The 2013 Disneyland Dumbo Double Dare is complete. For those of you curious, the Dumbo Double Dare is a challenge that Disneyland launched this year with the launch of the Disneyland 10k the same weekend as the Disneyland Half Marathon. The challenge was to run the 10k on Saturday and the Half Marathon on Sunday — run both and you complete the Dumbo Double Dare. Sounds fun, right?
I had zero intention on doing either of these races at a PR pace. I wanted to run in costume, take a ton of photos and simply enjoy my time running around the parks with a bunch of other people who wanted to have fun as well. Mission accomplished. I took a ton of photos and met a bunch of fellow twitter friends and bloggers, many for the first time.
We’ll start with photos of the 10k, then photos of the first ever #DumboTweetUp, then photos of the half marathon.
Pavement Mickey and Minnie? with @pavmntprincess – funny thing? we didn’t coordinate this at all. We actually didn’t know what the other was wearing until the night before.
Look who I ran into within the first couple miles? @heatherslg
Keeping it real with Woody and Jesse
Someone say back to school?
I’m clearly nuts… or I have a chip on my shoulder.
The only race where you can run around the world in a 10k. “This ride is a classic and I wish more people took photos in front of it.” #theoldrunner
The First Ever #DumboTweetUp
People begin to arrive and socialize.
It’s some pretty amazing stuff going on.
We gave away prizes!
Are we still taking more pictures with runners?
Can someone please caption this?
Disneyland Half Marathon
Shout out to the team at Sparkle Athletic. I didn’t have a 2nd costume planned and they helped me with the perfect addition to my Goofy puzzle… a sparkle visor with Goofy ears sewn in. I had a couple of conversations with them on Twitter and it was all set. I swung by their booth at the expo, met the team and the First Lady quickly swooped on it… it was that good. Thanks ladies.
Check their site out here for all things sparkle. Great ideas and love their story.
My audition photo as a car model… any takers?
Just like the day before, came across @MealsAndMiles in the first couple miles, this time grabbed a pic.
Still waiting on my three wishes…
Someone in this photo is awkward…
Came across @KatSnF and ran the rest of the race with her (10 or so miles). Good times.
Goofy can dance.
Goofy plays baseball.
With the @SparkleAthletic Team – they look amazing with their Alice in Wonderland theme. Clearly should have worn the skirt as blue shorts, hot weather and sweat, not a good look. Self-deprecating humor in full swing here. #embarrassed #neverhappenedbefore
Came across Sean Astin (Goonies, Rudy, Lord of The Rings). Had a great conversation with him and he was a really nice guy. He ran the 5k, 10k, Half. He has been running as a part of his inspirational Twitter campaign #Run3rd
The hardware and the math.
My favorite part racing. Sharing the medals with the First Lady.
Have you ever thought of running a Disney race?
What costume would you run in?
I’ll be back down in LA for the Rock n Roll Half Marathon. If you want to run it as well, save $10 here.
