-Hello! Oh hi hello is there someone in there Its so good to see you thank you so much
-Good luck on your run thank you that was a really awesome interaction so we are actually going backstage where we lined up for Grinchmas that time so this is where we lined up not as Christmasy anymore oh my god guess what we get to go under The Hogwarts Express its so not magical this view but that is the track for Hogwarts Express so neat oh puddle ugh and another water stop I think I’ll stop I spy a Hulk thing I’ll take a selfie and I’ll put that selfie in right here ok these costumes are really cool so creative mile 2 marker I got it this time they got the fountains going for us its like the Hulk colors so there was this guy team member who is out there holding that said this is a lot of work for a free banana I’ll put his picture in here just cause I thought it was so funny I forgot to record so we get to run by Harry Potter not in but I think after this I deserve a butterbeer so thats where I will be going afterwards and now we are in line to meet the Knight bus driver cause I’ve never done one of these races and I want to take advantage of these cool characters -Hufflepuff colors I’m just saying
I am Hufflepuff -you are
I am that was awesome the shrunken head was actually talking with me and he said I’m wearing Hufflepuff colors which I guess I am but he knew I was a Hufflepuff and they said Hufflepuffs are the nicest people they don’t even keep score when they play quidditch and I said as long as I get a donut at the end I’m fine and now were going by Men in Black not open yet I just realized they are playing the Men in Black theme song I think I need to watch that movie again ok so I’m not a huge Simpson fan so its a very long line we got Krusty and I forget his name you guys are going to hate me I don’t remember his name so I do suggest getting something to put your stuff in still taking recommendations I suggest good grip shoes cause its slippery and my shoes are pretty old so any suggestions on sneakers would be great I kinda want asics I heard they are really good I have Adidas but were going by the water show just for us thats awesome so Mari Gras is coming up and we got some Mardi Gras friends out Hi everyone
-yeah Mardi Gras and I’ll put that photo in here too this is so cool its such a fun race now by Despicable Me ok Shrek and Donkey have a long line -I know its like completely plaid and brown you can meet both Transformers thats cool I’m not really into Transformers so I’m not gonna wait for that just ran past mile 3 I always like to run past the finish line though so I’m going to save some energy we got The Blues Brothers Its also getting extremely muggy cause of the rain this morning alright here we go woohoo finish line we did it hello thank you and here’s what it looks like Shrek and I think Bubblebee wait hold on it spins oh thats so neat I gotta get my banana and my water and a little snack pack look at that perfect wow this is pretty decent for a little box yeah we got pretzels go go squeeze trail mix and a granola bar pretty decent and you can also meet the Minion and the lion from Madagascar so I think I’ll start with the lion first It looks like they have cut the line but maybe I’ll try the Minions instead Hi! so thats it for like actual race stuff I heard Voodoo Donuts has a special 5k donut and I’m gonna go check that out and then were probably going to head home because first it was raining so I was wet and then I was running and it stopped raining and I was sweaty so now its raining again and I’m freezing I’m absolutely freezing so my suggestion to you is if your ok with a backpack bring a spare cloths what not really great about Universal is the parking garage is so far away but if you really wanna spend time here I would suggest either leaving it in your car or bringing it with you alright so were here at Voodoo Donuts and I am just going to get the 5k so we made it into Voodoo Donuts I’m just getting the 5k one so I have the 5k donut It is a peanut butter banana Bavarian donut so lets see how this is it looks ginormous oh my gosh this is hug not quite in yet its got a lot of filling its a light peanut butter taste inside I’ll rate this 4 Shreks cause Shreks on our medal so 4 Shreks yeah I like it so that will do it for us here at Universal Orlando We had a great day got a great medal I will say I am freezing I can’t wait to go take a hot shower just put on every layer of cloths Its not even that cold out its just cause I’m wet so if you liked that video click that video right above my head its another 5k at Give Kids the World and then if you click that one it will be whatever Brandon decides to put in there make sure to hit that subscribe button and hit that notification bell so you’ll know when we post a videos every Monday and Friday until next time see ya real soon
