Good morning! Soooo tired and sore. Matt and Nancy were awesome. Both finished and medaled. My legs cramped up at mile 10 and had to slow down. Fell behind pace and was swept, so bummed. Learned a lot yesterday of the strategy of half marathons. If we ever do another one will be better prepared and in better shape. Nancy and Matt were able to complete the race with virtually no training. And I'm sure Goofygal did it my sure will power. I am so proud of her. The race was so much fun, lots of characters and things to see. One pix is backside of Cars Land. Other pic there was Woody on a woody car. Had a mile of vintage cars to run thru. Also ran thru Angel Stadium, so cool. They had mile markers and we stopped to take pic at each one. Hope everyone enjoying their weekend!

This was quite the experience! I have no idea how I managed to finish. Sheer willpower. The pace people would catch up to me, so I had to run a minute, walk four to stay ahead. My official time was 3:36:48. Could hardly walk the rest of the day. I'm amazed I actually feel better today, but still sore legs. Think it's 5 or 10k tops for any future events! - goofygal  11971.6 #7 10:18AM
Wow! I am proud of you guys!!! I want to do next years! I've gotta have that gold D!! - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1191.2 #159 12:59PM

I'm proud of all of you! You put forth a great effort so congrats! I think you would have been a little better prepared if you loaded up on Beverly just before the race! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #24 8:42AM
Agreed, funny thing yesterday, at the water stations I was wishing for a Bev! - jacdanfan  12348.5 #6 9:34AM
Congratulations to Nancy & Matt! You guys did amazing!!! Gary, I'm afraid I'd be with you. I can walk all day, but I just don't think I could keep up with required pace. It sounds like you made an amazing effort. If you ever decide to attempt this again, you'll know what to expect and I know you'll make it to the finish line! Congratulations to you all!!! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1454.1 #3 8:47AM
Thanks. I can walk all day too. We did a walk/run schedule and were doing great. Unfortunately we were in the last corral and there is no extra time left if needed. The 1st corral left 35 minutes before we did. If you are not on exact pace toward the end you're not allowed to finish as they have to open the streets to traffic, which I understand. Can't be on the race course all day. We signed up for the Tink/Neverland 5k in January. Really looking forward to it! - jacdanfan  12348.5 #6 9:33AM
So awesome!! - mrsincredible  1338.4 #4 8:47AM

The next DLR half marathon is the Tinkerbelle in January. The half is already sold out. The 5k may still be available. It was at 80% on Sat. You can probably register for the next labor day marathon in January, maybe Dec. We were able to register in Feb. Good luck! Hope you get to do it, a lot of fun! - jacdanfan  12348.5 #6 4:46AM
