The ladies of Run All The Races were thrilled when Cigna asked us to a conversation with Laura Flores.  Laura Flores is a Mexican actress, hostess and singer currently working with Telemundo.  She joined us at the 2016 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend as a proud partner with Cigna en Espanol.

As part of her Cigna en Espanol partnership, Laura served as an Achilles International guide for Richard Aragon during the Disneyland 5K as well as running the Disneyland 10K with 2 of her children.

We sat down with Laura after the 5K and learned how this star keeps herself and her family happy and healthy and Run Disney ready…
