I ran Nike with my playsport in my hand. It was perfect cause its shock proof, water proof and it has a strap I could put around my wrist. But it doesn't have a flash and now that both parks are gonna take place before daylight, I'm thinking that wont really work if I want pics with any characters.
I run with our point and shoot around my wrist. But, I hold it the whole time (it doesn't dangle from my wrist).

I ran the Princess Half and just used my phone. Much easier and less to carry for 13.1 miles.

I'm trying to get my times down but my times are no where near you guys. If I'm lucky I'm just at the maximum for race. I'm so nervous that ill get swept but there is nothing I can do except keep trying.

The excitement from the race will help push you.

Also get there early and get as close to the front of your corral to give you a little cushion.

You WILL do it

It's funny how our biggest fear with these Disney races is being swept.... I wonder how many people they actually sweep people during a race?

No idea. But I know last year they swept people at Tink by mistake!!!!! Some confusion about the timing and volunteers lead to at least 20 people getting swept who were still ahead if time (well ahead). When they complained it took too long for someone to come straighten it out and by then if was too late to let them finish.

Terrible. May have been more than 20 but I remember one post about it and she said there was a group of them that this happened to.

Just train hard and the race will be "easy" compared to your training runs!

I've done 2 Disney halves. I was close to being swept in the first one, but I made it! It's going to be fine yall- you got this!

Patty just said y'all! This Canadian chick is easily amused by things like that. Of course I'll admit to using the stereotypical canadian "eh" both in real life and online.
