2016 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend Goals and Agenda

2016 DL Event Guide Cover

The 2016 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend is THIS WEEK!!!!!! I’m really excited about all the fun I’ll get to have this weekend! However, it’s a different kind of Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend for me. For the past three years, I’ve run the Dumbo Double Dare (even if the first year, it was an unofficial Dumbo Double Dare). So, it will be strange to NOT be running the Disneyland Half Marathon. I made the choice not to run the Dumbo Double Dare before we got Colton and I have no regrets. While I’ll miss running through Angel Stadium and that awesome car show before it, it has been nice to focus on other races this year. Having said that, this is the second year in a row where the Disneyland Half Marathon races are not the focal point of my training. A year ago, I was training for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Even though I’m missing this year’s Dumbo Double Dare, I’m planning on racing the Dumbo next year. I mean, who could miss out on a 5th Anniversary Dumbo Double Dare medal? Read more ›

Bouncing Back in Week 7 of Avengers Half Marathon Training!

IMG_4669

It’s Disneyland Half Marathon Week! I must admit, it’s a very different kind of Disneyland Half Marathon Week for me. For the past 3 years, I ran the Dumbo Double Dare. Even though I was training for the Chicago Marathon last year at this time, I was still using the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend as a key part of the training. This year, it’s not as key. I’ll talk about that more later this week. For today, I’ll just focus on last week’s training. It was week 7 of 17 in preparation for the 2016 Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon. It was quite the bounce back week! Read more ›

Quick Analysis of the Disneyland Half Marathon Course

Can you believe it? We’re less than a week away from the start of the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend! This year, I will not be running in the Disneyland Half Marathon. However, I have run in the past 3 Disneyland Half Marathons. I don’t have as much time as I would have liked to type this post out. However, I wanted to give a few pieces of advice for those of you who may be running the race for the very first time. Read more ›

Week 6 of Avengers Training was a Rough One

My streak of making getting all my training runs in for the week ended in week 6 of Avengers training. This week was just brutal. I missed Tuesday’s training run due to feeling under the weather. I don’t know if it was allergies or the start of a cold or just exhaustion. But, by the time I got home from work, I couldn’t go. I thought to myself that I’d make it up on the weekend. Read more ›

Spotify runDisney Playlists Lead to New Tunes on My Playlist

A few weeks back, I reported that Spotify had teamed up with Walt Disney Records and runDisney to put together playlists for the Disneyland Half Marathon, Wine and Dine Half Marathon, and Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathons. You can read about it here. Thus far, I’ve tried out the Disneyland Half Marathon playlist and the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon playlist. Unfortunately, I went with the free membership with Spotify. So, that meant I had to deal with ads popping up. Also, with the Avengers playlist, I was noticing that there were maybe 6 or 7 songs that kept repeating themselves. It worked much better with the Disneyland Half Marathon playlist. I am pleased to report that two songs have jumped onto my playlist as a result of this experiment (with others soon to follow).
