Depending on what time you read this, we may be on our way to Florida!! Woohoo!!
On Saturday, November 8th, I’ll be running Mickey’s Jingle Jungle 5K.
Since I’m so exited about my first runDisney race, I’ve set up a few streams on Hootsuite to see what others are saying.
If you want to learn more about the races or just live vicariously through other runners, here are my suggestions of who to follow and some fun hashtags:

When I was first approached about attending the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend, my reaction was “Half Marathon?!? Really?”
But there is so much more to the Weekend than just the Half Marathon.
Starting on Friday, Disney hosts a Health & Fitness Expo where you can “check out the newest Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend Merchandise, and get a sneak peek at the latest in apparel and fitness equipment. The Expo features a Speaker Series that includes appearances by celebrity runners and seminars on training, racing, and nutrition.”
Friday night, is the Pre-Race Taste at the Lights, Motors, Action!® Extreme Stunt Show®. “his event is a great way to relax and be entertained before your big race.”
Saturday morning, the running begins with the Mickey’s Jingle Jungle 5K at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. (This is the race I will be running.) “It’s the perfect family adventure and a great warm up to the Half Marathon! You’ll run past amazing sites, scenery, and some exotic animals as you follow the course that winds its way through the park. And there’ll be plenty of extra fun along the way with special Disney entertainment. Beginners, intermediates, and even experienced runners are all invited to join the fun.”
