This year, though, my mom and sister are coming along for a little family vacay over the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend. I figured they could join in on the fun on Saturday and all three of us could do the 5K and then I would do the Half on Sunday.

They haven't posted the 5K course, yet, so I'm excited to see if we run through Cars Land. The half marathon course looks the same as last year, although, I'm assuming the California Adventure portion will be a little different. The course map is a little vague.

I can not wait to go. It seems like every year that I am older, I love Disney parks more and more. I get a lot of crap for how often I wind up at Disneyland or Walt Disney World. I used to only go to Disneyland once a year at the MOST, sometimes less than that. But now that I've discovered how awesome their runs are, I plan on doing at least 1 or 2 of them a year for the next few years to come. I still haven't done Wine & Dine, but it seems like we're adding that to the calendar for 2013. Woot!
With all of this excitement, I should be training harder than ever. Last night I drove to the gym and had actually pulled into the parking lot when I got a text saying that we were having happy hour at the barn. Of course, I immediately headed to the barn! We now have a tent with misters in our arena for drinking. Well, it's actually so that my trainer can have shade in the brutal sun all summer, but whatevs.

And for the record: this is the best invention ever. 100 calorie packets of gaucamole. Store bought guac is always a gamble, but this stuff is really good.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend!
