There’s so much to say, but I don’t know how to put the words onto paper in a way that will convey the true meaning of this weekend’s experience at the Inaugural Tinkerbell Half Marathon at Disneyland. I’ve come to know that when Disney does something, they do it right. I’m a veteran Disney World vacationer and have participated in five runDisney events, so I thought … Read entire article »
