I've barely run in the last 2 weeks and I know I'm going to pay for that on Saturday morning when I attempt our scheduled 15 miler. I've never run more than 13.1 miles and that's strictly when racing. I missed last week's run due to being at a horse show (Sadly, Bam stayed home, but I went anyway.)
I've just been...out of it.
It just seems like the last year and a half have been filled with loss and other sad things. I won't go on and on about my tale of woe, but I'm ready for some happiness, that's for sure. So I suppose a trip to Disneyland will help distract me from other things. Plus, moping at the barn is not doing me any good. (Although, the amount of wine we seem to consume up there really does help!)

How about a trip down memory lane? Here's a picture of my sister, Melissa, and me at Disney World in 1995. Do you remember when characters still roamed the parks without designated meet and greet lines?

The 2010 Disneyland Half Marathon was my very first race. I'm so glad I picked a Disney race for my first half marathon because I probably would not have done so many otherwise.
This year, I convinced my mom and sister to do the 5K on Saturday and I'm going to do this half on Sunday. I was really hoping for a PR, but since I've hardly run in the last 2 weeks, that may no longer be in the cards. I need to drag my sorry ass back out there!

I'm really looking forward to seeing the new Cars Land. The 5K is Cars Land themed, so I'm assuming a lot of the course runs through there. Different parts of CA Adventure have been under construction for the last couple of years, so the course through the parks was different in 2010 and 2011. Of course, it's really hard to tell from the map.
The map for the 5k is a lot more detailed. I've never done a Disney 5K, so I'm excited that this seems to be almost entirely withing the parks. Very cool.
We're also making a family vacation out of the trip with my mom, my sister and my brother and law. Luckily, my mom likes to travel in style, so instead of staying at a cheap place down the street, we're staying at the Grand Californian. Woot!
I know we'll have a good time. I mean, how can one not have a good time at Disneyland?
