Walt Disney World Marathon! – Paige Tyler – New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

Walt Disney World Marathon!

You know, sometimes I think hubby and I are crazy. We like to run, which probably seems insane to a lot of people. I mean why run if no one’s even chasing you, right? But once a year we drag a carload of stuff to the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. We have to take a carload full of stuff because we never know what the weather is going to be. Regardless of what they say in the weather report, they’re almost always wrong. So, we bring winter hats, gloves, and rain gear, among other things. Basically something for every occasion. Thankfully we didn’t need any of out cold weather gear this time. Starting temperature for the run was a beautiful sixty degrees. 

We did the half marathon this time, which is 13.1 miles of glorious fun in the parks. There are people cheering, characters waving, and bands playing, not to mention performers on stilts. There’s no better way to while away the miles. We had a great half marathon! 

The best part of the whole thing is that it takes place at Disney World, which means going to the parks, going on rides, and my favorite part, taking pictures with the characters! It makes all the training we do worth it! 🙂
