^^^It was heartbreaking to leave the blue skies behind.
I just had the best weekend with my family.
We left on Friday morning for Long Beach and it was go go go.
We picked up our official race bibs and went to dinner in Newport.
On Saturday morning my dad and Allie ran a 5K through Disneyland,
and then we spent the day in Disneyland!
It was 80 degrees and fabulous.
We ate an early dinner and went to bed at 8:30pm that night
because we had to get up at 3:45am to get read for our race.
At 5am we hit the ground running (literally).
My mom, Carli, and I were just three of the 12,000 runners out.
It was a lot more fun than I thought.
And I could do it! I did do it!
13.1 miles later we crossed the finish line together.
We spent our last 24 hours in sunny Palm Springs. Perfection.
I'm so proud of my family. We all achieved amazing things this weekend!
