Planning for a Third Year at the Star Wars Half Marathon

That’s right! I’ve signed up, yet again, for the Star Wars Half Marathon Rebel Challenge. I’ll be running both the 10K and the Half Marathon in January, 2017.

After last year’s injury really slowed me down, I’m excited to have another shot at the race. It’s also cool to reflect that since I ran Tinker Bell in 2014, Star Wars weekend 2017 will be my fourth time in a row running a half marathon during that weekend!

Better yet, I’ve got even more running buddies! Taylor, having had a great time at Tinker Bell Half in May, has also signed up for the Rebel Challenge. Kelly, having had such a great time spectating Tinker Bell, has taken the plunge as well— the Star Wars Half Marathon will be her first half marathon ever!

Jason is also running the half again (although skipping the challenge this year), so maybe I’ll see him again at the halfway point again! That was a highlight of last year’s race.

Until then, I have another runDisney race to look forward to! The Disneyland Half is coming up fast!
