A Magical Weekend
Hi friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend!! We headed south this weekend to escape the rainy NYC weather and to run the Walt Disney World Marathon. This was our second year running this marathon and had so much fun we’ve decided we’ll make this an annual tradition!
Disney’s Hollywood Studios
We spent Saturday at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We both LOVE big roller coasters so naturally our favorite ride was the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster. We chose to go to Hollywood Studios this year since we had gone to The Magic Kingdom two years ago and Universal Studios when we were in Florida last year.
Every Mile is Magic – WDW Marathon
Sunday, we woke up extra early… like 3am early… to run the Walt Disney World Marathon. Every mile is truly magical, there are characters along the route and many runners dress up in some of the most creative costumes you could ever think of. Last year I stopped and took a photo of every mile marker and got sucked into doing the exact same thing this year. We ran the first 13 miles together and then right as Sal was ready to pick up his pace I met a friendly girl from Minnesota I ran most of the second half with. It took me a little longer to run the race this year but it was also incredibly humid so I’m using that as my excuse
One of my favorite hashtags I see on a lot of couple’s running pictures is #coupleswhoruntogetherstaytogether but one thing no one ever mentions is how stinky running leaves your shoes and gear! Thankfully, I found Squelch! Squelch is a fragrance free smell remover that I will no longer ever travel without! A quick spritz in each shoe takes away the smell and leaves on the go girls like me stress free!
