Like many other Disney fans, we not only visit the parks, we run them!  This year on WDW marathon weekend, we celebrated our 17th lifetime marathon—our 8th at WDW.   Whether you’re Goofy, Dopey, or “just” doing the marathon, taking the challenge to train, to endure, and to finish the marathon at Disney World is a dream come true.

When not participating in races at WDW, we love to support our friends on the course by “chearing” them on and by capturing images of their in-race progress and post-race celebrations.   It’s hard to believe another marathon weekend has come and gone.  But there’s always next year!  Who’s going to take the challenge?
