The ultimate catalyst that transformed me from a non-runner into a race participant was the irresistible allure of being in Disney World, really any excuse I can get I will use. The promise of wandering through the enchanting lands, savoring Mickey-shaped treats, and embracing the palpable magic that permeates every corner of the park was too tempting to pass up. The runDisney races became the perfect excuse to immerse myself in the world of Disney, where dreams have a way of coming true.

In a remarkable twist of fate, the fervent Disney aficionado who wouldn't run even if being chased by an animated villain found herself swept away by the enchanting allure of runDisney races. The journey from a non-runner to a race participant was fueled by the prospect of improved health, the fear of missing out on a unique adventure, the allure of captivating medals, the immersive runDisney experience, and the irresistible magic of Disney World.
