So it’s no secret I’m a Disney fan. Seven years ago one of the biggest motivators in my even considering a half marathon was a newspaper ad announcing the Inaugural Disneyland Half Marathon. The medal was so shiny:

I was way too scared/lazy/out of shape to even make an attempt at that first event. In fact it was five years before I crossed the finish line and earned a medal. I have a blog of my experience HERE.

But Disney races are like Doritos, you can never be happy with just one. And this year? Disney announced a new challenge:

DUMBO.

Dumbo consists of a 10K (6.2 miles) on Saturday followed by a half marathon (13.1 miles) on Sunday. So you get a medal for each race and a bonus medal for finishing both the same weekend. Three medals in two days. Woohoo!

Today Disney released the Jeff Galloway Dumbo training plan. I haven’t had a chance to look at it yet but it’s linked HERE.

I have a countdown on the top right of this blog. Dumbo is Labor Day. I always said I’d enjoy running right around the time elephants could fly. I never figured Disney into that equation. LOL!

I’m so excited I can barely stand it.

Remember last year’s 5th Anniversary medal?

Here is this year’s:

 

A non-Disney person might think of:

But the Disney D has long been a familiar sight to Disney nuts everywhere. It originated with the Disneyland sign:

 

And still remains in the pins of Disneyland Ambassadors

So of course, I want it. September invasion of Disneyland is already in the works!

 

And if you’re wondering where I found a Disneyland sign photo that says “Hurry up I am getting sleepy” I made it HERE. The Disneyland Sign generator is a hoot.
