Star Wars: The Light Side – Half Marathon Recap

On January 15, 2017 I ran my first half marathon of the year. It’s taken me some time to post about it because I came back for Disneyland and hit the ground running with a lot of stuff at work. A lot of things I had planned went to the wayside, but now I’m finally…

A runDisney Fact You Might Not Have Known

It wasn’t too long ago that I came across an article on Mouse Plant about the First and Only Disneyland Marathon. In honor of the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend taking place in Disneyland this weekend, I thought it might be fun to dive into runDisney history. In 1995, Disneyland host a full marathon celebrating…

Disney’s Enchanted 10K

Yesterday I took part in the Enchanted 10K, part of the Princess Half Marathon weekend. I was excited to do a different race and 6.2 miles seemed like a piece of cake after the Sarasota Music Half a couple weeks ago. And even more exciting, I was placed in corral A! Who knew I’d gotten…

Volunteering at the Princess Half Marathon Weekend

So this year I got to do something new at Disney’s Princess Half Marathon weekend. And I’m not talking about the race. I volunteered to work the Fit for a Princess Expo. I was stationed at the ChEAR Squad booth where I was giving the spectators their swag and wristbands. I was glad I’ve done…

My First 13.1

On November 8th, I did something I never thought I could do.  I ran my first half marathon.  About three years ago, my girlfriend, Muffy, got me into running.  We did some 5Ks that I really enjoyed, and I began to run those pretty often, but that was the extent.  I always looked at half marathoners…

Wine & Dine Half Marathon

Back in 2012 I ran the Wine and Dine Half Marathon and it was my very first half. This year I ran it again and it was a completely different experience. It was wet. Yes, you heard me. It was wet…rained basically the entire time. And I can tell you right now, unless I have…

Mission Accomplished: Dumbo Double Dare

What an amazing weekend! To start with, I hadn’t been to Disneyland since I was a kid. I think the last time I was there was the year California Adventure opened and we didn’t get the chance to go there. This time we did and I loved it. Not to mention, it was great to…

Disneyland Half Bling

This year I will be running my first Disneyland race, and while I’m there I’ll be running my first challenge race. I’ll be doing the Dumbo Double Dare because Dumbo is my favorite character and I was not passing up the opportunity to get a medal with Dumbo on it. I have to say though,…

March #TrDPhotoADay Challenge

Even though I said in my post last month I wasn’t going to continue with the #TrDPhotoADay in March, I did. My sorority little convinced me because she liked seeing my Disney-themed pictures. So here’s how it went. I think Team runDisney had to be a little more creative this month since no runDisney races were…

Why You Should runDisney

Yes, yes, yes, I’m still on my Disney kick. I was actually inspired to write this post based on a conversation I had with my best friend, Mert, following the Princess Half Marathon. She’s no newbie when it comes to half marathons and had been trying to do the Princess Half for a couple years,…

Returning to Where it Began

As an annual pass holder to Walt Disney World, I have the perk of signing up for runDisney races before they go on sale to the public. Well with Wine and Dine registration opening on Tuesday, I decided to get a head start and sign up. This will be the third half marathon I run…

Team runDisney February Challenge

Last month Team runDisney did a Photo-A-Day Challenge…well, the fun continued into February. I still managed to complete the challenge, but I wasn’t as enthusiastic about it this month as I was last month. It’s surprising because I was actually doing a runDisney race this month, but I think it was just losing it’s thrill…
