I ran the Star Wars 10k on January 16, 2016 as Minnie Stormtrooper! My friend, Angela and I, raised money for Team Muscle Makers to support research and awareness for a rare type of muscular dystrophy, Ullrich Congenital Muscular Dystrophy.
As usual, with a 5:30 am start, I was at the park at about 3:45 am to give myself enough time to park and get my things together. I walked to the meet-up area and got this cool photo! I was reaching for the light saber and just had to use the force!
I met up with Team Muscle Makers and we took our team photo!
I got to see my friend, Emelia!
We got into our corral and listened to the announcers and watched the skit.
Our first stop was Boba Fett!
I love Yoda!
I ran into my friend, Mary Ann!
We ran through the castle!
We wanted to get a photo with Chewy but the line was closed. Bummer! On the other hand, Small World looked so pretty!
We don’t always get to run by Indian Jones and the Jungle Cruise so this was a treat!
We ran back through Main Street.
We ran through the front of the Disneyland to California Adventure!
The BB-8 line was a 45 minute wait with a chance of getting swept so we didn’t risk it. We got a quick selfie from afar. Tomorrow, our goal would be to run fast and get in the Chewy line and then the BB-8 line. We hoped they’d be out the next day, too.
I remembered this couple from last year! They had the best costumes last year but this year, these types of costumes were banned.
We got to take a selfie with R2! I love him!
This group was rowdy, loud and full of energy! They were amazing!
It was such a fun course and an awesome race! We got photos and made an important photo goal for the next day!
The medal was amazing, as usual! After the race, we got breakfast and relaxed. I rested for a bit and then had the Team Muscle Makers luncheon next! Fun, fun, fun!
Your path, your pace, Tam
