Disneyland Dumbo Double Dare Weekend - Part 1
Friday was a busy day with a trip down to Disneyland to get race bibs and shirts. With the exception of a parking fiasco the pick up went well and I was back home in time for Robb and I to attend an engagement party. Then after the party back down to Anaheim and in bed by 12:30 I think it was. Then up bright and early to meet our friends and get our Mickey Mouse Club shirts.
It was already quite warm the minute we stepped outside the hotel room. We knew this would be a tough day weather wise so we decided to stick together for the 10k. This course was primarily inside the parks which makes it fun and the time fly. Humidity was brutal and by the end of the run our shirts were soaked. It was the slowest 10k for me but I have to say quite fun and that’s what it is all about.
After the 10k some of decided to meet up after we cleaned up for some breakfast. Then we were off to the expo to get 1 day Park Hopper passes to spend time at Disneyland and California Adventure. I have to say I had a great time exploring the parks and going on some rides that I hadn’t been on before. Tower of Terror was awesome, Splash Mountain fun and slightly wet too, Raiders of the Lost Arc bumpy and fun, Jungle Cruise funny due to our tour guide, Train Ride around the park, Radiator Springs Car ride was fast, and the best, Grizzly Rapids was even wetter. We even had a nice stop at a “winery” for a glass of wine. So fun. Tired feet. Should make for an interesting Half Marathon………
