TIPS ON GETTING COSTUME-READY FOR A RUNDISNEY RACE AT WALT DISNEY WORLD

Running a Disney race is an incredible experience; it really is like no other race.

I ran the WDW Marathon in 2018 with my husband, and as someone who puts way too much thought into how my race will go, I deliberated a lot about my costume in the lead up to the race. So I thought I would share some of my tips on getting RunDisney costume-ready.

GUEST BLOG #16 – WHY DO YOU RUN?

It’s been a wee while since I had a guest blogger on here – and I really am sorry for that as I blooming love them! I absolutely love them because; a) it’s great to be a little nosy and find out about how runners got started running; b) I like finding out about races that I’ve never heard of before; and c) (this is possibly my most favourite) hearing the incredible hints, tips and advice.

Today on ‘Why do you run?’ we have the pleasure of having Jamie. I’ve followed Jamie on Instagram now for a couple of years; no matter the weather, the workout or the time of day, she always has this huge smile on her face. I highly recommend you checking her out on IG and her blog (links are below). 

Enjoy!

RACE RECAP AND BEING A RACE PACER AT THE GOODLIFE VICTORIA MARATHON (8K TURKEY TROT – 55 MINUTE PACER)

If you follow me on social media, you may already know that on Sunday 13th October 2019 I was a pacer for the 8k Turkey Trot race in Victoria, British Columbia.

Being a pacer is something I have wanted to do for a couple of years now, but never thought I would be able to; it was purely down to a lack of confidence in myself, I just didn’t feel like a good enough runner to be a pacer. What rubbish! If you are able to run a pace consistently that allows you to easily talk throughout the race if necessary, then you can be a race pacer!
