I spent all of last weekend trying to control the jealousy monster roaring inside of me every time I logged on to Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram due to all of the posts from my friends running in the events during the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. This weekend I get to travel to California to run in the happiest place on Earth during the Tinkerbell Half Marathon. I’ve got a late flight Friday after work and an early wake up Saturday to cheer on friends who are running the Tinkerbell 10k, then a day in the parks before getting ready for Sunday’s Half Marathon.
I want to give a monumental sized thank you to everyone who donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital last year and helped me reach (and exceed) my goal of $1,500 for this race weekend. As promised the girls at Sparkle Athletic are keeping me at my word and have provided a sparkle skirt & wings for this weekend’s event. I will run and sparkle and pick up a great looking addition to my runDisney bling collection.
This will be my 3rd half marathon weekend in a row. After this I am looking forward to 2 weeks of not racing, however I will be in full training mode for the Mercedes Marathon coming up in 1 month.
Are you running during Tink weekend?
