Which to Choose – Castaway Cay 5K or Star Wars 5K
I awoke this morning, got up, woke up the kids and went downstairs to make breakfast and pack lunches. I heard my phone dinging (meaning I had a text message), but thought nothing of it. Then another ding…but I resisted the urge to check my phone. It wasn’t until the kids were on the bus that I picked up my phone to see a runDisney tweet – #LetTheWookieeWin
I immediately got on Twitter to read, “A distance measured in Parsecs #runDisney #StarWars #LetTheWookieeWin.”
After some quick calculations, and without drinking my morning coffee, I figured out the race was a 13.1, but where and when. Soon runDisney spilled the beans – January 15-18, 2015 on the west coast in Disneyland Resort.
Not sigh that there’s another race, but sigh because I had just registered for the Inaugural Castaway Cay 5K on FRIDAY! And sigh there hasn’t been any communication from runDisney on how some of their best and craziest customers can #RunAllTherunDisneyRaces!!
Before you jump down my throat – yes, I know this is a #firstworldproblem and a stupid problem to have, but give the girl who has been undergoing breast cancer treatment a break – it’s these stupid problems that keep my mind off the real problems that I am dealing with daily!!
It’s a logistical problem. I am running my 2nd Dopey Challenge from January 8-11th. The Disney Cruise, Dream will set sail on January 12th for a 4 night cruise with the Inaugural Castaway Cay 5K on Wednesday, January 14th. The Dream doesn’t arrive back into port until Friday, January 16th at 7:30am EST. Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend begins on Thursday, January 15th with the 5K on Friday at 5:30am!!! There is absolutely no way to #RunAllTherunDisneyRaces and this saddens me.
Sadly, I shake my head. Why oh why runDisney did you not take into account that nutballs like me and Perfectly Goofy Gail would want to runDisney – ALL OF runDisney’s races.
So what to do, what to do….do I skip the Inaugural Castaway Cay 5K to run the Star Wars 5K – I need to make a choice and you may laugh, but for me it’s a tough choice to make!
Are you going to run #StarWarsHalf and #LetTheWookieeWin?
