Up by 3:00am. Getting self together and make sure I have all my fun stuff. Bus starts running at 4:00 am. Today I was dressed as Goofy.
I walked on to the bus, no waiting. Weird, but I am not going to complain. Getting there was quite quick since we were at Pop.
Had to walk almost a half mile to the family reunion area. There is now a bag check area, if you have a bag to check, or if your carrying a camel back, or fanny pack. I didn’t bring anything with me in this one. I was able to go through the no bag check side. The police are there with their dogs, and most of them are dressed in swat gear.
I found Amanda, and Chris, and Michael caught up with everyone. They did the Dj playing good music. We were going to get our pictures with the characters this morning,but we had to wait till after the race. Blah…
So we all walked over to the corral side. Corral E.
Oh not bad I thought. Heck I ended up in the last one again. Oh well so did a bunch of other people. We were able to make it to the front of the corral area and watch the other corrals go by.
That’s looking to the right as corral A was coming up to the start line.As each corral went by, you can feel the excitement from everyone. But when you watch, it appeared to have been less kids. Less family fun. But when you look at the pictures you see there was alot of kids.
Finally it is our turn. Amanda and I were getting stiff from standing still, and then you could feel how chilly it was again once we got moving.
When I looked to my left this is what I saw standing at the start line. See, we were up front. 🙂 I was asking Amanda about the intervals we were doing and the dumb people behind us started to complain that we were walkers. I didn’t hear this otherwise I would have said something.
3..2..1.. fire works are we are off! Nice little walk through the parking lot, it is still dark. Sun hasn’t quite come up yet. It is also over cast, and misty rainy. No humidity. Thank goodness. That makes it easier on me and my lungs.
This is just after we entered Epcot. We came in from behind Test track. Sarge was back there getting after runners, issued some push ups. The Disney security guy was having fun saying ,come on in , no lines ,no waiting, and no bag check here. haha In the picture that is China.
Yesterday, I did 3 miles. My buddy here Amanda is over doing the Tink. So I did a 3 miles yesterday. Today I have on my Minnie 10k shirt, since she is doing the 10k. I went out to do a 10k today. My body would not let me. I made it 4.4 miles. My IT band is very inflamed. My toes are still very sore. So I listened to my body and stopped. I was interval running. 2min walk and a 1 minute run. I will get my last 2 miles in today when we head out to walk the dogs.
Happy DAM Saturday!
