We arrived in Anaheim last week and since our hotel wasn't ready for check-in, we went straight to the expo to pick up our race packs. We were delighted to find the unisex shirts were actually quite nice, bought some cool new headbands guaranteed to keep sweat out of our eyes, and won Angels ballcaps. After the expo, we headed to Jack in the Box and Target to stock up on delicious food and buy bottled water and cute new clothes.
|And they'rrrrrrre OFF!...to the Expo|
|After a false start, we end up in the right line and pick up our bibs!|
|I photoshopped out the beer and cheesecake, suckers!|
|Feeling good...for 5am|
|Minnie Mice at the Castle|
|Does this make out butts look FAST?|
|We're only smiling because it's almost over...|
|I can't move out of the finish chute quickly, I need a picture. |
And some aspirin please
|COAST TO COAST BLING!!!|
Post race, we had a quick soak in the hottub before heading to the Angels game for hotdogs, beer and relaxing in the sun. Angels win, and we head back to the park until midnight...then the next day we were at the park from 8am-midnight. Squeezed out every drop of fun, but maybe was a bit too much...I was so sore on the flight home the next day, I had to take the Folkswagon from the gate to customs because I didn't think I could handle the 6 minute walk...
|Post race beer and chili cheese dogs at the Angels game...Angels win!|
|Actually, yes, we DID plan the outfits--Twins game, get it??|
|Fairy Godmother flies coast to coast too!|
|Best. Day. EVER!!!!!|
We had an awesome time, the weather was great, and all the new stuff at Disney was amazing (World of Color, Star Tours, Little Mermaid, Captain EO coming back) and the race was great.
Our New Years resolution was to complete four half marathons in 2011, so we have one to go...
