We’re close enough to our trip that I can count down in days instead of months. And to make things even more exciting, our MagicBands came in the mail!
Aside from training, I’m actually not ready for this trip at all. Usually I have packing lists made at this point (#typeA), but I haven’t started. We also don’t even have a special outfit yet for the race itself!
Poor Kevin. The guy had no idea I signed him up for the PRINCESS half marathon. Oops. My aunt and I aren’t really into wearing a tutu (and obviously neither is Kevin), but we know everyone dresses up for these races so we wanted to at least have shirts made. Here’s what I’m hoping to get made this week:
^I’m well aware that this says 31.1. No, I am not running 31 miles. Typo! Obviously when I order the shirts, it will have the correct mileage. LOL
THIS IS SO TRUE. I told Kevin a long long long time ago, when he first brought up the idea of running a half marathon, that the only way in hell I’d run 13.1 miles is if it was through Magic Kingdom (little did I know, there was actually a race that did that).
The only other thing I have ready for this race is my playlist! Music is the only way that I make it through these long runs. I recently did an overhaul on my Spotify playlist and I am so obsessed.

Kevin refuses to let me check the weather until a few days before (because we all know it’s not accurate), but I just want to look and see it say 80 degrees and sunny. Ha ha! I’m ready for shorts, flip flops and simply being in Florida! Disney World, here we come (in 16 days)!
