I ran with my Goofy training partner Cori and we had a blast…

 This morning was the Donald Duck Half Marathon and there’s not a lot more I can say other than it was awesome.  The spectators were amazing, running through the Magic Kingdom was awesome and the energy of everyone is unbelievable.  We took it very slow today to save ourselves for tomorrow’s marathon and ended up having a very relaxed and fun race.

And so here we are.  Tomorrow is the big day!  Tomorrow morning I’m going to run the Mickey Mouse Marathon and complete the Goofy Challenge.  Holy crap.  I’m pretty excited and just thankful that instead of stress and worry I’m feeling pretty calm and just ready to go out there and get it done.

Thank you so much to those of you who have contacted me with encouragement and support while I’m down here in Disneyworld.  It means so much to know that others are taking time to send positive thoughts, it makes this whole experience that much more special and I think it is so cool you’ve chosen to share a bit of it along with me.

Hopefully next time I post I’ll be able to say I’m a marathoner!

    Your costumes look fabulous! My friend was just trying to talk me into doing this next year. It’s very tempting. Looks like a blast!

      Oh you totally should. It was so much fun. Definitely not the place to PR (unless you’re in the first corral) but such a fun experience all round.
