After my long run yesterday, I headed over to Anaheim to pick up my bib and race packet.
I was thrilled to be able to meet up with Brenda from Running While Chunky at the race expo.
I also picked up a Disneyland Half Marathon 2011 Disney Vinylmation so Buzz and Rex have a new friend.
Since I've been struggling with sleep deprivation lately, I opted to get as much sleep as possible even if it meant a late start.
I ran into another Sole Runner, Jonathan, while in line for the porta-potties. He was wearing an awesome Little Green Men shirt and matching visor.
They kicked the race off with the requisite Star Spangled Banner and some fireworks.
Mickey and Minnie Mouse were also at the Starting Line to wave us into the race.
The morning was also humid and I started sweating profusely.
Once we exited the parks, I put on some music to keep myself motivated.
I was concerned the course would be completely flat but there were some hills to hold my interest.
I started slowing down towards the end and I had to really dig deep to push myself. I was determined to stay under a 12:00 mile.
I'm interested to see how my legs feel tomorrow morning on my last long ride with Lexa before Tour DaVita after doing a little over 14 miles on Saturday and racing today.
