    5k Pics (Run along with me....)

    Disclaimer - There are some backstage pics. These pics were only taken to share the run route with those that are interested.

    I used my point and click camera with the uber shaky attachment (I was running when I took all of these) so sorry.



    Race starting point was at the familiar TRAM area. We arrived early.




    The crowd of 4000 people building. Taken from 3 feet off the starting line.


    Dapper Dans doing a great job of entertaining.


    Mickey and Minnie listening to the Honorary Mayor's spiel.



    Go!! (After the first "driver your turn is clear point")


    Left side of TRAM area (Load area 4)


    Running into DCA (Between La Brea Bakery and Soarin)



    Following Tinker Bell (HE got a lot of smiles)


    HSM!!!


    Running toward and into Bugsland



    Heading backstage between Heimlich and Tuck and Roll.




    Back out to Sunshine Plaza where Pixar Parade starts and on to Hollywood Blvd. Greeted by Little Einsteins gang.

    Glad they were here if I collapsed..



    2 Miles!! whoo hoo. (Orbitron)


    Through the HUB and Castle... past Mary and Burt (Bert?) and Dumbo



    Entering Backstage next to Small World.



    KC Holliday and I think Fred Gurley right behind.



    Behind Toontown



    Coming back in next to Minnie's House.


    Leaving Toontown and going backstage again behind Storybook and Casey Jr.


    Casey Jr Rehab...


    The Tunnel.....

    Yup... its a run / walk. I believe they recommend at least a 15 min per mile pace. Lots of folks with little ones (strollers / wagons not allowed) walking and even newborn/toddlers in backpack-type carriers.
