Moving Forward - Without runDisney in Disneyland

This weekend marked the end of the last of the 2017 runDisney races and the end of Disneyland races - for a while. It is really sad for many of us – especially those of us – like me - who love to run at Disneyland. I loved the quaintness of running through the Disneyland parks, I loved that the Resorts were just steps away from the starting line, and l loved running through the streets of Anaheim.
Disneyland races made you feel so very special and that you were truly running a magical race! There has been so much swirling around the postponement of Disneyland races – was it really construction? Was it a feud with Anaheim politics? No one really knows but Disney. And I think that in the end – it’s the runners who really lose.

But, as Luke Cage would say, we have to keep moving forward…

and that brings us to 2018 and beyond and what awaits us in Walt Disney World!

We still have the 4 races in WDW and the 1 in Disneyland Paris.

Finding the Runner’s Mindset

How to Think Like a Runner

Now if this is your first time to run a half Marathon or your 100th, if you are like me you get nervous.  I don’t know why – but I do.   And what you have to do, is find your Runner’s Mindset to get you back on focus so that you can finish strong.  We do not want the Balloon Ladies… right?

So, now everyone has to find their own way of getting the Runner’s Mindset, but I am going to share mine with you – and hopefully it will get you to thinking about yours!
The idea behind being focus and being ready, is being prepared the night before.
