Disneyworld Wine and Dine Half Marathon

I am back home from a completely exhausting and thrilling race weekend. I had a great time with some great friends over the weekend as well.

I'll be posting a real race report in a few days after I can really recover and organize my thoughts and photos along the way. The race was not perfect, but it was still a fabulous event and I think it has a lot of potential once Disney can make a few adjustments for next year.

Based on the way I ran out the first 2 miles and the last 2 miles, I am convinced that I could have made this a PR time race. Instead, I spent the intervening miles having great conversation with other runners, stopping for many photo opportunities, and concentrating on just having a fabulous race event. This was easily my slowest official half marathon run time (and I don't even know what it was!), but it was also the most memorable and enjoyable--and that was what mattered for this event.

Yeah - it was a super busy weekend and I'm still recovering :)!

You might want to take your own box of Splenda with you next time and just start walking around to all the tables and refilling the containers :)!
