Headed back to the room to shower and pack and get ready in a jif. Literally it was less than 20 minutes total!
We checked out of the room and walked the 10 minutes to the Disneyland hotel to get to goofys kitchen. The lobby was insane! It made us glad that we arrived at 1020 for a 1030 reservation. So many people everywhere and it took is about 5 min to check in and pay. But they were calling people quickly. After about a 25 minute wait, devin went to acquire how much longer and we were seated right after that.
We got our table and ran to get food. I wasn't that hungry walking over but whole waiting I got ravenous and went to bar and loaded up my plate and are a slice of Mac n cheese piZa immediately. I piled my plate and went back to the table where everyone made fun of me.
We saw a good amount of characters:
Goofy at the front
Alice who we told it was our unbirthday
Jasmine who said she takes the magic carpet to the finish line of half marathons
Baloo who loved Ewok
dale who is my moms favorite
We saw all of the characters in under an hour. A good pace and we were able to get more food.
My second plate was fruit and dessert.
After lunch we walked to the car in Mickey n friends and back to the hotel to gather my stuff and off back to LA we went.
I felt fine but my stomach hurt-little did I know what was in store. I got home and my stomach seriously looked like I was 3-5 months pregnant. It could only mean one thing: GLUTEN STRIKES AGAIN.
I dealt with feeling bad for the next few hours however I don't regret it because the food was delicious!!
I did laundry, unpacked and started packing for Dallas. I rolled and put compression socks on and laid on the couch doing nothing. I was hoping to fall asleep but it didn't happen. I had dinner of stuffed bell pepper and watched football.
Ralph and I went to the airport to get his housemate who was starving from LAX so we stopped at mcdonalds on the way home. I got a BBQ ranch burger (only ate 1/2 of a bun because it was going to be a mess to eat without it) and a spicy chicken sandwich (I okay ate the chicken and lettuce) and felt full but not overly. After that I passed out in Ralph's lap at 1030. I went from feeling fine to just passing out!
Overall my post race recovery went well! I think I would limit the gluten next time (yes we plan on doing goofys kitchen after dumbo!) but overall my race went well so my recovery went well.
On to the next one:
