We are hours away from heading to Walt Disney World for our first Wine And Dine race weekend and the inaugural #LumiereChallenge! :)
For those that don't know, the Wine and Dine weekend takes place in Walt Disney World from November 4-6, 2016! I will be taking part in all three races: 5k on Friday, 10k on Saturday and Half Marathon on Sunday. My wife will be kicking butt in Mickey's Holiday 5k!
I can't wait to walk away from the weekend with four of these amazing medals. If only I could pass off as young enough for the Kids Race. ;)
Now I don't just take these trips for the medals (shocking I know), the wife and I will be hitting up the parks and trying to soak up as much happy in six days. YES! We are going to be there for six days and I cannot wait.
In addition to racing and parks, I'm wicked excited to see as many friends as possible. So you KNOW a meetup would form! Justin from Always Running Forward and I will be hosting the #WeRunSocial meetup on Saturday, November 5 at 1pm ET at the Carousel in Disney Springs.
We will get together, meet some online friends in real life for once AND pass on some sweet high-fives.
So please feel free to join us, tell your friends and RSVP here on Facebook to add it to your calendar! :)
We look forward to seeing you then!!
Now thanks to the interwebs I was able to check out the course maps ahead of time.
My favorite parts of Disney races are the character stops, medals, and costumes!! One can run a Disney race without wearing a costume, but I thoroughly enjoy dressing up!
Any ideas? There are pieces of all 3 of my costumes in the pic!
But I cannot wait to make this trip happen. I am looking forward to every minute of it.
Are you going to be at the inaugural #LumiereChallenge weekend?
