You guys are helping my perspective....the porta-potties don't seem to bad after all.

I don't have the worry about squatting issue, male issues there (haha), but I still won't do it, you have too many hidden creatures, too many hidden spots and they can still get my leg if I piss them off, and yes, pun intended.

I will usually hit up the permanent bathrooms or a quiet set of porta potties after race starts.

I won't be checking a bag and plan to now take a taxi....
I have this exact same problem! I think I made my ADR too early. I have a park hopper pass, so I could go through EPCOT/International Gateway back to the BCV. Do you guys think that would be faster or should I take Disney Transportation back to BCV? I'm guessing that I'll finish between 8:30 and 8:45, so it won't be too long before EPCOT opens.

Oh great! Now I'm right there with Vicki in the scary place! If there are spiders along the paths or in the porta-potties, I don't want to know about it!

After what I witnessed at the full marathon last month...the trees opposite corral A and B should be fine (if they are set up the same). I can't imagine any kind of creature wanting to live there. Every tree was being used, and guys and girls were just waiting for a free tree to have a turn.
Oh yeah, I was one of those who used a tree.

Laughing at all the snake talk ! living in the country outside San Antonio we have our share of snakes most are harmless but let's just say my aim with a gun is really good...too bad I can't bring my "snake eliminator " with me on the plane !

Got an e-mail from rundisney with the waiver...which I already have...but also a link to a virtual goodie bag. Anybody else get the e-mail ?

Did my 8 miles today and feel great.....gonna finish the PHM.... it was about 65 low humidity and sunny. Thinking it might be like that in Orlando. And don't forget some sunscreen if you will be out when the sun comes out at race time. My lily white skin got a little sunburn this morning !

My friend is very concerned that she will be swept. She is going to to her best to finish and is ok with being swept if that happens but she is wondering what will happen once she is swept. Where do they take people? Do they get a medal? Any info will great.

holy jesus i'm so glad i didn't read all of this before the marathon. i had to pee and just went over in the woods where everyone else was. and yes, people could totally see me. but it was dark so nobody could see any of the goodies.

i'll be porta pottying it from now on. i have a pretty significant fear of snakes so all this was enough to keep me on the walking path!!

Glad to not have to worry about transportation

Finished a full 13.1 in my practice costume, minus the socks, this morning. All systems are go! Not thrilled with how disgustingly sweaty my bandana gets, but it is what it is. Keeps sweat from running onto my face I guess. Anyone else dressing like Izzy from Jake & the Neverland Pirates?
I will at Shades of Green. We are planning on being out front at 0300 to get on the bus. WE will be in Corral H so we want to get as close to the front of that corral as we can. We will look for you.

Thanks for the email alert Gryhndmom. Checked it out.

For you crafty people...what is the best glue for craft foam?
I'm glueing sequins to foam and foam to foam and some other stuff..sort of like a heavy paper.

I use a brand called beacons 3 & 1 and also have used super glue products and goop made for crafting. If you have a hobby lobby or michael's craft store they usually have a good selection of adhesives for various projects. Some are made just for fabrics and others are multipurpose.

Thanks. I have found some elmer's muti purpose glue and elmers craftbond ultra stix all. I can't read the back of crafbond tube..much too small lettering. Do you think either of these will work?
