Running, Racing, and Disney!

What an exciting couple of days!  My sister and I ran our own half marathon's on Thursday! Each of us completed 13.1 miles in different states and then called to tell eachother. ( which was ironic because it was not planned!)

Friday of course was a rest day for the both of us after completing that much mileage ( although I did a lot of walking to keep my sore legs from getting too tight).

Saturday has been an extremely fun day so far. I got to attend a race ( not as a runner but as a writer) at our local high school. The high school band and choir put on a 5k and 10k race as a fund raiser. They are rainsing money to off set their trip to guess where???? Disney World!  So of course I accepted the challenge to write about this. Disney AND Running, there couldn't have been a better assignment for me! The students will be marching down Main Street of the Magic Kingdom on December 4th for the 10am parade!  The Choir will be singing in the candlelight processional in Epcot the night before.  I'm so excited for these students. For some, it will be their first time experiencing Disney! 

After the 5K and 10K at the school, I was off to our local church to report on yet another race. This time is was a 5k to raise money to stop human trafficing.  It was so great to see so many locals out supporting a good cause and running on such a beautiful fall day!


Has your local school district ever sent students to Disney?


  1. Wow! So many races! :)
    Congratulations on finishing your recent race!
    Here's to more races! :)

    1. I didn't actually run a race, just ran the 13.1 miles ( in preparation for my race). I did however, report on two races! I will have more races in my future though! Thanks for reading.

  2. Congrats on the races :)

    I went to Florida (Disney included) when I was in 8th grade. We did a behind the scenes tour of Disney and it is still one of my most favorite experiences there. I always think about it when on vacation there

    1. Ahh, I bet that was so fun experiencing Disney with your classmates ( and of course doing the behind the scene tours)!
