Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • I see that one of the "Moms" has run the marathon...my son, daughter and myself have signed up for the 2009 1/2 marathon, but we are beginners...just up to a fast walking pace as of now. Any advice? I'm hoping we don't get swept! Thanks!

  • Hi there Karen! A few of the Moms are runners myself included. I know that Disney Mom Michelle has run in Walt Disney World marathons and I think also Disney Mom Bret. In fact, we are all in training to run the "Expedition Everest" race in September!

    All of us, except our beloved Bri are running this race and plan to train all summer. We range from beginning runners to marathoners. Our main goal is to stay together and to have fun! The best part of the Disney marathons is that you get to see Walt Disney World from a completely different vantage point.

    I am a fairly new runner(about 8 years). I started slow by walking, than moved up to a slow jog. At one point I could only do 5 or 10 minutes at a time. I am still pretty slow, but I can run 3 to 7 miles at a time now. Keep training and have a magical run!
