Best City I’ve Run In
This won’t surprise anyone, but this was an easy answer for me.
Ha. I know- I know, don’t @ me. I know it’s NOT a city.
But it is located in Anaheim, and the city of Anaheim is my favorite running city so far.
Anaheim is FLAT FLAT FLAT. And I super appreciate that when I have to suck through 13.1 miles of anything.
Even the few overpasses we covered near Disneyland weren’t too terribly bad.
Hey now, that’s a legitimate reason to love a city!
Anaheim also really comes out to support the Disney runners.
I can’t speak for other races (and I know, Disney used to help make the crowd support happen with some tickets for volunteering) but it sure made the miles fly by.
I mean, they were just fantastic!
Every year, I looked forward to the classic cars or cosplayers or dance groups that I knew I’d find on the streets of Anaheim.
Having strangers cheer you on makes ALL the difference mentally on a long stretch, and they were much appreciated in the city of Anaheim.
Anaheim also came out with some epic race signs for these races.
I still laugh at the absurdity of the amount of money each mile represents. It’s funny because its true!
Also- $175. How cute were we, thinking things couldn’t get worse?
And of course, the number 1 reason I love Anaheim is that when I was through with the races, I was heading right over to my happy place.
I love you, Disneyland!
