Path To Princess Half: Two Months!!!

Really?  Two months?!  All of my obsessing is getting so so much closer.  So technically, I just leave in two months, the actual half is two months from Monday.  Still counts, right?

So what do I have left to do?
I still need a tank. I still need the puffy sleeves.  I still need to order my shorts for under my tutu. I'm actually slightly freaking out about the little details.  I really would like to try a run with the whole costume put together prior to the half.

What am I not freaking out about?  Oddly enough, the race itself. Even though I've only run a little over ten miles so far, I know that I can tack on a 5k and still survive intact.  My confidence level has increased so much in the last few months it's amazing.  I'm not as worried about actually finishing it as I am about whether I want to set a time goal, or whether I just want to have fun.  I'm guessing I'll find a happy medium in there.

I have now cancelled all of my ADR's that I had booked under the assumption that it would be a family trip.  Now, we only have one reservation and are talking about spa treatments and flying by the seat of our pants.  Whereas in the past it was go, go, go, schedule, schedule, schedule. This could be the most relaxing Disney trip yet.  Minus the 13.1 miles I will be running but oddly enough that is relaxing for me too.

Magical Express is booked...Once I get our luggage tags from them it is going to be totally real.  Right now I think I am in denial that I am actually going to do this.  It doesn't seem real yet.


My checklist is getting smaller and smaller. I'm slightly terrified and super excited in alternate turns.  Mostly excited though.  I can not wait!
