I can’t express how magical this morning was for me to see so many of my passions in life collide together at once. As a former “serious” competitive runner in high school and college and a lover of all things Disney, the chance to run in a Disney Park before it opened was beyond cool and exciting. Simply thrilling! I even teared up with my good friend Renee as we walked in to Epcot and I realized how all that I loved in life was just coming together and happening at once. I can’t wait to run the 1/2 Marathon on Sunday!
I’m here to race the Princess Half Marathon on Sunday and today I attended a Social Media “Tweet Up” about 100 women and Run Disney staff for breakfast and a special morning run with Jeff Galloway and Suzy Favor Hamilton (3 time Olympian).
Unbelievable. As a teenager, Suzy Favor was basically a running idol and legend so getting a chance to meet her and run 2 miles with her through Epcot was crazy. She was spunky, inspiring, and I loved hearing more about her personal story and struggles. I especially love that she has finally found happiness through running now that she only does it for FUN. She’s also on a mission with Lady Foot Locker to create a giant running movement to inspire women to be more confident, to connect, and to run races across the country. I love the idea and Suzy was magnetic and inspiring.
RunDisney gave us all tiaras at breakfast too! Beautiful!
