On Friday, January 6th, I was fortunate to be able to be a part of Cigna’s Blogger Meet-up at the WDW Marathon Weekend. This was my third blogger meet-up event with Cigna and I’ve really had a great time each year.
Cigna is the title sponsor of the 2017 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. Cigna has a mission to help people improve their health, well-being and sense of security. The company works with runDisney through the WDW Marathon Weekend to aid runners of all ages achieve fitness milestones and goals through running a 5k, 10k, half marathon or marathon. It’s about celebrating efforts to adopt a healthy lifestyle.
This year’s blogger meet-up was all about Cigna’s Great Race. It was a team versus team fun adventure through Disney’s Hollywood Studios. First, we enjoyed a healthy lunch, then Cigna broke us up into teams. We had an hour and a half to solve puzzles, complete activities, and generally keep moving. It was basically Cigna’s version of the Amazing Race.
I was in Team Mickey, and we had a lot of fun doing this race challenge. There were clues to locate for some portions of the challenge meaning we had to work together to come up with the solutions. It took both our brains and bodies to complete each task. Every part of the Great Race was about incorporating your health knowledge as well as fitness to finish the race.
Our team of seven learned a lot about health and each other through this challenge. I love how teamwork makes a health and fitness journey easier. The support of one another and using each person’s strengths on particular clues or puzzles helped us through each test of the race.
In the end, Team Mickey didn’t take home the winning medal, but we did come away having a lot of fun. We were all winners though, because when you make healthy living a priority, your life is so much better.
Thanks again to Cigna for the invite to the meet-up, it truly was a highlight of my Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend this year.
