10K Day!!

Today we needed to be at the race start at 5:30am. Since we were all going to do this race together (that means they others said they would stay with me no matter how slow I went), we decided to take the car and park it, since the start and finish are basically at the same place.

We all stayed together and got some lovely official race photos, and then snagged a brunch reservation at Akershus in Epcot. So after the race, we walked to the front of Epcot (the start/finish of the 10K is in the Epcot parking lot) and ate breakfast.

Once we were done with that, we ambled back to the car, returned to the room and showered/cleaned up/changed clothes/napped until we decided to go to the movies ("Spotlight" - a really good movie). Afterwards, we stopped by Yacht Club for Katie to pick up some stuff, ordered a pizza to pick up, and stopped by Redbox to get "The Intern" for watching (we needed something light after "Spotlight").

Once all that was done, it was time to turn in for the night. Tomorrow is another early day!

Before the race. It was chilly, hence the mylar blankies.
And now you see the finished Fairy Godmother cape!
It was also dark - oh yeah, it was 5am ...

Post race with our medals in front of Spaceship Earth.
Epcot wasn't officially opened yet, but since we had breakfast reservations,
we could waltz right in!

The ladies with Ariel, the princess featured this year for the races.
By this time, we were full and ready for our nap.

I'm getting the biggest copy available.
We clearly take these races super-seriously ...
Thankful today for: fun times on the 10K course; breakfast with the princesses at Akershus; movies and dinner with the ladies
