Disney Halloween 5K

This weekend I went down to Disney World and participated in the WDW Wine and Dine Family 5k. It was a lot of fun. It was held at the Animal Kingdom park. The same park that I did my 5k race in May. This was all part of my continuing training to get ready for my 1/2 marathon in January. In the spirit of Halloween I did dress up as Minnie Mouse. My race time was ok, coming in at 39:46, about a 12:35 minute mile.

I also had the opportunity to see first hand the Wine and Dine 1/2 marathon event later that evening around EPCOT. Depending on how the Tinker Bell 1/2 marathon goes, I might be running this 1/2 marathon next year. The race did not start till 10:00 pm and since I had to be up at 4am that day for my 5k, I was exhausted. I was watching from about mile marker 12, so the runners only had a little over a mile to go. Some runners were dress up in costume. I think the highlight for me was to see a runner dressed as a giant grape. How he ran in it, I will never know.

You Go Grape!
