It seems like every time I take a trip with friends (well, most of the time) we end up having some sort of bad luck along the way.
If you have some time, please join me for a whirlwind story of two girls who were just trying to run 13.1 miles, 858 miles away in one weekend.
Our story begins last May at my bff's bridal shower. I had mentioned to Stacey Marshall that I was going to run the Disney Princess 1/2 Marathon for my 25th B-day and that she should totally join me. Well, she agreed! We signed up, trained separately ( boo!) then waited anxiously for February 26th! Flash forward to Friday February 24th. It was finally time to do this thing!
|Come on Stacey, get with it.. you are dating a pilot! ;)|
|I played a little of this while we circled...|
Finally arriving at 1:00, we got our bags and headed on the Disney magically express to our magical hotel! I just love Disney!
We headed over to Disney's Wide World of Sports for the Runners Expo. Very exciting stuff!
|Getting my bib number!|
|Sweaty Bands galore!|
Then we saw Mr. Jeff Galloway!
Gettin' our pose on with the sign!
And last but not least... Eating Pasta in our cute dining hall of the resort the night before. We were exhausted at this point and still hadn't even ran 13.1 yet. More to come in Part 2!
