”Twas the night before Dopey, and all through the parks, not a creature was stirring, not even Mickey Mouse.
The runners were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of medals, danced in their heads.
Okay, yeah, I know – no sleep at Disney!! Lol
But omg guys – we did it! We survived training and taper and now it’s Go Time!!!!
I’m so excited to go “home” today and hit the expo and meet a bajillion new friends and have a truly epic weekend full of fun and frivolity and All the Miles. Yay!!!!!
Hope everyone’s final week of running went well, and that you’ve all reviewed the event guide and know where you gotta be when. I have been studying it like it’s the Patriots playbook. 😁😂
I also have a printed map of the expo vendors, with my must haves circled. (Seriously sparkle athletic – did you actually really put out a rose gold visor? Way to guarantee I stop by!!!)
I feel…oddly calm about running this weekend. Maybe my training was spot on after all. Maybe because I’ve been through this once already I know that the marathon will hurt, but that I will finish. Or maybe it’s because I know that I don’t give up, I don’t give in, I just finish what I start.
And tomorrow – starts 48.6 miles in 4 days.
To all of you running this weekend, no matter the distance, may it be an epic voyage. And may you get all the merchandise, photo ops and gram marnier slushees your little heart desires.
See ya real soon!!
