  1. I contacted runDisney about duathlons. They don’t offer an event. If they did, I’d bike with any DisDad that wanted to run!

  2. @ Jason I think I had heard that there was a disney Triathalon at one point. Biking disney could be a lot of fun. They do have the blessing of space so they could set up a pretty big loop.

    For those of you that listened to this podcast that are just considering doing a disney race I’d remember the following:

    1) There are a lot of different Disney race lengths. If a half seems to daunting they do have 5ks. The EE 5k is a particularly good choice because it comes with a tech tee and a real medal.
    2) Use the race as a catalyst to get healthy, don’t wait to get healthy before you sign up. Even for a half marathon if you sign up 5 or 6 months in advance that will give you enough time to train from couch to half marathon.
