It was an early Disney morning! Which means it was a little chilly but not cold.
We had to be on the bus “no later than 5:30 am” so I thought we’d be early and get on the bus by 4:30. Um. Yeah. Apparently buses didn’t start running until 5! Which explained the 4 buses waiting and no runners!
Ended up being among the very first to get to the starting area in the Animal Kingdom parking lot. Which is GREAT if, like me, you wanted to get the big picture op in! (Note – after I took the picture below and put it on Instagram, a girl came up to me to say she just saw my picture on Instagram!! Whoa!!)
After a bit of Disney Dance Party and some stretching, we checked bags and headed to the corrals. Since the sun was up, there were no fireworks at the start but that doesn’t diminish the excitement as Mickey and Minnie send the runners off on their adventure.
And it was an adventure for sure!! Though I didn’t make any picture stops, that doesn’t mean there were no pictures.
It was slow going for me because of some lingering pain in my glute but as long as I kept going things were all good!!
We finished up and headed directly to the bus – there was a big day of pool-time ahead and we needed to get right on that!! Resting up for tonight’s Wine and Dine Half Marathon!!
