I can choose to feel one of two ways about this:
I do believe I will choose the latter. In my previous Disney races, I was so stressed and while they were fun, I over-thought everything - from my pace to costuming. I didn't appreciate the experience enough. This time, I am going to go into this race feeling excited, grateful, and relaxed!
Plus, I get to run through this:
I'm actually getting pretty excited! It won't be totally easy, but I don't have to make it harder than it needs to be. I have a last minute costume idea (if it works out, cool - if not, I have a Sparkle Skirt and top to wear) and I get a whole week at WDW after the race. How can I stress about that?!?
Lastly, I found this cute article online about 37 of the happiest things you see while running a race and it makes me remember the fun and wonderful parts of running. I am going to have a good time! I am going to forgive myself for not training harder and go get this done. When I get home, I am recommitting to many things that I need to move my life forward - including training my butt off for my 2014 races.
