Finishing The Most Magical Run on Earth!

Posted by: Ursula Zamora on Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Congratulations to our colleagues Deb and Jason who ran in the Walt Disney World Half Marathon on Saturday January 12!

The 13.1 mile course took them through some of the most popular areas of the Disney World Theme parks...with lots of Disney fun along the way!

It was a warn sunny weekend in Orlando, a bit warmer than usual at this time of the season.  While wonderful for those seeking refuge from the cold and snow, it did catch some runners by surprise.  Castmates and veteran Disney runners mentioned that due to the heat that the full marathon did see record numbers of runners unable to finish due to heat related issues.

Deb and Jason ran the half marathon (along with Deb's son) and completed the race in under 3 hours.  Deb mentioned on Monday that she began training 6 months ago to be race ready. The marathon course can find lots of fun characters-Disney castmates and non-in great costumes and get ups along the way.  A few people even mentioned that in the half marathon that they saw a fireman running in full gear in honor of the fallen first responders from West Webster, NY who lost their lives in a call on Christmas Eve morning.

Congratulations again to Deb and Jason for finishing their race and sharing their photos with us!
