The weekends usually begin with runners enjoying the Expo. The Expos at Disney are amazing. There are so many vendors and speakers. You even get sprinkled with pixie dust…yes, you heard right! The Expo is where you can buy official race merchandise, purchase last minute items, sign up for more races around the country, and get pumped up for the race on Sunday! At the Tinkerbell Half, I even got to preview some new shows for ABC (Missing and The River!) In between the Expo and the race, people usually visit one or more of the many Disney parks! A lot of people, such as myself, even visit the parks AFTER the race too! Surprisingly, I don’t have to be pushed around in a wheelchair at this time! I also love that everyone wears their medals to the parks after. Its always fun when Mickey, Minnie, the other characters and the rest of the Disney cast congratulate me on my medal and a run well done!
