If you’ve read my previous posts about running around the world and marathon training and still don’t consider yourself athletic enough to try, I highly recommend considering running in one of runDisney’s Family Fun 5k’s.
When planning ahead for the just past 2012 WDW Marathon Weekend, I knew that I would be 25 weeks pregnant come race weekend and wanted to find an alternative to the previously scheduled half marathon. For me personally, I wanted to continue running in my pregnancy, just not very long distances. Had they offered a 10k (6 miles), I would have happily accepted, but instead, I signed up for the Family Fiesta 5k!
Themed differently for every event – even the annual races have different themes – these races are fun for all. Strollers are allowed – technically only for walking and are expected to start behind the runners – and even those in the strollers earn the medal! Like the other races, they recommend a 16 minute-per-mile pace or faster, but there were no timers and I highly doubt anyone was swept.
