Surreal is the word of the day. This whole experience is definitely dreamlike and magical, but scary and nerve-wracking. Tonight we wake up at 2:00 am and head out the door at 2:30 to get ourselves to the Epcot lot. Are we really doing that?! I guess so. We’ll line up in our corrals by 5:00 am. Are we really doing that?! Yep, that’s happening. And then we’ll start running in the dark and 50 degree (hopefully) weather at 5:30 am. That can’t be right…. BUT IT IS! In 12 hours we’ll be starting the process… 12 short hours that are going to fly by and stand still all at once. I suppose we’re as ready as we’ll ever be.
Have I ever run before? I don’t think so. It all seems so surreal…see above

I don’t even know if I can come up with words. I keep going back and forth between “we’re on vacation and we’re hanging out” and “oh my god, this is real and we’re running 26.2 miles tomorrow.” It’s surreal.
