runDisney Character Photo Books by Shutterfly

I've participated in 17 runDisney races since my 1st Walt Disney World Marathon in 2009 with my identical twin sister "Marathon Maniac" LeahSince we LOVE to have our pictures taken with all the characters before, during and after each race, we always create Shutterfly photo books after each runDisney weekend! Then, we bring the photo books with us to our next runDisney weekend so that I can share my accomplishment and collect character autographs! You can create your own Shutterfly photo book at!

2011 Star Wars 5K at Disneyland

At the start of Star Wars 5K! 

I ran into Jeff Galloway right before the start of the runDisney Star Wars 5K. He's such an inspiration and his training plans are great for new runners. I was very fortunate to run with Jeff at the runDisney Meet Up & Warm Up at the 2012 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend and the 2012 Princess Half Marathon Meet Up. I ran this 5K fast since there were only a few characters along the course (FYI...many more characters at the Walt Disney World races!). Unfortunately, it was a "fun run" so I don't have an official time - but I'm OK with that unlike my twin, Leah, who doesn't race unless it's official! ;-) She does make an exception for runDisney's 5Ks - since she loves character photos as much as I do!  

Chip N Dale on the course!
runDisney's Bob Hitchcock is in my photo! :-)
I got a lot of good running photos!
Thanks Brightroom! :-)
So fun to see the Gang all dressed-up! :-)
