I spent the majority of Friday night waking up from nightmares. Ya know the ones you have about sleeping in and missing the race? Yeah, I had those ALL.NIGHT.LONG!
My mom and I spent Saturday morning over at Celebration’s Porch & Yard Sale. We couldn’t spend too much time over there because I was going to meet some blogger princesses at Pizza Fusion at noon. So, my mom and I picked up a few goodies (because rich people have good stuff!), and then we (or should I say “I”) got lost in Celebration and landed us about 10 minutes late to the blogger meet-up.
It was such a neat experience to walk in and see so many familiar faces. I’ve never met any of these wonderful ladies before, but I feel like I already knew so much about them.
(stealing some of Meghann‘s pictures)
I customized my own personal pizza with roma tomatoes, portabello mushrooms, organic mozzerella, and pesto sauce. Delicious! The crust was crispy and oh so tasty! All of the ingredients at Pizza Fusion are organic or all-natural. Loved it! I can see myself going there often when I move to Florida.
Half of us agreed we all needed a little bit more Menchie’s in our lives, so we headed over there promptly after lunch. I had never been, but I had read all about this amazing fro-yo place on a lot of blogs.
My mom loved it!
It was such a great experience to meet all of these inspiring, amazing women. My running journey would not have been the same had I not followed their journeys as well. I hope to see all of them again sometime very soon!
After finishing our delicious fro-yo, my mom and I headed back to the hotel to rest by the pool.
My mom enjoyed an orange creamsicle smoothie while I attempted to catch up with Google Reader on my iPhone.
My very good friend, Brandy, came in to town around 6:30 to help cheer me on as I run the half-marathon. We wanted to have dinner at Bahama Breeze, but the wait was incredibly long, as was the wait at T-Rex at Downtown Disney. Brandy and I had dinner at House of Blues when I was in Orlando in December, and we were both craving their pasta again. And since I needed to “carb up”, we decided to head on over there. My plan was to be in bed by 9, but we actually didn’t even get a table until almost 9.
I ordered the Wild Mushroom and Roasted Chicken Pasta without the chicken. I’m in love with this meal!
We quickly made our way back to the resort, hopped in bed, and set our alarms for 2am. Disney put the fear of god in to us about being at Epcot at o’dark thirty.
I’ll be back with my race recap shortly!
