A Disney 10K Experience


WALT DISNEY WORLD – There are certain experiences people only dream about having, but those dreams are something that Ms. Erica Herrera makes a reality. Ms. Herrera is constantly having new experiences, always ones that will stay in her memory forever. This time, a Disney 10k was on the itinerary. 

The experience in general was fun for Ms. Herrera. She trained for about 4 months and then got up at 3:00 in the morning and started running at 4:00. The experience was one of many for Ms. Herrera. She mentioned that she has been to multiple Disney festivities. Some of the things she mentioned going to were the Halloween party, Christmas party, New Year’s Eve party, and all of the EPCOT festivals. 

No experience can be complete without merchandise, Disney ones especially. “I bought a spirit jersey, a shoe ornament, and a pin,” Ms. Herrera shared. Students were also able to see a stuffed animal version of the avocado toast Mike Wazowski from the Disney Munchling collection in her classroom the day after the race, along with the Disney medal she got for doing the race.  

Of course, when you go to Disney you expect to see characters. “I saw Moana, Pocahontas, Esmeralda, Maleficent – we stopped for a picture with her – the Stepsisters from Cinderella, and Mickey,” Ms. Herrera detailed. No Disney trip is complete without Mickey. Being a Rapunzel themed race, Ms. Herrera said, “I was surprised I didn’t see Rapunzel. I was disappointed we didn’t see Maximus. The photo above is a picture of Ms. Herrera and her friend Melinda with Maleficent. Ms. Herrera elaborated that her friend Anna came as well, but just to watch.

Ms. Herrera mentioned that there were age categories in the race. “For women in general it was an 18-year-old who won the race in 45 minutes,” explained Herrera. When asked what the best part of the experience was, she said, “I think being able to train. When I was a kid, I had a lot of health issues, so being healthy enough to train was really encouraging.” So, Ms. Herrera made yet another dream come true!
