It’s finally time for our second biggest race of the year! Of course our first marathon at the end of this year is the biggest for us, but since we are traveling to California TODAY and running in the Disneyland Half Marathon on Sunday this is definitely the runner up!
We could not be more excited for this race, what we’ll see on the course and just the course itself! From the event website – “The course for this magical event will take runners from the Disney California Adventure™ Park, celebrating California’s storied past and exciting future, to theDisneyland® Park where you will explore the fantastic “lands” of nostalgia, color and delight. Then it is on to the scenic streets of Anaheim, past the Honda Center, home of the Anaheim Ducks, along the Santa Ana Trail overlooking the Santa Ana River, through Angel Stadium, home of the MLB’s Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and then past Disney’s Paradise Pier® Hotel and the Disneyland® Hotel for an exciting finish of the Happiest Race on Earth!”
We’ll be those girls out on the course wearing matching outfits! Woohoo go Life is a Run! 🙂 Have I mentioned we are excited? This week we’ve chatted with some fellow runners who will be out there doing the same race and even with all the info they’ve given us I am confident this race will be way more than we can even expect. What if this race runs us for others? Guess we’ll just have to make yearly trips to the Disney theme parks for races! 🙂
Kind of sad that we are all excited about the cooler weather in California and Texas is actually getting a bit of a break from the heat while we are gone. See –
Oh well! It will still be awesome!
The goal for this race is to beat our White Rock 2010 half marathon times although we won’t be disappointed if we get caught up with our surroundings, take some pictures and therefore add a couple of minutes to our time. Then we can always come back next year and do it again right? 🙂
Kind of a short blog post from us – we reserve the right to overshare about our trip when we get back! 🙂
