On April 17, 2016 I ran the Inaugural RunDisney Star Wars – The Dark Side Half Marathon at Walt Disney World in Florida. After not doing a RunDisney event for two years because they have just got so expensive, being a Star Wars Junkie, this race had me from the announcement.
The race weekend started on Thursday and included Kids Races, 5k, 10k, and the half marathon. Since I only participated in the half marathon, we drove down on Friday and stayed until Monday. When we arrived on Friday, we went to the race expo at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex.

The 2015 Walt Disney Marathon is only weeks away now. After three years, I am taking this year off; however, as I come across things, I thought I would share, and this is big. Click on the picture above for all the new merchandise that will be sold at the race expo. The big item is the RunDisney Magic Band. You knew it would not take Disney long to capitalize on this one. I have already asked by running partner, who will be there for the Goofy, to pick me up one!
