Sunday seems like a world away now that the 5th Annual Disneyland Half Marathon has been and gone, but today they released the official race photos as a reminder of the event (for a princely sum).

So here's a selection of me running and sweating my way through the theme park and beyond to the Finish Line.
One of the highlights of the fun run was running through the Angels baseball stadium where crowds shouted encouragement from the seats, bands played and cheerleaders encouraged all the runners on.

They also filmed you as you ran by so you could see yourself projected on the stadium big screen (which is what I think I'm looking up at).
From this next selection of shots of me crossing the Finish, you can see the elation on my face, especially when I check my watch for my race time.

Even though it was a challenge, I had great fun and it reminded me how enjoyable it can be to run en masse as part of a huge collection of people.
I've had my massage and my legs feel great, so I'm seriously considering signing up for next year's L.A. Marathon on March 20, 2011.

I'd better get my running shoes on...
