Showcasing all the tales and adventures of Joe, Theresa, Ian, and Alli Flowers.
That castle hat looks perfect against the "wacky" float holding Alice & the Mad Hatter. Was that one medal, "Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World" a result of participating in both half marathons in the same year? I vaguely remember some type of "bonus" medal if coast-to-coast races (but not sure which races) were done the same year. Congratulations, Joe & Theresa, for completing another race! Joe, was this the 1st Disneyland half marathon that led you onto the road to "legacy status (hope that's the right term)"? I think I recalled a post from MC where you talked about that legacy status, and how fun it was to be a part of it. Great photo ops along the way! EOM
Yes! That medal is called the Coast to Coast medal. And yes, you earned it by completing a race at WDW and DL in the same year. If you look at the medal, you can see a little star where Disneyland and Disney World are on the map.They've even expanded it into the races they do out in Paris now. It's called the Castle to Château Challenge, where if you complete a Disney race in the States and another in Paris you get a bonus medal. 2006 was the inaugural race at Disneyland and the reason I have Legacy status. I realize now that I'm missing that entry from the blog. I'll have to get it posted one of these days.
