5K, 10K & HALF MARATHON #101
Race Name: The Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend
Location: Anaheim, CA
This is where is all started back on September 2nd, 2012. The Disneyland Half was my first race...ever! This year I ran the half for the 4th time & for the 2nd year I ran the 10K, 5K & also earned the Dumbo Double Dare challenge medal!
5K on Friday
10K on Saturday
Half Marathon on Sunday
All races start at 5:30am so get ready for consecutive EARLY wake up calls! runDisney races are lots of fun with many runners showing off creative costumes! All race courses go through the Disney parks, giving runners the opportunity to stop for pictures with characters or anything else that is Disney (World of Color, Castle, etc.)...
The half offers entertainment in the streets of Anaheim including classic cars, cheerleaders, Mexican Mariachi with dancers, and more! The half also runs inside the Angels Stadium!
The finish line always has Disney characters give high fives to runners right before completing the race!
This year the theme of the 10K was villains & the entire weekend was focused on "anniversaries" (the race's 10th anniversary & Disneyland's 60th anniversary).
My favorite costume the entire weekend was by Karen Chu @momopeche on IG. She dressed up as a giant churro for the 10K. I was running with my Dapper Dans team when she ran by us! I ran up to her and told her I wanted a picture of me dry humping her after the race. She waited for me after the race, but unfortunately she had left by the time my costume team finished (too many pictures??) lol. I will forever desire a picture of me needing nothing else in life but a giant churro to dry hump. :-)
Here are many of the weekend's pictures...enjoy... :-)
That's all for the 2015 Disneyland Half Marathon weekend! So happy to run it for the 4th consecutive year! On to the next race...
