RUNNING WHILE ON VACATION

Running on vacation is possible with some planning. Since starting my run streak I have had to make sure I can find a place to run no matter where I am. That is not always easy. I have had to wait in line for a treadmill and sometimes use treadmills that weren’t in the best shape. I prefer to run outside, but sometimes that is not a safe option. 

  
On our recent trip to Disney World I ran everyday. I ran in the evening, early morning, and even super early morning one day. ( we arrived back at the resort from a day in the parks @ 12:50 AM, so I went for a run since it was technically the next day!) I enjoyed the scenery on my runs and welcomed the change. It was fun to stop and take in my surroundings.  My family even joined me once or twice.

Do you run while on vacation?

Do you run on a treadmill or venture out?

THE RACE THAT STARTED IT ALL!

The runDisney Wine and Dine Half Marathon weekend went on sale today. Within 35 minutes both the half marathon and the 5k were sold out!



Thanks to the luck of the Irish, my husband and I were able to sign up. I did panic when registration first opened as I had been on my computer prior to noon and was ready to enter my info and then the runDisney site FROZE!  I had to get to class, so thankfully my husband was able to get us both registered. 

This race holds special meaning to both of us as this was the first half marathon we ran. Back in 2012, I would run occasionally, but never more than 3-4 miles. I really wanted to go back to Disney World and I saw they had a half marathon. I told my husband if I were to run a half marathon anywhere it would be Disney. He signed me up as a Mother’s Day gift and three years later we are still running Disney!

Disneyland Half marathon

Today was the day to register for the Disneyland Half Marathon! The weekends events include a 5k, 10k, and a half marathon. If you want to really challenge yourself, you can sign up for the Dumbo Double Dare Challenge which involves running the 10k on Saturday and the half marathon on Sunday.

I would have loved to sign up for any/all of the races, but it just wasn’t in the cards for me this year. 😦

I did enjoy living vicariously through everyone that was signing up and following along on social media. The Dumbo Double Dare sold out in about 35 minutes! As of this posting, the half marathon is the only race with availability.

As I got dressed this morning, I subconsciously put on my Disneyland shirt (my husband brought it back from the Star Wars race weekend) and my Goofy Challenge shirt. I also realized I wore my runDisney shirt on my run today. My brain must have really wanted to sign up for this race.

Well, hopefully 2016 will be the year that I get to run in Disneyland and earn my Coast to Coast. Unless there is a Fairy Godmother out there who would like to sponsor me!!! Any takers?
