The Unofficial runDisney Hercules Challenge

As a runner I know how tough it is to do back to back challenges. Last year we completed the Disney Dumbo Double Dare out at Disneyland and after two days of running followed by 5 days in the parks, I tell you I probably would have been better off running a marathon.

During this last month there were several individuals who not only did the Dopey Challenge, a 5k on Thursday, a 10k on Friday, a 1/2 marathon on Saturday and a full marathon on Sunday at Disney World, but then they flew out to California to compete in the Tinkerbell half marathon weekend, a 5k, a 10k and a half marathon back to back. Earning a total of 11 metals, including the challenge and Coast to Coast medal, they ran a total of 71 miles, in 7 races, through 6 parks over 11 days.

Over the last few years we have been trying to about creating a website that is both fun for us, but has interest for the reader. We thought long and hard, but everything we thought of was not long term interesting to us. We needed something we could love and bring life to it, that is when it hit us, we should start a website about Disney. We knew though that there were many websites out there that already touched on many Disney subjects, we needed something to be different. It dawned on us while building the website that our love of runDisney could be combined with our excitement for all other things Disney to bring to life not only a resource for those who run Disney, but to Disney fans alike. We wanted to bring a bit of magic, and we hope you hang on for the ride as we explore the magical world of Disney World .
