I didn’t want to leave you hanging on a recap of the 10k, but I landed back in New York late last night and I start classes today, so I figured I’d bring in a friend to guest post and tell you all about it!
So, without further ado, please welcome today’s guest blogger – LIGHTNING McQUEEN!
Hi there! I am so excited to be here on Live, Run, Grow to tell you all about the Disneyland 10k while Danielle gets settled in at home and back to school!
So, let’s get started!
Sally, Mater and I got up bright and early, filled our tanks with some pre-race fuel and put on some Rust-eze medicated bumper ointment to avoid any chafing (had to throw in a little sponsor love!) before heading out to meet up with Guido, Luigi and Fillmore (and our caution cones!)
We attracted quite a bit of attention as we made our way through the crowds, but I guess that’s what happens when you’re such a big celebri-car!
We got to our corral in time for the national anthem and a few minutes later the starting gun went off and we were on our way!
The first few miles we cruised along comfortably enjoying the scenery, but when we got to our favorite little town on Route 66 we just had to stop for a few pictures!
…where Guido was nice enough to change my tire quick!
The cones checked in on the motel…
…we all stopped at the junkyard with Mater…
…and Fillmore picked up some more organic fuel for us for the rest of the race!
After we left Radiator Springs, we drove through the rest of California Adventure…
…and then into Disneyland!
We even stopped to say hello to some of our other car friends!
The rest of the race went pretty quickly and before we knew it we were crossing the finish line and getting our beautiful medals!
I am so proud of all my friends, and best of all we had a GREAT time!
Thanks everyone for stopping by and reading about the Disneyland 10k race with all my friends, we had so much fun and I’m glad I could share it with you! And don’t forget to pop in and say hello if you’re ever in Radiator Springs!
Thanks Lightning! Disneyland Half Marathon recap coming soon, and in the meantime if you missed it, be sure to check out the fun pictures on the Dumbo Double Dare: The Costume Teaser post!
