The excitement and my runner’s high from running the Disney World Half Marathon last month is still going strong. Since crossing the finish line of my first half marathon, I’ve been excitedly looking at possible races, both to run in 2014 as well as to add to my race bucket list. I’m hopeful that this high will continue going strong in the coming weeks and months as I train and run even more races.
There were so many great memories that I made during Marathon Weekend. With runDisney’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend kicking off tomorrow morning, I thought it would be fun to look back on some of my most magical moments from our trip to Disney. My own memories serve to remind me of just how magical any runner’s experience can be at Disney. To those running during Princess Weekend, I hope your race experience is just as magical as mine was!
Some of the best moments from last month’s trip to Disney include:
Meeting many fellow bloggers and members of Team #runDisney
Realizing that I have a collector’s item due to the misspelling of “inaugural” on the 10k bibs
Running my first half marathon with Preston by my side
Crossing the finish line of my first half marathon holding my husband and best friend’s hand
Celebrating my accomplishment with Mom and Dad
Being retweeted by runDisney
Cheering Preston on as he completed the inaugural Dopey Challenge
Celebrating our accomplishments with all of the Disney characters at the parks
If all of my accomplishments don’t show you just how memorable of an experience runDisney races are, be sure to check out the Team #runDisney Marathon Weekend recap video. Special thanks to team member Marc Acosta for putting the video together. Each time I watch it, I can’t help but smile as I think back on everything we experienced during our week at Disney World. Be sure to watch out for Preston and I during the video – we make several appearances!
