Flying South

Today we are off on a whirlwind mini-trip to Southern California. By the time you read this I will be in the friendly skies. I chose to do the hour plane ride rather than the six hour car ride which ended up being a great idea since we have done a ton of driving the past few weekends with going to Tahoe and Santa Cruz.

The main objectives of this trip are to run a 5k at Disneyland and go to the USC football game which are both tomorrow. Call us crazy! We are flying back after the game since it's at 12:30 (Boo! Who likes 12:30 games? Nobody!) I know the moment I get home tomorrow I will get into bed and fall asleep.
We definitely did not train enough for the 5k but I am more doing it for the experience rather than getting a certain time. As long as I finish, I don't care what my time is. It's a fun run so you don't have a timing chip or anything. (I made a counter to today for the 5k which is at the bottom of the page.) I think doing the 5k will light a fire under me to seriously start training for the Tinkbell Half Marathon I've signed up for in January. When you run a race at Disneyland you get to go "backstage" behind the doors so I am looking forward to that. I have actually been "backstage" once when my high school band went to Disneyland and played there.

Today we are going to Disneyland for a few hours so I can finally ride the new Star Tours ride. The theme for the 5k is actually Star Tours.
For those headed to games tomorrow, remember it will be a long day. I'm definitely excited to see my school again. It's been 2 years since I was back and they built all these new buildings on campus. Hoping for a big win to start the season off right!

And since posts are always better with pictures here are a couple of things that combine my weekend activities! I actually have both.

Have a great weekend! xoxo
