Mornin’ yall! I had a great weekend with my family which was JUST what I needed to help me get over my funk. I still don’t feel out of the woods as far as fitness and my funk go, but my overall attitude is much much better. Amazing what some time with family and a snowball on a hot day can do for you!
Ok, so you know that I am planning to run goofy this year, but did you know that this year also marks the 20th anniversary of the Disney Marathon? Since Disney goes all out for every special occasion imaginable, you can bet they have some special things planned for the anniversary celebration! For starters, runners will get a special 20th anniversary mickey medal for completing the marathon! Also, there is a new post race party at Downtown Disney, and, in honor of this year, the full marathon course has been altered for even more fun (with a special surprise at mile 20!)
“Runners to Race Around the “High Banks’’ and “Bases’’ As Part of 20thAnniversary Walt Disney World Marathon Course”
Oh yes my friends, we will be running through the speedway and around the bases at the Wide World of Sports complex/baseball stadium! How fun is that? Not only does it sound fun, but it will break up the miles between a couple of the parks and there won’t be as long of a “lonely stretch” if you know what I mean. I can’t wait to see what the mile 20 surprise is, all I know is I will have my camera!
Need more incentive?
“In addition to the 26.2-mile marathon, the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna (Jan. 10-13) will feature events for the entire family such as Kids’ Races throughout the weekend, including the Mickey Mile, a Family Fun Run 5K on Friday, the Half Marathon on Saturday and the Marathon on Sunday. There is also Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge which involves running the Half Marathon and the full Marathon – 39.3 miles! The Health and Fitness Expo runs throughout the weekend at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and features the latest in running technology and fashion, as well as renowned running experts like Jeff Galloway, the official training consultant for runDisney.”
It’s no secret I am a HUGE runDisney fan, completing the half marathon, full marathon, wine and dine half, Princess half, royal family 5k, Halloween 5k, and castaway 5k. WHEW! I highly recommended running this race, or any runDisney race!
