My Boy's First Disney Marathon

Living in Orlando we are fortunate to have Disney in our backyard.  We try to get out to the park as often as possible.  Every year Disney has a few marathon events.  My kindergartener has really gotten into running and joined the running club at his elementary school  It is an hour before school normally starts on Tuesdays and I am proud to say we haven't missed a day.  I am not going to paint the picture that this feat has been easy but he wakes up and gets ready.  Several times it has been super cold and he has had to run in that but he has a very positive attitude even when it is cold out.  Since his newfound love of running he asked to be in a marathon.  He knew that Disney has a marathon so they were first on his list.  Disney has marathons for all ages and I do mean all.  Even one for crawlers to participate in.  My boy's age group had a 200 meter marathon and it was such a great experience.  He really felt super special from start to finish and was so excited to get his medal. Mickey was even there to give a high five of encouragement.  When they finished their race they had water, a banana, and a granola bar waiting for them.  They even have someone taking pictures of your child for the race.  We had such a great experience at Disney for the marathon that we can't wait for the next one.
