WDW Marathon Weekend: What To Pack


Credit: Disney Addicts

It’s beginning to look a lot like WDW Marathon race weekend! I’m definitely feeling the nerves now. The forecast at the moment is predicting a cold week in Walt Disney World, which looks like perfect race conditions for this Boston girl. As we pack, here are my must-haves for your consideration:

WDW Training Update – ONE WEEK AWAY!

 

 

This is it. After months of training and miles, we’re one week away from the 2018 WDW Marathon!!! I am so excited. And nervous. And frustrated. I’ve been suffering with a sinus infection and have been off my feet for over a week. It’s been quite the taper- more like sudden halt! It’s kind of freaking me out. But I know the most important thing is to get well, and fast. It doesn’t help that even if I was feeling well it’s literally zero degrees outside. Hmph!

I shouldn’t complain. I need to find a treadmill and get in some miles just before I leave. I hope no one else is in this position! At least I am not injured, and I am feeling much better.

I can’t wait to get to Walt Disney World and pick up my bib at the expo. I’ll be ready to toe the starting line and run this race. At this point, I am laser focused on finishing, and whatever time I get will be good enough for me!

I hope everyone is getting excited and is thinking about what they will be packing! I know I am. 🙂

 

Happy New Year, everyone and see ya real soon!

Will Run for Disney’s 2017 Reflections and Goals for 2018

 

The end of 2017 is nigh! I can’t believe it’s already that time of year- a time of reflection, gratitude, and bracing oneself for the peak of winter. Instead of “resolutions” I prefer to look at my year’s accomplishments, and goals for the New Year. I was looking at my 2016-2017 goals and accomplishments post and can’t believe how far I’ve come in the past year with my running journey. It’s amazing how one step, one run, one week, one month, adds up to goals I never thought possible.

Disney Parks Blog just unveiled the 2018 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend medals on this #MedalMonday! In celebration of the half marathon’s 10th anniversary, and the “Fairy Tale Challenge” (formerly known as the Glass Slipper Challenge), the medals this year represent the pantheon of Disney Princesses theme unlike ever before- I still believe the “Dream Big, Princess” campaign had a lot to do with the design decision-making! Let’s take a look:
