In just 12 short hours, I will be on my way to the airport--heading out to the Disneyland Half Marathon! I could not be more excited! I am meeting my running besties for a fun girls weekend. I also have some work to do while I am there. First, I have to take lots and lots of pictures of the brand new Cars Land is Disney's California Adventure for my travel agency's website. Also, I am working the Expo on Saturday morning at the SparkleSkirts booth. Can these things really be considered work? Taking pictures at the happiest place on Earth and helping ladies try on the best running skirts out there? Probably not.
The Disneyland Half Marathon is Sunday morning. This will be my second runDisney half. I am expecting the really early morning to be easier since it is on the west coast. I love races on the west coast--a 3 am wake call feels like 6 am due to the time change. I am a Californian a heart I guess. I am also stoked to get my Coast to Coast medal. runDisney gives a special medal to runners who run a race in Walt Disney World and Disneyland in the same calendar year. Since I did the Princess, the Disneyland half will qualify me for this honor.
I can't wait to see all of the changes to Disney's California Adventure. So many changes have been made since I was there last year. Cars Land is finished. The park entrance is completely different. I am so excited to see it. The Disneyland Hotel is also all new. The brand new pool looks amazing, with a slide featuring the park's original monorail. I also can't wait to be in Disneyland again. It is the park that Walt build. Disney World was his dream, but he never got to put that dream into action. Disneyland is all Walt. You can feel his spirit as you walk down Main Street.
