About runDisney Mom

I love all things Disney! I love visiting Walt Disney World, watching Disney movies, shopping at Disney stores and passing on the love for Disney to my two children. We’ve visited Disney five times in the past five years and twice last year! It is truly the most magical place on earth!

Five years ago I was 80 pounds overweight, out-of-shape and had no energy. When I started losing weight, I discovered that running was a great way to drop the pounds fast and get in shape. I decided to set a goal – I would lose 80 pounds to get to my goal weight and train for the Walt Disney World Marathon!

I never thought I’d run a marathon, but I knew that the only place on earth that would motivate me to run 26.2 miles would be Walt Disney World!

I not only lost the weight and got into the best shape of my life, but I ran the WDW Marathon and I’m training for the Goofy at WDW (Marathon and Half Marathon two days in a row) in January 2012 and the Princess Half Marathon in February.

I became a part of the Disney Parks Moms Panel in 2012 and I am honored to answer guest’s questions about the most magical place on earth!

I am now an RRCA running coach and have run five marathons, twenty two half marathons and multiple 10Ks and 5Ks.

I started runDisney Mom to share my knowledge of running Disney races and staying in shape while visiting Disney. You’ll find tons of running tips, notices on runDisney events, tricks for staying in shape while vacationing at Disney World and more! runDisney Mom is your one-stop-shop for all things running and Disney!
