2015 Disneyland Half Marathon and Dumbo Double Dare Training

Good morning, everyone!

Fresh off the heels of my own second 50K, and following vicariously the goings on of runners participating in the Inaugural Star Wars Half Marathon weekend this weekend, I am feeling PUMPED about running and racing! I’ve been revisiting training plans, reviewing past race recaps, and just smiling ear to ear, thinking about the memories, the triumphs, and the people that make each race weekend special.

Follow your dreams!

With that welling energy and enthusiasm, I am proud to announce the launch of training plans and packages for the 2015 Disneyland Half Marathon and Dumbo Double Dare! I’ve run the Disneyland Half twice (the first time in 2011, as the second part of my first Coast to Coast Challenge; second was with the Inaugural Dumbo Dare in 2013) and I can honestly say that this is my FAVORITE half marathon. Not just favorite runDisney half, mind you, but, of the 17 halves I’ve run, my FAVORITE, all around.

Here are the details of these specific plans:

  • Capacity is limited to 5 Dumbo Double Dare runners and 5 Half Marathon runners (these numbers can be flip-flopped based on demand – basically, I am taking on 10 runners.
  • Each package includes a runner survey, 30-minute consultation, a personalized training plan, access to a private FB group specifically for Disneyland Half and Dumbo Double Dare runners, unlimited email/text access for coaching/advice, plus a race-day strategy session.
  • These packages are fully adjustable to your schedule, your ability and your goals.

Also new this year: a “FASTPASS” option for runners who need guidance in the form of a training plan, but don’t want/need extra support.

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have in the comments, or email me at khiguchi at gmail dot com.

* General registration for the 2015 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend opens on rundisney.com on February 10. Early registration (DVC, AP) launches January 27th. Outrunning the Monorail training plans and packages will be available for purchase while spots last.

2015 & 2016 runDisney Training Plan Packages COMING!

WOW.

It’s been way too long since I last updated this blog, but here’s a quick update on what’s happened since my last Outrunning the Monorail update:

  • Created another video submission to Disney Parks Moms Panel
  • Cheered on more friends to their inductions to the panel 🙂
  • Coached an incredible first group of Outrunning the Monorail runners through the fall
  • Ran the 2014 Wine and Dine Half Marathon and 2015 Goofy Challenge
  • Proudly saw 14 runners accomplish running goals they didn’t imagine they could before!

Now, it wasn’t easy, and it wasn’t perfect, but in these past three months, I’ve learned a lot, and I can’t wait to KEEP MOVING FORWARD into the new year, with running and Disney, so I am very excited to announce that starting JANUARY 18th, new training program packages will be dropping!

Look for more details and information soon!
