runDisney Surprises


If you are a runDisney fan, you probably already heard about the new(ish) runDisney Twitter account. But, what you may not know is runDisney now has it’s very own YouTube channel. Sweet! Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss out on the fun. So what got all this started? You might remember my post about the Great Medal Caper, and me saying something about unlocking fun runDisney surprises along the way. Well, the next level was unlocked and the surprise was a runDisney YouTube channel, fun!


They have a bunch of different “sections” on the channel such as travel tips, Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend, and Disneyland half marathon weekend to name a few. I was scrolling through today, and there is actually a section for “runDisney fan videos” and what do you know, a familiar face!

After going through some of the videos, I picked out a couple favorites to show you. First of all, the recap of last year’s Disneyland half marathon got me really excited/anxious/nervous for this year’s race. It’s going to be amazing!

Next, I found this video, the course reveal for the 20th anniversary Walt Disney World marathon weekend. Disney loves to celebrate anniversary years, and I can’t wait to run this special course as part of Goofy’s race and a half challenge, and of course get my special 20th anniversary medal. Of course, I would be lying if I didn’t also say I am way nervous to run Goofy!

While the Disneyland half marathon in California is sold out for this year, you can still register for Disney’s marathon weekend races!

  • Full marathon– 81% Full
  • Half Marathon – 70% Full
  • Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge – 88% Full

Also, those of you participating in the Tinkerbell half marathon in California in January, have you seen the new logo design for this year, it’s so cute!


I just love the green color. One of these years I WILL make it out there in January to run this race, it’s certainly on my bucket list!

One more thing…I may or may not have done this:


I wasn’t going to, I REALLY wasn’t. It’s hard to justify two trips so close together, so I was just going to run the Rock n Roll New Orleans full which is on the same day. Them, my mom informs me she really wants to run Princess again, and offered to pay for my race registration and we are going to share a room! Obviously, I am not going to turn that down, so…yeah….I will be back for the anniversary medal!!!

QOTD: What is your favorite color for a race shirt? Short of long sleeves? Tech fabric or no?

  1. I love tech tops! The bright tops are my favorite. Happy for you that you’ll be running the Princess! I’ll be there too for my 1st half!! 🙂

    Some of my run club friends are doing the February Princess half in Disney, they were telling me about it this morning. I would love to do a race there and probably will eventually, maybe a full :). I love the races that do tech tees if it’s a women’s fit, short sleeves are a must. And any race shirt that isn’t white is awesome :).

  3. I love the tech material and I like both short sleeve and long sleeve shirts. I like all kinds of colors too except white. I love wearing race shirts but I’m so afraid I’m going to stain the white and end up not wearing it as much. I love the Princess shirt but I end up not wearing it because of that fear. I love the Tinker Bell design and wish they had done something like that for this year’s races.

  4. Ughhh so full so fast! I had little fantasies of running one of the January ones this year…guess I better hurry up and make up my mind, huh?! 🙂

  5. the run disney just looks so fun! i think thats awesome! my fave color would definitely be something SO bright! like neon pink of course! :o) SPA love!

    tech tops in bright colors for me!!! 🙂

  7. Whoo! I knew you’d be back for another round of Princess…after all, how could you resist another anniversary race/bling 😉

  8. I am seriously considering running the Princess Half too! I am SOOO close to registering for the race because it is another anniversary medal and I simply can’t resist them. 😉

  9. Ahh yay for princess! I SO want to run that one day. I’m getting excited and nervous for Goofy!

  10. Makes me wish I could run it again this year. Such a fun marathon weekend. I’d love to do the Princess sometime too.

  11. That’s exactly what my mom did (minus wanting to run it with me). Definitely helped my wallet! 🙂

  12. I love bring colors and short sleeves for race shirts, and I definitely love women’s cut tech shirts… I think every race should have a women’s cut shirt. I mostly stick to women based runs for that reason.

    I am jealous of your Princess registration! That is the race got me motivated to start running. I was hoping to do it in 2013, but I am waiting to see what my husband’s school schedule looks like before I register.

  13. The Tinkerbell Half is definitely on my bucket list, too. It looks like so much fun!

  14. Woohoo! Congrats on being on the runDisney youtube!!! And yay for the princess half! I will be running it too!

  15. Yeah, that would make my decision pretty easy too. 🙂 Enjoy Princess 2013. I am on the fence.

    I love tech shirts. Seems like most are short sleeved so it is fun to get a cool long sleeved one.

  16. How exciting!! I’m signed up for Princess as well!! Its my goal that I will be up and running (pun intended) in time for Princess. 🙂

  17. I really want to do a Disney race some day but I never can plan so far in advance and they sell out so quickly! That’ll be so much fun!

  18. This looks so fun! I am by no means a runner but the Disney Marathons always look so fun!

  19. Running one of the Disney races is definitely on my bucket list! They look so fun and exciting!

  20. I am running the princess half as well—I had wanted to do the full but we are taking a family ski trip that weekend and I had to take one for the family. 🙂 Excited to check out the youtube channel–what fun!
