Some 250,000 people participate in runDisney events in Orlando, Fla. each year (more than half of these runners are women), and most make the journey to Walt Disney World not just to race but to also enjoy a fun-filled vacation at Disney theme parks.
Michigan runner and writer Megan Biller is one of the many who share a passion for these races. In addition, Megan is the author of Magical Miles: the Runner’s Guide to Walt Disney World, a tour book that guides families through all the aspects of a runDisney event, including resorts, restaurants, the races and more.
Megan joins Heather on the show to talk about how she started running within the past 10 years, why she loves Disney races so much, and why she decided to write a book to help other runners make the most of their race experience in “the most magical place on Earth.”
Megan has run numerous runDisney events, including the Dopey Challenge, an event featuring four race distances totaling 46 miles in one weekend. Megan also co-hosts a Disney-themed podcast, Let’s Run Disney. Learn more on the Runner’s Guide to Walt Disney World Facebook page here »
