Hahahahahaha, nope he took an extra day off. 😩 It was okay, though. I met Nicki at MK for a bit, then hobbled back to CSR. I cannot move without my feet and thighs screaming. No parks for me today, should be a fun drive home!

Saw a ton of princesses at Epcot yesterday. Road the new TT, my design station didn't work, my DH and I thought the car went faster on the outdoor track than we remember.

Today we head MK and have the firework dessert buffet tonight.

Not feeling too bad. But wearing shoes I bought to match my costume has causes mt IT band to flare up and I haven' t had that for a few years. I knew it could happen but was willing to take a chance to complete my outfit.

CONGRATS fellow PRINCESSES!!!

I ran a good race. Unfortunately Disney has my official time as clock time even though I started in Corral B. Hopefully they'll fix it. I think my tag must not have picked up at the start line? I had no 5k split even though I ran over the mat (and I did at the start, too!) and took a picture of the 5k marker.
My Garmin time was 2:33:50 which is only about 4-5 minutes off of my PR. My "official" time is about 2:41:xx which is still totally fine. I emailed runDisney about this issue so we'll see what happens. I've heard thru the grapevine that this is not an uncommon problem and they will fix my time. Not that it really matters but it's a point of pride since I ran hard!
I ran negative splits. I had some issues with the humidity for sure. Probably if I had started less conservatively I would have PR'ed.
I had issues with race day transportation (we stayed offsite). I had arranged car service for me so my family could have our rental car. The day before the race the car service canceled on me due to road closures. Really? So I took the rental car and arrived at Epcot at 3:15am. I saw that there was a runner's drop off area so the car service was wrong. My family took the hotel shuttle at 8:15am and arrived at Epcot soon after I finished.
I changed clothes in the car (which was an interesting feat since I needed to change everything! ) and met them at the monorail. We went to Magic Kingdom and arrived by 9:30am! We had a great day at MK and then went back to Epcot to eat at Hacienda. I love their margaritas! We were finally back in the hotel by 8pm. Quite a long day!
My fitbit thinks I went 23 miles yesterday - 13.1 at the Princess and nearly 8 extra miles of pushing a stroller around the parks!

Finished my very first 1/2 marathon....my IT band just killed me ended up walking about 3 miles, but I did it!!!!! I do have o say for my first runDisney event I was highly disappointed, I thought it was disorganized, unmarked, and not very helpful or informed volunteers. Not sure if I will do it again.

We did it! DD hit her first sub 2:30, DH and I were just seconds faster than our Jan 1/2 time. Given the humidity we are thrilled with our times. I ran in 3:03. Can't imagine how the race would have gone if the sun was beating down on all of us. Reminded me of Tower of Terror.

First time also that i didn't need an ice bag at the end too! DD and I had massages- best money spent ever. I swear this is why I feel better than I had expected today.

Race was crowded. Had to weave and squeeze through other princesses a lot. That stretch of Grand Floridian road was the worst for congestion in my opinion. Miles 10-12 were tough with all the ups and downs of the road/ramps. I just wanted to run but hills just aren't my best.

Wish Disney would make the Princess route different than the WDW half to make it unique. All their other races have a unique route - this one should too. Felt too much like Jan's race.

crowds were high! I should have gone with my gut and had myself moved up a coral. Was surprised by how many people I had to try and pass that first hour. Camera stopped working so I didn't get as many pictures as I wanted
