This week we are joined by Kristin of bamagirlruns (also @bamagirlruns on twitter and instagram) who has run every Princess Half Marathon since the beginning! We chat with her about how the race has changed over the last 10 years, and answer a lot of your questions. She also gives a few tips in preparation of the upcoming race weekend. Thanks for listening, and have a joyful day!
This week we wrap up our coverage of our 2018 Dopey Challenge with the full Marathon! Would it be another cold morning? What were we feeling going in? How would we end up finishing? Will we do another Dopey Challenge? These questions and more will be answered on this week's episode! Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel so you don't miss any of the awesome recaps Laura has been working on, and if you have yet to subscribe to the podcast, what are you waiting for?! If you could also take a moment and leave us a review, it would help us greatly, and we read them on the show, as we did this week! Thanks for listening, and have a joyful day!
Our 2018 Dopey Challenge continues with the Walt Disney World Half Marathon! We put on our best faces (yes, even Rob), as we battle the cold yet again. Seriously, these were some of our best costumes ever! Also, we talk about what we think of the revamped course, the cast of characters we would, eventually, stop for, and all of the hilarity that ensued! Oh, and if you are running this year's Darkside Challenge, you won't want to miss our special announcement. Thanks for listening and have a joyful day!
Our Dopey Challenge journey continues with the 10K! We would not let another very cold morning hinder our spirits because our costumes were just that funny! The ridiculousness also wouldn't end at the finish line either! We also touch on our time at the Cigna Social Media Event, as well as our joint meet up with Gerald Reznick, Kimberly Estabrook and Heather Jergensen! We are so very thankful for all that came to the meet up and said hello! We are also looking for your feedback. If you attended the meet up, what did you like? How was the location? Would you do it again? Be sure to send us a tweet or a message on facebook, and be sure to join our Joyful Miles Running Club group on facebook to keep us posted on your journey and goals! Thanks for listening and have a joyful day!
We finally start some running! Hard to believe that our Dopey adventure was nearly 2 years in the making, but we finally kick it off with the 5K. Also hard to believe that this is Rob's first ever runDisney 5K! Will he be back for more? We also decided to record live video that will be posted on our YouTube page, so be sure to check it out and see who picks their nose first! Thanks for listening, and have a joyful day!
We kick off our recap of the 2018 Walt Disney World Marathon and Dopey Challenge by covering the crazy Expo! We address how the later start time, weather and crowds all affected our experience. We also brifely talk about what we think of the recently announced Star Wars Virtual Half Marathon and Kessel Run. Look for our next episode to release Wednesday! Thanks for listening and have a joyful day!
This week we take some time to answer your Dopey questions! We don't mean that as an insult! With almost 2 weeks to go, we want to make sure you are all prepared to tackle the Dopey Challenge! Laura references Jen Sorenson's guest post which can be found here: http://joyfulmiles.com/weight-loss-through-happiness-and-running/ We also reference Stephen Goldman's guest post on spectating during the Marathon, which can be found here: http://joyfulmiles.com/tips-cheering-rundisney-races/ And of course we recorded this right before runDisney released bib numbers and corral assignments, but you can find all of that information, as well as the event guide here: https://www.rundisney.com/disneyworld-marathon/ Looks like it's going to be a party in D! Thanks for listening and have a joyful day!
"And now, the end is near..." This week the girls recap what could be the very last Disneyland race forever! The Superheroes Half Marathon! They also share their once in a lifetime experience of being able to dine in Walt's footsteps. Thanks for listening, and have a joyful day!
Avengers assemble! This week the gang is all here to pay homage to the end of the Disneyland races. We recap the last race weekend at Disneyland Resort (hopefully not forever), the Superheroes Half Marathon Weekend. Jackey and Laura had the pleasure of participating in all of the races, so you know it will be good! For part one we get through the Expo, the 5K and the 10K. If you like what you are hearing, we encourage you to leave us a review on iTunes, and subscribe if you haven't already. Thanks for listening, and have a joyful day!
