Cheering at the 2012 Walt Disney World Marathon

9 Jan

Despite knowing that I’d be awfully sad to see anyone running the WDW Marathon and that I had to drop out due to injuries, I joined the lululemon cheer squad on marathon day to support my friends running the race. I was feeling sick yesterday morning, so I showed up about two and half hours late, but I got to see all of my friends who were running. We were set up at Mile 24.5, a perfect place to be as runners need that last push to finish strong.

Some scenes from yesterday’s race…





Healthy Ashley! Running a marathon 3 months post-pelvic fracture= such an accomplishment!






83 days until I can register for the 2013 WDW Marathon!

Speaking of running, if you’re in the Orlando area and looking for a run club, lululemon is starting a run club. If you’re interested, email me at for the details.

    Cheering at marathons is the new running at marathons! (well, not really, but since I’m not a runner, I’ve learned to LOVE cheering on friends and strangers alike!) Looks like fun.

    You all were such a great burst of energy! And mad props to the Millenia Lulu team member who remembered my name after helping me pick out a race outfit and yelled it out. Holy crap, that’s amazing customer service!
