Trying to run disney

We just finished three great races at Disney World this weekend as part of the Princess Half Marathon weekend. It didn't start off that great though. Lacey arrived at Disney bright and early on Thursday morning but I on the other hand had my flight delayed by 7.5 hours!!!! Not what you want to hear when you are going to Disney. It wasn't even a weather issue either, it was a maintenance issue. Of course I want to be safe, but they could have called in another aircraft or something. This delay caused me to miss the race expo on Thursday, so I was unable to pick my bib up for the race on Friday morning. This was a bit annoying but wasn't a huge deal because I was able to pick it up at the race the morning of. Which reminds me that I never did post a picture of our final 5K outfit. I'll get on that later this week.

So, remember on Thursday we wrote that we wanted to try some new stuff during this trip? Well, we've been here for 5 days already and have not done anything new yet! Hopefully we will work on that in the coming days.

How was your weekend? Did you try anything new?

  1. Ughhh I hate flight delays. I mean, if they are for weather then that is out of your control, but they really need more back-up planes for maintenance issues. Glad you finally made it though!

  9. Nooo not the expo! That's the best part! Hopefully you made the most of the delay :) being a writer helps. You can always think of something to write when you have an unexpected amount of free time.

  13. Unfortunately flight delays happen and they are definitely inconvenient. My husband is a pilot for Southwest Airlines and usually it's not as easy as just calling another plane in. Ahhh, the joys of travel. Hope you guys are having a wonderful time!
