The first race of the weekend was the Captain America 10k, Saturday, November 14, 2015.
I ran for Team Muscle Makers for Ulrich Congenital Muscular Dystrophy. It was awesome to meet up with team members before the race. I signed on to do this race just a month and a half prior when I learned that the team needed to fill spots. I was happy to meet my fundraising goal and be part of the team!

Some team members really got into the Avenger theme! 😉
It was the Captain America 10k so I dressed up as Captain America!
I met up with my good friend, Emelia, beforehand. It’s always good to see Emelia at races!
I headed to my corral and waited. Disney races are always early wake-up calls. I was up at 2:30 am. I left at 3 am. I got to Disneyland at 3:40 am, parked and rested. We had our team photo at 4:25 am. I checked my gear, went to the porta potty and was in the corral at 5:00 am. The race started at 5:30 am.
We were kept entertained by the race announcers. Captain America made an appearance, too!
I ran with my friend, Angela, and we had a great time running and taking photos!
Cars Land was all decked out for the holidays! I miss Disneyland so much!
My friend, Kiley, looked great as Captain Elsa! I loved the mash-up!
Other runners looked awesome, too!
We ran through California Adventure and then headed to Disneyland!
We had so much fun taking photos and just catching up!
The best part was running through the castle!
We ran back toward Pirates of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion after that. Then we ran through the Winnie the Pooh area.
The finish line!
We got our medals and refreshments.
Disney does everything so well! I’ve always loved that we get our goodies in a box.
The course was great and we just took our time and had fun! Angela and I went to get breakfast afterward, our tradition!
On the way back to the car, I got to check out the kids’ races. So cute!
The team lunch was in the afternoon and the Avenger Half Marathon the next day! Avengers assemble!
