As epic as this milestone is for the runDisney community, it’s a personal milestone for myself. I’ve spoken out about how hooked I was on runDisney after running the 2019 Princess 5K and immediately signed up for the Wine and Dine Half as soon as it opened up. This will be my first road race over 3 miles, as well as my first Half Marathon!
