Off to Neverland

So here we are, on the eve of my trip to Disneyland for the Tinker Bell Half.  I'm nervous and excited.  And really hoping I don't forget anything!  Especially my costume! :)
My goals for this race:
  1. As usual, to finish
  2. To finish in under 3 hours and 30 minutes
  3. To finish in under 3 hours and 15 minutes
  4. To finish in under 3 hours (shh, this is the secret goal)
My nervousness is probably outweighing anything right now.  I am not nearly as trained as I would like to be (but isn't the saying better to be undertrained than overtrained?).  I knew a race at the end of January would be tough due to a crazy work schedule.  But I didn't expect the crazy work schedule to get as crazy as it did.  I also couldn't have predicted the snowpocalypse.  And I haven't really done any hills in the last month either.  All that being said, I'm still excited.  I will finish.  If I have to walk most of it, I will finish (oh wait, that was what I did on my recent 12 miles!  After that debacle, what is 1.1 more measly miles?).

And how do I get to Neverland?  I'll just think of a wonderful thought (any happy little thought?), sprinkle some Pixie Dust, and off to Neverland I go!!  Second star to the right and straight on for 13.1 miles! :) 

P.S. Check out my guest post on Healthy Disney today!

We can't always be as well trained as we'd like to be -- that's where endurance comes in, and I know you have enough of that! Good luck and have fun!

You know, if you are going to race under-trained ... Disney is the perfect place for it!

Oh heck, Disney is the perfect place for anything!
