Non-crafty post - Disney half marathon weekend

Hello friends,
I hope everyone's been doing well since I last posted.  This post isn't really craft related but I will definitely scrapbook this memorable moment.  This past weekend I went to Disney to participate in Disney's Princess half marathon.  My goal for last year (2010) was to run a half marathon.  I did it October 2010.  It was an amazing feeling of accomplishment. It came and went and here I am finishing my 2nd one.  My legs are still in pain but the rest of me feels great.  I felt like a princess getting my medal.  My kids are convinced that I came in 2nd place and my friend Lili was in first.
I could not have done this without my friends/running partners.  Also my supportive hubby who slept on the couch every Friday night because I would drag my kids to bed with me (they fall asleep quick when they sleep with mommy) so that I could wake up at 5am on Saturdays.  All that training was well worth it.  I had a blast!

Here are a couple of pics from my weekend.
