Last year I had all the registration dates circled in the calendar -the Disneyland Half, the WDW Marathon Weekend and the Star Wars Half. While I have AMAZING memories from all three (although the Dopey brain barely remembers WDW), I can’t help but feel a little FOMO while the registration process continues, and races play … More Experiencing that runDisney FOMO

I can’t believe that 2 weeks ago I had completed the WDW Marathon! It’s certainly been crazy since touching down in the US and heading over to Walt Disney World. Firstly, I need to say that place is HUGE! I’ve been over to Disneyland enough but WDW is a whole other experience. Then there’s the … More I am a Marathoner! – WDW Marathon Weekend 2016
So the WDW Marathon Weekend & Star Wars Weekend corrals have been released and social media seems to have blown up with complaints of incorrect seeding in regards to starting position. Personally, I received corral J for Dopey and absolutely stoked to be starting there seeing as I thought I would be back further (and then corral … More Dealing with corral crazy
Less than 70 days until the first day!!! With the medal revel happening overnight my night everything just became real. Yes, the training kilometres are being logged, but the race weekend itself just seemed like a far off thought until now. Now I have the amazing medals to look at – and there’s 6 of the glorious … More The WDW Marathon Weekend Medal Reveal
