Chip 'n Dale

Hi, I’m Jess.  That’s me up there, and I just did something today that I never thought I would do.  I mean…ever.

I just registered for the Happy Haunted 5K at Walt Disney World this October.  Yeah.  That girl up there is going to run.  Nope, not because I’m being chased or it’s Black Friday or it’s rope drop at Hollywood Studios.  I’m going to run for…fun.

Animal Kingdom

I know, I can’t believe it, either.  And the registration fee isn’t refundable.  Not gonna lie, the Disney Villains Hollywood Bash following the day’s races was a factor.  My favorite park ’til 4:00 in the morning?  Hell yes!

Smee and Hook

I’m kind of scared.  This isn’t my thing.  I know a 5K isn’t a huge deal in the grand scheme of things, but I wouldn’t have even thought of it in the past.  Not an athlete, if you couldn’t tell.  😉  But I’m going to do this.  And I’ll do the Tower of Terror 10-Miler that the weekend is named for next year!!  And who knows what after that?

Disney's Grand Floridian

But here I am now.  A little freaked and a lot excited.  And I know this post seems a little narcissistic with all the pictures of myself, but I want to look back at this day and remember where it started.

Here’s to my first 5K!!
