I was really bummed...I buy from Hippie Runner every time! And why they chose to boot RUNNING PRINCESS from this expo in particular is beyond me! I'm betting the new addition of a pretty large New Balance booth was partly to blame. I'm not sure if there were others that will not be returning...I just know of those because I follow them on FB and saw their posts.
Oh, for crying out loud. This is the worst branding mistake I've ever heard of. Glad I have my running visor and "glass slipper" shirt already. But now I have to decide whether I want that "Blood Sweat and Tiara tank that badly. I wanted to blame that on a "spontaneous purchase" Just like I want to blame the Evil Fairy shirt on a "spur of the moment" decision.

I feel bad for them...you gotta figure this expo was a gold mine for Running Princess....a perfect fit. It's really disappointing to hear. I liked shopping expos to see and try things I don't normally see at any sporting goods store at home.

Joan- I think you are the only perfect princess here? Twitter says you get a sash, a tiara and button at pick up! I hope your ribbon is a different color too! But loving the sash!

Something odd, like clearing cache issues, on the Princess 1/2 website but it is there after page refresh.

Btw, I don't know what I would do without you all, answering all of my questions. THANK YOU :-)
It can take quite a long time, upwards of an hour. And yes they are calling the corrals, but it isn't that they are saying only corral A and B but suggesting corral A and B head over. Then the move on to C then D and so on. It is still crowded and slow going. There is just a lot of people in a small space. Give yourself time to get to your corral with plenty of time so you don't stress.

Joan mentioned they are calling corrals by letter now so that might help! "Corral a and B only please head to the corrals". I hope that's what they are doing. Should help spread out the congestion.
Wait, so I am confused. The buses drop people off in the parking lot. This is where bag check is. This is not where corrals are? Maybe I take back my earlier question of corral placement... So most of the "waiting" time pre-race is not in the corral, its a 20 min (or more) walk away, yes?. So you wait around near bag check until corrals are called - and can easily wait with people in any corral. Then people start walking to corrals. Then you spend how much time in the corral? I know, it depends on your walking speed and corral, but does the slow-shuffle-for-a-mile drop you off just a few minutes before go? Or still with a while to wait?

(Gotta know when to use the port-o-potty - Is my last chance really back at the drop off? Or will I be waiting down at the corrals for long enough to go then?)

I've done something to my right foot It happened last Thursday morning completely out of nowhere while I was shopping at Target. It is lateral pain that feels like a soft tissue injury rather than a bone. No swelling, bruising or pain to the touch. Only pain when I walk on it. It feels better in the morning and after ice and Advil and rest. I'm stressing out. I haven't run my last 4 training days. I just started using a stationary bike to keep up with my cardio yesterday. It doesn't hurt to ride the bike at all which is a plus. I'm wondering how you think I will do on race day if I only use the bike between now and then. I don't want to push myself and end up unable to run on race day. I also don't want to be struggling to cross the finish line without running in 3 weeks. I have done two 11 mile runs in the last month so I think I am ready from that standpoint.

Dan! I love it! For a second I thought that was your house and was going to applaud you on the bold pink choice!

Here's how the morning goes

Get on bus

Dropped off on far right side of Epcot parking lot

Walk half a mile ? To the waiting area. Stage, music, water, med tent, bag check all located here. Hang out here until you decide to go to corral or until yours is called. Porta potties here.

Walk through bag check tent to otherwise. Porta potties here too (or were last year)

Start 20 min (in theory) walk to corrals. More porta potties. Skip these. Congestion

Get to the corrals. Some porta potties will be out here too. Last chance before start

Get into corral and wait.

Depending on how early you get off bus and what choices you make- you can hang in corral for 15 min or an hour. Just depends on when you move that way

The official announcement wants people in corrals by 4:30 I think this year. But last year- tonnnsss of us were flooding in with 10 min to spare! I got to C and only had 15 min before start but corral was half empty. Just took a long time to get people moving last year

Hopefully calling the corrals might help that. ?

Hope this helps

Thanks for the heads up. That sounds really cool. I'm not on twitter or FB.

On another note..the event has a large amount of people...and not just runners. There are so many volunteers out there to help with water, cheering, bike medics, handing out medals, etc. Just know it take time to move people into place and if we follow directions (ie. don't wait until last minute to catch the bus to Epcot) we will all get the the start. Also be patient, there will be waiting. Just chat up your new best friend beside you. Don't sweat all the small details. We have put in our training, now is the time to taper the runs/walks and visual the start line and the route. Take a few minutes to review the route and know where the water stops and med tents are. Make sure you have run in the clothes you plan to wear on race day and if not you have time to test them.

The first year there were 6000 runner and I was in corral B without any proof of time. The next year there were 10000 and it just keeps going up.
