Star Wars 10k and relaxation

When runDisney first announced the Star Wars Half Marathon weekend I was in from the word go. Then they announced the Rebel Challenge.

What is it?

Run the 10k on Saturday and the half marathon on Sunday and get an awesome 3rd challenge medal for your effort. 19.3 miles total. I was in. I signed up for the 5k as well to make a grand weekend of it. I wanted to see if I could complete that many miles. Why? I signed up to do my first full marathon and wanted to see if I had what it takes.

Back to the 10k. Hubby did not run or walk this one. He did however get up early to walk me to the shuttle. He was in charge of getting the kids ready for the kids races after my 10k.

 I was in Corral D for the 10k and Corral C for the half.

Done!!! Now onto the kids races. Shelby did not want to get ready so she was not fully outfitted at race time. We just went with it.

 Shawn ran first. He was so excited. He never wanted to stop.

 Thanks runDisney for 2 awesome races. Next time you might want some bathrooms for the kids. That was a huge complaint I heard while waiting.

Now it was time to relax at the beach and get good grub. Of course when in Balboa you must eat at Ruby's.

Such good food with good company. My sister and her family came down and spent the day with us. It was just what was needed.

 So this cute baby just came up on the beach and hung out for awhile. So cute.
 First time in the ocean had to be documented. He loved it.

 She wanted to just build a sand castle.

Of course we had to go over to the fun zone at Balboa. We even did a little shopping as well. We had a great day. It was perfect. I was so ready to run the half the next day.
