2014 was a heck of a year! We want to thank you all for supporting us by reading our blog and following us on Instagram, Twitter and our Facebook page. Perfectly Goofy Gail and I ran a total of 31 races/341.78 miles TOGETHER in 2014. What makes this more impressive, at least to me, is that we live 2,500 miles apart!
So before we finish up our 2014 race recaps (Tower of Terror, Wine & Dine, Avengers and Las Vegas Full among others) and jump to our tips for Running All The runDisney Races of 2015…let’s take a moment to pat ourselves on the back 😉

Favorite Race Run Together:
Perfectly Goofy Gail: Walt Disney World Marathon – it was the VERY first race we ran together (in fact we met in person just 4 days earlier at the Race Expo) and the race that launched our friendship. Can’t think of a better reason for it to be my favorite!
Kimberly: Tinker Bell 5K – it was the SECOND race we ran together were I didn’t want to lay down and die! It was beyond fun because we dressed up and stopped at all the character stops! I just wish we had a photo of us trying to get UP and OFF the stage above!!!
Favorite runDisney Costume:
Perfectly Goofy Gail: If I can, I’m going to group the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Weekend races together. Out Hitchhiking Ghosts and Haunted Mansion Stretching Room Portrait costumes were big hits. We had just as much fun taking photos with fellow runners and Cast Members as we did running the races ourselves.
Kimberly: I have to choose the Jingle Jungle 5K costumes. Christmas is my favorite time of year and these costumes were so much fun to wear …unless you were trying to run a 5k 😉
Favorite Run All the Races RACE Memory of 2014:
Perfectly Goofy Gail: Kimberly was the very first person I ran a race with at Walt Disney World that was willing to ride Expedition Everest with me in the middle of the marathon!
Kimberly: “Getting close to the wildlife” at Ragnar Adirondacks – Ultra. We haven’t shared the story….yet.
Favorite Drink All The Drinks of 2014:
Perfectly Goofy Gail: While technically not an “adult beverage” I have to go with the hot tea (with a side of BIG beer) we had after finishing the Rock ‘n Roll Las Vegas Marathon. We’d completed the Disneyland Avengers Half Marathon that morning in California, hopped a flight to Nevada, and ran the full that evening. We got wind blown at Disneyland and ran through an arctic blast in Las Vegas. I just wanted to sit down and GET WARM!
Kimberly: Oompa Loompas of course!!! Any cocktail served in a pineapple wins! And although I love Trader Sam’s, I do love a Lapu Lapu at the Tambu Lounge at Disney’s Polynesian Resort.
Perfectly Goofy Gail: SO MANY to choose from, but our Disneyland Club 33 bathroom fainting couch selfie is my winner. Talk about a bucket list day!
Kimberly: It is a family tradition to take our photo with the Wooden Indian on Main Street U.S.A. Every race that runs up or down Main Street U.S.A., we stop for an #usie. Here’s just ONE of many we posed for during 2014.
