Star Wars 10K – Darth Vader
3:15am – What on god’s green earth is going off and why so God Damn early! I roll over and look at my phone its blinding bright with a note saying, ‘Get up Sucka you got miles to log!’ I roll over and stare at the ceiling trying to conjure up why I keep doing this to myself and I remember, ‘For the Love Of Running!’ I get up, and drag my butt to the bathroom and change. I grab my energy drink my ‘NEW YORK’ Bagel and peanut butter cup and head out. I get out to the buses and I see a long line.. and all I could think to myself is crap.. I hope they aren’t sending one bus at a time.. and sure enough that is exactly what they were doing. But, I think someone had to have said something because within 10 mins 2 double busses showed up and we were off…
Where to begin…. So part of me getting back to running was to sign up for a race that I would be full heart in and ready to go. That race would become, the Star Wars Darkside Challenge down at Walt Disney World. I was so nervous about taking on not only a 10K but a half marathon as well. With my knee still being questionable, I knew that if I stuck to my running plan that I would push through with no issues. At least, I had hoped! There was being stoked, to being in pain, to the real reason I had come back to Disney. Here is how it all went down. and it all started with an Upper Respitory Infection the day before I flew out. Thank god for working in the medical field.. Got my Z Pack and Away I went!
