A Magical Day

If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile you know that I participated in runDisney’s 2013 Inaugural Dumbo Double Dare.


I wasn’t planning on running at Disneyland again until 2017 for the 5th anniversary of the Dumbo Double Dare as well as the Disneyland 10k, but a couple of things fell in place, the stars aligned, and now…

I am all signed up run the 10th anniversary of the Disneyland half marathon!!! I’ll just be running the half and I am 100% okay with that.  I have some amazing roommates/running friends that I’ll be staying with and we are going to have a fantastic girls weekend!  We’ll kick off the weekend with a trip to the expo and later that night head to Disneyland for a 10th anniversary party hosted by runDisney!  Friday and Saturday we’ll be playing in the parks and hanging out (I’ll be cheering for the 10k), and Sunday we’ll run the half and celebrate with one last trip into the parks before heading home.  It will be a whirlwind trip but a terrific one.

Another thing that makes this trip even more epic is that this year is the 60th anniversary of Disneyland!

The castle will be decked out in jewels, they have a special parade at Disneyland as well as a new “World of Color” show at Disney’s California Adventure, and so much more!

I am so incredibly excited and am already starting to plan the weekend with my friends.  Hmm…now I need an idea for a costume!

Will you be running any races during the Disneyland half weekend?  Hope to see you there!

Until next time,
