Thursday was very busy-a seminar all day, first day of class and then down to Anaheim. I parked at 7:49, ran to the expo, got to bib pick up at 7:54, shirts at 7:57 and merchandise at7:58. I was able to shop and get most of what I wanted! Score however it made for a late night. All of the adrenaline kept me up so I went to the hotel, checked in, unpacked, and prepped for the next morning. I didn't fall asleep until 10 and slept like crap. 5:30 of sleep so was very slow moving in the morning and tried to take a Lyft to the start and that didn't work so I walked.
Got a bit turned around but did bag check, got an awesome pic and headed to corrals
I got a shoutout from Carissa for my outfit and it was very crowded so I had to bop and weave more than I would have liked. We headed up the on ramp and down again and then backstage by the team disney building. Chewy was the first character we got to.
I got a pic with chewy (10 min wait) and continued on to a crowded course. I definitely went faster than I would have liked but I was trying to get to the next character.
I think my finishing time was around 1:13/1:14 but my running pace was about an 11 min mile. I definitely did some sprinting and lots of weaving. Towards the end was basically wall to wall people walking so I did my best.
Wish I could have gotten a pic with R2D2 and C3P0 but I don't regret waiting for BB8 for 20 min. If he is out again, that line will be crazy!
Afterwards I went to get breakfast, prepped for the 10k, shower, rolled and napped and headed out to hang out with Carolyn and Marilynn and then expo fun.
Did you run the Star Wars 5k?
