  • Of course the 2018 medal would be way nicer Issac. It was the 25th anniversary for RunDisney. Regardless, see you all there in January!!

  • To be honest, I like 2018’s design better than 2019’s.

  • I can’t wait to get another Mickey medal for the full marathon in 15 weeks from now! This will be my 8th WDW Marathon (and 8th marathon altogether). Shooting for a PR and a BQ with the new qualifying standards just released!
