They just posted on FB that Girl on Fire won for the Princess anthem tomorrow. Oh we'll, wasn't my vote, but I like the song anyway. Ok, iPad off, lights out!

Good luck everyone, and have fun!! Can't wait to hear everyone's race reports afterward.

I'll be at the Beach Club bus stop around 3:15am in a Merida inspired costume ... I can't remember now who else is staying here, but say hi if you see me. Heading to bed now (and hopefully to sleep!)

I was there at opening yesterday. Official Merch. area was pure "H E double hockey sticks" plus quiet the fire hazard. Grid lock and you could not move. I'm shocked at how bad it was. No C2C shirts It also makes me sad since this was my first time running at WDW. I guess I was expecting a better expo experience. Think I'll stick to the races in Anahiem.

They did have coast to coast shirts yesterday, but they were in a strange location off to the left of the entrance. Everyone was going straight and didn't go that way. Good luck tomorrow!

I'm seriously wondering if anyone at RunDisney stopped to think about what adding several thousand more runners to race logistics does. Because at this point between how everything else went the weekend (plus the corral size (saw them on the way over)) suggests they didn't.

They really need to add a bus only traffic lane for the races.

Hope everyone else did okay. I ended up DNFing because of the heat and humidity. Judging by the fact there are at least 30 other people on the bus I am far from alone.

I pretty much knew it was a lost cause when I got to mile 4 and couldn't run without mild nausea. Feeling better now at least (I was also having problems drinking starting around mile 4). Maybe next year.

Finished my Perfect Princess

Woke up at 2:50am thanks to my neighbors alarm, I had mine set for 3:10. Left rom at 3:30, no line for bus. Major backup at entrance to staging area. No bag check so I went to back area and no line for bathroom so I did that. They opened up the corral entrance early as I just walked through and on to my corral. At 5am I jumped fence and used the trees...got a few burrs.

I knew after getting sick this past week and went to bed last night with a horrible headache, the race could be tough....but 70 and all the humidity, Imam very happy with my 2:10 finish. Already bathed and getting ready to go to our bruch reservation.

Oh I am so sorry to hear you got sick. You did the right thing though! I will see you next year.

We finished! Had a good time I don't feel near as bad as I did after Tink. We didn't end up waiting in any character lines, but did stop at all mile markers and places like the castle and space ship earth. Saw MamaCate(I think I spelled it wrong) on the course. Everyone seemed to love BF's princes protection agency shirt! It was awfully humid out there...made for a few rank spots, lol! Thank God the the sun didn't come out an it stayed breezy!!!!!!! Hope to see some Princesses tonight at Be Our Guest...bf and I are here 'til Wednesday late afternoon! Congrats to everyone who got out there today!
