This started out as the “wish I could, but the timing won’t work” race. And then quickly became the “sold out so I don’t have to worry about it” race. At which point, I admit, I moped a little. Or a lot, even though I knew deep down inside it was probably best if I did not do it. But then, lo and behold, on Black Friday Eve, it turned into the “you have a second chance to register” race and I didn’t let the opportunity pass me by! Without too much analyzing, I signed up, figuring I could sort out the consequences later.
Cue later. I am not as trained as I would like to be (nor did I expect to be given the time of year). I am flying out super early Saturday morning and flying back Sunday night, no time for dilly-dallying.
But I am doing the Tinker Bell Half. With a smile on my face. Or at least a smile on my face at the beginning and the end, and wherever the photographers are. In between those times, you might find me with a grimace. When I say I truly don’t care about my time, I honestly mean it this time. I do not expect to come in under 3 hours (although that would be awesome!) but I do expect to finish and have fun along the way.
I’m sure you are all waiting on bated breath to know what my costume will be! Since I signed up so late, I was originally thinking I would fall back on Tink green and be done. But then I saw Krissy’s open invite to be a part of #TeamSugarRush and I was sold! While my costume doesn’t line up completely with one of the racers on Sugar Rush (from the game in Wreck-it Ralph) it is definitely inspired by one of the characters. Not to totally give away my outfit, but there will be pink involved! Unless of course I can’t make up my mind and decide to change at the last-minute, which has so happened before.
Now back to packing and finalizing my playlist. See you in Neverland!!
