Hakuna Matata...Walt Disney World Half Marathon

It means no worries for the rest of your days...
Day One of the Goofy Challenge is D.O.N.E.
Our day started at 2:30 am.
This is after we got ready and around. It's not even 3:00 am!
We started in the back of the pack with our friends and our Honored Patient, Leesa and Craig. We had a day of weaving in and out of walkers. It was a little crazy and insane but we still had a good time with a lot of laughs.

We did take plenty of our own breaks snapping pictures with several characters. We bought a disposable camera, but are not able to process it, so we'll post pictures when we return home.

We strolled in right under 3 hours. We were sure to take it nice and easy and had a great time.
Here is our 1st medal. Donald is honkin' big!

Once we returned to the hotel, we took a dip in the cool pool to ease the inflammation of the day's run. After that, we headed for a margarita. The salt on it was so yummy and just what we needed to replace some electrolytes.

Now it's time to relax. Eat some dinner. And an early night to bed again for another 2:30 am wake up call. Only 26.2 to go!
