- I could never run Tink again.? #SadTrombone? I know, I know, it’s not really a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but remember, I love this race.? More than any other runDisney event.? Tink’s my girl!? That option is REALLY not high on my list.? I’m loyal to a fault when I find something I love, and well, I love the Tink Half Weekend.
- I could take the family for a super fast in and out trip.? This is possible considering we will live in Phoenix by the time the race comes around.? Much easier on transportation if we choose to drive or fly.? And y’all know I’m ok with taking my kids out of school for Disney.? But the end of the year is tricky for the reasons I mentioned above, so this might be a play it by ear thing.
- Pull the Mother’s Day card: as in, it’s MY day and I’m going to spend it doing the thing I want to do.? By myself.? The greatest gift you can give to me is a weekend for myself.
Wow.? That sounds crazy selfish, doesn’t it? I mean, we know distance running is a selfish sport due to the time you need to commit to training. But to run away from the kids on Mother’s Day seems like I’m telling them I really really don’t like you.? Is it just me?? Will I get over that?? I don’t know… it just seems wrong to make that choice at this point in time.
The great news is I have a long time before I need to make the leap to registration.? I also have a super amazing supportive husband and family who will understand and help me come to the best decision for all of us.
I’d love to hear from you!? What are your thoughts on the change?? Vote in the poll and sound off in the comments.
Will you run Tinker Bell on Mother’s Day?
