I know this is not news to anyone, but Disney is a marketing genius.
So, when I ran the Disney World Marathon in January, all over the expo were t-shirts and medals showing Disney’s Coast to Coast Challenge. Basically, all you have to do is run a marathon or half marathon in both Disney parks in the same year and you automatically get an “extra” medal to commemorate this great accomplishment.
So immediately, before I even ran the marathon, my mind was churning. I knew I wanted that Coast to Coast medal. So after we got home I started looking at races at Disney Land. They don’t have a full marathon – shew – don’t have to go there again, but they do have a half in September. My sister lives in LA, so I thought, wow how awesome would that be? I could go visit my sister, run the half marathon, and get my medal(s) it’s a win-win-win!!
So I e-mailed my sister and asked about the timing of the visit, and added – would you want to run with me??? And she said “YES”! She has done a few half marathons before, but not in awhile. So now it’s like a win-win-win-win situation! I am super excited to run a race with my sister – something I’ve never done before.
