Hey everyone. I have been a bad blogger, but I'm back with a fun post. But before I get to the fun. let me just say (by way of a confession) that I really don't think that I will hit my goal of losing 10 pounds this month. Lofty I know... but I wanted to reach for the stars. I will say though, that I have lost 5 pounds and and proud of that. If by some chance I am down 5 this week (come weigh-in on 4/13) I will have indeed lost 10 pounds this month. There will be dancing in the streets. But I doubt that is going to happen. But I press on. The weight is coming off and I am happy about that. I would just rather it not take until the end of time!
But back to the fun. I have registered for TWO races during the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. I will be running the 5K with my mom (my longstanding running partner) and I will be running the 10K with my husband (my newest running partner). Very exciting. We decided on these races after a LOT of deliberation, basically choosing to make our girl's first trip to Disney magical and not all about waiting for their parents to stop running races so they could get to the park and see princesses. However, they will not be missing out on the racing fun, as all three of my girls have been entered in the kids races! The 100 meter dash for Claudia and Madeline and the 200 meter dash for Beatrice. They are excited! Well, Claudia is clueless, but I think she'll have fun if she learns to walk by then that is. She is still contentedly rolling about at 9 months so he has to giddy up just a little by January 2014. She has time!
Just FYI... if you are interested in running the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend you really need to sign up for a race. The 5K and 10K are already sold out, but there is still room in the 1/2 and full marathon races. I think the kids races are open as well. There is VERY limited space left in the Dopey Challenge but room in the Goofy. (NOTE: This info was current as of the post time, but this whole weekend is filling fast!!!)
We also booked hotel but you have to wait for the dining packages to open up. Great deals still available on the room rates, but I would hustle here too if you want something specific. I am very excited about this race weekend as well as it being our first FAMILY trip to Disney World. This will be magical!!!
