I have NO idea how to write this report (so I'll do it mostly through photos!). This was not a normal race. This was beyond fun. Chaos. Craziness. So much laughter. Conversations that have to stay on the streets of Anaheim. Photos that may never end up being shown - but always cherished by the three members of Team Jam! We didn't run 13.1 miles that day. We "ran" 13.4. Zigging, zagging, turning around to repeat photo stops... we were overachievers! Time? Who the heck cares? We were in Disneyland - and honestly I was disappointed when I saw the finish line. I didn't want it to end. I've never felt that way during a race before!

Did you know they won't let you hump a dog? Yep. Rose tried. So instead I made her go for the rock - better than nothing, right?
Running through the parks is the best! We were all over the place, on-stage and off. I loved the off-stage parts because it was finally okay to take pictures and not worry about getting in trouble by your boss. I loaded up. I mean between the two races I have TONS! (There are about 400 race photos overall ... facebook is the place to see 'em, FYI.)

|No humping, but ass rubbing is A-Okay!|
|All 3 of us were hit by the float. I'm pretty sure the Cast Member put us there on purpose.|
|Goal A: Cartwheel during the race!|
|Goal B: Photo on the baseball field|
|Toilets are so overrated. When you gotta go, you gotta go!|
Basically, Team Jam and the Disneyland Half Marathon was an amazing experience! In all 6 half marathons I've run, this was definitely the one that stands apart as truly unique. I mean how many people can say they did cartwheels, had jazz hands, sang and danced with marching bands and ran on a baseball field all during one race? Yeah - we had all the energy in the world to be probably the most annoying, obnoxious, entertaining, hysterical team on the course. A total blast. One word ... EPIC!!
