Megan Biller is THE Expert on Running & Walt Disney World!


Today I’m talking with Megan Biller about two of my favorite pastimes: running and visiting Walt Disney World!

In addition to the many (too many?) races that are run at Walt Disney World each year, there are lots of options available when it comes to running on property while you’re visiting for vacation any time of year.

Megan wasn’t a runner growing up, but she did develop a love for Walt Disney World in her younger days.

And that love for Disney didn’t waver as she’s grown up.

In fact, while visiting the parks for her honeymoon she remembers seeing folks wearing medals around their necks and realized that marathon weekend was the weekend prior to her visit.

And once she had started to get into running, she figured that if she was going to run she might as well run races at Walt Disney World!

And the rest is history!

5 Reasons to Spectate a Race (with Video)

I’ve run about 20 half/full marathons so far, and yet one thing that I’ve never done is attended a race that I wasn’t running to support the runners.

As a runner that has always appreciated the spectators that have been at the races I’ve run, I have been feeling the need to cheer at a race for awhile now, and simply haven’t made it happen. But that all changed this weekend, when I got to experience the joys of cheerleading with my daughter while the wife ran the Princess Half Marathon.

I had a blast watching the race, and if you need a reason to spectate a race, press play to get my top 5.

If You’ve Been a Spectator at a Race Before, What Other Reasons Do You Enjoy Watching/Cheering a Full/Half Marathon?
