Sunday’s conditions were ideal for the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon, where runners tested their endurance in the 13.1-mile race. Along the way, runners came across several sightings of Disney characters, including Kronk from “The Emperor’s New Groove.”
The half marathon was especially sweet for New Jersey runner Megan Curham, who not only beat all the women on the field to the finish line, but also all the men, doubling the same feat she achieved in the Disney Wine & Dine’s last Half Marathon. 2019.
