Inspired by my friend (and digiscrapping crack dealer) Arlette, I thought I'd mention the fabulous folks at runDISNEY.
Now, I'm what the natives might call a "couch potato". I don't like running. I never have. I likely never will. My former cheerleading coach used to make me run steps and laps when I sassed her.
At any rate, I'm just not a fan of running. Maybe I'm lazy, maybe I'm old, or maybe I just have a raging case of cheerleading PTSD. It's no matter ... I know many of my friends ARE though, hence my desire to share the love with y'all.
Did you know that Disney sponsors several race events each year? From the fun and funky "Princess Half Marathon" (where most of the participants wear shiny things and tutus ... and not just the girls) to the full-blown Disney Marathon ... there's a little something for everyone. And the best part? The race courses wind through the iconic parks of Walt Disney World! Can you imagine running with the wind, through an empty Magic Kingdom? What about running through a closed Animal Kingdom? I think that would be fun.
And each person that completes the race received a medal ... lovingly referred to as "Disney Bling" by the TGM peeps. I've seen some of these medals, and they're GORGEOUS.
But, although I'm a self-described lover of shiny things ... I'm just not sure that it's enough to make me go back to running. After all - I'm a grown adult now and can be just as sassy as I please.
