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!
Now, I fully admit to being one of those who, at first, was resistant to making the switch from rubber 5k medallions to medal. They were cute! And when worn under a heavier medal, they also acted as a belly bumper guard. But I’ve now jumped to the other side of the fence when it comes to 5k medals. Especially with this ONE!
But this one? So far, the Minnie 10k medal is my favorite. I’m already imaging lovely park outfits to color-coordinate with this beauty. Cute, cute, CUTE!
Now, the half marathon one? I already love it from the photo alone. And I have the feeling that once I see it in person, I’m going to really, REALLY love it! Look at those colors!
But the 25th anniversary marathon medal … oh my gosh … nope, I think this one is truly my favorite. So, so gorgeous and I love how there’s layers and … wait … wait … is that a spinner?? <<heart pounds with spinner joy>> I can’t wait to have this bad boy slipped around my neck and I’m feeling pretty motivated to get out there and run right now!
I have to say that at first glance, I’m feeling a little iffy about the Goofy Challenge medal, mostly because of my OCD desire to have things even and symmetrical. But that only means I will absolutely love it in person and have to take back my words.
Now, the Dopey Challenge medal? Love, love, LOVE!!! It’s from one of my favorite scenes in Snow White, when Dopey pops his head out from underneath a pile with the gems in his eyes. Very clever design and I can’t wait to see it in person. Better yet, when I have THAT bad boy slipped around my neck!
What about you?
