Disneyland Half Marathon 2010!

We did it! Sunday was the 1/2 marathon. Got no sleep; awake every 1/2 hour, was out of the house at 4:15 AM, out the gate at 6:20ish, (yes, our corral was in the back) and off we went! I'm thrilled to announce that none of us died, fell, or hurt too terribly bad afterward. It was so much fun. Disney had placements of entertainment all throughout the route and if that didn't encourage you to keep going, the people screaming your name as you went, did! (I wondered why our first names were on the bibs!)
My time wasn't that great, but I made it. I wore a shirt that said; "If found on ground, please drag across finish line." I seriously didn't think I could do this. I averaged a 13 minute mile. Hadn't really trained much. Hadn't run in over a month... But if I could do this, you can too. Anyone can. And it's definitely something I will do again!

Thirteen miles plus one tenth. Go Runners Go!
