Goofy Challenge Goals

As you may know, based on the fact that I've mentioned it close to a million times, I'm running the Goofy Challenge this weekend! The fact that I will be running 39.3 miles in two days still doesn't seem quite real. But my bags are packed and I'm ready for some warm Florida sun after a chilly start to the week here in the DC area. This is most definitely not a race for me, it's an experience.  So my goals for this weekend are pretty simple: FINISH & FUN.

It would be nice to not have a PW in each race, but as long as I cross that finish line and collect my medals, I don't really care.  I don't know if I'll ever do another Disney race so I want to make the most of it.  This also happens to be my first ever trip to Disney World so I want to take it all in.  I'm planning to run with my camera and stop to get pictures with a lot of the characters, particularly during the marathon on Sunday.  I'll also have my phone and may attempt some mid-race social media updates, we'll see.  I read that the parks open at 9:00am, and even with a 5:30 start I'll still be running on marathon day, so if the opportunity to ride a ride presents itself, I will take advantage!

Please, please, please go on a ride in the middle of the marathon. I'm sure it would be Coach-approved, right?
