It's time for another Photo Friday and in honor of the upcoming RunDisney events next week, I'm giving you a special two-fer today! These shots come from the 2010 half marathon. Above, I was running through the Magic Kingdom. Just down on the far left side of the spectators (can't see in this shot) is Lou Mongello and the WDW Radio Running Team cheering section, unless Lou happens to be on one of his many side trips to get coffee, as he was this morning.
Likewise this shot is later on in the event, less than a mile from the finish line, showing how the runners come into Future World by the Seas with Nemo pavilion, run down toward the entrance to World Showcase, turn around and head back past Spaceship Earth again and head out toward the far eastern parking lot area and the finish line.
Now let me lay a bit of the scene for those of you not familiar with the 2010 half and full marathons. First off, it was FREEZING. I mean that literally. The water stations were freezing up. At the start of the half marathon it was actually lightly snowing. Yes, you read correctly, snow in Florida. A few hours later the light snow became a light sleet then a light and cold rain. It might not have been the best running conditions, but we all still had a great time (right Lori and Mitch!!). I can say this, it was one Disney experience I will never forget.
