2013 Disneyland Half Marathon Event Updates

Have you heard? The Race Program was posted for the 2013 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend – and with that, I thought I’d share some of the big details everyone has been waiting for: course maps!

Here’s the Half Marathon course:

..and here’s what I know I have been waiting for: the 10K (and 5K) course!

As many had guessed (and sleuthed) the 10K course will primarily run around the parks and park property, which will definitely make for some magical photo ops! I know that I am beyond excited to run through Cars Land again, and any chance I can go on a run and see a castle is a good race in my book!

There are a lot more great pieces of info to know in the official race program, so I’d definitely recommend giving it a download if you’re hungry for some runDisney excitement! I always love to give the program a few reads, and then keep a commemorative copy once I arrive at the event 🙂

What are you most looking forward to at 2013 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend?




A little bit of this, a little bit of that…

It’s been a while since my last update…in fact, I’ve been contemplating the future of this blog, considering making it a section of my primary blog, Shiawase Life, or re-branding…etc…but then, this happened:

Yes! Lil’ old Outrunning the Monorail made #69 on the list:

Thank you!

Thank you!

So, yes…thank you, nominator and all readers! I love y’all! And on that note…how about some more runDisney news?

This Fun Run definitely wasn’t on my radar, but I had heard whispers of it the past few days…and I am pretty darn glad that my pal Theresa got in! It sounds like it will be run similar to the meetups (see my posts on them here, here and here) with like-parameters (12-minute pace requirement, early meet time, etc) so I am excited to hear how it goes!

And…before I go, how about one more exciting announcement??


Yes, it’s true! My pal Morgan and I will be hosting a great cupcake meetup to benefit St Jude Children’s Research Hospital on Friday, August 30 during the Disneyland Half / Dumbo Dare Weekend! Our Facebook Page has all the info HERE – so if you are ready to carbo load with us with some sugary treats, check it out!
