This Friday Foto is not just one picture, but an entire slideshow in honor of an exciting announcement.

I’m running the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon on November 9!

It’s a very special race for me. It was my first runDisney race, and the place where my husband, Phil, popped the question in 2011. It happened after the race during the Finish Line Party at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. You can read the whole story here.

Two years later, we’re returning to the scene of the crime as newlyweds.

We plan to run the 10 p.m. start race—in costume, of course—and then party the night away wining, dining, and Epcot attraction riding.

In 2011, we stayed until the party closed at 3 a.m. to celebrate our engagement. We were so giddy we took a silly photo in every single country around the World Showcase. Here is the slideshow to prove it.

This year, the party goes until 4 a.m. I already can’t wait! The Finish Line Party at Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon is, without contest, my favorite race after party I’ve ever been to. Epcot, here I come!

runDisney is providing me with complimentary race entries, hotel, park tickets, and some meals for the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon. But as always, all opinions are purely my own. For more information read my Disclosure Policy.
