Actress Ashley Eckstein to Train for runDisney Doctor Strange 10K

You may know Ashley Eckstein as the voice of Ahsoka Tano on "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and "Star Wars Rebels" as well as other popular Disney characters, but she's also the founder of a fangirl fashion company and lifestyle brand, Her Universe. With her busy schedule, fitness is still a priority in her life. Ashley will be participating in her first runDisney event – the Doctor Strange 10K during Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend at Disneyland Resort this November.

runDisney had the opportunity (and pleasure) of catching up with Ashley to learn about how she is preparing for her first race. She is familiar with runDisney from hearing fans' personal stories and seeing photos through social media. An active lifestyle is important in Ashley's household – her husband is a professional athlete and they enjoy working out together. She believes having a race to train for and look forward to will give her a goal to strive for. Ashley is particularly excited about the theme being Doctor Strange for the 10K and can't wait to see the movie!

As for fashion advice to fellow runners, Ashley says, "Comfort is key, but you should also have fun with your outfit. Be creative, make it your own and let your inner super hero shine!"

For her own race ensemble Ashley is debating between wearing an outfit inspired by Captain America or Black Widow for her first event. Stay tuned as we follow Ashley's journey from training to her costume design!
