A few short weeks ago, on my mother’s birthday, we celebrated by waking up at 3 am so I could race in the Tinkerbell Half Marathon. This was my second half marathon, and my first race I would embark on all on my own. It was scary at first, but I recently received a new pair of headphones that looped around my ear and were waterproof, so I wass able to enjoy my music the entire race.
My goal time was to be under 3 hours.
I finished in 2 hours, 40 minutes and 20 seconds.
So I reached my goal, even though I knew I could have finished it faster (I ran into a bit of a snafu around mile 6 that lasted until mile 10).
But the race was a lot of fun. Here are some pictures (I am aware they are of poor quality, but alas I am a poor college student that can barely afford these races. So I have to resort to other means to get them).
Because Wendy is an under appreciated character in this race (I only came across ONE other girl dressed as her), I decided to run as Wendy. Fun Fact: Peter Pan and Wendy recognized me right away. Another fun fact: for some reason, there was only one person in line to take their picture with them! Everyone else was stopping for Darth Vader and Tinkerbell and the Pirates.
