Joe and Theresa's 6th Disneyland Half Marathon

Welcome to the 2011 Disneyland Half Marathon

Starting this year in Corral B.  We're all excited and ready to run.  My wife and I are both Legacy Runners, meaning we've done this for 6 years in a row now. 


From Corral B this is the best view you have of the stage.


At the starting line!  Let's run!




And new we start to see characters.  Here's the guys from TRON.


Today is going to be a great day!  Phineas and Ferb and the Fireside girls.  Oh... there you are Perry.


Dug and Russell from Up, plus Joe and Theresa from Redondo






Princesses!


Found you Pascal!


More Princesses!


A little blurry.  I feel a dark force must have been at work.


These are not the runners you're looking for.  Move along. 


I think a little of the good luck rubbed off on me.


The Three Fairies, Flora Fauna and Merryweather, plus Aurora where all on the Carrousel.






Evil Maleficent asking why we aren't running




Gotta love the castle photos




The Columbia was parked out front of pirates.


Running is what Tiggers like best. 




Almost there...  not quite.  About 9 miles to go.




The Disneyland Railroad train parked backstage


More floats backstage.


I love all these extra things you can see on these backstage roads.  Lots of ride vehicles and props.


There's not a whole lot to see on the streets of Anaheim, but there's a couple things.  This Mexican restaurant always goes all out each year with Elaborate Costumes, Dancers, and music.  There's also a bunch of cheerleaders, boy scout troops, school bands, hula dancers.


Into Angel's stadium




Heading out to the warning track of the field.




It's Genie! 


Mike Wazowski!


The finish line is in site! 


And here we are at home with our medals!  Legacy runners for 6 years now.
