Hooray, 100 day mark!

Just a caution about McMillan. The equivalency calculator for the marathon assumes you are running upwards of 60 miles EVERY week. If you aren't, allow more time for a good estimate.

Thanks for the advice.. I know it is easy to want to sit or stay still after lol.. I will try that next time as well as the ice bath.

There are some web sites that will help you determine your marathon pace based upon another race's pace. MacMillan is one that I tend to use at http://www.mcmillanrunning.com/index...sage/calculate
Thanks. The furthest I've gone in training has been 15 miles so far and we ran that at an average of around 11:20-25 I think. I do the run/walk Galloway method, and so far that's allowed me to keep a pretty consistent pace so I'm hoping with the additional training before the race I can keep that same pace for the 26.2. Honestly, the corral placement isn't a big deal to me since this is my first marathon and my goal is simply to finish. Just thought if I did get a race in that let me move up the corral a bit that might be good.

The corral placement at these Disney races is baffling to me. I have a friend that ran W&D last year with her husband - they submitted virtually identical times for corral placement (6:58ish from the 2009 WDW Marathon I think) where she finished one second ahead of her husband. She somehow got placed in Corral B (fully acknowledging that she had no business being there) while he was placed in Corral C. So I really think it depends on whether you submit a time or not and, from the experience above, they may take gender into account as well.

For what it's worth, here are my 2 experiences with corral placement at Disney:

2011 Princess Half Marathon - Corral C with a submitted time of 2:00:42 for a 10-mile race (12:04/mile)...my brother also ran this race with me and could have been in Corral B with a time of 1:38:07 for 10 miles (9:49 pace) but he dropped back to C to run with me I remember being completely thrilled with this corral placement!

2012 Walt Disney World Marathon - Corral D with a submitted time of 1:54:11 for a 10-mile race (11:25/mile)

This year I'm submitting 1:39:07 (9:54/mile) for Goofy...we'll see what happens! I'm hoping to at least move up to C, but I think it completely depends on how many other people submit times and what kind of times are submitted.

Another baffled corral placement person.

Just had corral A for ToT. Since I am a speed-walker I made sure I was the last individual over the start mat to make sure I blocked no runners. By the 1 mile mark I had passed at least 300 people who were walking, jogging, running or Gallowaying. I figured I would be slower than anyone in corral A but it was very evident that many people were slower and did not belong in A. I passed many more before exiting the course to get a McDonald's M&M McFlurry and then returning to continue the race.

Some people could have even been in corral C, IMO. It made for some early nervous passing.

Seriously? People went to get a McFlurry during the race?

Well, at least ONE crazy McFlurry lover did. Will be doing the same during January's Marathon.

Me too! With the coaster coming too early and England probably not serving beer yet, this is what will have to pass for a distraction this year.

Just a warning, the re-entry ramp was a wicked up-hill cambered tight bummer turn, but it was so cool blending in with the other racers. Wish I had turn signals for exiting and entering. NOW that's a thought for January.

Gotta find something to look forward to. In looking at the map it looks like we may run right by the TOT. Do we? Any chance of hopping on that during the marathon? I need something to look forward too now that EE is not an option. A McFlurry just ain't gonna cut it for me.

I'm glad that there are a bunch of us baffled by the corral placements. I was in C for ToT and for the first two miles could barely move for all the people who were strolling 5-6 people abreast. I Galloway, but when I'm doing my walk portions, I try to make sure I stay to the side or get behind or in front of others walking so there's still a path for faster people. I ended up passing tons of people even though I'm slow and conditions were brutal. I don't get it, but I guess none of us do.

We were in A as well, fairly close to the back because I used the porta-potty one too many time and it was pretty difficult to pass all the walkers/very slow joggers for the first couple miles. I ran most of the first mile on the grass!

Yup, nighttime on the slippery grass was not fun for me. Remembered my off road excursions from the inaugural W&D for the passing on the grass. Much harder speed-walking on grass than running because my feet are very low to the ground with my stride and little divots or bumps are not easily handled. Did manage a 9:21 for the first mile even on the grass passing.
