May 4th

May the 4th be with you…

This wasn’t going to be my post today, but after the actor that portrayed Chewey, Peter Mayhew. passed away on May 1st, I had to change it.

Yes I know that this is at Disney, and that this isn’t the actual character, but…I was in awe and blown away by the experience.It was like I was chatting with Chewey (of course), but really though!  I was overwhelmed.This was an amazing experience, and I am so happy that I was able to experience it.It was wonderful. Truly awesome, and a memorable experience.  I have loved the Star Wars movies, and most of the characters since I was twelve.

By the way, I hate the way I look in the pictures.  I have had about thirty pounds of regain, and it shows.  Ugh.

Blessings.

Disney Princess 5k

Well, the worst part was getting up at 3 am! Yes, 3:00 am!!  We had to be in our sections by 5:00 a.m.  So bus transports to the EPCOT staging area, walked around a bit, chatted with others, and got nervous.2019-Princess-5K-Course-Map-1Y’all!  I did this…well, Carmen and I did this!  And survived…eh, sort of! It was 74 degrees and about 80 percent humidity.  Ugh…not the best for this type of race…but again we survived.  Disney knows how to put on an event.  Bucket list. So I have on my bucket list as a Disney 1/2 Marathon (walking), but participating in a Disney Run is satisfying!!

374313063Not the most flattering picture…but I will take it!  I cried when I crossed the finish line…Y’all – four years ago I had to have a scooter to be able to survive our family trip to Disney.  I could never had walk over 20,000 steps.  So very grateful for my gastric sleeve, even with my 30 pound regain, for the opportunities to enjoy my life again.  To be able to experience these types of events with my friends and family is truly the BEST thing…truly grateful.

Love and blessings.
