So what's next?  Race wise, I'm not sure.  After I completed this race, my parents asked if I liked it enough to do it again, and they asked it with a leading question for next year.  I answered honestly though: this was a fun weekend, but I intended Tink to be my last Run Disney race for a while.  The prices keep increasing, and I feel there's less and less entertainment on the courses, while the fields keep growing beyond the courses' capacity.

I don't quite know what I'll do next.  I do need a race on the schedule because I have my Oiselle singlet coming.  I need to show it off :)  I do have some unfinished business with the Showdown 5k since my knee problems began again during that race, and the Pumpkin Spice 10k is an option right before Thanksgiving. 

Tuesdays on the Run with PattyErika, and Marcia.   


  1. I did think the course was lacking entertainment this time around. I feel like other Disney races do much better on the entertainment front. I am such a sucker for the races though, I still love them.

    1. I still had a lot of fun running through the parks.

  2. I would like to do Tink again if it were closer but I totally understand your reasoning not to. I do agree that the entertainment for Tink was lacking compared to at wdw.

    1. I want to focus on local races now and maybe have my next trip to Disney be a full vacation.

  3. Nice job! I've never run Disney and I probably won't since it's so darn expensive. Plus I love Disney as a theme park. I don't need to run it. :)

    1. It's a fun perspective running through the parks, but they are expensive. That also means though organization is pretty good.

  4. Tink is definitely on my list but it's not one I would be able to do on a regular basis due to travel time and distance. Great job! Love your outfit too! :)

    1. Since I'm between parks, I have to travel to both coasts. I can't do them that often, and my last Disney trip was in '14.

  5. It's always fun to pick another race but I think it can be tough to decide! Looking forward to seeing what you end up doing!

    1. It won't be before the fall to give me more time to focus on self PT, but I'm already looking at the fall calendar.

  6. Love your 10k outfit! Its definitely becoming harder and harder to justify the costs of runDisney. I don't understand how some people can run multiple runDisney races every year.

    1. I don't know either, and I like having a bit of time between trips. It keeps things special for me, like a fun reward.
