We proudly pinned the bibs on our backs.
I really enjoyed the Disney race. Yes there were some nontraditional terrains and slanted roadways but overall, it was a nice race course.
Volunteers offered Powerade and water at nearly every mile. They even had two different chocolate stops!
A girl doesn't pass up chocolate!! EVER!
My friend Denise and I ran the entire race together. I'm thankful I had someone to run my first marathon with. I didn't hit any walls during our 18 weeks of marathon training. In the actual marathon, I was over it by mile 17. I was hot, tired, the bottom of my feet hurt, and I was ready to be done! Fortunately, I got over that quickly and moved on because I still had 9 miles left to run.
We didn't stop for many character pictures but I couldn't pass up Mike Wazowski.
Mike Wazowski! Mike Wazowski!
Almost to the finish! My husband and boys were there to cheer us on, along with our friends Faith and Tanya.
I couldn't have done this without the support of my husband!
Our Minnie Mouse running outfits and Disney Marathon medals. I love the runningskirts.com skirt that I wore for the marathon (more on that later).
The after party with my wonderful marathon training group! We did it girls!!
