Today started out with some exciting news….
Oh HEY runDisney, I live in the ATL area! I had a dentist appointment at 10 and had planned on doing a long run after that, but NO WAY would I miss the chance to be at a runDisney Meetup – this one sounded like a blast…the first ever runDisney Meetup OUTSIDE the parks!
From Disney Parks Blog:
“If you are going to be in or around the Atlanta area on November 16, pay attention because runDisney is hosting a unique “On the Road to Disney” Meet-Up for 100 selected participants that will be unlike any other we have done. Selected participants will go on a 2-mile fun run through the streets of Atlanta. Naturally, we’ll make a turn through Turner Field, home of our long-time partners, the Atlanta Braves, who play their spring training seasons at Walt Disney World Resort.”
Just before 11, I started my stalking, with the Disney Parks Blog in one window, generic email on the ready in another. NOTE: I HAD to wait until I saw the Blog Post for the Meetup to be sure I had the correct email address and instructions. Send it too soon, or with the wrong info, you are out.
I kept refreshing the Disney Parks Blog not to miss anything. Around 11:20, my sacrifice of time at the computer paid off the announcement was was posted. A tweet followed this posting by 7 minutes, its always a good thing to have both going on when trying to make a runDisney meetup – you don’t know which notification will be first. They like to shake things up.
I verified I had the correct info on my email and was sending to the right address and VOILA….. faster than Dash my email was sent at 11:20:29am EST.
Then I went on with my day and around 5pm was alerted the list was up
I finished my very first half marathon back in 1999 the Atlanta Half at Turner Field with my Galloway group. Here’s my finish photo, if I look a little stressed, well it was you know 1 month til Y2K and it was raining…. But I was so proud of myself.
So 14 years later, I return to the area this time with my runDisney loving friends. I cannot wait!
Thanks runDisney for bringing the magic to Atlanta!
