Double Dare Me and 28 Miles to Go!

I am a huge fan of Disney races! I have ran the Disneyland Half Marathon for the past three years and it has become my annual PR race so naturally I love it! I also love Disney medals since they are so fancy and beautiful! Today I saw a post on Facebook from Run Disney which mentioned a new challenge for 2013 known as the the Dumbo Double Dare. In 2013 they are adding a 10K, known as the Disneyland 10K, as well as a new challenge to run 19.3 miles in two days. Participants who take on the challenge would run the Disneyland 10K on Saturday followed by the Disneyland Half Marathon on Sunday and will be awarded the all-new Dumbo Double Dare medal in addition to the Half Marathon and 10K finisher medals. This is very tempting to me but I am not sure if I will sign up for it since the cost is $280.00! Disney races come with a hefty price but I have until January 22nd to think about it which is when registration opens.
In other news, I am 28 miles away from reaching my goal of 1000 miles for 2012! I have two more runs scheduled for 2012 and one of them is a 20 miler! I haven't ran 2o miles in quite some time so I am nervous and excited all at the same time. The weather has been perfect so I am looking forward to tackling 20 miles in cool and crisp temperatures!


Tomorrow is going to be a fun day! We are finally heading to Disneyland!

  1. Congrats on reaching your goal for the 1,000 miles! The Disney thing would be tempting to me too, but yeah, $280 is hefty.....Enjoy Disneyland! I've been wanting to go since I saw the outskirts last summer.

    1. I really want to do this since it is the inaugural but I guess I will have to see if my finances allow for it. You have to do at least one Disney race since they are a lot of fun and well organized.

  2. SO close to your goal and soon it will be done! I can't see paying that much for a race, but if I lived closer to it I might, it does sound really fun!

    1. I love Disney races but not the high prices! I am sure you would give in and run at least one Disney race if you were closer!
