This Fridays theme is Race Memories!
With the beginning of Dumbo Double Dare coming up in just 3 weeks from tomorrow, I will recap pics from that race!
Last year, the 5k and the 10k on the same day but less than an hour apart. Thank goodness they changed that because it was a logistical nightmare. We were already in a heat wave and the 10k started late. The theme was Alice in Wonderland so I dressed as the Chesire Cat.
This race was special as it was the first time I had ever run a race by myself! I really enjoyed it and paced myself very slow so I could conserve energy for the half the next day.
The finishing time was around 1:32:55 (about 15 min miles) I was able to slow down about 2 minutes/mile than my fast race pace (at the time was around 12 min miles...can't believe I'm closer to 10:30 now in a span of a year!).
I also stopped for photos as long as the lines weren't too long and got some cute shots.
Honestly, this Is my favorite Disney race I have ever run. It starts out running towards the convention center so it spreads out and then spends the rest of the time in the parks and downtown disney (about 4 miles).
The Half was on Sunday and insanely hot. I got to run this one with my cousin Mallory and it was a bit too hot to really enjoy. My costume was mike from monsters university.
Most of the characters lines were long and the sun was unbearable.
My favorite part was Angels stadium but my second favorite part was the finish line. I was ready to done with the heat!
I feel I am better prepared for Dumbo and my costumes are also better. I am just hoping for good weather aka cooler and a bit of an overcast!
What is your next race?
