Linda's Fur Fun 5K race report

On  April 28, I participated in my 3rd #run3rd event in for the 3rd weekend in a row, the Love-a-Stray Fur Fun 5K. As seems to have become customary for my races, the weather was overcast, chilly and damp. In fact, there was a good bit of drizzle and light rain, though the heavy rain held off until nearly all the awards were given out after the race!

There was a pre-race expo with dogs of all sizes to pet and doggie products to buy. (I have no dogs, just a ferret!) I unexpectedly ran into a colleague from work, and we hung out and wandered around together until time for the race to start.

Summer's Diva Half Marathon SF race report

Submitted by Summer Irby @SummerRunDisney

#Run3rd Diva Style

This was my very first official, unofficial #run3rd race. As I mentioned in my Princess Half recap I have done #run3rd dedications before, but this was the first time I asked for others to give me dedications and got them!! Each request was so personal and so inspirational so I really wanted to help share their stories and that is what I hope to do here.

I set my alarm for 5:35, which was a nice change from the 2:30 I usually set it for runDisney races, and woke up just before it went off. I got up and dressed and with my #run3rd post-it in hand I was ready to head out to the start line.

Read the dedication for each mile at Summer's blog, Running with Pixies…

Kelli's Cap City Half Marathon race report

All I Really Need to Know About Running a Half Marathon I Learned in Kindergarten

1. Play Dress Up

This was only my second half marathon. My first was the Disney Princess, which now has set the bar of “dress up” for races. I must fully admit that I am not typically a Princess-type of gal—but I think I can now officially say that I have harnessed my inner princess! The outfit I choose seems to have new meaning with each race I am running. While I wasn’t in full creative princess dress up mode this race, I was very excited about my new blinged up #Run3rd skirt! So, yes… I play dress up (and I LOVE it!).

2. Wait patiently in line…
