This Week’s Race Weekend Training Miles
Scott Douglas RunDisney: The Official Guide to Racing Around the Parks

The heart of the episode lies in the guidance and wisdom shared by Scott Douglas. His book RunDisney: The Official Guide to Racing Around the Parks, is a compendium of strategies and anecdotes, offers invaluable insights for both novice and seasoned runners looking to experience Disney races. The conversation with Scott extends beyond the book, exploring his own running background, the collaboration with other experts, and the challenges and triumphs in crafting such a comprehensive guide.

We then pivot to the exuberant community that participates in Run Disney events, drawing parallels between the races and a Comic-Con for athletics. The emphasis on community is palpable as we discuss the shared experiences of runners, the costumes that are as much a part of the event as the running shoes, and the importance of nutrition and training for optimal performance. The episode highlights how Run Disney events are a confluence of fitness, fandom, and family.
