RIP: Tower of Terror 10 Miler

Guys.  My favorite runDisney race of all time, The Tower of Terror 10 Miler, did not make it onto the rD schedule for 2015.  It took me a week to grieve and I appreciate your patience in the process.  Despite my overwhelming sadness, I wanted to share, in memoriam, the highlights of this year’s race.

Running with Mara and Sarah

Running in costume

I’m no stranger to the Sparkle Skirt or the running tutu but I’d never gone in costume.  Jan whipped up these adorable Alice in Wonderland tutus – I was Alice {rocking the Big O burn out tank on top}, Mara was the White Rabbit, replete with ears, pocket watch and poofy tail, and Sarah was the Cheshire Cat.  We looked adorable.

 

Night racing the DHS and the Villian’s Bash

I love the Hollywood Studios, especially at night.  It’s so fun to end up in such a pretty park with the light twinkling and people out in full force supporting.  The Villian’s Bash has always been a fun time.  This year, unfrouantely, the lines were super super long {which is a huge shift from the last two years when we only had to wait about 5 minutes for all the popular rides}.  It was a bummer but we did start in the last corral – I think that had something to do with it.

The medals

Spring loaded action – the best!

Treat, eats and family

I traveled again this year with my mom and dad.  MB couldn’t make it and Msheed was there to cheer us on at the finish line and have tons of fun with us all weekend.  We ate the tastiest treats {cinnamon rolls and ice cream for everyone} and had the best time.

I hope that after the construction is done at DHS that ToT comes back.  But if it doesn’t dear ToT please know that you will always have a special place in my heart.  You were truly too brief a treat.

 

Have you ever had a severe meltie when you fav race got cancelled?

Oh also — RIP Maelstrom.  I didn’t really like you but a lot of people did and I get why everyone’s up in arms about your demise.
