HALF-MARATHON CONTINUESI was definitely feeling fatigue, but Animal Kingdom is always a bright spot for me, so I was very much enjoying the run through the park. We got some good shots through here.
And then all too soon we were headed out of the park. We ate some fuel along in here and saw another character that Paige wanted to get. The line was short, so why not?
Then on we went to the slog along Osceola Parkway. With some fatigue and pain setting in, we did walk through a few of our run intervals, but we were still doing pretty decently on time and all of us were having fun, so I was feeling more optimistic about finishing with Chris and Paige. Gradually the fuel I'd taken in seemed to be starting to help and I was feeling a little bit more energy and we soon saw another cute character stop we opted to get.
Donald is adorable in is vacation duds! Before too long we got to make the turn toward Hollywood Studios with a very welcome downhill section and I was definitely feeling better and knew I was good to finish out the race. Paige was holding strong although definitely more willing to walk and stop for pictures as time went on. LOL Into Hollywood Studios and a shot with our favorite WDW ride!
The park was open and there were some runners heading off to ride TOT, but I think we all knew that wasn't going to be happening for us for a variety of reasons (time, fatigue, etc). So we went on to see one of my all-time favorite characters.
I had so badly wanted Edna Mode during the marathon and she wasn't out, so no way I wasn't getting her on this race. Once done there, you can see the runners behind us heading out a gate. Yep, that was the entirety of our time in HS. It was pretty ridiculous, but whatcha gonna do? We were down to a final 5k or so at this point and all of us were happy and I know that final bit of the race course well and I always love the Boardwalk and the run through Epcot, so I was excited for Paige to enjoy it. She was feeling the love too!
On to the Epcot and the finish line!
