Disneyland Half Marathon Expo

speech about run/walking at the Disneyland Half Marathon Expo 2012

As I walked around the Disneyland Half Marathon expo, I thought, “Oh no! I have seen all these things before, and I’ve signed up for most of the races that have booths here. What am I ever going to talk to the blog readers about?”

I hate to tell you that that’s not some fun intro to a “then this amazing thing happened!” turn. I have to admit, it was a pretty uneventful time.

The woman who gave me my packet was a total pro about it. She had that speech down, and could get people in and out of packet pick-up in record time. I wonder what her normal day job is, and what her dreams in life are. She is organized, smart, and quick; I hope she’s doing some awesome stuff with that.

She reminded me that I was getting my Coast to Coast medal, which was a really fun surprise; somehow, I’d completely forgot that that was happening.

There were some special screenings going on of new ABC shows. Unfortunately, I was a big doofus and got there towards the end of the expo, missing all the screening times.

I got to see a sneak peek of January’s marathon medal. Spoiler alert: It says, “All out dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” I love that! I think it’s an excellent quote for a medal, and I can’t wait to get it.

And that’s it! You’ve heard the entire riveting half marathon expo story. We got really rad t-shirts with this race. So, yay for that!

I'd love to hear from you! So whaddya say?
