Beauty and the Beast 5K - Orlando, Florida

We all had to be up at 4am to catch the bus going to the race at 5am.  Having only recently arrived in Florida and having to adjust to the 4 hour time difference we all wanted to stay in bed that early in the morning!  Our race started at 7am outside of Epcot and the temperature was about 70 degrees.  Besides the humidity, it was a nice morning for a run.  This was the first race Auntie Jennie has run with the gps watch she got for Christmas.  It was really nice to be able to tell how far we had run, as well as keep track of our mile pace. 

This race had Disney Princesses posted along the race course cheering us on.  We saw Pocahontas, Jasmine, Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), Belle, & Cinderella.  Hannah was excited to see all the Princesses, but she was most excited when we ran past a squirrel!  Gotta love Hannah :)  Everyone loved our Pink & Black Tutus (A special thank you to Krazykidlets for making our tutus).  Hannah kicked it into high gear for the last quarter mile of our run for a personal best 5k time of 28:32!!
Hannah and Jennie were not the only racers of the day, nor was the 5K the only race Hannah ran that day!  Owen ran the 200 meter race, Ava had her first offical race - the diaper derby - and Hannah ran both the 400 meter AND the Mickey Mile all in the same day.  It was a bit crazy and hectic getting from one race to another but all in all the whole thing was an amazing experience :)
