So back in January I registered for the Disneyland Half Marathon weekend and more importantly, the highly talked about inaugural Dumbo Double Dare Challenge where you run the inaugural 10k race on Saturday and the half marathon on Sunday. If completed, you get the medals for both of those events AND a special challenge medal. Same premise as the Goofy Challenge during WDW Marathon weekend in January.
So for months there has been talk and speculation of what the medals will look like and when they will release the images for them. Well the day was yesterday! I was wondering that since the Everest race had happened recently and there are no other races between that and the Disneyland Half weekend, that the announcement would come soon (don't want to take attention away from pending races). All I have to say is that runDisney outdid themselves with these medals, check these beauties out!
The medallion for the 5k, which I also signed up for, is just so stinking cute! LOVE the concept and it's just too much fun! The 10k medal next to it (I'm so glad it's a medal and not a plastic medallion, good form runDisney!) is just too much fun! Love the Tea Cups ride at Disney and love that this theming was used for the medal! The Disneyland Half medal is next to that, and man is that some piece of hardware! It looks great and love that it has the year on the medal and not just on the lanyard. Then next to that is the coveted Dumbo Double Dare medal. They did a FANTASTIC job conceptualizing this beauty! LOVE that there is color on the medal and the circus them on the medal and lanyard is brilliantly done. Like I said, I love ALL of the medals that were unveiled and can't wait to get these in Aug/Sept!
So todays "jam" I really fought with about posting. It's a new song that I liked and thought the singer who is featured on this song was someone else and not...Justin Bieber. Ugh. I am not a fan of him or his songs, but this one seems to work, marginally. If it weren't for the beat and stylings of will.i.am, I don't think I would listen to this song at all. So without further ado, please find todays "jam":
So I was surprised that it was Justin Bieber and he still looks a bit out of place in the video, but the song itself is a catchy tune and one that I will be adding to my running playlist. I've always been a fan of will.i.am, he really has an ear for what is relevant and coming up. So I'm always pleasantly surprised when more music is released by him. Hope you all can take a listen and let me know what you think! Have a great Thursday and hope you have some great plans coming up for the next couple of days!
