In less than one week, I will have that bib in my hands. I will have my official princess half shirt, and hopefully my new Dooney and Bourke wristlet. My goody bag will be spread out on my bed at Bay Lake Tower. My race outfit will be hanging in the closet. I will be looking out my window at Cinderella Castle. Yes ladies, we have entered the single digit countdown until the Disney Princess Half Marathon.
It seems like forever since I started my training. Actually, it’s been over a year. After all that time and all that training and I am a week out from one of the biggest goals I have ever set for myself. Now that we are just one week out, you would think I would be nothing but a bag of nerves, right. That I would be a crazy, nervous mess? Yea, so did I. Well, none of that is true. I am happy to report that I feel a strange calm. I am not calm about anything! I feel like I have put the time in, that I am as ready as I am going to be. That I am ready! There is nothing to do now but pack my bags and head to Walt Disney World.
I have three runs left before we go. I plan to do around five miles on Sunday, but that could prove difficult with an impending snow storm destine to hit. Hopefully I will get my run in before the bad weather hits. Then I have my 30 minute runs on Tuesday and Thursday. That’s it! Walt Disney Princess Half Marathon, here we come!
How do you feel in this weekend before the race? Are you nervous, confident, calm, ready?
A dream is a wish...
