i'm about to take on the disneyland tinkerbell half marathon with 3 familiar faces. set, go. it's a heart pounding 13.1 miles of neverland excitement. they've come along way but are they ready for the challenge. she wants to quit so bad. and brace yourselves for the unexpected. i think her heart was racing and her blood i think her heart was racing and her blood pressure was a little bit low. ♪ welcome to the tinkerbell half marathon expo.
this is a two day event at disneyland leading up to the 13.1 mile run. the expo is packed with runners. all getting ready for the big race. for me it's an opportunity to meet people from all around the world. so these are grab bands. what makes this half marathon so special is that i'm not doing it alone. i've invited three familiar live big faces. jessica lamerson, jennifer teller and diane duncan. jessica's a stay at home mom who had a hard time putting herself first. keep going, keep going. i remember how much she's struggled during our first workout together on the stair mill. today she's lost 35 pounds and is taking on her first half marathon. jennifer's a working mother of three who had a hard time saying no to fast food.
i now have her saying yes to healthy eating and working out. she ran the tinkerbell half marathon last year but struggled to finish. i was dead for four days and i barely made it. today she's down 32 pounds and is hoping to run her best race yet. diane's a single mom who had a lot of bad habits. a really bad tendency to do alot of frozen foods; mac and cheese, chicken nuggets, burritos. when i first met her she dreamed of completing a 5k. how you feeling? i feel good. good. diane has lost over 25 pounds and is ready to run not her first, but second half marathon. okay you guys so we're going to go get our t-shirts and this the thing that's going to be really cool because you might be in a new size.
i'm a small now. we're you a small last year? no. medium. i was not medium last year. i'm going to go medium too and we're going to get to our goal but where are we starting this year? i think i'm an xl but i was in a double, triple x. you were. yeah let's get the extra small. the extra small. you were totally a small. you're totally a small. yes. how exciting. yay. now i think this might be good. perfect. i am so excited to have the girls here. i've been at the expo all weekend getting prepared for this race and i keep telling on everybody my girls are going to run on sunday; so i got them all in my hotel room. i'm a crafty girl. crafty, crafty, crafty. so we are painting t-shirts and we've got our pink and we're honoring tinkerbell with our little bit of green. we're pinkerbells our friends said.
i think that's what's so special about this race is bringing these girls together because they started different places. like jennifer for example when we first met sitting in her living room with her treadmill right there and her tinkerbell medal you know and she did it and she signed up and she completed it but she wasn't as proud as she would have liked to have been. my first half i was definitely not ready. i was a mess. i barely finished. i thought i was going to die. diane i mean give me a break with diane but when we first met it was hilarious. she just wants to be that a student in class. follow the directions exactly how she's supposed to and i love these t-shirts right now that we're making because it's sleeking under her and she's just like that's what's perfect about it that it's imperfect. i never thought i'd be doing half marathon and in fact i think if i had thought of it at that time i probably would've just terrified me. i think that i ran half a mile and was just completely out of breath.
i am so excited for the race to tomorrow. i did my first half marathon just a month ago and it was so much fun. i'm like i just got to do it again. well at the beginning of my live big journey i couldn't run for more than like a minute. the longest distance i've gone was a ten k and it was so much fun. i just got to do it again. the longest distance i've gone was a ten k. by the end i was exhausted. i never imagined i'd be doing a half marathon. for training i have been basically putting miles in. my boys have been riding their scooters or riding their bikes and i'm running after them. coming up, and later.passo pass out just having trouble breathing.
