It’s 11:30 and I’m going to bed. I have all of my stuff laid out for the morning. I don’t want go risk being late. (picture 1)
Woke up at 2:40am, which is pretty close to when I normally go to bed. And I slept terribly. I went to bed at 11:30, and it took me about half an hour to fall asleep, then I woke up every half hour. I was just so nervous about oversleeping! I had two alarms and a wake-up call set!
My running pants say it all. (picture 2)
It’s 3:30 and I’m on a bus headed to the race. There were race buses lined up as far as I could see, and that was just for one hotel! Seventeen thousand people run this race, almost all of them women. And from the look of this bus, most of them are in tiaras and tutus. I’m wearing big silver mouse ears that are probably going to drive me crazy during the race.
It’s 3:45 and this is just crazy. Running princesses as far as the eye can see, walking to the race start. (picture 3)
It’s 4:20 and I finally found the media tent. It was worth the walk though: I was the first one to use a port-a-potty. That’s never happened before, and will never happen again. Disney is totally spoiling me.
I just passed by a table full of pastries. I didn’t even want one. What’s the matter with me? Oh yeah, I remember: I don’t want to throw up a cheese Danish on the race.
4:45 Headed to the start. It’s a 25 minute walk. That’s so not right. I’m so tired!
