    So cute! My boyfriend wanted to run my upcoming 5 miler with me but he is on call for work, and this makes me wish he wasn’t! Although he will be waiting for me at the finish line. Great race! I think the problem with your french toast was that it looks a little dry — big bread (like challah) french toast is AWESOME when it is mushier!

    Awww, congrats to Derek!!! Finishing a 10k is a serious achievement! My boyfriend just started running too, so this made me think a lot of him :) Although – I don’t know if he’ll be down with sporting t-shirts at our first race together :P

    Congrats to you and Derek! I am crossing my fingers that one of these days I will be able to convince my boyfriend to run a race with me. I do love the support and having him there at every finish line – but it would be great to hold hand across one of those finish lines!

    Congrats you guys! As someone who is never doing a race to “race” I know the feeling of just being around other runners and having fun. It’s a really cool feeling. I have my first 10k in a few weeks and I’m nervous about it but you guys inspire me :-D

    So cute! :)

    My boyfriend Jared and I ran the Boston Half Marathon this morning. We wore matching outfits too…navy blue shorts and white t-shirts. I love that you two had shirts made!

    We didn’t hold hands crossing the finish line, but we did as we were funneled down the chute to get water. And we had the EXACT same time… 2:04:56

    Glad to see you had a great time at the Race for the Taste!

    I freakin’ love it. I think my heart just melted FOR you. Adorable. I am not a runner either but all of Derek’s hard work has inspired me to sign up for my first race in late December. I am so NOT a runner (aka, crash after 1/4 mile of running) but I am determined to challenge myself and complete my first race!

    Oh, and love the shirts!!

    Thats so awesome I wish I did the 10k but the only way I could get my friend her and her family to sign up is if we did the 3k lol. It was a nice quick distance of 1.8miles.

    The empanadas at one of the taste stations was delish!! Then we went to food and wine festival ALL day I’m about ready to PASS OUT!!

    What a great team you guys make! I’m so glad you found someone who is so supportive of your lifestyle, Meghann.

    I was also really excited to see so many other people walking during your 10k. It give me hope that I can start doing some races soon, walk breaks or no!

    PS. Love your shirts. You are too cute!

    Great job both of you!! (its hard not to run your own pace and have to wait)

    My poor hubby went from a couple 5k’s to running the Disney Half in 2008. I signed up to do the Goofy Challenge and figured I’d run the half with him. It was a great experience, after running for so many years I kind of forget how hard it is to build up your endurance. He rocked it though. Just like Derek rocked his first 10K. Awesome race!

    I loved that race! Was kinda bummed they switched it to a night half marathon, but whatevs =) I just wanted to comment though, because I was working at Disney back when you ran this race and I swear I remember seeing those shirts you guys were wearing! I worked at Epcot and we cheered people as they ran past Guest Relations by Spaceship Earth!!

    I saw your Instagram TBT today and decided to see if you had a race recap of this race. It sounds like a lot of fun. I love hearing that the parking closed at 6:15. That seems so late now for a Disney race.
