2 Weeks

2.13.2012

It honestly seems like ages ago that I told you guys I would be running in the Disney Princesses 1/2 Marathon.

In reality I first mentioned it back in November in this post. Which I guess to some degree was ages ago, but here we are only 2 weeks away from race day!

Crazy.

Had you asked me this time a year ago if I would run 13.1 miles at any point, ever in my life, you probably would've been greeted with a resounding laugh. No, seriously. I never considered myself a runner (and if I'm being honest, I'm not sure I do now) so the idea of running for 13.1 miles would've been comical.

Yesterday, my friend Brooke and I had our last long run before the race of 14 miles. That's right. 14 miles. That is a double digit number. I could make myself sound awesome and make y'all think I'm a beast and say that it wasn't hard and I feel great today.

That would be a lie.

It was borderline impossible and I think around the 13 mile mark, we both uttered phrases like "I hate my life" and "I think my organs are shutting down".

We have a gift for the theatrical side of life.

Training has been tough stuff, but I am so proud of us for sticking to it. I know that the next 2 weeks is a time to bump it up and not slack off. I do not want to finish injured or last!

Don't worry. I have not preconceived notions of winning or being in the top of anything, but I just don't want to be last or even at the back of the pack.

Another thing that I am way excited about is simply going to Disney World! I've never been and this is going to be such a great experience!

Any suggestions on rides/shows?
