Saturday morning we opted out of going to the 5k and slept in a bit since Amanda didn't get much sleep the night before with her eye, so we got ready and headed to the expo early to get there right as it opened. It just so happened that about a thousand other Princesses had the same idea! The line was wrapped around the hotel. Lucky for us, Jules and L got there even earlier so we were able to jump in line with them.
We all headed straight to the KT Tape booth to get our body parts taped up. L got her feel, Amanda got her ankles, and I got a knee and ankle. They will tape one body part for free, but if you want multiples, you have to buy a roll of tape, which really isn't a big deal if you're going to continue to use it. I used some of Jule's tape (thanks lady!)

We shopped around a bit more and then I headed to the Art of Animation resort, where J was waiting for me. I picked him up, got Amanda, and we headed to Downtown Disney to grab some lunch. Sharon and her husband, D, checked into the hotel and met us at Wolfgang Puck Cafe. I had a delicious Curry Chicken salad, Amanda had a Chicken Caesar, and Sharon had a Cobb...we all thoroughly enjoyed our choices. Amanda's husband, also known as J, had arrived, so she went to meet him. Sharon hadn't been to the expo yet so I took her and we left J and D to do their own thing (scary thought, right?)
We picked up Sharon's bib, and she got moved up a corral at the Runner Relations booth! The line for the shirts wasn't nearly as painful as it was the day before, and neither was the official race merchandise booth. We walked back through the booths and she made a few purchases. We saw the official countdown clock to the half marathon and had to get a picture with it.
Once we were done we headed back to the hotel to chill out beside the pool until the guys came back from wherever it was that they went (Port Orleans Riverside to the arcade I believe it was). Once they arrived, we decided to meet for dinner at the resort's cafeteria. We ordered my favorite food to carb load on - pizza!
Next up...the race!!!
Until next time,
