We were thrilled to receive emails confirming our selection for the Marathon Meetup by runDisney. This event was to include a host of athletes, celebrities and of course a run through Hollywood Studios while the park was still closed to visitors. Our invitation told us to be at the entrance to HS by 6:30am on Friday and of course we were early and eager for this fun event! As soon as we were checked in we received a 20th anniversary runDisney shirt to wear. We quickly put on our shirts and a few special characters came into view for photos before our run.

It was an incredible group - celebrities, runners, the New Balance team, and former NFL linebacker Eddie Mason. We paid close attention to all of the speakers, soaking up every word. And now to the lessons of the day...
After the speakers, it was time for a few more photos and pick up our goodie bag. runDisney graciously provided each attendee with a 1-day/1-park ticket, an i-fitness belt and H2O products.

It was a fabulous morning and we are so grateful that runDisney puts on these fabulous events! As we worked on this post, we were still seeing stars after such a star-studded morning. It was simply fabulous.
Thank you runDisney!
