2014 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend

Post by NaCler » Aug Tue 12, 2014 9:12 pm

Hard to believe that this event is only about 19 days away. H, his wife and I are lucky enough to be participating in the Half Marathon this year in order to receive our Coast to Coast medals. Will anyone else be there?

Also, we may be wandering around the parks on the 30th and the 1st, so if you are around, please let us know. Yes, even you Wizzard.

Best of luck ~ I know you will simply fly around the course without the Florida heat and humidity you are used to running in at home! I hope you are able to meet up with some Cali Subbers....even Wizzard :lol:

Unfortunately sleepy, I am not signed up for any event in January. However, I may be able to appear down there that weekend for a meet up. There are a few races around here I want to try out in January.

So cool you will be able to make the last leg of the flight together! You have all put a lot of work into getting to this point so I hope you truly have a great race experience and have lots of fun in the parks! I'll be cheering you on in spirit and likely on facebook :lol:

H, you know I'm ready for it mentality, just wish the physically would have caught up, but I'm ready either way. I didn't get my 10 mile long run in two weeks ago due to sickness, so I'm upset about that. But I did my final short training run this morning, so the next time I run will be in Disneyland!

Just checked the weather and it looks like the high is 88 and low is 66 with no rain!

I'm off tomorrow for final preparations and fly out Thursday morning. Can't wait to meet up in Denver and go the rest of the way with my bro and his awesome wife.

Plan now is Expo on Sat, run and DCA on Sunday, then DL all day Monday. Fly back Tuesday.

It should be an awesome trip. I plan on taking a camera and embarassing H by taking pictures of everything. Haha... There will definitely be a trip report or two from this one.

Thanks for the support everyone.

What are you doing on Friday? Don't forget to get lots of sleep with the 3 hour time difference! Take lots, and lot, and lots of pictures!! And don't forget the selfies ;) H was really starting to like those I think :lol:
Please forgive my Dory-like tendencies, but I forget, is the whole NaCler clan going or just you and your lovely wife? I know the kids are already back in school so I couldn't remember if they were going too or not.

Amy - NONE of the NaCler clan is going with me on this trip! It's a brothers trip (well... and H's wife). I offered to have my wife go with us but she is a teacher and thought it wouldn't be right leaving right after the school year started. Plus, she's not that big a Disney fan, so going to DL does nothing for her.

Ah, sounds like fun ~ I can see where it might be difficult for a teacher to get away this early in the school year, although I can't imagine how anyone would not be excited about going to DL!

Let's play pretend for a minute... Pretend that a school is under no pressure from anyone to perform. Pretend that within that school, administrators don't mind if teachers miss days for a vacation, and pretend that teachers don't have to prepare mountains of work for their cherubs to do when they're gone, so they stay busy and don't get into mischief. Even when all of that is true, teachers don't like to miss because then their kids fall behind.

And since NONE of that is true... :)

I still don't understand how she wouldn't be that much of a Disney fan, though. I think I'd go. Heck, I know I'd go. When I was yet in the classroom, I probably wouldn't have worried about missing 2 days. A week would have been an entirely different story.

Not really sure what I was getting at. Where's the caffeine?
