Take Aways from the Tower of Terror 10 Miler:
– I can do anything I want, no matter how scared I might be.
– Disney races are fun and magical, even if you don’t finish.
– There will always be someone faster than me. But there will always be someone slower too.
– Walking is Okay.
– Having someone there with you makes the pain and discomfort much more tolerable.
– Training is important and a fundamental necessity for success.
– Alex is the best person to come into my life. I couldn’t have done it without him.
– Getting pulled off at mile 7 was devastating, humbling, and motivating.
– Races aren’t about winning it’s about pushing myself to new limits.

– Well, Alex’s dad was so inspired by us that he has registered for the Family 5k at Disney on Marathon weekend in January. Alex’s younger brother also registered and they are going to start the C25K!
– That means that Alex and I will be registering too! So the races continue!
– Which also means I will start the C25K over again. Back to basics. This will also be more pleasant when Fall finally arrives in Florida. Summers are too brutal.
– Since we were pulled off the course at Mile 7, Alex and I have decided that we will run it again next year. Hopefully, with a season of cooler temperature ahead of us we can lay a very solid running foundation to carry us into the dog days of summer.
– Crossfit. I want to give it a go by the end of the year.
– I am done with Week One of Whole 30 / October Unprocessed and going head strong into Week Two. (Week One review to come.)
And I had a few questions about the shirts Alex I are wearing in this picture:
We bought custom iron-ons from TwobyTutuCreations! We loved them and got tons of compliments throughout the day and especially at the expo.
