Back from the WDW Marathon!

We're back from the WDW Marathon!

We've done a few half-marathons there and decided we needed to try a full, and we're so glad we did! All the training we did paid off. Not only was it a great run, but it was so much fun! It helped that the weather was fantastic. We got lots of pics with characters along the course - one of my favorite things to do at Disney. There are a lot of characters out you don't usually see at the parks, which is cool. We couldn't stop for pics with every one, of course - didn't want to mess with our pace or get stiff - but we had a couple we were on the lookout for, namely Louie from Princess and the Frog and Goofy's son, Max. They were both on the course and we totally got pics with them! We also got a pic at the twenty-six mile mark! LOL! Oh, and we got cool Mickey medals for finishing!

And we went to the parks, too!  Where we got pics with more characters!

Can't wait to do it again! And maybe, after we get a few marathons under our belt, we'll go crazy and do the Goofy Challenge, where you run the hal on Saturday, then the full on Sunday!

Congratulations, that is very impressive!!! I ran the Halloween 5k in October. I would love to try the half marathon but I am not quite ready yet. Hopefully next year. It is so much fun to see the Disney characters while running.

Paige Tyler said...

Jennifer - Thanks so much! And yes, it's very fun to see the characters! Great to hear you've done a 5K! We started with lots of 5K's then moved to 10K's, then half's, and now full's!

What a wonderful accomplishment! Good discipline training for your mind as well as your body. And fun with the Disney characters to put a smile on your face.

Paige Tyler said...

Jina - It totally is! They also have cool signs up along the course, things like "Chuck Norris Never Ran a Marathon!" LOL! Plus, there are people cheering on the sidelines! It's fantastic!

Good for you, Paige! Next time you're in Orlando, give me and Jax a heads up!

Congratulations! That's incredible. I have a lot of friends who run. It's takes so much discipline!

Callie Croix said...

What an amazing thing to accomplish! I'm not a runner, so I'm even more in awe. Plus my family and I are Disney freaks, which makes me jealous that you got to spend time at the parks. They're such magical places.

Paige Tyler said...

Casey - Thanks! Yeah, it does, but it's so much fun!

Callie - We're totally Disney freaks, too! LOL! The run there is definitely magical!
