Just got back from Walt Disney World, where it is was freezing degrees! My hubby and I kept checking the weather report before we went and every time we did, it just got colder. When they showed snow, sleet and freezing rain for the morning of the half-marathon, we couldn't believe it, but we figured we better wear a few extra layers anyway. Well, we get up at 2:15 AM, yes I said AM, to grab a bagel and catch the bus to Epcot, where the race started, and sure enough, it was freezing cold and snowing! Okay, so we don't usually run if it's too cold, but we signed up, so we were going to run it and we did! We wore three shirts, including an Under Armour Cold Gear one, a zip-up hoodie, and wore two pairs of running pants! Honestly, the snow wasn't that bad, but when it turned to sleet, then freezing rain about two miles into the run, that wasn't really too fun. I mean, we had fun, but I could have done without the wintry mix, thank you very much! LOL!

OMG!! That's awesome that you still ran the half-marathon! Did you get a medal for participating? Hopefully you or your hubby get didn't get sick from running in the weather.

My cousin ran the full marathon and she came home sick as a dog. She went to work yesterday, but she stayed home in bed with Nyquil on the side table. She wants to go to CA to Disneyland to run the other marathon so she can get some kind of pin or another medal or something like that.

I'm hoping we don't! We tried to stay as dry as we could. And yup, we got medals. They're really cute! They have Donald Duck on them!

Hope your cousin feels better!
