Wow, the Disney Marathon weekend was last weekend and I’ve yet to write anything about it. Time to get cracking! Truthfully I wanted to enjoy the rest of my vacation so I didn’t write anything, then my computer died when I got back. Now with a new HP laptop in hand it is recap time!
I was down in Orlando with my parents again. All three of us were signed up for the Buzz & Woody’s Best Friends 5K on Friday, I was signed up for Goofy and my mom was registered for the marathon on Sunday.
We hit up the expo on Thursday afternoon. I grabbed all of my packets and looked at all of the gear for sale.
Ah yes, look at all of the Goofy gear. I looked at it all and didn’t buy a thing.
CONFESSION: I hadn’t made up my mind on what I was going to do. I had signed up for Goofy and I did NOT train for it. I was going to run the half marathon for sure. But a part of me thought that if I could run, walk or run/walk the full, have fun and not injure myself I might give the marathon a shot. But I wasn’t going to make up my mind on that one until after the half marathon on Saturday.
So I looked at the gear but didn’t buy a thing as I didn’t want to have any “I Did It” shirts purchased before the fact since I think that is bad luck. And on that note, I couldn’t believe the number of people wearing various “I Did It” shirts around the park before the races!!
Now, let the recaps begin!
man those are some cute shirts! much cuter than the year i did it. i love that your mom was running the marathon too! definitely weird about wearing the “finisher” shirt before the race…
hope it went well? waiting on edge to hear 🙂
I love the purple shirts, I must do Disney, looking at it for 2012!!

was out yesterday with friends of mine who just got back from Goofy. They had a blast, but missed the 5K!
Luckily your weather was better than last years…
You coulda walked/run the full with me, it was definitely a new PW but damn it was fun.
Wish we could have met up but I know it was a crazy week for me too.
I never buy event gear until after I have done it. I hate when people wear the actual event shirt in the event! I think its bad luck too! Sure, I sometimes end up missing out on some cool stuff, but its still my rule. Can’t wait to read the recap!
