ReVerb - Day 3

So I've not been very good at blogging's a combination of lack of interest(!) and lack of time...simple as that. Well, I guess I also don't have a whole lot to blog about...which is why I'm pretty excited to have stumbled upon this Reverb 10 Project

For the month of December, they are providing a prompt for reflecting back on the year...sounds good to me!!

And so...the prompt for today, Day 3 is...

Pick one moment during which you felt most alive this year. Describe it in vivid detail (texture, smells, voices, noises, colors).

I would have to say that hands down, the day/moment in which I felt most alive was March 7, 2010...that is the day I ran the Disney Princess 1/2 Marathon in Orlando. The longest running race I've ever completed and even came in under my 3 hour goal. I was pretty excited when I finished and maybe even a bit proud of myself...I've never been a fan of running and training for this was not much fun either, but it paid off.

By far, a Disney race is the best kind of race to participate in...not only was it great fun, but the entire time my senses were on overload with great music every 1/2 mile or so, characters cheering on the runners every couple miles as well and in this case a fantastic crowd of women runners who were ready to compete and/or just have fun. Such a good time.I cannot leave out the fantastic experience of meeting new friends that day as well.

And to be able to follow up the race with a day at WDW parks...well, not much in life can beat that. The only thing that could have made this day any better was if my mom and Ethan had made it out of the room in time to see me running or finishing. Instead, I met them at the hotel restaurant after the race and we enjoyed a great day together. 

March 7, 2010...I will remember you for a long time.
