As anyone who has ever run a Disney race before can attest, this half marathon is like no other. Celebrating women’s health and wellness, the race had over 17,000 runners, most of whom were decked out in princess garb. A few men decided to dress up as well; there were princes, frog princes, and even some male Cinderellas. The bottom line is that this could very well be the most fun 13.1 mile race that anyone has ever run!
Even though many runners donned funny costumes, as the lone dribbler, I stood out in the pack. From the time the fireworks blasted as the race started, runners snapped photos of me, asked what I was dribbling for, some told me I was crazy, and others called out that I was their hero. I received so much positive attention for Dribble the World during that 13.1 miles, and it is truly inspiring to me what a basketball can do. As I crossed the finish line, I was so overjoyed at what I had accomplished, but even more that I did it for others. Thank you to everyone who read my story and offered their support. Your generosity is being felt across the nation and around the globe.
