Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend Medals Revealed!!!!!!

So, all week long, runDisney has been revealing the medals for upcoming races. First, it was the Disneyland Half Marathon medal. Then, we got the Wine and Dine Half Marathon medal. So, it makes sense that runDisney would roll out the next race medal….

2016 Avengers Medals

Ladies and gentlemen…the 2016 Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend medals! What do you think?

Here are the medals from last year. As you can see, the Infinity Gauntlet Challenge medal remains the same. They’ve changed the 10K theme from Captain America in 2015 to Dr. Strange in 2016. So that change was easy to predict. However, they are changing up the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon medal. Not only did we have the spinner last year….

but, we had the spinner in the Inaugural Year of 2014. So, it will be nice to have a slightly different medal this year. The spinners were nice. However, I’ve already earned two of those. So, yay for a new medal!

So, what do you think of the medals for the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon? Will Iron Man ever get some love from the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon? Why do you think that Avengers is the only race weekend where we got more than one medal revealed this week? Is it because only the Captain America 5K is Sold Out? Hmmmm.

Colton’s First 4 Months

It’s hard to believe it. But, my boy crossed the 4 month mark on Monday of this week. Yikes! Where is the time going? I thought it might be fun to take a brief look back in pictures of those first 4 months.

NEW runDisney Medals Revealed!

Okay, y’all. The folks at runDisney have had a busy week. We got a peek at not one, but TWO upcoming race medals. Did you see them?

2016 DL Half Medal

First, on Monday, we got to see the 2016 Disneyland Half Marathon medal. This medal kind of makes me wish I’d signed up for the race. I love me some Mickey Mouse. But, Mickey and Pluto running on a medal? Yes, please! Even though I’m tempted, I’m training for the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon and setting a PR at that race. So, adding a half marathon isn’t in that plan. I will be jealous (sort of) of all those who will earn this bad boy this Labor Day Weekend.

2016 Wine and DIne Medal

So, as if ONE medal wasn’t enough, we got a peek at the Wine and Dine Half Marathon medal for this year on Tuesday. Yikes! Two medals in two days. While it’s not that uncommon to see the medal reveal in July for the Disneyland Half Marathon weekend. Getting a reveal of the Wine and Dine Half Marathon in July seems early to me. Could we get a peek at the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon medal today? Time will tell. I do like this medal. Even though, I’ve liked other Wine and Dine Half Marathon medals better. This one isn’t that bad.

What do you guys think? Do you like the medals? I can’t wait to see the Disneyland 10K medal for this year! Come on runDisney…keep the medal reveals coming!

Avengers Half Marathon Training Week 1 Recap – Starting Off Right

Week 1 of the 2016 Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon got off to a really good start! My finish times weren’t as good as I want them to be by November. However, I finished all 3 runs that were on the calendar. So, it was a good start.

One week ago, I upped my mid-week training game by adding a mile. Jeff Galloway’s plan calls for runs of 45 minutes for the mid-week. Since I’m usually between 47 and 51 minutes over 4 miles, going for 4 miles is close enough. I was tired heading into the run (what’s new?). So, since this was week one, I decided to take to run 30 seconds, walk 90 seconds the entire way. Plus, I knew that this was my first time running the 4 mile route in a while. So, it would be good to start off slow. Read more ›

Looking at Walt on the Day After Disneyland’s 61st Birthday

61 years ago yesterday, Disneyland officially opened their doors and the world has never been the same. In the past, I’ve been able to write a post on Disneyland’s “Birthday.” This year, since that day happened on a day I don’t post any blogs, I thought it would be interesting to look at a few of the videos online about his life. After all, this is supposed to be “Motivation Mondays.” What better way to be motivated than learning about this very inspirational figure that started the company that would build Disneyland.
