In just one week, the doors of the expo will open to kick off the 2015 Disneyland Half Marathon. ?This year is the 10th anniversary of the race weekend, hosted by Cigna.
It’s one of my favorite race weekends on the runDisney calendar and I didn’t want to miss it- even if it meant training in the hot Arizona summer. I won’t lie: it’s been tough. Running on the surface of the sun is hard, yo!
The payoff is just around the corner though: ?Disneyland is decked out for the 60th birthday, the race is celebrating the 10th year, and I’ll be hanging out with all my running friends in the Happiest Place on Earth.
Oh, and then there are these babies!
That’s what I call a payoff.
I’m thrilled to be heading back to this race for my 3rd year.
To plus the experience, my friends at?Cigna invited me to attend their blogger/social media meet-up at the Napa Rose Restaurant on Friday morning.
We’re grabbing “backstage passes” and visiting the kitchen for a session on healthy cooking. ?Some of your favorite runDisney bloggers will be there making sure you don’t miss out on the information.
Cigna hosts these events to help celebrate our choices for a healthy lifestyle & accomplishments (like meeting that goal of finishing your first or 50th race!). ?They’ve got some tips you can use to train for your next race:
I think number 7 is my favorite. 😉
Some of you have the Walt Disney World Marathon lurking around the corner in January, right? ?Cigna is hosting that race weekend too.
Thanks, Cigna, for hosting all of us at the heart of the magic!
