question for repeat Princesses: where exactly do you enter Epcot when you're running? is it by the resorts bus stops? I'm asking because my DH and DD are going to cheer me on and they will go to MK to cheer on Main Street and they want to find another spot before the 13.1 mile point. If they stand by the Bus Stops at Epcot will the see me?

If I remember correctly, and I should because I have run this race four times, but I don't. Perhaps just brain dead at that point in the race. We come in from an overpass and through the parking lot on the far side of the monorail....where the resort buses come in. When they get off the monorail, they will want to stay to the right (facing park), we will finish to the left of the monorail as in when you come off it and are facing the park. There will be plenty of people and they can't miss all the people cheering. We actually enter the park through a side entrance, again if you are facing the park, this would be right of the turnstiles. I am going to post this confusing explanation.
Hopefully some one can do a better job.

MAN, I was bummed I couldn't get that mascara here in the US, but true about Canadian princesses often having this issue with other stuff!

One more thing on spectators..
The start is not a great place to see loved ones. I love seeing the people, but it is dark and I don't know who they are and runners are on the far side of the divided highway. If you want to watch from here, I would suggest getting a big bouquet of balloons or something neon/glow in the dark and know when your runner is coming.
The TTC is a great place and the MK. Easy to get to as well.

Thank you Princess V!

I LOVE your latest blog post...I am a single mom too and running has totally saved me and turned everything around. I am so much stronger now. Parts of your post were like reading my own life. It was beautifully written - and brave. You are awesome! Who needs Prince Charming anyway? We can write our own happily ever after.

Can someone explain how the spectators get to anywhere besides the start and finish? Do the spectators walk along the same route that the runners use between Epcot and MK, or is there a different way for spectators to go?

Thanks, we're going to park at Epcot and they'll go straight to the monorail to go to MK so this is perfect. When they come back they can watch me from where the busses drop off at Epcot and then at the finish line

They take the monorail from Epcot to the TTC to MK to watch from inside MK, you don't need a ticket to bee a spectator since it's before the park opens, then they hop on the monorail again to get back to Epcot.

Finished my longest walk yet yesterday, almost twelve miles! I came in under time but unless I can do an eight minute mile to finish off I might be over. Should I increse my walking speed or throw in a few runs to my walk? I'm feeling fine today so both options are under consideration.

Oh my those are great. Might even be worth running more races just to wear them.

Not sure what corral you will be in, but if you are in the last one, try to get to the front as the time starts once last person crosses start line. There isn't much to see in the first three mile so you could try some one minute runs every 5 minutes or so. You will pass the pirate ship and princes' but you can see then on the way back around mile 9ish. Once you hit Epcot you will be fine to finish...I understand they don't sweep once in the park. Some one correct me if I'm wrong on this.

Awesome work! I agree with joan4mickey - maybe try throwing in a minute or so of a jog every 5 minutes for a bit and see how that feels.
