Mai Khuong's thoughts:

Walt Disney World Half Marathon - The Disney World half marathon was my 20th half marathon! :) I had deliberately not signed up for any halfs after Vegas so I could make this one my 20th. Great planning, right? :)

After the 10k race, I was ready to leave Epcot behind.  LOL. Luckily, the half marathon takes you through Epcot AND Magic Kingdom and honestly, getting to run through Magic Kingdom was one of the highlights of my trip.

We entered through the front entrance, ran down Main Street towards Cinderella's castle and into Tomorrowland.

We veered around through what I think was Frontier land and circled around the castle and then through it. That portion wasn't as magical as I thought since there are so many runners and there is only so much space underneath the castle, but it was just a sight to see all the buildings so beautifully lit up. There were characters littered through park so naturally, my pace was that of a snail's because I had to stop at every character stop. LOL. Throughout the race, I took pictures with characters from Monster's Inc, Alice in Wonderland, The Little Mermaid, Toy Story, The Incredibles, and even Pirates of the Caribbean. :)

It took me 3 hours 2 minutes and 32 seconds to complete the half marathon and I enjoyed every moment of it.
