This is a follow-up to the recap I posted recently about the #OnTheRoadToDisneyParks Atlanta runDisney event. It was important to me that the following two paragraphs be included in my post and it is just as important now that I write this follow-up.
“As I have said many times, I am not a runner but I am a huge fan of runDisney and the way they do events. My daughter and many of my friends are runners – great runners – so I have attended many runDisney events as a chEARleader. When the information for this event arrived I thought to myself – well, my daughter can run marathons, my friends can run miles and miles – this is only 2 miles through Atlanta – I can do this! Guess what?? 2 miles is a long time when you are NOT A RUNNER! Another life lesson learned!
So, as usual Disney has done it again! In Atlanta they announced the #WhyIRunDisney campaign coming next year where you will be able to share your runDisney stories via video about why you runDisney. What a great campaign! What a great name for a new campaign! For me, it is a “no-brainer!” I will runDisney because of Lucy, because of the runDisney community that read my post and made it so easy and possible for me to find her and thank her for her inspiration. I will runDisney for the friendships, the support, the caring nature and non-competitive attitudes that shines through. I will runDisney because everybody that runs Disney is also a chEARleader that helps, guides and encourages you every step of the way. I WILL runDISNEY! All of the above is of course made better by the fact that Disney really knows how to put on a great event and each runDisney race is a great event! Note: I am now registered to run the Cinderella Royal Family 5K during Princess Half Marathon Weekend. Let the training begin!
