Through Heather's Looking Glass Fave RunDisney Moments

Posted Aug 29 2013 7:30am
Today I am flying to the original "Happiest Place on Earth" for the Disneyland Half Marathon and the first ever Dumbo Double Dare.  For those of you who are new to the blog, I am one of the race announcers for the RunDisney series .  I'm so happy to have Heather (a Fitfluential ambassador and RunDisney expert) guest posting today and sharing her favorite RunDisney moments.  Heather (far left) and I at the summer media festival.

Hi! I am Heather from Through Heather’s Looking Glass , blogger and Disney travel agent, guest posting today for Carissa about my favorite runDisney race moments, enjoy!

I started running runDisney back in 2010. The half marathon in January was my very first half, which is why runDisney holds such a special place in my heart. I have run races during many runDisney race weekends, and have many more on my calendar. Here is a peek at some of my favorite runDisney moments over the past few years. Enjoy!

1.) Getting my first runDisney medal: it was January 2010, and it was sleeting. I was NOT prepared and was nervous enough without having proper cold gear. We braved the weather and finished our first half marathon ever. Getting that medal changed my life. Who knew it would start an obsession?
2.) Passing “inspiration curve” during my first full marathon: If you read my running story , you will see that the curve outside of Hollywood Studios holds a special place in my heart. Passing it during my first full was a mix of emotions. I was smiling ear to ear but balling at the same time. I’m sure I scared some spectators. 179339_554418274851_68000952_31807717_2447447_n_thumb
 3.) Going Goofy with my husband: In January of 2013, I did something I never thought possible: finished Goofy’s race and a half challenge. I had a lot of naysayers tell me I couldn’t do it (blog trolls, take THAT!) but I did, and with a marathon PR to boot! I was one happy girl.
4.) The Tangled 5k during Princess 2012: This race gets my vote for the pure FUN of it. I ran with several of my blog buddies, and we had an absolute blast goofing off, taking character photos, and enjoying the race. Smiles all around! IMG_7459

5.) Running through the stadium at the Disneyland half marathon: Last year at the Disneyland half , I was NOT expecting a stadium full of cheering fans that greeted us. It was such an adrenaline rush and so kind of all the supporters, girl and boy scout troops, and other folks who screamed my name as I ran around the field. Wow!

 So there you have it, my top 5 favorite runDisney moments. I can’t wait to make more memories this weekend at Dumbo Double Dare!
