Running Disneyland: Day Three

What a day we had!!  We had a great time running the Disneyland Half Marathon!  Adam came in with a time almost exactly the same as Princess, and I was able to take 6 minutes off my Princess time, even in Minnie ears!  We had some lightheadedness, and some sore knees, but all in all came through just fine. Spent the afternoon recovering with tasty tacos and rum beverages, then back to the room for naps. Dinner was yummy at Catal, and we finished off the day watching the World of Color fireworks from the balcony of our room. Off to San Francisco tomorrow!  
Yes I ran the whole race with those ears!

Mmmm, after race cocktails!

Good Morning, Disneyland: Day Two

Woke up at the crack of dawn, but really 9am our time. Peeked out the balcony and what do we see?  All the 10k finishers coming in!  So neat to see all those runners and hear all the cheering!

We spent a great day in Disney's California Adventure all day!  So ready for the race tomorrow!!
A giant, scary ferris wheel!
Adam discovered a new beer, and I discovered sangria is pretty good, when it's white!

The parade went by as we had dinner in the park, what a nice surprise!
A flight of Godiva Liquors, what a nice end to the day

Disneyland: Day One

Arrived, found our way to Disneyland, checked into the beautiful Grand Californian hotel, and off we went to the Expo. I totally forgot Sean Astin was speaking; had I remembered perhaps The Goonies shirt would not have been my choice! Many volunteers tried to haul me off to watch him speak, but we politely declined.  Had a lovely dinner at Steakhouse 55, settling in to have cocktails on our balcony. Happy vacation, off to a good start!

Celebration of Running Done!

We had a great time at Track Shack's Celebration of Running 5k on Saturday, all three of us made it through.  Definitely easier when there is beer and Krispy Kreme's to run toward at the finish line!  Adam set a personal best for his 5k time, 35:11.  Seth and I finished 46:32 and 46:31.  We ran along with Staci Baker from WHMH for a ways, and Seth had his very own cheering squad when we passed a group of Orlando Science Center counselors who were watching the race and recognized him, they cheered him on and that sped him up for a bit!  Here's a pic of us with our finisher medals, Adam and I are ready to conquer the Disneyland Half in 2 weeks!!
