It’s almost time! We leave for Disneyland tomorrow night and right now I’m somewhere between extremely excited and freaking out about everything I need to get done. I’m actually already packed so I’m not really sure what I’m freaking out about.
One all of our Disney vacations we try something new. It’s part of our traditions and helps motivate us to try different things. This trip will of course include lots of new things but one that we are both really excited about is participating in our first runDisney event during the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend.
It wasn’t something that we originally planned to do but after we booked our flights I realized the dates matched up. Then I read the description of the 5K.
Get ready to race through the Disneyland® Resort where you’ll be greeted by Alice and the Mad Hatter on your wacky journey though Wonderland. The Disneyland® Family Fun Run 5K kicks off Saturday morning as you race a 5K course throughout the Disneyland® Resort.
I adore Alice so the medal being offered was motivation enough to sign up.
I’m also excited to meet up with a few runDisney participants during the weekend. My friend Didi from DISTherapy has been such a supporter of all my endeavors and I am really looking forward to seeing her again and finally getting a photo together! We are also going to be attending the Running at Disney meet so I can say hi to the fabulous Sarah.
And I’ve already written about how I like to plan my outfits so your know I have something planned for the 5K. I kept going back and forth trying to decide if I wanted to wear a costume or not. I finally decided just to go with comfort and I ordered a t-shirt from Raw Threads. My friend Mary at Capturing Magical Memories recommended them and they have several cute Disney inspired designs. I decided to go with the Cheshire Cat tee since it fit in with the theme. I also have a cute sparkly head band to wear.
Like I said, we are really excited to be participating in our first runDisney event. If everything goes smoothly I’m looking forward to participating in one at Walt Disney World. I’ll be posting updates during our trip via instagram, Facebook, and twitter if you want to follow along!
