That may be my only make as my left hamstring is pretty tight. If it doesn't loosen by morning then it will be a very relaxed marathon for Peter.
That's awesome!!

I hope there are. Sometime between the volunteer retrieving my bag after the Donald this morning and now, my sticker came off. Right now, I have a piece of paper in the bag with my bib number on it.

Finished my first half with my wife today. She had a knee issue so we ended up waking a good deal at the end. But we finished and finished together and had a good time. It was very crowded at the start but we made our corral without issue. It was warm but we kept hydrated. Now we get to enjoy a week long vacation! Congrats to all those done today and for all those running tomorrow enjoy!

I'm staying at Pop - what time should I catch a bus? Heard it was really crowded here last year and took over an hour to get on a bus

I finished the half this morning 30 seconds over my goal of 2:45. But compared to the only other half we've run (The W&D), my Runkeeper said we ran .12 miles more but were 5 minutes faster! So I guess that's good! My Runkeeper said we ran 13.48 miles! That's quite a bit more than a 13.1. And I know that at mile 8 we were discussing with random people how all of our watches/apps were saying that we were .21 over what the mile markers were saying.

But my knee is killing me again. It feels just like it did when I ran the 16 miles. Like nothing in PT helped at all. I'm still not sure I really belive its ITBand...I mean I'm not a doctor but I can foam roll my ITband and not feel even the slightest bit of pain. And when they say they're stretching my ITband at PT, I don't feel any pain either. But the pain in my knee feels like it bone. Right at the side of the knee, where it bends. If that really is ITband, then they've got to show me other ways to help it. I'm walking with a limp and have a 5k at Universal next weekend.

On the good side, I thought today's race went well. For some reason, this was the least crowded for us. We were in corral C. Usually, I have to walk for the first little bit just because there are so many people in front of us going slow. But today it cleared up right at the beginning. Some of the roads were narrower but nothing like going from DHS to Epcot.

I had the craziest dream last night after the half. I dreamt i had signed up to do another race today and it's a marathon! That's craziness. Well I cant go back to sleep so i think I'll go for a long run.

Good luck everyone. Nice and easy.

I'm sitting at the gate waiting for it to open. It's actually chilly.
