I love cutback weeks! I finished Week 6 of my Chicago Marathon training with two thirty minute runs and a 3 mile weekend run. This was my last week where the “long” run is only 3 miles. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted! Next weekend is 17 miles.. and the temps do not look friendly.
This past week, they released the medals for the Disneyland Half Marathon weekend! I wish I could say I’m super stoked about them… but I cannot.
Here is the link to the photos:
I was a huge fan of the big “D” half marathon medal, but I knew since it was an anniversary year, they were probably going to change it and they did. They made the medal a diamond shape for it’s 60th anniversary of Disneyland and a spinner (that is cool). But the medal looks pretty small to me… I hope it’s bigger in person!
The 10k medal is just ok… not a huge fan of villains, but I guess it’s ok.
I love the 5k medal!! I’m super glad I paid the extra money to run this race. The medal is super cute and even though it’s plastic, I love it!
I also love the Dumbo medal!! Some people were complaining about the red ribbon, but that’s not a huge concern in my book at all.
Also, I’ll be getting the Coast to Coast medal! I love this medal!!
I’ll be leaving for Disneyland in 50 days… but who is counting? I still have to get my hotel transportation and park tickets—which I’m planning on doing this week. If you’ve been to Disneyland, do you think 2 day park hopper is enough for park tickets? I’ll be getting in late on Wednesday, thinking expo and park day on Thursday, 5k and park day Friday, 10k-Downtown Disney-relaxing on Saturday and then half marathon and home on Sunday!
I wish I could be joining Lauren in Vancouver in August, but the states are not going to finish themselves.
