The Star Wars half-marathon was one of the most fun experiences I’ve ever had. I absolutely understand why people say runDisney races are different now. Especially the Star Wars races.
The second day of getting up between 2 and 2:30 am was a little rougher. Not bad, but after having put a pretty solid day in at Hollywood Studios, my alarm wasn’t the best sound I’d ever heard.
We did like everyone said to: use the runDisney 5k to get the main character photos we wanted. BB-8, Artoo, Phasma, and Chewie are our buddies now.
It started with a random text message. And ended with one of the most wonderful, happy, and memorable weekends of my life.
A lot of my memories at theme parks involve running, but this one was different. My dad and I ran across the world to save our souvenirs, but that isn’t what treasure I got that day.
