WDW Half Marathon Recap
WDW Marathon Recap
Of course, before we could do any running, we had to go to the ESPN Sports Complex for the expo.
|Oh yes, Goofy medal, you will be mine...|
I still bought a Champion Goofy jacket (never mind that I have 2 others just like it from the Disneyland Half Marathons in 2011 and 2012). They are really plain, though. I think I might get some lettering added to the back that says 39.3 miles or something. I also bought a retro looking Mickey Marathon hoodie. I just didn't like the Goofy sweatshirt.
Anyway, we picked up our numbers after purchasing our swag.
Then we headed over to the expo. It was a mad house. I can only spend so much time at an expo. The crowds eventually get to me and I can't take anymore.
I stopped by the Run Disney booth to register for the Dumbo Double Dare. They were having all sorts of issues with their computers and so I signed up on a good old fashioned paper form. I really hate doing that. When I signed up for Goofy and the San Diego RnR expo, my name and email were both spelled incorrectly and it was a hassle to change it. Plus, as of right this moment, my card has not been charged, so that makes me a little nervous (although, I sort of remember it taking a few weeks for Goofy, too).
When we were done with shopping (I spent waaaaaay too much money), we stopped by the HP booth on our way out to get a picture.
After the expo on Thursday night, we headed to Downtown Disney and ate dinner at Raglan Road Irish Pub. I loved, loved, loved this restaurant/pub. The music and Irish dancing was fun and entertaining, but the food was ah-maaaay-zing. I had Shepard's Pie. Try it, you'll thank me.
We also had a few glasses of wine since there was no way I was drinking after that until Goofy was over. And, as it turns, I hardly drank after it was over since my body just didn't seem to want alcohol. Weird, right? I mean, c'mon!
More recapping to come, but now I'm off to go make posters for Ari to cheer her on tomorrow at the P.F. Chang's Rock 'n' Roll Arizona. Good luck, Ari!
