    Talking First Trip Report!!! Disneyland 5K Run!!!

    This is my first trip report, I hope you like it!

    As most of you all know this past Saturday, August 30 was the Disneyland 5K run. This was the second time I was able to participate in this event, and again I had a great time. I apologize in advance that some pictures came out blurry. It is hard to take pictures while running.

    SPOILER WARNING….. You will see some photos from backstage that we were able to run around.

    The race started at 7 in the morning. As you can tell it was a cloudy day. Great weather to run in.



    A couple of photos while walking to the start line in the Timon Lot.





    The race started exactly at 7 am. The first part of the course was running the tram route from the Timon Lot to the entrance of Disneyland.





    We soon entered Disneyland were CM were cheering us on.



    We entered on the right side of the entrance.



    As soon as we got on Main Street we caught our first characters cheering us on. It was Daisy and Donald.



    Also they had different float from the Parade of Dreams out on the course in Disneyland.

    Here is the first float that we saw.



    They we made a right into the first backstage area that we were able to run in. We entered the backstage where the POD enters and exit from Main Street.

    Here are some random photos from backstage.









    Look like Space Mountain need a paint job.



    We soon exited the backstage and ended up in Tomorrowland.







    The route soon made it way past Nemo, where they were out to greet us.





    We then made a right turn to run up the Tomorrowland side of the Matterhorn where we finally saw the first mile marker.



    Coming up Mile 2…. Stayed tune!
