I've applied every year, and never made it past round 1. I (foolishly) applied for the runDisney one this year - and I know that I won't get it. I'm fairly certain that my last runDisney event is too far in the past, and the marathon in 2013 won't count. Plus, it's the Moms Panel, and runDisney seems to be more and more focused on female runners.

All runners are equal. Some however, are apparently more equal than others.

Is there a pill for this condition or do I just keep up the cycle of going to Disney

I have to agree with that, I hope they have more for men in the coming years. Maybe RunDisney could do a prince run.

I don't think they will ever do anything tailored specifically for men. I think MW, the DL Half, EE Challenge and Wine and Dine are all gender neutral but the primary shirts are mens fit and so I'd guess they count them as mens events.

I am trying to get DW to run the princess in 2013 and will run it with her as a prince if she runs.

True, but I can dream, good luck with DW. Finally got mine to join me for ToT and W&D

I'd buy that argument if runDisney weren't constantly showing pics of (almost) only women runners. I think runDisney just figures that men will run a few of those events anyway, but they really want to draw as many women runners as possible.

After all, I have to drink around the world showcase (twice) before I am even in the ballpark for one of those Disney purses they sell out of during marathon weekend.

ToT
