Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend at Disneyland announced!!!


OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG

Look, I know that I'm geekier than most runners. But the holy trinity of Disney, Star Wars, and Half Marathons has come together for the Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend at Disneyland, just announced today. I'm stupidly excited, and just thinking about the race ... NEXT JANUARY ... essentially derailed me for most of the day.

See, when runDisney moved the Tinker Bell Half Marathon weekend to Mother's Day for 2015, I figured it was to open up a space in the race schedule. I also figured it would be a Star Wars-themed race. But I assumed that it would be a race at Disney World in May, which would cause some soul-searching and fretting.

So imagine HOW THRILLED I was to learn that I'd been half right -- yes, it's a Star Wars-themed race... but it's in January, in CALIFORNIA!!! What's more, they're offering a "Rebel Challenge" of the 10K + the Half Marathon, which has me all giddy.

Registration opens on June 10 at 9am Pacific, and it's bound to sell out super quickly. Go to the runDisney website for more information or to sign up for a registration reminder. Or, wait, don't. Let me register first, okay? Thanks. :)
