4400

Nineteen laps today will get me to 4400 all time at Radiator Springs Racers. Shorter hours now with the fall season. Park open today from 10am until 8pm.

As usual, I walked over from the parking lot. I walked by the starting line for all the Disney races this weekend and got a little  nervous. I’m trying the 5K for the first time ever.
Let’s keep it simple today. After rope drop, I arrived at the attraction at 10:05am. And away we go.
From 10:15am to 11am, 4 laps. Now at 4385.
From 11am to 12pm: 4 more laps. Now at 4389.
From 12pm to 1pm: 5 laps. Now at 4394. Can not walk away now. No break until I hit 4400.
Lap 4395 at 1:10pm.
Lap 4396 at 1:25pm.
Lap 4397 at 1:40pm.
Lap 4398 at 1:58pm.
Lap 4399 at 2:10pm.
Lap 4400: Shou was at single rider entrance. Ruth was at merge and Brian  at merge 2. Got sent to GWD. Carlene  and Teddi at GWD and Grace at GWD assist. At 2:30 pm in Purple 4, on Luigi side of race, I won on lap 4400. 
It was very fitting that on this exact day, 4 years ago, I had double knee replacement. Without that surgery, I probably would not of been on this ride 10 times. Let alone 4400 times. So I have to also thanks my surgeon, Dr. Thomas Bryan. He did both my knees in about 3 hours. The next adventure will be on Friday morning, when I’m taking part in the Dusneyland 5K.
