Confessions of a runDisney Diva

I love speaking with others about their love of Disney, how they incorporate Disney into their lives, and just insight of how they “do” Disney.  Sara, owner of Mickens Mouse Travel , shares her love of runDisney with us.


When and why did you decide to participate in a runDisney race? 

I decided in late 2011 to sign up for my first runDisney event, the Tower of Terror 10 miler in September of 2012. I wanted to challenge myself and I love doing “inaugural” events, so I signed up.

 How many races have you participated in?

13 runDisney races so far and I’m signed up for 4 more in the next few months.  I have not participated in any other races, but runDisney.

 What race or races do you want to participate  in?

Dumbo Double Dare Challenge & Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend

 What do you love about the race courses?

I love being able to run through the parks before or after hours.  The characters along the race course and the thousands of volunteers who always seem to say the right thing as you’re running past them. 


If you could come up with a theme for a runDisney race, what would it be?

I would probably do a race centered around Disney villains.  

What are your top 3 tips for a person who has never participated in a runDisney race?

1) Pace yourself, enjoy and take in your surroundings 2) Have Fun!  Races through the parks are about fun, it’s Disney after all.  3) Get your friends to sign up with you, I’ve had some of the most fun running through the parks with my good friends. Sara4
