Disney - Goofy's Challenge! (PICS)

On the way to our hotel! EXCITED for Disney!!!!

Miss Bethany and her two friends after the half-marathon yesterday! Lindsey's FIRST half, and a huuuuge PR for Cindy. What a great job they did! So proud for them! Miss Bethany did an easy 1:50, and I STUPIDLY ran 2:00. MUCH too fast, considering I had to run a marathon today.

After suffering through the marathon today in 4:32:29, I am proudly wearing my Goofy hat :) It was brutal. The effects of yesterday's half marathon caught up to me. I've never hit the wall at MILE 2 before, until today. Boy, was I sore the whole day today. Good 50 miler training :) Luckily, I had Miss Bethany to pull me through. She amazingly kept me running strong enough to have a respectable finish! So proud, and so lucky to have her. I just wish I had HALF of her endurance. She is amazing!

You two are amazing!!! This race is aptly named--but looks like a blast...when it's over!

You have to rock the hat at least every other day, right?!

I love that you two support each other through the tough times. CONGRATS!!! to both of you..

Yes Miss Bethany does seem to be a little hummingbird, I am hoping some of that energy and endurance will rub off on me before Boston when I stay at casa-de-Beth/Ryan..

Thank you for stopping by my blog and the kind words. And congrats on a great weekend. 1/2 + whole = amazing! I can't imagine running out of gas at Mile 2 and pushing the rest of the way. Great job!
