2015 Dumbo Double Dare - Disneyland 10K

The pictures are a bit grainy and old looking as I was having issues with my phone this morning, but they still convey the "picture!"

There were tons of Marathonfoto photographers in Downtown Disney taking photos on the way to the staging area

The staging area - I didn't stay around to see the whole show today as I wanted to get to my corral

At the front of the corral

Standing in the corral there were no speakers back where we were so we couldn't hear anything that was going on up at the start line. It was sad because we could see the villains on the screen and there was definitely a story line, but we couldn't follow any of it.

So many great costumes during this race. This Magic Mirror was amazing - kudos to him for wearing it for the whole race!

There are bottlenecks and then there was this - the entire race came to a complete stop at this point because the course narrowed so much there was just no room to move forward

I only caught three of the four in this photo, but I loved these costumes

Wish I could have got a good picture of the mile two marker as it said - "It's Only Mile 2," but I apparently missed mile marker one altogether

Marching Band

Loved this group - there was about 10 runners dressed as little green men and they had these little squeak toys that they used as they went along and it was cool to see them altogether

Something new this weekend - signs that were placed prior to a character stop so that runners were aware where a character was going to be located

The combination of future and retro was to amazing

This single amputee was alongside a double amputee and I have to say there's not much in this world that shows the human strength, courage, determination and inspiration than these two men toughing out this course!
