Today I am going a few easy miles with Joe Pardo as we discuss all things Disney.
Aside from his vast knowledge of Disney races, Joe is also a fellow podcaster, author, speaker, entrepreneur, and family man.
After hearing him on Podcast Junkies recently I knew Super Joe Pardo and I had a lot of topics to cover.
Joe ran sporadically as a teenager but began to be more consistent in 2011.
His first few years running he didn’t sign up for any races, yet he still ran 4-6 miles almost daily.
The Disney Princess Half Marathon in 2013 was his first race.
Since that first half, all but 1 of his races have been Run Disney.
Joe has done a variety of Disney races including, Wine and Dine, Coast to Coast Disney races, and a variety of distances all the way up to the marathon.
Some of the aspects of Disney races that Joe loves are:
- A generous cut off time.
- The people participating are some of the nicest he’s ever met.
- Fun and unique events.
Signing up for a Disney race often happens at least 6-8 months out.
With a large gap between sign up and race day, life can sometimes derail training.
Joe has learned that when going into a race undertrained it’s even more important to listen to your body.
