My DH wants to come to the start with me to see me off for the HM. What are his options from there? We are staying at CSR so we will be using the shuttle service. No car this trip.

I'm with you. That's a good forecast. I don't like the cold. I'd rather be a little warm than chilly. I hate the feeling of being sweaty and cold.

I'm tired of training in the heat & humidity of Qatar. I want temps in the low 40s to start and in the mid 50s at the finish.

He can ride the bus with you. One at the Epcot parking lot, follow the crowd to the staging area. Once you decide it's time to head to the corral, you pass through a baggage check tent where you enter a runners only area (i.e. he cannot go to the corral with you). Prior to heading to the corrals, the staging area is also the post race family reunion area. Pick out a spot away from the baggage tents to meet post race. The area can be crowded and confusing.

After seeing you off, he can walk to the monorail to see you up north. He has two real options. He can either head to the Magic Kingdom and see you on Main (no admission for the Main Street area in the park during the race). Or he can set up and catch you at the Ticket and Transportation Center. Once you pass there, he can walk to the Poly Resort and watch you pass there. After you pass the Poly or Main, he would return to Epcot to catch the finish. Note that there are several bleachers set up. Only a couple are open to non-Chear package holders. My spectators usually hang out between the park exit and the bleachers rather than try to find a seat.

Hope this helps

Great weather for spectators and to cruise the parks, but really sucky for running 39 miles. I have a photo in the staging area where my skin was glistening from the temp and humidity. The other year was 2005. The weather was not quite as warm at the start but the high temperatures were quite warm.

So, if folks want a cooler start, I am open to a trade to a grand villa at BLT. My one and inly stay there was the freezer year of 2010.
We'll also be staying at OKW and still debating just walking to the start. We won't need bag check and could use the nice warm up walk over.

Former Torontonian, luv the cold.

I didn't mind the 50*F start and 70*F finish temp it was refreshing last year.

So it was YOU!

Since it is your fault if it is too hot then will you carry me?

I managed a 12 mile walk this morning in just under 3 hours. No foot pain!!! I'm taking a day off (instead of doing my back to backs) and then doing another long walk on Sunday. Thinking I'll be ready for Goofy!!!

So I just went to check the weather for this year's Princess because I remember being comfortable and I was surprised to see it was a high of 71 and low of 55. So I am taking back my wish for 40s/50s. I just looked again and see the high is not up to 77 with a chance of t-storms. How can they even predict a t storm this far in advance? I will now obsess over t storms on race day.

Oh and on our walk to school this morning I found out all the sidewalks are ice. Sigh. Unless it melts today or tomorrow morning (doubtful when the high is in the low 20s) I am going to have to move my 20 miler. Now to decide to move it to my tamalada (tamal making) day or Christmas Eve day. Either day won't be convenient but don't want to risk a fall.

Yeah, I noticed the same thing. I am going to hit the TM for today's run because falling is just not something I want to risk. Hopefully, the path will be dry/clear on Sunday for my 20-miler. I cannot imagine myself running 20 miles on the TM at the gym.

Rick,

I have been giving serious thought to doing my 20 miler at the gym! Mostly because I'm looking for an easy bail depending on how I feel. At least I know the temp is constant, no wind, shorts and a T-shirt, an even pace, a soft surface and if I time it right...football!

(Let the lemonade making begin!)

AND you my well get a preview of Orlando weather

Though, the latest iteration of lack-a-accuweather would mean that you may need to be under a fire sprinkler..... Something about rain both Saturday and Sunday.

Anyone have a Grand Villa Ressie they want to trade for a larger OKW Grand Villa? We did not go all the way back to 2002 in the previous post and my stay at OKW... The only marathon with rain. Yes, any negative weather seems to relate to me staying somewhere other than at the Epcot DVC resorts.

That is true. Running in the gym could mimic Orlando conditions. But I am praying for 40-60s and not 70s.

Maura, I just don't know if I could keep myself motivated to run 20 miles on the TM. I would be so bored! I guess I could bring my iPad and have 2 action movies lined up. LOL
