Day two of the adventure.  Went exactly according to plan which was to go pretty easy but still go under 2 hours.  Perfect.  First mile with the crowd (25,000 total with 8 waves) made anything but slow impossible.  After that just kind of found my relaxed groove.  Some  highlights: Mile 5 I picked up after some lady rudely said 'don't cut me off' as she was weaving through the crowd and I was zagging myself.  I said to myself, fine how about I just pass you and that won't be a problem. ;) Also I was looking to have a few spots where I pushed the pace to to mix it up a little.  Mile 6 was through Magic Kingdom and I stopped to get my picture in front of the castle, which was all lit up.  (only time I stopped.) Picked it up again at 12 and 13 to mix it up again (and to finish strong) Nutrition and hydration seemed to work well and I had hardly any salt build-up eventhough humidity was pretty high.  Now time to be smart and get ready for the big one... (maybe too late to be smart)

Oh and this 2:30 am wake up call (1:30 Wisconsin time) is nuts. about 4.5 hours of sleep last night.  Will try and squeeze in a bit of a nap today.  (yesterday morn. I went back to bed for 3 hours.)

Part 1 of the three-headed monster.  Big crowds and families having 'fun' kept my speed in check...big time.  About 10,000 participants in 4 waves.  I was in wave 2.  Very slow going in first mile.  Realized I wasn't going anywhere and just relaxed.  This really was just a warm up and I treated it that way.  Finally found some space by mile 3, but still kept things in check.  Temps not too bad (mid 60s for start), but that humidity is going to be an issue for sat. and sun.

  • RACE DAY: Walt Disney World Family Fun Run 5K
So I leave tomorrow for my little Disney adventure.  Kind of nervous, but pretty relaxed about the whole thing.  No real fancy goals, except to finish.  My main goal is to not PR any of the individual distances because that means I paced myself properly.  In a perfect world, my total time for all three would be 6.5 hours.  We all know we don't live in a perfect world though (even Disney World).  Once again Dave has me physically prepared for the race(s) and the mileage. Now it is up to me to execute the mental part and not screw it up too bad. ;)

Had my annual physical this morning or as I like to call it my annual pat on the back for a job well done.  My doctor runs, bikes and cross country skiis so she gets it.  I may or may not run tonight.
