runDisney Disneyland Half Marathon Registration

It’s finally time to register for the runDisney Disneyland half marathon! Today, at noon EST, you can sign up at rundisney.com to take part in this amazing weekend. This is one of my favorite races, and the first time I ever visited Disneyland was when I ran it in 2012. I had hoped to be able to come back for 2015, but my money tree hasn’t started producing anything yet. Smile

However I am stoked to let you in on a few details that have been released and get you pumped up for registration day! This particular year is a special one, because it’s the 10th anniversary of the race. As if runDisney medals weren’t cool enough, there will be a special commemorative 10 year one placed around your neck after you cross the finish line.

Also, there will be a special party, see below, taken from the official press release:

“… a special Disneyland Half Marathon Annual party.  This private, ticketed event, held Thursday evening Sept 3, will give guests access to select attractions, Disney entertainment and character meet & greets in Disneyland Park West Side.”

How fun! Oh, you need even more to celebrate? How about the newly-announced 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration? The special party will offer an exclusive viewing of the new “Paint the Night” parade!

This weekend promises to be jam packed with fun from the health and fitness expo, to the kids races, and the 5k, 10k, and half marathon. Also, I DARE you to sign up for the Dumbo Double Dare race challenge!

Coast to Coast Photos

Good morning! I am finally HOME! After two weeks of being all over the place, I got to sleep in my own bed last night! I will be attempting to get my blogging and life back to normal, so if you have emailed, tweeted, etc. to me, I’m not ignoring you just trying to catch up. A couple of things you may have missed yesterday:

runDisney announced the new medals for the Disneyland half marathon weekend, and I am hosting a giveaway for a $100 visa gift card!

I still have a lot to share from the press event, my cruise, and time in Walt Disney World, but I will be spacing those posts out with some other things. I also wanted to post a few runDisney related photos from the press event. I got to chat with Faron Kelley at the trade show, and actually hold the new coast to coast medal. It’s so beautiful in person! I have never run Tink, but would LOVE to have the opportunity this year!

I got to chat with some of the runDisney team including Faron Kelley about the new Princess half weekend changes. A super great guy, it was a fun chat as usual. He has such a passion for runDisney.

Isn’t it pretty? Hopefully it will be mine! Where’s that money tree?

QOTD: Do you prefer the new coast to coast or the old one? What is your favorite runDisney medal?
