Thanks for asking. We didn't have anyone around, so I called rundisney we had 3.5 hrs of time on our hands) and the lady told my my DH, DM, DD8, and DD6 could pick up their bibs at the esplanade in the morning. They can get their shirts at the expo after. Whew! I'll get my stuff tomorrow for the 1/2.

If anyone running the 5k sees two little runners (8 & 6) be sure to cheer them on. This is their first 5k!

Just cross Katella and you'll be at the start. Thats where I'm staying. There will be tons of runners heading to the start. I'm leaving the hotel at 4am.

Just got back to the room from the 5k. So much fun and the medal is perfect for my outfits for this weekend. CM's were awesome today especially the custodial staff who made a sign for us to run under back stage, hope it's there tomorrow! Everything was all lit up, really pretty. They turned on the IASW xmas lights and color in the WOC fountains. Cold this morning waiting for the start so make sure to bring layers or a garbage bag to throw over before the race starts.

Good luck tomorrow ladies!!!!

I'm debating what time to leave tomorrow am. This is the first time I'm not staying at a Good Neighbor Hotel since I only live a couple miles away. Gotta add in the drive, park, and walk time now. Eep. But otherwise I'm ready. Heading back to the expo and the Parks today, yay!

Hit bad traffic on the way down Friday so missed the expo and dd missed the kids race. She doesnt seem to care since I was able to pick up her shirt today. So long as she's happy that's what matters!
Sitting in the hotel with my feet up and butterflies in my tummy! Nervous for tomorrow!!!!

Patty I can't wait to hear about your Jeff Galloway meet up and meet you and Sarah tomorrow!
Good Luck tomorrow everyone!!

I want to get as far up in corral as possible to give me cushion for time. I'm planning on walking from Stovalls.

Does the welcome packet have directions about how we are to get to start

How did everyone do? I finished, but I was only a few steps in front of the sweepers up until mile 10 when they stopped sweeping. Finished in 3:37, and that included 3 pitstops, pictures of the float of Rapunzel's tower, and pix with the livestock backstage. Wish I had a faster run but super thrilled to have completed my first half-marathon!!

Was there anything that you ladies saw you thought was special?

I saw him a couple times but didn't take pictures. My favorite sign read "This sounded like a good idea 4 months ago!" It hit really close to the truth for me, LOL.
