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.
