runDisney & Friends

Over the years, I’ve participated in many runDisney events…which means I’ve had the opportunity to meet a lot of you in person! No matter which race we are running (even non-runDisney related ones), it’s our love for Disney that brings us together. I’m sure we all (well, bloggers anyway) have people like this in our lives and I want to introduce you to a few of mine!

Jenn 1

This is Jenn. The morning this photo was taken was from the 2011 Half Marathon - we were both running the Full Marathon that year, but went out to cheer for friends who were running the Half. We’ve run into each other several times since – my husband even made it into one of her race photos from Goofy’s Challenge without even realizing it! Small World, huh? :0) (Don’t even ask about the hat – it was freezing that morning and I woke up with minutes to spare – aka I woke up and was out the door in less than 5 minutes. Mirror, Karen…always check the mirror first.)

Heather (2)

Heather and I have been friends for a while now – but again, it was our love for Disney that brought us together. Since that time, we’ve had countless adventures in races, at the parks, and throughout our home state of Louisiana.

Megan

Megan and I met during the Princess Half Marathon Weekend of 2012 (and have bumped into each other several times since). Can’t wait to see this girl again!!

Lisa

This is Lisa – we planned to meet up prior to the Disneyland Half Marathon Expo and in turn, we endured that craziness together (I think we deserve a medal for that one)!

Pam & Christine

Pam & Christine are always constant sources of encouragement and support! Love these two!!

Jen

Jen and I officially finally met at the Disneyland Half Marathon Expo and have been Wine & Dine planning ever since! Can’t wait for November!!

Mindy

This is Mindy – we met for the first time at a Rock n Roll New Orleans race a few years ago and have run into each other a few times since!

Nicole

Last but not least…my newest marathon buddy, Nicole. We had a wonderful time running Rock n Roll New Orleans together and I can’t wait to see her again! :0)

This list is not complete by any means. I’ve enjoyed meeting and spending time with each and every one of these ladies (along with many others who have stopped to say hi) and I look forward to meeting even more friends in the future!

As a disclaimer, I have to add…internet safety is nothing to play around with so always use caution when planning a meeting with someone. Isn’t it silly I have to say that? Creeps are everywhere, y’all. Be careful.

Now that you know I won’t catfish you, will I see you at Wine & Dine? :P Seriously, I would love to meet you! If you see me, stop and say hi, I love making new friends!

  1. Haha, I love your disclaimer at the end of the post! I SO wish I was brave enough to come say Hi to you during the PHM blogger meet up. ( My insecure side of me still wasn't sure if it was you..haha). Will you be at PHM in 2015? ~M

    1. Bummer..I know how you feel! I get nervous about saying hi to new people, especially if I have doubt it's not the person I thought it was! (That happened to me in DTD once and the lady was super rude!)
      I'm hoping to run Princess 2015, we will see! I absolutely love that race!!

  3. One of my goals is to do a runDisney race! Do you have a recommendation for one to choose?!

    1. Depends what you're looking for! :0) If you're into girly things, the Princess Half Marathon is perfect. If you like nighttime racing the Wine & Dine Half or Tower of Terror 10 miler are good ones to choose. There's also Star Wars/Avengers races or a marathon weekend in January that doesn't have a specific theme but is still a ton of fun. Oh yes, there's also a Tinkerbell race in there, too! I'd say check out the runDisney website and see which race interests you, then go from there! www.rundisney.com

  5. No Wine&Dine, but I tend to hit up the Anaheim expos even if I'm not running the associated race. If you're out here, let me know!

  6. No wine and dine for us this year since we are both running fall marathons. We will also be going to WDW for Tower of Terror in early October!
