Ok 2014, let's do this!
So, I did it, I completed the holiday run streak. Running at least one mile per day from Thanksgiving to New Years. I ended up with a total of 220 miles, the last week was rough and I was really happy to NOT run on January 2nd (plus we got a huge snow storm so it would have sucked to run). It was ridiculously cold a few of the days. Christmas morning was in the single digits. I didn't get my 20 miler in because of a snow storm, but I did manage to do another 3-7-11-18 weekend and that went well so I think I will be fine for the Dopey Challenge.
Santa was REALLY good to me and listened to my request for donations to Dana Farber. I got about $500 in donations over the holidays. My fundraising is going great. I hope I can keep up this pace. I'm almost at $7000.
Plus, I had some last minute emergency travel changes to add to the stress. I thought that the 5K started later in the morning Thursday and I would have time to get my number on race day, then I got the final race instructions and found out I have to get everything Wednesday and my flight was scheduled to arrive after the expo closed so I had to switch flights and pay an extra $200 for the new flight in fees. It's cool, it worked out and I will have more time Wednesday to check out the expo and go to the grocery store after I check into my hotel. I just really didn't need that freak out on top of already freaking out about the races.
I'm trying to decide if while I'm down there I should go to one of the parks to kill some time, but the tickets are like $100! Geez, Disney, I already paid an arm and a leg for the race registration, don't you think you could give me a pass with the registration???? Come on, just once it would be nice. How do I decide which park to go to? Do I go traditional and do Magic Kingdom or go for new stuff and go to Universal? Or do I save my money and just chill by the pool? Things to decide in the next few days.....but first I need to do a little work, it will be a good distraction so I can stop freaking out.
