For those who might have been struggling with their Goofy or Dopey training lately, the ultimate form of visual motivation had just arrived today … medals for the 2018 WDW Marathon Weekend!
And oh my gosh … they’re GORGEOUS!!!
After Jackey had mentioned how last year’s marathon weekend medals came out at around the same time, I’ve been looking forward to getting a first glimpse. runDisney surely did not disappoint! For the full article, head on over to the Disney Parks Blog. Until then, here they are, in all their glory! [click to continue…]
Dang my computer.
It has somehow, someway contracted a fierce runDisney virus that has somehow, someway registered me for the 2017 Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend Gauntlet Challenge. Not only that, but this pesky virus also somehow, someway managed to contact Jennifer from the Wish Upon A Star With Us travel agency about the sold-out Spider-Man 5k and bought a bib there as well. Clearly, I need to do more virus checks. And clearly, Jackey does, too, seeing as how she’s somehow, someway also found herself registered for all three races.
Clearly, that’s a lie. [click to continue…]
Today, I’m kicking off the first of many recaps for runDisney’s 2017 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna, starting with the Expo! I have to admit: I hate shopping, but I do LOVE the Disney race expos. It’s not even that I buy a bunch of things, I just love the environment. I especially love the expos in Disneyland as they are easy to get to, a bit more intimate but have all the things I love.
First thing I couldn’t wait to see was if there would be the fancy carpet heading down to bib pickup. We have a tradition of getting our picture taken here, as well as rolling down the ramp, but at Tinker Bell Half Marathon in May, there was no carpet. Luckily, they had a beautiful new bright colorful Pixar themed emblem right at the top of the ramp! I was happy. (It’s the little things!) However due to the excessive heat and the fact our dresses were sticking to our bodies we decided not to roll down the hill. [click to continue…]
My wife, Lauren, recently took part in the Joyful Miles Running Club Monthly Challenge. For the month of July, we challenged our followers to attempt at least 2 miles and/or 25 push-ups each day. She documented her daily progress, and the video can be seen here. She also kept a running diary of what she was going through each day, and she shares that with all of us here. [click to continue…]
Jackey and I had an AMAZING time this past weekend running all three races during the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend! Yep, it was broiling hot, but runDisney did a fantastic job keeping everyone safe and aware. We also made good choices and did our best to prepare for the heat so ain’t nothin’ gonna break-a our strides, nobody gonna slow us down, oh on, we got to keep on moving …
I totally hope the Matthew Wilder was playing in your head during that last sentence. ‘Cause that’s what I was going for. [click to continue…]
You know I love a good character picture. They’re one of the biggest differences between a runDisney and non-runDisney race! But also just as fun are those wonderful pictures you can get around the parks. And bonus … no lines, which is great for anyone worried about finishing in time!
If you watched our Jammin’ on the Run video about the Tinker Bell 5k, you might remember how our guest, Jennalyn, was in charge of making sure her group of friends got a ton of great pictures … despite there being only one character out on the course! So I have invited her back to share the locations of those awesome photo spots in Disneyland and California Adventure for the upcoming Disneyland races. [click to continue…]
