Also I have a question, was it just me or was the walk to the corrals shorter this year?

Sorry to hear that. It was very hot. Thank God the sun didn't come out! You definitely did the right thing. I ran a 5k warrior dash a few years ago and two people died from heat stroke. No race is worth risking that. Better luck next year!

That was by far the most crowded race I've ever run.. Bottle necked for the majority of the course except world drive.. Couldn't hit my pace if I tried which ended up being my worst time by over 15 min.. Sigh

They have way exceeded capacity. Walking was a must do because the course never opened up at all. Not magical.

My first Princess half. I thought it was well organized and that they moved people well. I was pleased I didn't wait for a bus either direction. The entertainment was fun and loved running through mk. The heat really got to me and if that sun would have come out, no way I would have been able to keep running. My only mild complaint is that I wish they would discuss race etiquette during the start. I am all for walking/running/intervals, whatever, but if you are walking in a faster corral, please move to the side. Also when you stop, please signal or at least look behind you. I don't know how many people I about tripped over. I don't think people were being rude, just new to races. It would have helped the flow a lot. Overall, lots of fun!

The race itself was organized well. I finished in 2:05, not the best, but good enough, apparently under 1200 people before me. I wore my Rapunzel dress, saw some of you from here. It was a lot of weaving and passing the first 3-4 miles, which I feel took extra out of me, but got to the A corral, so little crowds and opened up as usual. I was disappointed there were very few princesses on the course, but did manage to get Rapunzel at the end in the photo op area.



I didn't wear the braided of the hair, it was a bother during testing after putting it together, so just wore the bondi band with tiara I got.

I saw you! I started in the very back of B so BF could catch up me easily, and just after he did, we saw you run by on the left side of the road...your costume was awesome!

Sorry about your DNF, I'm sure it was disappointing to have to make that decision...or have your body make it for you, but better to play it safe. It definitely was crazy humid. I can't even imagine how steamy it would have gotten had the sun come out. I felt a twinge of nausea/stomach cramp myself I think a bit after mile 7. Fortunately it passed in a few minutes and didn't return.

Sherekhan - it was so nice to meet you on the course today (I was one of the 3 women wearing WISH shirts that you introduced yourself to late in the race). I am sorry we hesitated when you asked our board names - it's just that while we are still very active WISHers, we seldom post on the boards. So we knew you woukdn't recognize our names and felt bad. We really do enjoy all WISHers so I hope we disn't give you the wrong impression of us. Hope you enjoyed the race and hope to meet you again sometime!
