Star Wars Light Side Weekend Remembered (Friday Five Edition)

I am currently in Disneyland enjoying the Star Wars Light Side Challenge.  I thought I would share some fun things from last year.

1. I ran Dopey the week before and I still ran all three races for the Light Side Challenge.

Three Star Wars and four Dopey

2. I met up with my friend Candace and her husband and my friend Kelly.  Both whom I met separately at Tinkerbell in 2014.

3. They had some fun props to take pictures with before the race.  For those of you that don't know Star Wars very well, this is a scene from Empire Strikes Back where Luke was taken by the Wampa and held in his cave.

4. Kelly and I had breakfast at Goofy's Kitchen after the 5k.  It's becoming a tradition when we go to Disneyland.

5. The half marathon was the most fun I've had in a race.  And this is from someone that ran Dopey the week before.  There is a group of Cos Players that dress up and come out and watch the half.  And take pictures with the runners.  They make the race even more fun.

Do you have restaurants where you always go when you are in Disney?  What is your favorite runDisney race?

I'm linking up with Fairytales and Fitness and Running on Happy for Friday Five 2.0


  1. That's impressive that you ran Dopey and then went and did all 3 Star Wars races! I hope you're having fun this year too :)

  2. Sounds like it was a great race weekend last yr. Hopefully this year will be just as good if not better. Your legs will at least feel a little fresher after not doing Dopey the week before. Enjoy your time there!

  3. You had so much fun! :) I hope you have a great race this year!
