“At first an ordeal and then an accomplishment, the daily run becomes a staple, like bread, or wine, a fine marriage, or air. It is also a free pass to friendship.”

Goofy was a success!

Disney Half Marathon
A pose mid-race in front of the castle all lit up!

Disney Marathon
Somewhere around mile 15 things got iffy...
Chip time - 4:58:54
