Walt Disney World Marathon 2010

Walt Disney World Marathon

As amazing as this image is (thanks, Garth Vaughan), it’s tough to show the conditions runners faced to begin the 2010 Walt Disney World Marathon today. At start, temperatures were in the low 30s — it was cold. But tens of thousands of participants braved the freezing temperatures and ran the 26.2-mile trek that included all four Walt Disney World theme parks.

Adriano Bastos from Sao Paulo, Brazil crossed the finish line to win the 2010 Walt Disney World Marathon with an official time of 2:22:08. He’s now won it seven times. And Lisa Mizutani, from Tsukuba, Japan, won the women’s division with an official time of 2:51:20.

Congratulations to all of the participants. Also, on Monday, Darrell Fry, Walt Disney World sports media director, will have a unique post from the event that you won’t want to miss.

I too missed the 1/2 this year after two years of doing it as a family. Cost for the race, flights and hotel stays prevented us this year. The fact that a new grandbaby was born in September did make a difference is one of our teammates training . :0 Hope to do it again in the future it’s a great race and venue.

I ran, I finished. I was so miserably cold and my knee hurt so badly that I swore that this, my first marathon, would be my last; now I’m planning on returning next year for the Goofy challenge as a member of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training…and furthering my goal of collecting a complete set of Disney Endurance Series medals for my kids :)

i am also looking to where i can find 2010 merchandise, i was just too miserable to make it to the tent after the race and at the expo it was so crowded that i didn’t get a chance to look at everything.
