Ever find that ONE PERFECT BOOK? You know the one. It’s got everything you ever needed all in one title, hidden away in its perfect little pages? Well, let me tell ya…since summer and reading seem to go together like me and Little Black Dog, or me and Moose Tracks ice cream, or me and…well…um…me and Little Black Dog eating Moose Tracks ice cream, then you know how well summer and reading go together! That IS where I was heading with this wasn’t it???
Anywho, the point of all this is I want to let you in on a little runner’s secret. If you’re looking for any info – and I mean ANY info all things related to running at Disney, then you need look no further than here. Right here. Really. RIGHT HERE.
Authors Krista Albrecht and Megan Biller have taken the time to lead you down the happy, happy path of all you ever needed to know about running a Disney race. They break down every – and I mean EVERY – aspect of running in the world of the Mouse. Yes – THAT Mouse!
From what events are available to how to handle a case of the post-race blues, everything you need to know is conveniently listed and oh-so-easy to find. And the giant chocolate chip on top? Both Krista and Megan know what they’re talking about as they’ve run the events themselves! Not with Ryan though. I think. Maybe.
Magical Miles-The Runner’s Guide to Walt Disney World has been updated for the 2014 Disney racing season, and you can find all the dates, location of start/finish lines, and available races for each race weekend in easy to follow chapters. A listing of last year’s host hotels are included as well, (the 2014 host hotels weren’t available when the book went to print).
As there are so many aspects of a race weekend at Walt Disney World, you’re going to need to think about everything from which race will work best for you and your family to what kind of trip do you want to have. Do you want to just come for the race(s) or make it part of a vacation? Where do you want to eat? Do you have dietary restrictions? Magical Miles has the answers to all these questions and more.
Need some prerace training advice? Links to Jeff Galloway and Tara Gidus are provided as well as a listing of available resources from a few peeps you might have heard about. You know – Bart, Meb, Dean. Yeah, THOSE guys.
I don’t want to give too much away about this piece of total awesome-ness, but what I WILL tell you is run and get the book. (See what I did there? hehehe) You’ll LOVE it! Promise. Seriously. Almost as much as I love a certain Little Black Dog and Moose Tracks. Almost.
Enjoy the ride.
