Hello from Anaheim!!!
The inaugural Tinker Bell Half Marathon weekend at DisneyLand is officially underway!
The expo is open, the runners are arriving, and the pixie dust is ready to fly…really!
I arrived in Orange County yesterday afternoon after a relatively easy flying experience. My body and my mind keep getting confused as I attempt to stay on an East Coast sleeping and eating schedule.
My mom got to travel with me from Virginia so she is enjoying lots of Disney fun…as I work…
My first order of business was a fitting for my costume for the Neverland Family Fun Run 5k, which is Friday night. I don’t want to spoil anything but I’ll just say that it’s real sparkly and real cute! Pictures to come tomorrow!
After my fitting it was 3pm and I was confused. I was hungry…it was dinner time…..but it was also 3pm. I nibbled on some fruit from a platter that was delivered to my room and then we decided to head over the Downtown Disney in search of food.
|I may need one of these during my trip. How cute!|
It took us a while to find healthy, fresh food, as it was 3pm and a random time where several restaurants were closed. We settled on UVA – a tapas style outdoor bar. The weather was spectacular! Warm and sunny!
My Mom and I shared 3 small plates. A Mediterranean dip trio, a grilled chicken cobb salad, and a butternut squash flatbread.
Then it was 630pm and I went to bed! It was awesome! I actually got 8 hours of sleep before our 4am rehearsal.
Safety vests at night!
After rehearsal we had a entertainment meeting at Denny’s. I had their Fit Slam. It was pretty good. I added pico de gallo to my eggs and had a big cup of coffee. I avoided taking a picture of my breakfast during the meeting. But just picture egg whites and fruit...that's what it looked like.
Now I’m going to get in a strength training workout before heading over to the health and fitness expo!
Do you visit the Expo at races? What vendors do you like to see?
Love and wings,
Carissa & Kyle
