Another 5k under my belt

The Disney Family Fiesta 5k was held today, Jan 6, 2012. This was my 5th Disney 5k, woohoo! 

If you've been paying attention to my weekly baby updates over on my facebook profile, you already know that means that I was crazy enough to do this 5k at 26 weeks 5 days pregnant!  


Not too big of a feat since I walked the whole time however I have a cold, plus it was only 47 degrees out. I barely even made it up to power walking speed, and didn't run a single step (my throat, cold, cough and voice all thank me). Add that to be pregnant it was a pretty big deal.  It made for my longest 5k so far. Which I do find funny because I was never last and I never saw the slagin' wagons, I even stood in line for 5 minutes so I could get my picture with Snow White, the Prince and Dopey, but yet was still the worst time out of all of them.  I definitely think that had I not been sick I would have finished much better than I did, but I definitely didn't want to over do anything, especially since this was my first 5k without any of my buddies with me, I was solo. I came home and had a 2.5 hour nap afterwards, and usually we'd be running around the parks afterwards.  Definitely could not have done that today!  Oh well, the point is that I finished and I'm not dead and I had fun doing it. This one was my 5th with Disney, and BabyD's 2nd with Disney, and if we're still feeling good we're going for 6th/3rd next month ( 6 weeks before I'm due), and then I'm pretty sure I'm done with them for a little while!

Definitely crazy lol but thank you! You should, they are soooooo much fun! They are much less pressure than a half or a full marathon, but they have characters and it's just one park instead of half or all of them. The princess 5k is at the end of next month, and it's really just a walk around Epcot - http://espnwwos.disney.go.com/events/rundisney/princess-half-marathon/index?page=disney-royal-family-5k You can do it! :)
