    The third annual RunDisney Star Wars Light Side Half Marathon is this weekend at Disneyland. Has anyone participated in one in the past and how was your experience with it?

    That sounds pretty cool! Running in SW costumes, right? Or is it a normal run and they added SW somehow?

    You see, I haven't been there, so I can't tell you anything about it. You want to participate?

    They have three races throughout the weekend, 5k, 10k, and half marathon. They have one event at Disneyland in January and one at Disneyworld in April. I'm doing the 10k and half marathon at Disneyworld in April. From what I've seen a lot of people dress up in costumes. They have characters from the movies throughout the course too. I'm looking forward to it a lot.

    It's a pretty big race too. I think I read last year at Disneyworld they had over 40k people throughout the three races.

    That are really many runners!! With a lot of them wearing a costume it must be much fun. If you want to participate with a costume, I'd just check to not run the distance in high heels or in a Chewie dress or so. ;)

    Yeah, we can rule out me running in high heels or wearing a chewie dress for it.

    Ok, then we made the first step and know which costumes won't work for you. ;) :p

    If that helps in finding a good costume (if any), I don't know. :p
