WDWHalf Marathon Inspired Run a la Donald

Tonight I needed a little motivation to get out there and run.  So I grabbed a favorite runDisney shirt and thought that would be enough to motivate me.  Boy was it ever!  My yellow Donald shirt from this years half marathon inspired me to turn my whole run into a color run: I was hunting YELLOW!  The results: 6.5 miles and 21 oh so yellow photos!

Donald was my inspiration!
Check out all of this yellow! 

I decided not to put the shirt in the picture after  the first one.

I had to pick pump 4! It's a Dopey Challenge thing!

I took a how am I going to get myself out there running evening and turned it into a color run a la Donald!  It is amazing what you see on your run when you challenge yourself to look around!  Which color will I do next?  I don't know, but my runDisney race shirts are pretty colorful!

Please let me know if you are inspired to do a color run of your own and which color you choose to hunt!

  1. Love this! What a great idea and a great way to keep yourself busy on a run! It's like the car trip game where you look for license plates from as many different states as you can.

    1. Thanks Karla! When I needed a little something extra Donald was there for me! I was surprise how much yellow was out there when i just looked around! I of course could not stop thinking about which color I might do next time. Maybe red. It needs to be a stand out color on the landscape.

    1. Go for it Karen! There were no other runners out it yellow yesterday. If there had been I was going to ask for a group photo! Lucky for them they all choose different shirt colors!

    1. You just have to play where's Spring? I played that one a few weeks back with pairing off geese, squirrels chasing each other, spring peeper frogs singing, etc.
