Guys! I’m leaving for Disney World today! Annnnd in less that 48 hours I’ll be a marathoner!! Woohoo!! Can you tell I’m excited?!
I just wanted to quickly share my race-day attire with you. I know a lot of people dress up as characters for the WDW Marathon, but since this is my first marathon, I wanted to do something special for me. Soooo I made myself a race shirt!
You like? I made it at MyRaceRagz.
Even better news? The polar vortex is supposed to be totally gonzo by Sunday. The low is in the 50s and the high is in the 70s. You know what that means? I’m going to be racing in shorts!
I’ll also be rocking my fun Lunatik Athletik compression socks, my Nathan Quick Draw water bottle, an arm band to hold my phone so I can take pics with Mickey and listen to music with my kick-ass Bose headphones, Energybits to fuel me through 26.2 miles, my Reeboks (of course), and my new Shwings to add some pizzazz as I fly through the parks! Oh man, how could I forget – my Garmin will be along with me, as well!
(that there is my last run before the big ‘un!)
I’m all packed and ready to jet! I’ll catch up with you all after I run my way through Disney World! I’ll be a marathoner at that point, but don’t worry, we can still be friends.
And if you’ll be awake between the hours of 5:30am-10:30isham EST on Sunday, cheer me on @fitfulfocus! Woohoo!
Do you remember the days leading up to your first big race? Any tricks for the starting line or for after crossing the finish?
