Traveling through life on foot

Good Morning from Orlandy :)

I started the day with a short run through Downtown Disney. It was so empty compared to the crowds of last night! Downtown Disney

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.

So, my kicks are always the first thing in my bag! I have explored so many places this way and I love traveling through life on foot :)running shoes

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. Flippers

I scored some yogurt from the store for my breakfast…IMG_7243

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!IMG_7245
I love running through Florida, but I’m always scared an alligator is going to jump through the bushes and attack me! IMG_7238

Who know’s what’s hiding in this water???Florida pond

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…

    How fun to see Disney while running. I have never been to the one in Florida, but I’ve been to the land of CA. The hubby has never been, so I plan to take him one day. maybe we’ll have to run around!

    I’m so jealous you are in Disney! .. If an alligator DOES jump out, run in zig zags! Because their eyes on on the sides of their faces or something they can’t process a zig zag pattern as fast

    Dryer sheets in your shows? Genius! My shoes end up smelling like toxic waste dumps aftr a couple months. Ends up stinking my car, office and room to high heaven. Thanks for the idea!

    I think Florida has a certain smell, too. Every time we land there, the smell comes back to me. Kind of strange, but kind of comforting, as well.
    I hope you have fun at Disney. How fun to explore alone…you’ll get to do what you want and see what you want, when you want to. Sounds like heaven to me.
