Getting Ready

Its 4:00a and we are getting ready to go to the race. I am nervous and I have butterflies in the tummy. No rain, its nice out.
My Dad came too. That's why I am nervous. I will update

Ok it is now 6a and FJ is going to be handing out medals to the runners. He has a cool shirt and a chief's hat!! We are lining up at the 13 min. Group.
Riding the bus from epcot we got to see some of the arches for the holiday bridge!
They are playing 80's music.
Taking lots of pics.
Can you tell I am super excited?!
I got emotional thinking of what is to come. All of us here in line up!
Iwe are wearing our AATM shirts.
Ok going to hit the potty again.
See all of you at the finish line!

We finished! 1:29:22.
Crowded for a while. About mile 4 or 5 my left calf muscle became real tight. I had to slow down. It was humid after the sun came up and I was having a hard time with my breathing.
The first runner across the line did it in 35 mintues! Holy cats! FJ is still volunteering, he ended up punching holes in the arm bands! He is doing great!
Well the net big race is the Half! I can't believe it!

I know I need to do more long distance running, and hills and incline. The road ramps are tough.

When ran into a runner who saw our shirts and said they low the show!
