My Disney Resolutions for 2013

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Peach. Enjoy the ride as we share our 2013 Disney Resolutions. This month's topic has many changes coming for me but most of all the one resolution I want to make this year is participating in a 1/2 marathon at Walt Disney World. 

It has been a dream of mine to sign up for one of the runDisney's marathons. I have done a lot of research on them and not only are they great exercise but, look like lots of fun. The medals are beautiful too and represent each of the different races. But the preparation is serious, I have never done one before and I'm starting small. The trick is to follow the plan on the runDisney site

Some of the upcoming races are:
Tinkerbell Half Marathon ~ 1/18 thru 20th @ Disneyland or
Disney Princess Half Marathon ~ 2/22 thru 24th @ Walt Disney World or
Expedition Everest Challenge ~ May 4th @ Walt Disney World 

But the one I'm really interested in is the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler, date still to be announced. This race takes place at night with the ghostly streets haunted by Disney villains. Your commemorative medal announces your towering triumph as you ride thrilling Disney's Hollywood Studios attractions till 4:00 a.m.!

My 2nd and 3rd Disney resolutions are to take my time in the parks and discover something new. Since there are many dining experiences I still have to get to I put  Mama Melrose's, The California Grill and The Coral Reef Restaurant at the top of my list.
