‘Hey, That’s Sean Astin’ at the Tinker Bell Half Marathon at Disneyland Resort

The whispers in the crowd were true – that was Sean Astin at the Never Land Family Fun Run 5K and Tinker Bell Half Marathon at Disneyland Resort this past weekend. This was the third runDisney half marathon the star of The Goonies, Rudy and The Lord of the Rings, participated in. Last year Astin ran both the inaugural Tinker Bell Half Marathon and the Disneyland Half Marathon.

Not only does Astin love runDisney events but also loves the runners that participate. He was very generous with his time at the races and at the expo for photos, autographs and entertaining the crowd. Much to my surprise he even showed up in “character” for the 5K wearing Tinker Bell wings and a sparkle skirt. Now, he may deny that fact in public, but the video below has the evidence.

As runners we run for different reasons. Astin runs for what he calls #Run3rd. What that means is he runs first for himself, second for his family and third for anyone that tweets him and asks for a special run dedication.

I think anyone having the chance to meet him last weekend will agree, Sean Astin is a great guy, loves running and loves runDisney. But judge for yourself, let him tell you in his own words.
