I flew across the country, then I flew 13.1 miles through Anaheim!
A whirlwind weekend of food, fun and running brought me to the Happiest Place on Earth for the second time in a year. I planned to visit with friends, cheer my dear Heather as she tackled runDisney’s inaugural Tinker Bell 10K and run the Tinker Bell Half Marathon.
My time in LA zipped by in a flash. Rather than share my traditional race recap just now, here’s a few of my favorite photos from the weekend. And be sure to tune in Friday, when Heather shares her adventures running the Tink 10K for Team Lemon!
Heather and I wandered through the expo!
Then we drank our lunch at the Disneyland Hotel
I worked at the Sparkle Athletic booth on Friday with Kelly (Tink!)
We watched the sun set at the pier at Huntington Beach Friday night. Then we inhaled a delicious dinner.
Here I pose with Tara at the start of the Tinker Bell 10K. Congrats to Tara for finishing third in her age group, while still stopping for a photo!
Pal Mindy prepares three of her students to run their first-ever 10K. They ROCKED it! Great job girls!
Julie (aka Donald) tackles some runner’s yoga!
Tinker Bells cheer for 10K runners.
Heather and Tony race to the finish. I chased her down to get this pic.
Before I knew it, it was Sunday morning and time to race 13.1 miles. I ran with Kelly and we laughed our way through the course, stopping to pose with all of the characters and finishing in under two hours. I’ll share more about my own race experience later this week.
