Dumbo Double Dare Runner Spotlight #1 - Jen

Guess what, guys?! It’s officially the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend Week!! Did you get that? Yeah…well, it is! I could not be more excited!!

In an effort to keep the excitement up all week, I’m bringing to you a Spotlight on a new Disneyland Half Marathon/Dumbo Double Dare Runner each day! At the bottom of their spotlight, you will find information on how to follow along with their adventures throughout the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend. Can’t make it for the race? Here’s your perfect opportunity to follow along! :0)

Now, for the first Spotlight, Jen!


Tell us a little bit about you....

I was born and raised in Georgia and have been here all 31 years of my life.  I was always active growing up and, unfortunately, slacked off toward the end of college.  I began long distance running last March after my friend suggested that we run the Disney Princess half marathon.  At first I laughed it off, but as I read more about it from others, I got very excited and decided this would be a great goal to work towards as well as to get back into the groove of working out.  After almost a year of training, the time finally came for our magical trip to Disney World.  This was my first half marathon and will always hold a special place in my heart.  I ran my second half marathon the next month and have three more scheduled for this year.

Which Disneyland race are you running?

I will be running in the inaugural Dumbo Double Dare (along with Karen!)  This will also be my first trip to Disneyland and I'm really looking forward to experiencing where it all started.

Is this your first runDisney experience? If yes, tell us what you are most looking forward to. If not, tell us about your favorite runDisney moment.

Dumbo Double Dare will be my second runDisney experience.  My favorite moment from the Princess half marathon was running with some amazing running friends, and running through Cinderella's castle was a very unique experience that I will never forget.
