Disney's Fit For A Princess Expo - Day 1
Disney's Fit For A Princess Expo - Day 2
This was it! I kept waking up through the night, terrified that I was going to oversleep (even though I had 2 alarms set and a wake up call for 2:30 a.m.).
I jumped up at the first alarm and stood by the phone waiting for the wake up call, which was Sebastian singing "Under the Sea" (nice touch, AoA!) I grabbed a quick shower, threw my outfit on, and met Sharon downstairs to catch a bus to ride to the pre-race area. We got right on and in no time at all we were there...walking through a sea of people to get to the festivities.
I was waiting for Amanda, Jules, and L to get there, so we did a lot of standing around and taking it all in. Soon, they started calling out corral letters to start heading to the start line. The other girls hadn't yet arrived, so Sharon and I hugged and she headed to her corral while I waited for them. Finally they got there and Amanda and I had to get a picture -
I couldn't believe it! Amanda and I were beginning our journey to finishing our first half marathon! I had plans to follow my run/walk intervals, but threw them to the wind as we headed toward the Magic Kingdom. I wanted to run as much as I could in between characters and water stops.
|Awesome volunteers cheering us on!|

We veered off into Tomorrowland where the music got to Amanda and she jumped over and started dancing with one of the volunteers! He was such a good sport about it :)
|Check it out!|
Check back tomorrow when I finish my recap of my first runDisney race and my first half marathon!!
Until next time,
