Donald Duck and I go way back. Well, not really. But as the honorary face of the Walt Disney World Half Marathon, this feisty member of the “Fab 5” stole my heart. It was the first runDisney race I participated in, after all. He was right there with me as I
limped across crossed the finish line. And he didn’t complain once! While his face is featured on a race medal, that pales in comparison to his other accomplishments. Donald has appeared in more than 200 films, co-hosted the Academy Awards (1958), and even has an asteroid named in his honor. For more fun facts about Donald, check out this article from International Business Times. So, on the 81st anniversary of being Mickey’s faithful friend, I wanted to send a shout out to Donald and all the joy he brought to me on my first WDW race and over the years. Happy Donald Duck Day!
