I am very excited about the trip and I am counting down the days until I leave.....15 days! The races for the weekend sold out at record speeds, so unfortunately my mom will not be participating in the races :( However, she has always been my #1 cheerleader, and this weekend will be no different - she will be part of the chEAR squad and chEARing me on for 19.3 miles. After I first registered I was a little sad knowing I would be running 19.3 alone. Little did I know in January that all of that would be changing.
Through social media and our love for running and Disney I have have met several amazing girls that have been very close friends of mine. Jen, Jill, Ramona and I started out being Twitter friends and then started meeting up at races, doing breakfasts, dinners, etc. They are definitely my "best running friends"
A few months ago I found out that Jen was also running Dumbo. Since we both run the same pace for the most part and we are both running it for the fun/memories, it is a no brainer that we run our 19.3 miles together!
Jen and I have had our fair share of fun over the past few months to say the least:
|#TeamRunDisney meetup at the 2013 Publix Half Marathon (March 2013)|
|Our first run together: Big Peach Run for Boston (April 2013)|
|Possum Trot 10K (June 2013) - Ramona, myself, "Creepy Possum", Jen and Jill|
|Peachtree Road Race 10K (July 2013)|
|Post Peachtree BBQ|
|Jen cheering on Ramona and me at Light Up the Corners (August 2013)|
Jen and I have made some awesome memories over the past few months and I can't wait to see what memories are made at Disneyland!
