2011 Disneyland Half Marathon Expo

Jeff Galloway and Whitney Henderson ( cross country runner) at Disneyland Half Marathon Expo September 3, 2011
Alice, Nancy, Mary, Tara and I had a great day at the Disneyland Half Marathon Expo in Anaheim, California today. Nancy, Alice and I will race the half marathon tomorrow morning at 6 AM.

We started the day by having breakfast at our usual watering hole, Ronnie's Diner on Culver Blvd., near Marina Del Rey. We then all climbed into Nancy's SUV (thank you Nancy for driving!) and slowly made our way out to Anaheim. I was in charge of the navigation and, well, we hit traffic. But, we arrived by 10:30 AM or so.

After our race bibs were collected, the goodie bag and t-shirt pick up were next.

Then, a little shopping at the Expo vendors.

More shopping.....

Next, it was off to see Jeff Galloway of Run/Walk/Run fame and my running mentor.

Alice took this photo for me.

Olympic runner Jeff Galloway and me

Jeff gave a nice 45 minute presentation that was a summery of run/walk/run and an extended question and answer session. My question was answered on marathon training and missing a long run after 20 miles.

Off, we went for a little more shopping and then lunch at the ESPN Zone in Downtown Disney.

Before we left the Expo area though, I caught a photo of this shirt which struck me funny.

Tomorrow's race is early for us at 6 AM. We will leave Thousand Oaks around 3 AM for Nancy's (who is again driving - thanks Nancy!)

I will have a race report then.
