Disney Virtual Running Series
We have several half marathons coming up this year, but not every week is a big, long run. Sometimes a quick 5K is all you need and In June, July, and August we will be taking some of our training runs on the road and getting some great medals in the process. The Disney Virtual Race Series this yer is MARVEL themed! By running a 5K each month, we get one of the awesome medals you see in the picture, inspired by Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Iron Man. For completing the series, you get a bonus 4th medal that celebrates 80 years of Marvel Comics. It’s a theme we love and a great tribute to Stan Lee. Each month we are going to run the Disney Virtual Race at one of the Disney Parks in Orlando, Florida and bring you some magical food and beverage from the “happiest place on earth.”
2019 RunDisney Wine And Dine Half Marathon Weekend/2-Course Challenge
We are headed back to Disney for the Wine and Dine 2-Course Challenge November 2-3, 2019. This race holds a special place in our hearts since it is the first half marathon we ever completed. The 2-Course Challenge adds a second race, the 10K, making it a fun-filled weekend. There is also a 5K and a kids race option for those of all ability levels and age groups. And of course, once we have accomplished our goal, we will explore Disney Dining and indulge in drink from around the world at the EPCOT World Showcase as part of the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival. So, looking for a reason to come to Disney? Look no further. Click the button to go to the RunDisney website and sign up! We’d love to run this race with you and get together afterward to celebrate our accomplishment WITH YOU! This remains one of our favorite races and if you have to do only one Disney race in Florida, we think this is the one to do.
In December 2019 we return to Atlanta to run the “Double G!” On Saturday December XX we will run Barb’s 5K, a brisk morning run through beautiful Piedmont Park. Afterward, we adjourn to race partner Orpheus Brewing which overlooks the park for a meet-and-greet and beer tasting. On Sunday the XX, we run the Jeff Galloway Half Marathon, a 13.1-mile course that takes runners through some of the most beautiful and historic portions of Atlanta concluding at Piedmont park where Olympian and “America’s Coach”, Jeff Galloway, greets every runner as they come across the finish line. Last year this was a PR race. We’ll see what this year has in store. One thing is for sure, it will be a fun time on the course and around town as we bring you new and delicious local food and beverages to try!
