Most of you know that I was not planning to race this race, but for a series of fortunate circumstances I found myself at Disneyland for the very first time!
So rather than stall out and find this post lingering any further ... let's get to the amazing pictures!
|Starting the morning off with my weekend run buddies! |
Thank you Fairy Godmother!

These folks were great! They let me take a picture of their fabulous shirts and they had fun with it to boot!

|It was an amazing morning for a run!|
The neon looked spectacular!
|I was thrilled to finally be racing on Route 66 in Carsland!|
|The morning light was just coming out |
and the trolleys looked so vibrant!
|Look who I found...Mr. runDisneyTV! (@runDisneyTV)|
No one know this would be his last race.
|The Fireside Girls loved that I asked them |
to come front and center!

I love the scale of the California parks.
|Jasmine was totally into blowing kisses.|
|Just a quite morning run at Disneyland!|
|Look who I found! My Neverland friends.|
|My wings were tired and I stopped for a ride!|
|Aurora looks so beautiful with the |
pink castle light behind her!
|Do we have any Little Green Men lovers out there?|
I know a few!
|Oh Cinderella...so far away from home. |
She should get a Coast to Coast medal as well!
|I wish Snow White would have a candy apple for the photo op! Runners would love her even more!|
|Selfie with my It's a Small World friends!|
|A couple of strong girls! |
Maria taught me that pose a couple of visits back.
|So we were about to leave DLR|
and I just did not want to leave the parks!
I ducked into Mickey and Minnie's area
in Toontown for a couple of photos.
|So if I told you the horse would not stop licking me |
what would you say? Salt lick for a horse!
I was hot, sweaty and insanely happy.
|Next up...the streets of Anaheim and the endless sky!|
|I loved the street performers.|
|These girls were so fantastic! |
There moms were all taking our pictures!
|As a Tinker Fairy I could not resist...you know...Tinkering!|
|Shout out to the Clif Team! |
I carry my own Clif Shot Blocks
so I passed on the Clif Shots,
but they were doing a good job!
|Hello Angel's Stadium!|
|The stadium was filled with enthusiastic scouts! |
Talk about a cheer squad!
I just want all of those kids to be inspired to lead active lives!
