Photobucket Restricted 3rd Party Hosting

I apologize for the lack of photos on my posts right now.  Photobucket has restricted 3rd party hosting to only accounts you pay for and I have been using their free hosting.  I am currently researching new options for photo hosting and hope to update my posts to include actual photos at some point in the near future.

2016 runDisney Virtual Running Shorts Series

I was contemplative when runDisney decided to hold a virtual 5K series during the summer of 2016. I wasn't sure if the cost was worth it or not, but I also knew that there aren't many things to keep me motivated during the Arizona summer, so I thought I'd give it a try. I decided to sign up for the full series which includes three virtual 5K races. Each race completed earned a medal and completing all three races earned a series medal. The registration fee also included a tumbler. Once the series was over, participant tumblers and medals would be mailed.

A link was sent to participants to go to the runDisney website to print out participant bibs. They included one bib for each race and one for the series.

Since these races are truly in summer, I completed all three races on my treadmill. I didn't have any issues completing the miles required.
I had moved after I signed up and my medals were mailed to my old address, but were then returned to the post office. I had to go to the post office to pick them up and at that time I was notified that I'd have to pay $7 to get them. I agreed to pay, although I did think this was rather ridiculous that runDisney sent them COD. When I got the box home and opened it up I was very impressed. The tumbler is pretty cute and the medals are very impressive - all four medals are metal with color and the size rivals some of my half marathon medals. Overall, I'm very impressed by the medals and it made the cost a little more justified.
