Disneyland Half Marathon WeekendDisneyland Half Marathon Weekend
September 13, 2016
Christopher Schmidt, back again to bring you a review of the 2016 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend.

When the Expo opened, there was a healthy and eager crowd, but they did not overwhelm the volunteers dispensing bibs and shirts; my primary areas of concern. Jeff Galloway was again in attendance, of course. He was, again, exceedingly generous with his time; hanging around before and after his speaking engagement to meet and talk to participants and fans.
