Disneyland vs Walt Disney World Racing | runDisney

I’ve been talking to a friend making her way to Disneyland for the first time for Tinker Bell weekend. She’s asked about rides, shows, and places to eat.  She’s a Walt Disney World runner and is curious how the races stack up. Disneyland vs Walt Disney World racing: which is best? Disneyland! No, wait, Walt […]

2016 Wine And Dine Half Marathon Corrals and Event Guide

The Wine and Dine weekend has been one heck of a challenge in recent years. There was the “Splash and Dash” of 2014 and the “Half of a Half” for 2015. What will 2016 bring? How about a new challenge race and, oh yeah, new morning start time. Love it or hate it, that’s what’s happening […]

2016 Star Wars Dark Side 10K Race Recap

Well, my whole premise on this one is going to be different than I thought. That’s a good thing, I think. Let me explain.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort Review

This past February I had the opportunity to stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge for the second time. That first time was impressive.

Big Changes: Wine and Dine Half Marathon Challenge for 2016

Chef Mickey has some news for you! We thought something looked a little fishy about the Wine and Dine Half Marathon last week.  After talking about it on social media some semi-confirmations came through from unofficial sources.  It was pretty exciting to think of the possibilities, but we knew we had to wait until today […]

The Princess Men | 2016 Princess Half Marathon

This post may up my stalker status, but… well, I’m writing it anyway.  And by stalker I mean I’m the person who whips out her iPhone when she sees a good story running by and needs to capture it #ForTheBlog. This time, the subject of my stalking was the Princess Men.  You know who I’m […]

2016 Walt Disney World Marathon Race Recap Part 1

I initially made this one long blog post, but it ended up around 300% longer than my typical posts, so I went ahead and cut it up.  There were more thoughts and moments in 26.2 miles going on than I ever thought possible. And considering I took about 300% more time doing this course than […]
