Disney’s Marathon Weekend 2014

Today is officially the start of the annual Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend.  For the next few days, runners from all corners of the world and their families will prepare to run one or more Disney races.  From a Family 5k to the after party, Disney has a fun-filled, busy weekend for all participants.

This year’s Marathon Weekend has something new and exciting as well.  New Balance teamed up with Disney again to create another line of limited edition running footwear to debut at this weekends Marathon events.  There is a variety of designs to choose from, inspired by Cinderella, Minnie Mouse, Sorcerer Mickey, and Goofy.

Check them out!

What are your thoughts on these designs?  I like the Cinderella one the best.

Don’t know what running shoe is best for you?  They can tell you.  Fit2Run is able to do an iStep barometric scan of your feet and point you in the right direction to the perfect sneaker just for you.  The store will also offer a complimentary video-taped gait analysis.  Once you find a shoe that you love, don’t hesitate to give them a test run around their indoor track.

Located in Downtown Disney West Side, the new store is going in next to Curl and across from the House of Blues.  Fit2Run is scheduled to open next month, in perfect time for the holidays.  But, while you wait, sprint on over to their website to see what’s in store- www.Fit2Run.com

Happy Running! °o°
