I’ve completed my training (save for a few low-mile runs this week), printed off my information sheets and schedules, chosen outfits for all of the kids to wear while I’m gone, applied my purple Jamberry nail wraps, gathered my running necessities.

I’ve printed off my list of Who I’m Running For, and will apply it to my Team In Training jersey tomorrow.


I’ve asked for advice on doing Disney World alone, as an adult, and seriously contemplated how to handle when the kids find out where I went without them (I’m thinking there will be super cool souvenirs and a family trip in the fall involved).

I’ve raised $5,032 (thanks to ALL of you awesome, gigantic-hearted people).

I’m so, so very nervous to run another half marathon (with updates on the race going to my Facebook page, no less), but I am DETERMINED to have a great time. Because when else will I be able to pass Goofy or Dopey or a princess or who-knows-who-else on the course, and do it to help people (including one very special to me)?

I’ve trained for over four months, and I’m still slow as a snail, but DAMMIT, I’m going to Disney World!

Robin at Farewell, Stranger and I want to see your funny, your yummy, your heartfelt, your favorite phone photos of the week. All you need is a blog post containing at least one photo from any phone camera. Link up below!
