Do You Want To Run a Marathon? (Parody)

The Disney World Marathon Weekend is finally here!  Good luck to everyone who is participating!


Kellie at Will Run for Ears has a talent for rewriting Disney songs  while training for RunDisney events and she has given us permission to share her latest masterpiece to inspire all of you who are running this weekend, or thinking about running in the future.

Do You Want to Run a Marathon? (sung to the tune of “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?”)

Do you want to run a marathon?
Come on let’s go and train!
I never see you anymore
Run out the door
It’s like I’ve gone away!
We used to be run buddies
And now we’re not
But it’s only a “few” more miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiles
Do you want to run a marathon?
It kinda has to be a marathon…

You: Go away I hate running

Me: OK bye

Do you want to run a marathon?
We’ll run all through Disney World!
I think some company is overdue
I’ve started talking to
myself on my long runs!
(Hang in there me!)
It gets a little lonely
All these stupid miles
Just watching the Garmin tick by!
(16.1, 16.2, 16.3 – how the hell am I only at 16.4?!?!)

I know I’ve been out running
People are wondering where I’ve gone
They say “you can do it!,” and I’m trying to
But it’s so many freaking miles, why aren’t I done?
All I have is the theme parks
Just me and Mickey
Why did I ever register?!?!
