This was it. This was my day. My 40th birthday spent doing a half marathon in Disneyland.
2017 Race Recap – Disneyland 10K
The races for this RunDisney weekend started at the before-the-sun hour of 5am. Oy! This meant every day I got up between 3:00 and 3:30. Oy, oy, oy! They’re worth it. I’m sure I’ll do it again. The 10K theme was Monsters, Inc – which I liked better than The Incredibles theme for the 5K.
2017 Race Recap – Disneyland 5K
When I found out the Disneyland Half Marathon was being held the day of my 40th birthday, I knew I must go. And go, I did. Thankfully, I have fabulous friends who didn’t mind going to Disneyland.
Disney Gallery Wall
It’s no secret that I love Disney. Over the years I have acquired a few fun items. I never had a good place to display them. But we are now done home schooling, and that opened up a wall that was once covered in learning material. The wall was a blank canvas that I chose to decorate in all things Disney.
Disney Pin and Photo Display
Last May I went to Disneyland to run the Tinker Bell Half Marathon. I went with a couple girlfriends and no children. Such a weird, yet wonderful, experience. My one friend wanted to try pin collecting, so we all jumped on that band wagon. I blame this new obsession on her. I love everything about it… well, except the price tag. Those pins are not
DIY Hand Painted Laughter Wood Sign
I needed one last item to add to a wall dedicated to all things Disney. This hand painted laughter sign fit perfectly. The word was inspired by this quote: “Laughter is timeless.

2016 Race Recap – Star Wars Half Marathon
Doh! The big day. A Disney Half Marathon. And, not only that is was the second race of the Rebel Challenge. The Star Wars 10K + Star Wars Half Marathon = Star Wars Rebel Challenge. 2 races in 2 days. 3 medals. I woke up at the should-still-be-sleeping time of 3:30am. I didn’t do much for costumes. But, I did decide to wear orange. I
2016 Race Recap – Star Wars 10K
Saturday was the first race of the Star Wars Rebel Challenge at Disneyland. It was a 10K, which at this point, is my favorite distance. It’s more challenging than a 5K. But not near as challenging as a half marathon. I still feel fairly new to running. I’ve actually not run many 10K’s and the next day would only be my 3rd half marathon. So,
2016 Race Recap – Star Wars 5K
I’ve spent the last few days at the Star Wars Half Marathon weekend in Disneyland. This was my second Run Disney event weekend. They sure know how to put on a good event. That has to be one of the reasons their events are so popular.
