Okay, I am back to add some more to my trip report.

So, when I left off we had just passed Mile 4. We then continued north on Disneyland Drive and made a right on to Ball Road. There were bands and spectators cheering us on.





The third water station was located between Mile 4 and 5.

Look, itís Lilo and Stitch:


We continued down Ball Road and then made a right onto Anaheim Blvd where we passed Mile Marker 5.


We ran south down Anaheim Blvd and made a left onto Cerritos Ave. There was a Spanish dance group on the corner.


We then made a left on to Lewis Street and made a stop at the Port-O-Potties. This was also where the 4th water station was located as well as a first aid station. The line wasnít too long maybe 2-3 minutes. This was our only bathroom stop. Then we passed mile 6.


We passed a dance group and my aunt ran out and started dancing with them. I didnít get a picture of her though.


We hit Ball Road again and went right. Then it was another right onto State College Blvd and we passed Mile 7.


We ran past some Hula dancers.


We hit Cerritos Ave again and went left. We passed the 5th water station. As we ran under the 57 Freeway we passed Mile 8.


Then we took a right on to Douglas Road. We headed left into the Honda Center parking lot and made our way onto the Santa Ana trail next to the Santa Ana River but there was no water running in it. This part of the course was dirt and it got very dusty and narrow. I was glad we only ran on the trail for a short time. You can see Angeles Stadium in the distance.


We entered into the parking lot of Angeles Stadium. There were people there cheering us on.


We passed mile 9 but I guess I didnít get a picture of it. This is also where they had the 6th water station and they were handing out Cliff shots.

We passed the 15K mark and headed through the tunnel into Angeles Stadium.

Your report is so detailed! I almost feel as if I were running in the half-marathon myself - well, except that I would probably start walking after the first mile

Thanks for taking such great pics during the race

Really loving your report. I'm signed up to run the Disneyland 1/2 marathon in September. I'm really excited.

I think Sarah has forgotten to finish her report.
I'll remind that DD of mine.

We pasted the 6th water stop as we headed into Angeles Stadium. We got to run around the outside of the field.







Look! We're on the jumbotron!





We headed out of the stadium and into the parking lot where the Sweeper Buses were waiting. Luckly we were right on track and were not in danger of getting swept.

Here we passed mile 10 and the 7th water stop.



We headed west on Gene Autry Way, south on Santa Cruz, west on Standford and then north onto Anaheim Way where we passed the 8th water stop and Mile Marker 11.

Now the most I had run during training was 10 miles and this is where I started to lag. No pictures again until Mile 11 beacuse all I wanted to do was finish. I was tired and my feet were starting to hurt.



We continued up Anaheim Way crossing Katella and continued on to Disney Way where we passed the 4th medical tent and the 9th water station.



We were getting close to the finish!

We crossed back on to Disney property.



And made it to Mile 12.



We ran behind where they are now building Cars Land and the Incredibles were still out.



We ran around the outskirts of DCA, over Disneyland Drive, behind the Paradise Pier Hotel, by the Disneyland Hotel and then we could see the finsh line!



I was so done but my Aunt grabbed my hand and made me keep running. She said I couldn't walk across the finish line, I had to run!



We did it!!!

After we crossed the finish line they were handing out bottled water and PowerAid, ice and wet towels but all I wanted was my medal!





Did we really finish in front of this many people?



We then got our pictures taken with our medals.





We made our way through the bag claim tents where we got fruit and bagels.

My mom was waiting for us in the Family Reunion area.





My officials results:

We all headed into DTD. My aunt and I were going back to the hotel to shower and my mom headed into the parks.

This year I plan to take some advil probably around mile 9 or 10 so I can finsih strong. I also plan to use the bag check and check my Crocs so I can change out of the running shoes as soon as I'm done. I felt like I was getting a blister on the bottom of my foot and we still had to walk all the way back to the hotel.

We made it to the shuttle area and sat down on a bench and waited for a bus that never came so we decided to walk back to the Red Lion.

I found out later that the buses were taking an alternate route due to people still running on the streets. My mom had jumped on the ART outside of the hotel earlier and thought she was taking it to Disneyland but then the bus got on the freeway and she started thinking she was headed to the airport or something and was going to miss us finish.

We showered put on our "I Did It" shirts and our medals and headed to meet my mom in Disneyland.

Great job to you and your Aunt for finishing the Half!
And thank you for doing such a detailed trip report! I loved reading it. It really was like being right there, mile by mile. And that is so cool that you got a photo of each mile marker Ė it looks like you kept a really consistent pace. I really want to run the DL Half or the new Tinker Bell Half, but I will have to settle for dreaming and reading trip reports for now

Sarah, I'm so glad you got back on & finished the report! Congrats to you & your aunt!!!! That is so awesome! I wish I could run......blew out knee before I was 20 & running just doesn't seem to be in the cards. I imagine it's easier to do when you have someone running side by side with you.....you can encourage each other thru the process!!!

Love the medals.....what a neat experience!!!
