well, one race down and one to go. i can’t believe i’m already half way (well i guess technically a third of the way) through the dark side challenge. and after today’s race, it makes me so excited for my first half marathon tomorrow.
now the strategy for the race this morning was to go nice and easy. it was really just a warm up run for tomorrow. and mission accomplished. thankfully i never got ahead of myself and kept with my pace. i’d have to say that my favorite part of the course was running through epcot. they had all of the lights lit up around the pavilions like they normally do for illuminations. what a sight for 6:00 in the morning. they also did a fantastic job of incorporating star wars into the little moments during the race, including vader’s iconic breathing at one point.
and i mean, how can you beat that awesome medal?!
two more tomorrow, bling bling
stay tuned for some more updates from the weekend
