50th Birthday and Disneyland 5K

At the Expo

Katy and I in our hotel robes on our way to the pool.  We stayed at the Grand Californian, which is right at Downtown Disney and California Adventure

The Start line, Saturday morning at 5am.

Start of the run

Running through California Adventure, you can see the Mickey ferris wheel in the background.

Running down Main St. in Disneyland

The next morning

My medal

Katy and Jace watching Mickey cartoons in the lobby of the hotel.  It was gorgeous, nothing but wood and Craftsman style furniture.

Of course, our first ride....Small World

Had to go to the Tiki Room and get my Dole Whip

Tower of Terror, my new favorite ride

I kept saying all I wanted was a turkey leg and a Dole Whip. I got both.  Here is the turkey leg. It was huge and fed Katy and myself, with a few bites to Jade.

At Farrell's on my birthday.

Disneyland and Tunnel To Towers 5K

My first 5K, Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Run. Stephen Siller was firefighter in NYC on 9/11.  He was at home in Staten Island, he was off duty when the towers were hit.  He drove to Battery Tunnel and the traffic was stopped.  He put on all of his gear and ran to the Towers.  He died there.  This run is in rememberance of him and the other 342 firefighters who lost their lives that day.  This year, the Stephen Siller Foundation also teamed up with the Wounded Warriors Foundation, to help those soldiers who come home disabled with lost limbs.  The Foundation builds smart houses for them.


Jace and I with the Wounded Warriors that also ran.

(OK, who do I resemble in this picture?)

Finish Line!!!
