  • DUCK44 & 13.1 miles(pics)

    Woke up at 4am and walked to the Start line. I read it was already 78 degrees at 6am.

    Red Flag warning was in effect.


    Lots of time to kill before the race. Must have visited the port-a-pottie 5 times.

    We saw the funniest thing when one guy tried to stretch on a plactic fence and got all caught in it. If that was you, thanks for the laugh at 5am.


    6am: fireworks and race starts(sorry, no pics of fireworks)



    Mr Ed!

    And for anyone who was there, you had to love the Mayor's cheesy joke.
    Reminded me of Shooter McGavin in Happy Gilmore giving the David Hasselhof joke. Courtesy laughter and all.


    Mile 1 by Candy Cane Inn


    Just before entering DCA





    All the workers did a great job. They even had a guy warning about the incline here. He got lightheartedly heckeld by the runners.


    Slapped sweaty high fives to every character I could




    More to come...........

        Out of the parks and into the scenic streets of Anaheim.


        Ball Rd


        Parking lot of Angel Stadium had tons of cub scouts and their parents. One of the best parts of the run for me. At a time when the legs are screaming those kids provided a much needed boost and every one was jumping up and down screaming their heads off. Very very cool. Thanks




        Angel Stadium. Had the urge to dive into home plate.

          After a boring but difficult run back to the parks we entered DCA again and came out next to La Brea Bakery. Took a left and through Downtown Disney to the finish at Disneyland Hotel.




          I didn't feel a thing during the final push. All the people cheering erased the pain(which did set in later).
          Ran up behind a guy who was running in memory of his dad. He wrote the date of his passing on the back of his t-shirt. Gave him a pat on the back, congratulated him and we both had a strong finish.




          Walking back rough. Snapped this going back to hotel.


          Want to thank every Cast Member, family member of any runner, volunteers and every other person who took the time to wake up early and cheer on the runners. It really makes a difference.
          Thanks again
          Can't wait to do it next year.



          ...and thank you beer at Cove Bar

                Wow, great pictures! Congratulations on such a great run. The end made me tear up a little.

                I've wanted to do this for a couple of years, now I really want to make it happen.

                  Good for you Duck!

                  Darn good set up they have. Running through Disneyland and Anaheim Stadium is awesome. I hope the weatherman gives you a break next year.
