Disney Princess Half Marathon Recap ~ Part Four

13 Mar

As soon as I finished the race and found my mom with my “after the race” bag, I grabbed my Three Musketeers bar (it’s my treat, ok?) and we headed over to the buses to go back to the resort. I found Brandy back in the room, and thankfully, she was feeling much better. My mom, on other hand, was feeling a little sore from running all around Disney World at the butt crack of dawn to cheer me on. Since we didn’t get to have a Bahama Breeze dinner the night before, Brandy and I headed there for lunch. I got the caesar salad and quesadilla lunch combo. Delicious! I wore my medal to lunch and got a few comments from the staff there. After lunch, Brandy and I headed to Menchie’s. I can’t get enough of that place!

Brandy left that afternoon, and my mom and I headed over to the pool for some relaxation. I only spent a few minutes in the hot tub before I crawled out and fell asleep for about an hour in my chair. My hips were still stiff, and my quads were so sore I had trouble walking down any kind of stairs or ramp.

Around 6, my mom and I headed over to Magic Kingdom for dinner and to just walk around to enjoy it with no set plans. Unfortunately, all of the table-service restaurants were full for the night, so we ended up at a quick-service place called Columbia Harbor House near the Haunted Mansion. I had the tuna sandwich and clam chowder… I’ve decided to go pescatarian for a bit instead of full-on vegetarian, by the way. After dinner, we enjoyed a ride on the Haunted Mansion and the Wishes fireworks! What a perfect ending to this day?! “A dream is a wish your heart makes” was the theme of the day for me, obviously.

This day will forever be placed in my top ten of most perfect days!

    My first HM ranks in my top 10, too. I surprised my mom with it by getting her to my finish line w/o her knowing why she was there. She was “surprised and proud”.

    Again congrats and another one next weekend….hardcore!
