I woke up on Sunday at 3am without the help of an alarm clock and a surprising amount of energy. I guess this is what happens when your body gets used to waking up in the middle of the night to run. Gabe and I headed out to Epcot and boy was it cold. Luckily we stopped by Target the night before to pick up sweats which were on clearance which we tossed at the start of the race. I must state, I was in an intense form of pain before the start of the race on Sunday. I had major blister issues which actually became quite the ordeal - that's for another post.

Unlike the other 3 races this week, I did not take mile marker photos. I did however stop for MANY photo opportunities. Since I wasn't running for time, I wanted to make the best of these 26.2 miles. Especially considering the amount of pain I was in. I decided on doing the 1:30 on 1:00 off when Gabe and I split apart at the 3 mile mark. He was running for time and I was running to survive - I did not want to slow him down.
Meghann! Yay! I waved and kept on moving.
Of course I couldn't go any further until I took the obligatory castle photo. While going through my photos, I noticed that every single one, my right knee is bent, taking pressure off of my foot..... I had no idea I was even doing that.
