Hello friends! Time is flying by and this pregnancy is almost over (38 w 5 days to be exact). It’s been a whirl wind of orders and holiday planning and finishing the nursery. It’s about time I finish up my previous race recaps so that I’ll be all caught up when I can start running again SOON!
The Tinker Bell Half Marathon weekend (geeze, only five months ago now) was quite a bit different from the Star Wars weekend in that I had a tiny running buddy tagging along with me! So the major changes were 1. no celebratory whiskey shot after the races, 2. no time in the parks since I couldn’t go on most rides, and 3. I incorporated walking intervals into my race plan.
It was still an amazing weekend! I really enjoyed staying on property the entire time at the Disneyland Hotel (probably my favorite hotel so far due to the nostalgic feel and the proximity to the expo). I felt very at ease meeting up with several social/running groups including some awesome people from the runDisneyrun community. I also loved my two costumes and had so much fun announcing the pregnancy in that way. Because so much time has passed since this race, instead of writing out many more details I’m going to instead share my favorite pictures.
All in all a fantastic experience. I know there can be a lot of criticism of the women-centric runDisney races, but I had nothing but great things to say about the weekend and I can’t wait to come back in 2016.
