And We're Off!

The day has come!  We're on our way to Disney World!  And our plans have already NOT gone according to plan. Do vacation plans ever go exactly how you imagined?  

Our plan was to split up our drive so that we would be well rested for our race Saturday night.  We were going to drive to Jacksonville (not Tampa like I told everyone) on Friday afternoon and stay the night with Jeremy's aunt.  We then planned on continuing our journey to Orlando on Saturday morning.  Well, it turns out Jeremy's aunt won't be in town this weekend. Of course.....

So now it's Friday morning and I have no idea what we are going to do.  We planned to look up hotels to stay in this past week but we just never got around to it.  We both don't feel like spending even more money for an extra night at a hotel.  Heck, we might just sleep in the car.  Spontaneous, huh?!  Yeah, we'll see.

Speaking of being unprepared...we are SO unprepared for this race!  You think we would have learned our lesson in August when we ran the 5k Rock N Run.  Ya know, the race where we didn't train for AT ALL and then both ended up puking at the finish line?  Yeah, that one.  Turns out, we didn't learn our lesson because we were just as bad training for this HALF MARATHON RELAY.  I only got up to 5.5 s-l-o-w miles (and that was 2 weeks ago...I've only run twice and not as far since then).  I think Jeremy has gotten up to 2 miles...maybe 3. So yeah, this race should be interesting.  Jeremy runs 5 miles and I run 8.  

At least our costumes will be cool.  Maybe it'll give me some motivation.  Here's a sneak peak:

I hope people actually dress up for this race.  I'm gonna feel silly if they don't.  Since our team name is 'Spaghetti, Set, Go!' we were going to dress up as the guy from 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs'.  Turns out that movie isn't by Disney so we had to turn down that option :(

We're going to miss Apollo on this trip.  This will be the longest we've ever been away from him!  Jeremy was nice enough to let me take him to my house last night so I could spend extra time with him.  I feel like he's a step kid going to different houses on the weekend.  Soon enough we'll all be under one roof and I can't wait!!  

As for now, Apollo and I are just waiting for Jeremy to get off work so we can hit the road!  Oh wait, I still need to pack! 

Disney World, we're coming for you!
