The Disney half marathon is approaching...

I leave for Disneyland on Wednesday, and I am so excited. I am heading there with my half brother and half sister. I didn't really grow up with them, so this is a neat opportunity for us to get to know each other and have fun at the happiest place on earth. On the Sunday, we'll be running the Disneyland Half Marathon. I am especially excited for this race. It should be fun. I only hope I can run/walk fast enough to finish in the allotted time.

Today, I ran 7km, and it went well. If I keep a similar pace to today, then I will easily make it. I can't go too fast though, because I don't want my heart rate climbing too high and I don't want to get overheated.

I tried buying some maternity exercise clothes today, but the store I went to only had pants and long sleeve yoga type stuff. I wanted shorts and a tank top of sorts. I did find a cool Bella Belt thing though. It's basically a piece of spandex that goes around your belly. It offers a bit of support and keeps your belly from being exposed, so in the end, it might work perfectly with the clothes I already have.

Now if only I could find the time for a haircut!!

Enjoy the trip and definitely enjoy the race - take lots of pics!!

You know I'm totally jealous and wish I was also running the DL half so you'd better remember every detail so that you can come and tell me and I can live it all through you.

As for the maternity running stuff, seriously, try the Fit Momma skirt. It's totally changed my attitude to running and it's so comfortable, I may just have to buy some more for after the birth :)
