The summer of 2018 is truly incredible for our family. The long awaited Incredibles II hit theaters on June 15th and Toy Story Land opened in Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World. To kick start the summer and get back in shape, I decided to take part in the Run Disney Virtual Running Shorts 5K series….with the theme starring no other than the Incredibles! The Run Disney events are truly awesome and I highly recommend taking part in these whether you are a beginner, advanced runner, or not even a Disney fan. The events are just really well done and sooo much fun!
As for the 5K virtual series, you can sign up at the Run Disney site below to take part. There are a series of three 5K races, that you can run ANYWHERE, each in June, July, and August. You could literally run 3.1 miles in circles in your backyard and Disney would not care. As long as you log your miles and record your time…you are good….it is all on the honor system, which makes it really cool for those who just want to get into running on their own pace or need a little extra motivation to get those running shoes back on…like me! You can sign up for all three (although only July and August are currently available), or individual 5Ks. With each race you receive a medal and cool Run Disney stuff. After you have finished a 3.1 mile run (aka 5K), you log on to the link provided from Run Disney to log your time and print a custom finisher certificate. It’s really a fun way to make you feel a little more “incredible” this summer and who doesn’t love to get a medal? Below you can check out the Run Disney pack and medals you receive when you sign up for the entire virtual series as well as an example finisher certificate.
