2014 John Williams concert at the Hollywood Bowl

As the Hollywood Bowl website states, it just wouldn’t be summer without John Williams coming to the Hollywood Bowl. Theresa and I have been coming to see him since 2005 and it’s always an amazing experience.

Disneyland Half Marathon Expo and packet pickup

Anyone else remember what they were doing back on January 22nd at 9am? I do. I was signing myself and Theresa up for the 9th annual Disneyland Half Marathon. It’s pretty insane how popular this event has become. Back when this event was just beginning, registration took months to sell out. Lately though it’s been selling out faster and faster, even though the price has increased dramatically.
In the inaugural year of 2006, the race took 5.5 months to sell out and cost $95.
In 2013, the event sold out in just over 1 day and registration now cost $175.
So what happened in 2014? Prices went up another $20 to $195 and still registration sold out in 9.5 hours. You’ve got to be on top of your game if you want to run in a Disney race.

Fast forward to August 29th, 2014. It’s race weekend and today is the day to pick up our race bibs.
