Marathon Weekend, Ready!

The week has finally arrived with all it’s glory and anticipation!

5k

Alex and I are running in the 5k and we are excited. More so, we are excited to cheer on all the half marathon and marathon, and Goofy (event for people running both half and full – Dopey is the event for people running 5k, half, and full) runners! From the expo, races, meet and greets, people, and stories I am sure this weekend will be one of never-ending inspiration and fun.

I’ve got to be honest with you guys. My training has been very lax for the last month. I didn’t  want to stress myself out or risk any old injuries flaring up. Running just 3 days a week. 1.5-2.5 miles per run. 3 minute jog / 1 minute walk. My last run before the race was yesterday and I went just over a mile using intervals of 2 jog / 1 walk.

I feel ready and if I feel good on Friday morning then maybe I can use this to get back in the game. The last thing I want is for last years bad habits and injuries to overshadow this year.

FUN FACTS!:

— My cousin has been a runner all her life (she is now in her 40’s) and is running her first full this weekend! I am so excited to see her and cheer her on!

— Friday (5k day) is also Alex and I’s 18 month anniversary! Time flies when you’re having fun (running)!

— I will be sharing on the action of Marathon Weekend. You can follow me on Twitter (@Sabrina_Alex), Instagram (Sabrina_Alex), or on Yelp. We have reservations at some fun Disney restaurants so consider yourself forewarned about updates with delicious food!

— And NO, my user names are not joint account for Alex and myself. My middle name is Alexandra and I had that user name before we met. Thanks!

— It’s going to be a warm and sunny weekend! Hydration will be essential. marathon weekend weather

    It was a year ago today that I ran my first full at Disney. What an experience! I wish I could be there again. I attended all three races and cheered my friends running the 5K and half marathon. Such a fun time. I hope your race goes really well. Have a great weekend!! Good luck to your cousin.

      Ya know, most the time I don’t think about pictures until it’s too late. I always miss the good shots. And I never think about it when eating, which is why I am not much of a food blogger. 😦

    I am so excited for Disney Marathon weekend!!! I’m usually a participant in the half (for the last 5 years), but I’m taking this year off (for obvious reasons – I’m due with my first baby next Thursday, so it’s probably not a good plan for me to participate – ha). However, I am weirdly excited about reading anything and everything I can about this upcoming weekend since I won’t be there. Can’t wait to hear how the 5K is! Keep us posted!! 🙂

      I am hoping this race will be my bounce back and then I can start thinking about the half next year!
      And I get weirdly excited when reading other people’s race stories too. In the mean time, I wish you a very healthy delivery! What a joyous reason to miss out this year.
