I'm going to Disney World!!!

Yes folks, I am going to Disney World!

Actually, I am running the Disney World Marathon!

 I'm going to Disney World!!!I really really have always wanted to run Disney World for a lot of reasons and I keep hearing about it buzzing around the blogs. I knew I couldn’t let this year pass me by! So, on a whim I went for it and signed up. (I had mentioned it to Ben, but we never actually discussed it, which is why I didn’t announce it until I let him know.)

I think we are going to just make a mini-weekend of it so we’re not going to be able to hit all the parks, but I am so excited!

The only bummer is Matt (my little bro) is obsessed with all things Disney and is going to be devastated that he can’t go icon sad I'm going to Disney World!!! I am guilt ridden. Boo.

*Note:  This may be my last full marathon as I think the distance is kinda brutal, training takes over your life and subjects your body to a lot of stress. I love running, but I remember not looking forward to running in the height of my first marathon training. I think the half-mary distance is my fave icon smile I'm going to Disney World!!!

Okay, let’s back up and talk about food…

I packed a bunch of different things for lunch – big salad with hummus, cherries, Food Should Taste Good chippers and yogurt. dscn0316 I'm going to Disney World!!!

You’ll never guess what I had for a snack…okay, you’re right – trail mix.dscn0318 I'm going to Disney World!!!

After work I stopped at TJ’s and Costco for a few staples – I am almost out of Almond Butter = Emergency!!!

I also picked up some kiwis. Trader Joes says 1 serving is 2 kiwi and if Trader Joes says it I am going to go with it. dscn0326 I'm going to Disney World!!!

Dinner was leftover Peanut Noodles.dscn0324 I'm going to Disney World!!!

Dessert was some random things like apricots and handfuls of cereal. dscn0328 I'm going to Disney World!!!

Now I have some work to wrap up before I fall asleep…

Wait, I can’t because my phone is breaking…it’s been doing this on and off all day. I ordered a new (fancy!) phone and it should be arriving any day now!!!dscn0330 I'm going to Disney World!!!

    Awesome! I was talking to someone the other day about Disney – I think he was doing the Goofy something…where you do the half and then the full? He said the full marathon course is pretty awesome and the spectators are great. I want to say he even noticed Disney characters cheering :)

    Sounds fun! I’ve been looking into that race or the Goofy Challenge which is a full marathon on Saturday and a half marathon on Sunday, but not sure if my wallet can afford a FL trip right now! Have an awesome time
