New runDisney plans!

Hey Mousers!

In the last post (here), I had been debating on wether or not to re-register for the Disneyland Half Marathon.  As well as how cool it would be to try the new challenge: The Dumbo Double Dare.


The universe apparently had other plans for me because on the day registration opened, while I was at work, the Dumbo Double Dare challenge completely filled up in AN HOUR! So... that plan was pretty much toast.
Then I debated... do I want to run just the Disneyland Half? or save for the Tinkerbell Half?  Either way I was talking about quite a bit of money and I need to be absolutely sure.  I went to bed that night thinking of my options, went to work the next morning, came home at lunch..... and the entire race was SOLD OUT.
Yup! This race made history last year by selling out in a little over a month.  This year? 26 hours!


As much as I'd love to be part of the new challenge, I have a feeling this year's Disneyland Half Marathon weekend is going to be a mad house.  It will be interesting to watch the events as they unfold via the interwebs :)

So now what?  I said I had new runDisney plans, didn't I?

Heck Yes, I do!!

After some conversations with my running partner, aka my cousin (Hi Stephanie!), we couldn't decide on a single race to do.....

So we're doing 3!!!

We're going to be running the Coast to Coast Challenge in 2014 as well as the Dumbo Dare!

I'm so excited as this means my 2nd trip to Walt Disney World is in the works!! My first visit was in 2005 with my sister and it was so much fun.  A trip I'll never forget.

RunDisney will always have a special place in my heart because it was my motivation to get me running the first place.  I've become a much healthier person because of it and I'll be forever grateful.

Who else is planning on any Disney races next year??
