|Jon's mom snapped this right before we took off. We're carrying the bags Disney so brilliantly allowed us to check. They took the bags from the race start to the finish line so people could clean up a little bit before the after party.|
|Excited and nervous at the pre-race party|
|The flat, FUN course: through three of the four parks. Wasn't bored once and loved it. Didn't even take the earbuds.|
|Characters and other interesting distractions were strategically placed at about every mile. Ah, the conundrum: sacrifice pace by waiting in a short line for a character photo or two? For me? YES. Jon, not so much.|
|No way was I passing up a photo op with this guy.|
|Hollywood Studios lights. Only a few miles left at this beautiful point!|
|Jon was amazing.|
|Jon had the presence of mind to stop for a finisher photo as soon as he crossed the line. |
I missed this opportunity as I stumbled to the food and drink table instead.
|Jon's stats. He finished in an amazing 2:12.|
|Did it! Here I am crossing the finish line. I smiled during the entire last mile.|
|My stats. I finished in 2:47 with the three photo stops.|
|I am crossing the line here on the far left under Mickey's foot.|
|This is our only post-race photo, taken as soon as I finished, |
met up with Jon at the after party, and changed into dry clothes.
We "partied" in Epcot to the best of our tuckered-out ability 'til 4 am.
