I am not sure I have explained why I am coronation Anna this time around. I love Frozen, as we know, and Anna is my favorite mainly because I act a lot like her (or maybe she acts a lot like me...). Anyways, I let my little sisters pick out my costumes and I was originally going to be Elsa. Well when I was home for Christmas break, I woke up and my sister Ashley said-your hair looks just like Anna on coronation day, and well it did! Since then, my sisters have been making fun of my Anna hair, even when it is all done nice.
The night before I laid everything out and when I get back after an awesome dinner at Liberty Tree Tavern, walked through my routine for the morning. I got into bed around 830 or so and was set to get up at 4:15.
I slept pretty well and was up and ready to go, hair included (you can't tell, but I braided the top of my hair!). Got ready and headed to the monorail and was excited to finally get to take the monorail to a race! We got on the monorail at 5 and to TTC at 515 and saw it had been 25 minutes since the last one!! We had to wait almost 10 min for it to come and it took awhile from there and about 10 min to walk to the monorail station. We got to the pre race place at 540. I met up with Joanne and then heading to my corral right after. At 6 we started the walk from corral A to the starting line.
I kept my throwaway clothes on until the wheelchair start. The playing of Frozen music all the time made me incredibly happy and I even decided to listen to just Frozen music during the run.
I was worried I would be cold but it was fine before and great when we started. Before I knew it, it was our turn to start. Not going to lie, I teared up a bit while starting: they played my favorite Frozen music (the part at the end when Elsa fixes the kingdom), I was running directly under the fireworks for the start and just the knowledge I was doing Princess again (running all of the races at that!) and so soon after dopey. I was also excited to try out my new interval that Jeff suggested at the Expo!
This was the same course as the WDW 5k so I knew what to expect: short tour through the parking lot, down the road we walk to for the half corrals, backstage, around world showcase and through Epcot to the finish.
the excitement of race definitely got to me and I started off fast. Like first running segment in under 9:00 mile pace. The cold felt good and I felt good. I ended up being pretty speedy through the parking lot and got to Minnie Mouse in record time:7 minutes. If I had not stopped, that would have put me on pace for a 10 min mile which is unheard of in a Disney race for me. The line was short so of course I waited.
Mickey was out in America so I stopped for him and kept going around the world showcase.
Went over towards the imagination pavilion and I stopped for a potty break so I wouldn't have to stop before getting on the bus. Over to the Land, the Seas, and back to spaceship earth. We kept going to the finish line and then I was done!
When is the last time you ran a 5k? Have you ever run a Disney 5k? What did you think of the legit frozen 5k?
