2015 Never Land 5K

While my pictures aren't always great some of these will be pretty blurry.  It rained through the majority oft the race - nothing drastic, just light rain that made things a bit wet.  The weather may not have been perfect, but this is still my favorite runDisney 5K - starting on Main Street in the dark, no assigned corrals and a ton of fun!

No assigned corrals for this race so I'm pretty close to the front of corral A.

I was lucky enough to be standing next to these four as they prepared for the race.  The young girl in the green shirt was a Make A Wish participant and the others were there supporting her through the 5K.  It was really moving watching them all get ready and I hope they had a great race.

The announcers were dressed as "Bobbies" and were looking for the Darlings since Hook had captured them.

I know it's a horrible picture, but that green spot is Tinker Bell flying.  This is one race that she flies for and she goes back and forth and it is a lot of fun to watch.

We started just off Main Street and they let the confetti fly to send us off

Believe it or not I'm somewhere in this picture, just not sure where

The third shift custodians were out across from It's a Small World and they were thanking us - but I thanked them as I went by

During the race, the participants were encouraged to crow each time Peter Pan's shadow was spotted.  Let me tell you there was a lot of crowing and there were a lot of Peter Pan shadows on the course.

This time we were congratulated by the custodians - so cool

Will there be pirates ahead?  There were a lot of pirates out and about in Disneyland.  In fact, I even saw Smee and Captain Hook out there...

I wonder if Peter is hearing all the crowing and if he knows his shadow is flying alone

Is Peter fighting Hook?

This pirate was out on the course and joking with runners as they passed.  He found himself quite hilarious

Another joking pirate.  He was also having fun with runners

Not sure what I'm grinning about - probably the silliness of walking around the parks in the rain

The crowded mess that was just beyond the finish line.  Medals, water, Powerade and snack boxes in a very tight area
