The TNT staff asked me to bring Kate to the meeting so that our team could meet her and she loved every minute of our 2 and 1/2 hours there. The coach, coaching assistant, mentor and team captain were so amazing with Kate. They dressed up in Disney costumes, played games with her and generally spent the entire evening getting to know her. Barb (Tinkerbell) also gave her a "magic wand" and taught her how to use it properly to ensure the her wishes would come true. (Word has it that Barb is making sure that Kate's wish for her own Minnie Mouse dress comes true). Seeing Kate surrounded by complete strangers who were all pulling for her and for so many others with leukemia brought tears to my eyes.
If I was excited about the race before, I am ecstatic now. In other news, I have found out that if anyone else wants to run the marathon or 1/2 marathon at Disney they can train with any local TNT group and run with our team on race day! Would that be a blast?!!!! I'll take as many of you as I can get. I'll also take your donations but don't worry I'll be hitting you up for them shortly. :)
All of the crazy Disney Crew! I think
that it will be nearly impossible NOT to have fun with these ladies.
