Done and icing! Took it easy and certainly didn't PB. Enjoyed the race tent. Thanks for all the support.

Tomorrow is going to take 100% for me to finish. But luckily I have 100% to give!

It was very bunched up in places this morning. It seemed like the first couple of miles were really bad. We were walking at some points.

Thought Capt. Jack and Barbossa were really early this year. There looked like there were 100 people in line. I liked that they just switched sides of the road after everyone had passed the first time.

Time for a nap now and rest for tomorrow. Good luck everyone and will see some of you at the DATW on Monday.

Had a great race (well... You can't really call it a race, since I didn't run for time).

My running pace was about 12:30 - which is 75 seconds per mile slower than my PR time from November - pretty reasonable considering it was 25-30 degrees warmer and about 55% humidity higher than that race).

But, I also stopped and walked a lot to take pictures and enjoy myself.

Chip time was 3:01:10.

It's been so much fun training and chatting with all of you here on this thread!

Good job to all Half participants and good luck to all Marathon runners!

Half: done! It was definitely warm out there. Tomorrow I'm not even bothering with my light jacket for the start. I took it off in the corral, had a tank on, and was fine. Some who are chilly-prone may still want at least a long sleeve shirt for the wait.

The walk from here at OKW to the corrals this morning was awesome!!! It was so fast and easy!

Can someone help for tomorrows marathon. We r stating offsite at Windsor hills resort. I was planning on taking a cab over in the am. What time should I leave? I was thinking 3am. Also my family has a car and wants to meet me at the end. Will it be chaos? Will the traffic be crazy for them to come at the end of the race?

Done with the half and it was tough out there. It was everything we had been talking about: warm, humid, crowded. I hung in the back of H and we had a nice time just chillin until it was our turn to move., which took a while. Some of the course was too narrow and I ended up running on the grassy area next to the road quite a bit. Lots of water stations and potties! Woohoo! My legs are a little more sore than I would like but since we don't have anything planned for today, I'm going to continue to sit on my balcony and relax. Ahhhhh.
Just a marathon to go!

I did it!!!!!!!! It wasn't pretty and it wasn't fast, but I completed my first 13.1 and bawled like a baby!! My knee was hurting so badly after mile 6, i couldn't run anymore at all. My amazing husband stayed with me the entire time, web though he could've finished way faster!!

Like someone posted earlier, I appreciated the spectators way more than I thought i would-loved the 'I'm a stranger and I'm proud of you' and some of the others. So much fun. I didn't even need my iPod because there was always so much to see an hear!!!

Of to AK with the kids if I can walk!

Good luck to all doing the 26.2 tomorrow!!!!!!!!

Great job. It's an amazing feeling when you see that finish line. All the more when in pain.

Thanks... I was wondering if I would need throw down clothes. I was leaning towards no, and this confirmed it. See y'all bright and early!!

On my cell at AK so I can't search, and I have a friend who was wondering where the cut off point for the marathon was. Thanks

They gave out those crappy boxes again. At least it was slightly better than the DL half.

What's up with the crappy boxes??
