This past weekend I ran in Disney’s Dumbo Double Dare. The race consists of a 10k on Saturday followed by a half marathon on Sunday. They are intense. For running the two races you receive an extra medal, the Dumbo Double dare medal.
The 10k started bright and dark. I was in my corral before 5 am. The race starts at 5:30 am. The theme of the race was Villians. Of course Cruel and Maleficent stopped by to kick off the race. I dressed up as Snow White rather than a Villian.
Once the race began you got to run through part of the streets of Anehiem, California Adventure, Disneyland, Downtown Disney, and finishing by Disneyland hotel.
Finishing was the best part and I really liked the medal. It was a replica of the Magic Mirror.
It was a great race, but I had to rest up for the half the next day.
The half marathon
Not only was Disneyland celebrating their 60th but the Disneyland half was celebrating their 10th anniversary.
I was a feeling good after the 10k so I felt confident running the half. I dressed as Minnie Mouse for the half and taped up my knees. I have previous knee injuries so I find that KT tape helps a girl with two bad knees continue running all these races.
I didn’t stop for pictures on the race. I did take this at mile 5. It is wonderful running in Disneyland. The whole city of Anaheim is there to support all the runners. From marching bands, to different culture organizations everyone is cheering you on. It’s amazing.
Well that’s another race in the books. So happy I had my friends and my mom to cheer me on. Thanks to all the people that volunteered, strangers that passed out wet sponges, all the organizations and classic car owners that were out cheering us on. No race compares to RunDisney. I’ve been running them for several years and I plan on running them for as long as I live. I hope this inspires you to run or volunteer for a race. Thanks for reading. Have a magical day.
