runDisney 2019: Race Day

Another run bites the dust! Race day came and went and today was an insane day! So my mom and I woke up at 3am got dressed and ready for the race and caught the bus at about 3:45am. We hung out at in frontĀ  of the stage until 4:30am, went over to the corrals and hung out for two hours due to the fact Disney decided to change up the run a bit and have mini waves in each corral so the traffic would be lighter. In my opinion, I don’t think it worked because we still got hit with walls of people, and walls of people who were walking. All and all the run took us 27 minutes to finish, I was hoping to PR this race BUT like I said there were so many people blocking it was hard to get around but it was still a lot of fun.

We got back to the hotel at 7 something, got in the shower and went straight to Disney Springs to pick up some gifts for family and friends. We headed back to the hotel hopped on the bus of shame (the bus to go home) and spent the rest of the day in the air. Overall the race was a lot of fun, 5k’s are my favorite because they take the least amount of time and I don’t get into my head. Congrats, to everyone who ran or participated in the 5k today because 3 miles is still a lot and you should be proud and wear your medal proudly because you accomplished those 3 miles! Good luck to everyone who are running, the 10k, 1/2, Goofy and or Dopey! You got this!

runDisney 2019!

Two weeks ago I had this semi crazy urge to check the runDisney website to see if there were any spots open for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend 5k because I absolutely LOVED the medal and to my surprise there were still spots and without even thinking I signed my mom and I up for the race…but we couldn’t get off of work for the entire race weekend (unfortunately). So on my crazy spur of the moment 5k purchase I booked a hotel, and flight so we leave Wednesday, go to the running expo, pick up some merch (hopefully), then go back to the hotel and sleep. While Thursday we will run, if we don’t make it to the expo on Wednesday we will go Thursday and not go to Hollywood Studios and then fly home with the most magical 5k medal ever Oswald the Lucky Rabbit!

We are only hours away from the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend! Where they will be celebrating its 20th anniversary of their half marathon.

20 years of half marathons is insane, just like the Goofy Challenge or the Dopey challenge! But whatever run we do we can always count and agree that its the most magical run ever! If the miles weren’t magical already Disney has decided to step up their magic game and added a lot of 20th anniversary surprises along with special anniversary t-shirts and commemorative finisher medals.

So are you running this weekend? Let me know in the comments below your runDisney experience.
