This morning runners were in for a treat! Runners got the chance to meet Moana. Most were expecting to see Moana as she was the theme for the half marathon this year. She could be found in the Reunion Lot for runners to take pictures before or after the race.

This morning runners could meet Raya and Moana in the Reunion Lot before and after the Half Marathon!

Another rare character that was out this morning in the Reunion Lot was Raya. I was very excited to see her! I had wanted to meet her at Wine and Dine, but her line was LONG! Today, her line was one of the shorter ones, so I got to meet her! Check it out:
