It’s Sunday right? I’m all kinds of turned around and upside down with the whirlwind of this week!
I’ll be sure to give a full recap later, but for a quick synopsis:
We dressed up as the countries of Epcot. We ran the Wine and Dine. And most of us celebrated in the after party in Epcot. I was not in the party group. Probably because I did this the night before:
Was it worth it? You betcha. A night with pineapple filled booze, plates of food, the Poly, killer view of Wishes- heck yeah. Beats anything at Epcot for me (um, cause la Cava was closed- if it was open, this might have a different evaluation process.)
So instead of partying at Epcot, this was me after the race:
Yep. Nice little leg drain while ate my banana. On my back in Epcot parking lot. Cause I’m classy like that. But I was in the perfect place at the right time to meet some new friends (more on this later)
Quick re-cap of the race: not my favorite. In hindsight I can find a lot of really great moments. But around mile .25 I was pretty much over it all. Yep. That quickly. I perked up when I ran into some friends around Animal Kingdom. Seriously runner friends are the best! But after that moment I was pretty unhappy until we hit Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I knew the lights were coming, and they would be awesome. And they were.
Will I be back? Possibly. Who are we kidding- probably. But it’s not on my must do list every year. That honor is still held by Tinker Bell and Dumbo Dare Challenge. I guess I’m a Disneyland girl at heart!
I’m heading out the parks for some celebratory drinks and rides with my Mr. Incredible. If you see us, please say hi and let me know how your race went!
Did you follow the race online last night? Did you run? How was your race experience?
