    We're guessing this isn't the kind of holiday Suzy Favor Hamilton had in mind.

    Just one day after the former U.S. Olympic runner admitted to secretly being a Vegas escort, E! News confirms that the all-star athlete will not be participating in the Disneyland Half Marathon, were she was scheduled to speak. 

    Hamilton spoke at the Disneyland Half Marathon last August in addition to appearing at the Princess Half Marathon in February. Disney tells E! News that despite the canceled appearances, no formal contract has been severed, as Hamilton "was only an invited guest and she was never paid or acting as a spokesperson for Disney."

    All the details on Suzy's secret life

    News that Hamilton is on the outs with the kid-friendly company comes on the heels of the 44-year-old married mother's shocking admission that she moonlighted as a Vegas sex worker.

    "I realize I have made highly irrational choices and I take full responsibility for them. I am not a victim here and knew what I was doing," she tweeted after being outing by The Smoking Gun, while also apologizing to fans, friends and family. "I cannot emphasize enough how sorry I am to anyone I have hurt as a result of my actions and greatly appreciate the support from family those closest to me. I fully intend to make amends and get back to being a good mother, wife, daughter and friend." 

    The Competitor Group, which put on the Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Stiletto Dash that Hamilton participated in last year, told E! News that they are "shocked, embarrassed and deeply saddened" by the news that she "lived a double life."

    "Admittedly this was a part of a secret life that she did not share with those, like us, that she worked with in her capacity as a former world-class athlete."
