Whether you were blasting off to space or hanging out with 999 happy haunts, over the summer participants went a little mad with running their miles during the 2020 runDisney Virtual Series! Celebrating fan-favorite attractions found in the Disney Parks, runners laced up their sneakers for their at-home miles complete with themed race amenities and even while donning their athletic Disney style.

Take a look at a few of this year’s participants who added a little extra Pixie Dust to their runDisney Virtual 5K:

Who is she?! Is she a runner?!? 🏃🏻‍♀️Three months and three virtual 5k runs later, here I am! I loved participating in @rundisney ‘s virtual 5k series this summer! Am I a great runner? Absolutely not. Did I want to give up during all of them? You betcha. But I did it! Each “race” I completed ended up being better than the one before, and for that, I am so grateful! I am so excited to proudly display my first ever medals (which are INCREDIBLE, btw – swipe for a closer photo!) and I’m really proud I got out there and it. Mad props to you runners out there. Your motivation inspires me!! ✨Anyone else complete one or all of the virtual 5ks this summer? Which medal is your favorite?!☀️#runDisney #rundisneyvirtual #rundisneyvirtualseries #Disney #Running #DisneyMagicMoments

your ghost host 💜 ••• spooks came out tonight as I finished my last run of the @rundisney virtual summer series!! And my lil Wishables made a special appearance! Finished off the run with this graveyard-style worms and dirt I made. When I told my friend Tina this week about how I wanted to make this and use the ghost sugar cookies, she shared the idea of using Milanos as a tombstone – how SPOOPY!! Swipe to see how it all came together. ••• It’s been a really fun time trying to make these virtual runs different and unique, bringing in my own creativity by making my own shirts, creating playlists that I shared with you, making a themed treat for each race, and having Kyle start me off with fireworks and character stops along the way! ••• I really don’t know when I’ll be able to cross another finish line, but I seriously cannot wait. There’s really something ~magical~ about it.

Let’s try this again-all registered for my first half marathon during Princess Half Marathon weekend in February 2021! 🏃🏻‍♀️ • As you know, I had registered for what was supposed to be my first half during Star Wars ⭐️ Half Marathon weekend back in March however, it was cancelled due to to COVID-19 😞 • Today, Princess Half Marathon Weekend 2021 registration became available to annual pass holders and Disney Vacation Club members 🙌🏼 Registration opened at 10am and it’s always pretty stressful. Bibs are limited and the system doesn’t seem to have a rhyme or reason as to how it allows people/devices in. The allotted 10k and Challenge bibs for today sold out within about 20 minutes 🤯 • I actually did a thing and purchased the Disney Fairy Tale Challenge, which is the 10k AND half (😳), for a total two races and three medals 🏅Thankfully, I only waited 7 minutes to until I was able to register. Super excited for a weekend of good friends and magic ✨ • 👚: @wishesandwizards use code Taylor15 • 📷: @thesunshinestudiofl / @sunshinestyleblog
