Pre-race routine:

Met Shaun and walked to our corral.
  • 2h 14m 14s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 10m 15s  min/mile

I planned on running the entire race with Shaun. We were having lots of fun but I started getting pretty bad foot pain that had me thinking about quitting! It hurt really badly.We were running at Shaun's pace and we were doing a run/walk plan which I thought would be good for me but eventually I finally realized that what I needed to do was just run at my normal pace because it hurt too much to walk. SO At about mile 8 I told Shaun I had to stop walking and went off on my own. As soon as I started running at my normal pace the pain got better so I decided to start picking up the pace more and more. The faster I went, the better I felt! We ran the first half in about 1:14 and I did the second half in about an hour. Nutrition was water and powerade.
Post race
Warm down:

Got my Donald medal, got some food, hung out being silly and waited for everyone to finish. After the race Gina stretched me out really good and I worked on my totally messed up calf and foot to try to get it ready for the next day...the marathon.

Event comments:

FUN! I went to Orlando DETERMINED to just do the half marathon. But, the seond I got to Wide World of Sports for packet pickup I knew I would do both. When I got my packet they put the Goofy Challenge bracelet on me and this year they gave us Goofy Challenge shirts! I knew I couldn't have that shirt and know that I didn't do both races. I know it was stupid, but I don't regret it at ALL and I had an awesome PR marathon, so there!
