95 days to go…but who’s counting? Well, I am to be honest. Still training, still chasing invisible Pokemon and running at the gym. I THINK I’m getting better. And yes, I’m still nervous to go do this thing. I’ve shaved 30 seconds off my mile, but I’m still doubting myself.
But here is an update on the whole she-bang! We are working with GetAwayToday, a fantastic agency that specialized in fun vacations of all types. You should really check them out. They even have a policy of beating the best price you can find on hotels! Go ahead, put them to the test. They’ll measure up! (Don’t forget to enter mmom10 to save even MORE money!) Then, come run with us.
The hotel I REALLY wanted was The Anaheim Camelot Inn, but it says they’re full. Good for them, sad for me.
So, I will checking in again with hotel info.
Also, RunDisney.com’s Avengers Half Marathon is about sold out! So don’t delay, hurry! And if you see me or MousekeCass in the park remember to say hi and get a small token of our affection. The half marathon, the 10 K, and the gauntlet are still open for registration. There will be photographers along the way, characters to cheer you on, and tons of super cool mementos and experiences to be had. Sure hope to see you there!
There are seriously times I wonder what my husband let’s me get into. Don’t you?
Hey, I can do all things, I tell myself. No problem. I can be anything I want to be. But let’s be honest. I’m a XX old woman (I’m not telling) that has never been a runner! So guess who just signed up for a 5K that is in Disneyland?
Wait! What?!?!? Really?!
Yes, there are races that happen in the wee hours of the morning that go through the Disney Parks. Yes, I am signed up for November’s Superhero’s Half Marathon Weekend, for the 5K mind you, NOT the half marathon.
Here it is, straight from http://www.rundisney.com/avengers-half-marathon/ website:
“Avengers Assemble! Join the Avengers team for the Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend at the Disneyland® Resort – the extraordinary course on Earth hosted by Earth’s Mightiest Heroes! It’s a power-packed weekend of fantastic fun and amazing excitement with mighty runs, incredible surprises, and the chance to take home your own Super Heroes Finisher Medal. Join the fun during the Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend.”
So in November, I, along with my husband, MousekeCassie and her husband, will be making that 700+ mile jaunt to Disneyland for a RUNCATION! (I never thought I’d say or type that in my entire life….) GULP!
I am excited though. I mean, COME ON! Its Disneyland…and I’d do anything to go to Disneyland. On November 11, which I found fitting as I’ll run the Captain America 5K on Veteran’s Day, at 5:30 A.M. I will be jogging/running/walking through my happiest place on Earth along with hundreds of other people. There will be characters galore, photo ops, and TONS of entertainment. This really could be MY kind of race.
So I go walking and running almost everyday. I’ve down loaded an app that helps me gauge how I’m doing and I even started playing PokemonGo with my kids. So now, all I have to do is yell, “Let’s go Poke hunting!” And I have exercise partners. So far, my 4 teens and I have walked/sprinted over 25 miles. Do I understand what I’m doing? Nope, but it is fun to be with my kids. All part of of the training and conditioning to NOT look like a fool in front of the Avengers in Disneyland. Oh my goodness!
Do I expect to win? NOPE. I just want to finish.
