Good Morning from Orlandy
One of the most important things I make sure to pack on every trip are my running shoes. I know I may not always be able to get a run in, but I also know I will be super disappointed if I could run and didn’t bring them.
On my run I also found the scene of my pre-Marathon dinner with Meghann (read the Disney Marathon recap here). Flippers! It turns out my hotel is pretty close to a shopping area with this restaurant and a store.
Now I’m enjoying breakfast on the patio and liberally applying sun-block. I’m excited to explore Disney World. I was definitely disappointed that we couldn’t visit the parks when we were here in January, so I’m ready to go!
I love running through Florida, but I’m always scared an alligator is going to jump through the bushes and attack me!
This brings me to Ben and Monica’s conversation of the day…
Me (calling Ben): I made it to Orlando!
Ben: Does it smell like Florida? Does it smell like old people and alligators?
Me: No, I’m in Orlando. It smells like tourists covered in sun block and Mickey Mouse…
