Best Things Seen At A Race

Today's Tuesdays on the Run topic centers around the best things you've seen at a race. This is something that really excited me because I love to carry my camera around with me during races and have done so for many years!

There's so many great things I've seen at races that it's impossible to include them all in one post. Instead, I hope you'll enjoy this little walk down memory lane with me and enjoy some of these images just as much as I did!

Most race I've run have been in the morning (with the exception of a few Wine & Dine's and Gleaux Runs), so looking forward to the sunrise has always been a perk!

How about costumes? Running a Disney race definitely gives the chance to see a ton of runners in costume!

Along with costumes goes characters! Of course running a Disney race always offers a ton of opportunities to see characters! (If you want to, of course.)

I've seen some really funny race signs in my running career! This group was situated around mile 3 of a half marathon and they kept moving along the course. I saw them again around mile 12!

Anyone remember the 2013 VMA's with twerking Miley Cyrus? Well, this guy was at the 2013 Disneyland Half and has one of my favorite race signs I've seen to date!

Speaking of California, I've also run into a few celebrities along race courses - Joey Fatone being one of them! 

Beads! If you run the streets of New Orleans, you'll see beads...lots and lots of them!

Ballparks! Running has offered me the opportunity to run on several professional MLB ballparks, along with the spring training field at ESPN's Wide World of Sports!

How about a state capitol? The Louisiana Half Marathon begins at the state capitol in Baton Rouge!

Finish lines - I've definitely seen my fair share of them at races!

Last but not least....friends. Races are a great way to catch up with friends and meet new ones! It's always great when I run into a familiar face somewhere along a race course or around town afterwards! Friends really do making the running journey an extra meaningful one!

What's the best thing you've seen at a race?

Tuesdays on the Run

It's the Tuesdays On The Run Linkup with ErikaMarcia and Patty


  1. Haha, I think alot of our list overlapped! RunDisney runners think alike, I guess!

  2. I've never seen the celebrities at Disney. I would've loved to have seen Sean Astin.

  3. Twerking Miley!! Hahaha and no thanks! OMG so many wonderful memories. You're right: so many beautiful sunrises!

  4. You have a great mix of favorites ;-) I totally forgot about the Miley Twerk...that was five years ago (already???). I love that set of signs ...halfway there...bad at math LOL

    1. Thank you! Yes, isn't that crazy how long ago that was?! Sheesh.

  5. Cool pictures. I really should be better about actually taking pictures LOL.
