About a month ago (I’m so sorry for my delay!), I flew out to California to participate in Star Wars: The Light Side race weekend.
I’m not a few fan of Disneyland half marathons but I did decide I was going to run the 10k. The course was entirely on Disney property with about 4 miles being in the parks.
Disclosure: I am a member of New Balance Rewards and cashed in my points for a race bib. (All those shoes at the outlet – yes I have a problem!)
I flew out Friday and landed with just enough time to spare to get to expo before it closed for the evening.
After quickly picking up my shirt and bib, I headed back to my hotel (which was less than a mile from Disney property) and got myself ready for the next day.
Friendly reminder: don’t leave your bib in the car! Yes I totally left my bib in the car and we had to turn back…oops.
After the bib fiasco, we wished each other luck and headed to our separate corrals.
After what left like a long time, we were moving up and then crossing the start!
We covered from Disney roads before heading backstage. Running through the backstage areas are always neat and very nicely themed. Rebel signs were on buildings and we ran through a tunnel which had Darth “breathing” at us.
We entered California Adventure Park by way of Cars Land.
We entered through Toon Town:
I must say no matter the race or destination, the last mile always seems to take FOREVER!
But I finished!
