Running again and other mischiefs
It is not as if I had been sitting idle since my last post, on the contrary I have been busy. I know it is a lame excuse and one that no New Year resolution helped alleviate. The truth is I write for a living. There are the blogs, the Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest accounts and the avalanche of emails, press releases, pitches and other Pulitzer Prize winning activities.
So we went our merry way from the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, onwards to The Studios. At Disney Hollywood Studios my iPhone rebelled against the rain as I tried taking pictures of the Osborne Family Spectacular of Dancing Lights. So much for race pictures!
My iPhone dried and decided to come back to live. The only casualty of that night was my wig, so this princess is going to be shopping for a new Merida wig.
The next day I returned to Epcot and so did the sun. Given enough time the memory of this wet and at times miserable race will become a fun story to tell.
I have been twice to Orlando since the race and will do so again in March. I can’t wait. In the meantime I signed up for three more races. One here in Birmingham is coming up real soon. The Mercedes Half Marathon will be my second non Disney race.
I’ll follow that one up running again in April by joining the Ironman 70.3 team of a friend. Her husband will do the swimming, she’ll bike and I’ll run the Half Marathon. The race takes place in New Orleans and we aptly named our team “For Food, Booze & Bling” – stay tuned for updates from The Big Easy.
