Walt Disney World is undoubtedly the most Magical Place on Earth. They say a rainy day at Disney beats a sunny day anywhere else so it should come as no surprise that a half marathon at Walt Disney World would be just as thrilling. runDisney…Where Every Mile is Magic.

In February I participated in the runDisney Glass Slipper Challenge which is a 19.3 mile race run over two consecutive days. The Challenge is comprised of the Enchanted 10K (6.2 miles) and the Disney Princess Half Marathon (13.1 miles). This year I ran it with my girlfriend Tamara and we had a blast. Here are a few pictures to prove it.

This shot was inside Epcot’s World Showcase during the Enchanted 10K portion of the run and just as the sun was starting rise.

    I am sitting at work, a little bored, thinking about my Mom and my princess run weekend and perusing random recaps and come upon yours which has a great picture of our backsides. I hope you don’t mind, I am going to reprint it for my Mom and I. We are in the terrace picture, smack dab in the middle in the green May Belle outfits. (there is a lady in a bright green tutu to our left).
    Such a small world!

    I love it! You guys had way too much fun. I’m training for my first half marathon, first runDisney race, and at times I get nervous about the distance killing me. But look at all those smiles! Very encouraging. 🙂
