Disneyland Dumbo Double Dare

Disneyland_Walt and Mickey_01-19-13

I told you yesterday that GrammaJ and AuntJ will be running this fall’s Disneyland Half Marathon with me. (I did that mostly to publicly peer pressure them into *actually* signing up.)

I plan to complete the Dumbo Double Dare, which per the website:

If you think that a half marathon is just a walk in the park, put your endurance to the test and compete in the all-new Dumbo Double Dare! A 19.3-mile adventure held over two days, participants will run the Disneyland® 10K on Saturday, followed by the Disneyland® Half Marathon on Sunday. If you finish both races within the pacing requirements, you will be awarded the all-new Dumbo Double Dare medal in addition to your Half Marathon and 10K finisher medals.

Spots in the race filled up right quick. In fact, the only way to register now is through GetTravel, the official travel provider for all runDisney events at Disneyland (and enabler of my, “You know what would be a good idea?!” endurance-event whims.)

The following conversation between me and GrammaJ just occurred:

GrammaJ: I just heard from Get Travel that they have spots available for the half. How do I handle registration? What did you do before?

Me: They’ll send you a registration form. Then you’ll get a confirmation email. I’m so excited that you’re doing this!

GrammaJ: I think I am crazy.

Me: It’ll be fun! I promise. The plan is to go down to Disneyland on Friday, have dinner (and then drinks at Trader Sam’s), run the 10k Saturday morning and have a girls day in the park with you and J. Then we’ll all get up and do the half on Sunday!

The 10k is Alice in Wonderland theme, but I’m going to dress up like Dumbo for the half. You and J have some time to think about your costumes. Don’t worry, we’ll take lots of pictures! Because it’s Disneyland! But funner!

GrammaJ: I take it back. You’re the one who’s crazy.
