2022 runDisney Bootleg Treasures

Posted

I am too cheap to pay the $200 for the DisneyPhotoPass downloads from the 2022 WDW Marathon Race Weekend. I suppose if I were with my family and we had taken a bunch of pics inside the parks as well as grabbing shots of me running, maybe… maybe… it’d be worth $200. But as it […]

The 2022 WDW Half Marathon – What the Duck?

Posted

Finally, after 25 years running, Daisy Duck has earned her ears and been named co-con-DUCK-tor of the half marathon event. It’s about ducking time. *** A half marathon is a great distance — it’s a tough workout that doesn’t leave you absolutely destroyed like a marathon can.  Unfortunately, coming on Day 3 of 4 waking […]

The 2022 WDW 10K – The Book of Grogu

Posted

Would the real Grogu please stand up? It’s possible I may finally have reached TMG… too much Grogu. Why is that, you ask?  Well, looking back on the photos from today’s race, I feel like instead of the Grogu mask I should have gone with the solid color green one.  With Grogu’s soup-slurping visage on […]

The 2022 WDW 5K – “The Ballad of Bouncer Roo”

Posted

With the ongoing pandemic and its resultant travel advisories/bans, my favorite tour group is once again unable to make it to the runDisney events. I’ve often waxed rhapsodic about them, so this is my tribute to TravellingFit, courtesy of their mascot Skippy’s American cousin, Bouncer Roo. Crikey, Bouncer Roo!  We best be careful!  Who knows […]

Hello, runDisney, my old friend…

Posted

Well, with stats like this… …OF COURSE I should be running a four-day race series at Walt Disney World! It’s been two years since the last in-person Walt Disney World Marathon.  They did have a half marathon last fall… but that was in the halcyon days of vaccinated delta and pre-omicron.  If the crowds at […]

What Kind Of Year Has It Been?

Posted

So… 2021, huh? Not exactly how I imagined it going. The vaccine seemed like a sign of good things to come… and then we had an insurrection and a bunch of militant never-vaxxers. Surges and setbacks on the healthcare front meant we never hit the percentages we needed to break the pandemic definitively. And so […]

Palm Beaches Marathon – 2021 Edition

Posted

Well, that was awful. Hot and humid… and not much shade. A two loop course that proved mentally draining… especially since the majority of runners were doing the half and thereby gone from the second loop. A logistical snafu in clearing the course in the morning meant we started 10-15 minutes late… which meant we […]
