I almost didn’t go. I will start by saying that. I had been traveling every weekend before this for 4 weeks. I had come down with a bad head cold and I was just going to write it off the Avengers race weekend. Driving 6 hours to Disneyland, getting up at 3:45am and running a 10k and a half marathon just didn’t sound good a couple days before the weekend. I had told friends I was coming. Well, believe it or not, it was my husband who actually talked me into it. I’m glad I did because we had a lot of fun and we got to see the Christmas Parade. My little monkey ran her kids race and got another medal and the whole family was happy. It was a win win.
Back to the Avengers 10k. I got up at 3:45am. I put on my Her Universe Thor dress and headed over to the race. The race started on time at 5:30am.
The 10k course was basically the same one as the Disneyland 10k. I really like the course. Basically the first 2 miles are outside of the park and then the last 4 are all park miles. The 10k course actually has more inside the park miles than the Avengers Half Marathon course does, just an FYI.
The last mile is exiting out through the backstage of Disneyland and running through Downtown Disney to the finish line. I had a really good time. It was great to see friends and my head cold didn’t bother me too much. I ran back to the hotel after the race to get my little monkey and head to her kids race that was at 9:00am.
The 10k is definitely the “pro” about the Avengers race weekend and the half marathon course is definitely the “con” in my opinion. The next morning I was getting up to run the Avengers Half Marathon to finish my Infinity Gauntlet Challenge.
Did you run the Avengers 10k?
