75 days until the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon!


We're 75 days away from the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon, and preparations here at Team Wil-Sun are going well! Oh, wait, you didn't think I was talking about training, did you?

Yeah, um, training. Between now and then we're registered for 3 other half marathons, plus hiking rim-to-rim at the Grand Canyon in one loooooooooong day. So we'll get some running in, I promise.

But the really, really important part of running a runDisney race is nearly complete:

OUR RACE COSTUMES!!!

Running a runDisney race in costume is fantastic -- spectators, volunteers, castmembers, and your fellow runners will call you out by your character name... especially if you are slightly obscure. Running the 2013 Disney World Half Marathon while dressed as Daisy Duck (with Wil dressed as Donald, of course) was a real highlight -- as was running the full marathon dressed as Goofy! And running the 2014 Tinker Bell 10K as Maleficent was one of the simplest and most effective costumes I can imagine. Finally, the crazy hot and surprisingly heavy Cheshire Cat costume I wore at the 2014 Tinker Bell Half Marathon was a real crowd pleaser ... even if running in a fur hat isn't the smartest thing to do!

Now, to the Avengers half ... not only have we identified our characters of choice, we've gathered most of the pieces.... I need to get some socks and figure out what shorts to wear, but other than that, we're good. I can't tell you what we'll be wearing -- that would spoil it! -- but let's just say that I'm really looking forward to our post-race anniversary brunch in the park!

So... what will YOU be wearing for the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon?
