I'm going to Disney World!!!

Yes folks, I am going to Disney World!

Actually, I am running the Disney World Marathon!

marathon imageI 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 :( 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 :)

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

You’ll never guess what I had for a snack…okay, you’re right – trail mix.DSCN0318

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

Dinner was leftover Peanut Noodles.DSCN0324

Dessert was some random things like apricots and handfuls of cereal. DSCN0328

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

    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
