Ooh, good question - I hadn't even considered whether hydration packs wouldn't be allowed! I have a Nathan pack I love (and have been training with on my longer runs), and I was definitely planning on wearing it for the half...

Well last time I posted I had a really bad cold and here's the update. I was feeling better and thought I was in the last stages. I just had a little cough at night and that was about it. I even got a few double digit runs in. However I woke up at about 2 this morning and felt horrible again so I went to the doctor and found out that I now have a bacterial sinus infection. Great way to start 2013.

I am now taking antibiotics the size of a horse pill (no joke I have to cut them in
half). So I am hoping that I feel better by next week. I'm not even worried about the race I will struggle though that I just don't want to be that person on the plane.

I'll leave OKW around 4:30ish (depends on where my room is located).

POR is farther away from the corrals than POFQ, of course, so it's up to you if that's a doable walk.

You can run with the backpack but you have to stop at security to let them inspect at every park...



OK, just kidding ....Seriously, if you have trained with it and feel like you need it for the race, then by all means bring it. Do take a look at the race map and you will see that plenty of water stops are provided for the race. It's all about your comfort level at this point. The aid stations are not spaced very evenly in the first half of the race, but after that, they average about a mile apart.

This may be a stupid question, but my DH and I were wondering how many runners are running the half and how many are running the full marathon? This is his first, so it's all new to us.

In really round numbers

~ 15,400 Full
~ 17,600 Half

Then add ~ 10,100 Goofy runners.

I guess doing the math ~25,500 Full and ~27,700 Half total

On Monday, I would expect 18k finishers for either race. Disney has a lot of shrinkage between slots and actual runners/finishers

Not cool!!! Do you have any idea how hard it is to restart one's OWN heart???

OK. You got me good. I know the water stops are pretty good but I figured that since I've trained with it and I'm comfortable with it I'd give it a go. Besides, I don't think I'm coordinated enough to do the tapered dixie cup technique!!! Thanks for the info!

In previous years i have trained with and ran the race with a camelback. If you are comfortable with it, I say go for it. For me it was nice to know i had water and could drink it easily. Plus it gave me space to carry a few things. This year i will run with a fuel belt. I just wanted a change and thought not having something on my back would be better.

I understand the comfort of doing the same thing in the race.

It's getting so close.
Does anyone want to ride the bus over to the marathon with me from POR? I'll be wearing a yellow and red minnie mouse sparkle skirt and you can't miss me because I'll be having a mini panic attack/nervous breakdown. Feel free to say hello.

I got mine after online! I felt better seeing the pictures before buying, just in case there weren't any good ones!
