One Month!

One month from today, we will be packed and headed to MCO for Walt Disney World's Marathon Weekend 2012!

Our plans are pretty similar to last years - head to the race expo at the ESPN Wide World of Sports, get our race packets, pins, mouse ears, maybe shop, then head to our rental villa (Windsor Hills) to meet up with my parents again.  Then, we'll celebrate my mom's birthday at Kouzzina by Cat Cora at Disney's Boardwalk - one of my favorite restaurants!

Of course, since I made my big announcement on Friday (with a Giveaway) you'll understand now why I had to defer my half-marathon registration to the 2013 WDW Half Marathon - I'll be 25 weeks pregnant come marathon weekend and the idea of running 13.1 6 months pregnant wasn't so appealing.  Frankly, running 3.1 at 26 weeks seems like a struggle!  I'm still regularly running 2-3 miles 1-3 times per week, but it's so much harder!  

But, I'm excited to earn the cool Donald Duck medal and, weather being decent, I plan to go cheer on my husband and some friends while they run the half marathon!  And Noah gets to run in the kids race again - this time he's a much more experienced walker/runner, so I shouldn't have to carry him to the finish line!
13 months and toddling along

And, in one month, I get to tour the parks again while pregnant.  My last trip pregnant, I was only 16 weeks - barely showing.  This time, I'll be seemingly huge and much more uncomfortable!!  Luckily, I'm more interested in the magic and the "extras" than I was 3 years ago, so I'll have more to see or do when I won't be on the big coasters and other attractions suggested to avoid.

While I'm extremely busy and may be a bit behind on blogging during the next couple of weeks, expect to see some Pregnancy Touring Tips/plans for me and you, in case you're considering traveling while you're pregnant as well!


  1. It should be fun - running at Disney is the way to go. One day, I'll do the full through all the parks. I dare you to try ;-) Maybe not pregnant, though!

  2. I could see the shows being good, but since I already have a 2 year old, the long shows are most likely out. We're going to try Lion King, but I highly doubt he'll sit through a 20+ minute show!!

  3. I'm new to your blog but congratulations! I went to Disney pregnant back in Oct of 2010 and was about 5 months along.. it was great! I was pregnant enough to be showing but still feeling pretty good and able to walk a decent amount without getting too tired. I thought the studios was the best park for a pregnant woman what with the shows and indoor attractions. Good luck!

  4. Sounds like you'll have a great trip! Running and Disney....I'm a little jealous, though I wouldn't be up for 13.1
