runDisney Race Expo

Before I start the recap of the race events this past weekend, I just want to say that…I DID IT!!

I am proud to say that I am now a two-time half marathon finisher!!!

I had a great time running the race. It was even more special because I ran it with friends and that we got to hangout at Disneyland doing one of our favorite things to do…running!

Our race weekend started at the race expo, which was held at Disneyland Hotel.

We went early to avoid the crowds later in the day. The area where we picked up our race bib was separate from the expo. It was very organized, easy to maneuver and well marked.

Next door was the expo and it was buzzing with excitement.

The race was geared towards women so there were a lot of moms with their families at the expo.

After we picked up our t-shirts, we walked around and grabbed some samples.

We stopped and listened to Jeff Galloway talk and give advice about running and fueling.

Before leaving the expo, I tried on a few sweatybands and decided to purchase one. These headbands keep the sweat away from your face, but I bought mostly because it kept my thick hair in place and it was stylish.

There are about 20 booths/vendors at the expo (excluding Disney merchandise, which took up half the ballroom space).

I thought this medal holder funny.
