It does give me inspirations at 51 to keep on as I have only been running for 6 years and maybe I too will be able to break the 2 hour mark by the time I reach 76!
Ooooohhhhh...and I thought it was just me stalking other age groups to see how they compared to me...I really look at way younger than me like the 20's and the oldest group...at age 45 I am getting closer to the older group.

Just wanted to thank all of you on DisBoards! The information and support was awesome. I had such a great time. I know many people have a ton of complaints but coming from overseas I am just so grateful for this experience to run and thought Disney did a fantastic job! Congratulations to you all and thanks again!

I'm hopeful pics on mfoto show up later on. Only a small number show up under my bib number and I know my number was visible on some that haven't shown up yet.

I did go through and "remove" several that weren't me from my account. Hopefully others do the same. If not then they'll never show up in the unidentified photos. I had at least 3 other women's pics under mine...

Joan I know...I was dresses as Anastasia with longhorns2 being my Driz. We really wanted a photo with Cindy and the prince...we got up to the line and out come Aurora and Philip to switch out...which in hindsight a good ting because with all the lines, this was a 32 minute mile and I think had we waited, we would have been swept! We saw the balloon lady after we got back on world drive...first time seeing her and the bikers which added a whole new element to the race.

I was a bit disappointed ALL the princesses were not on the race, i mean it WAS the Princess Half. BUT we had a blast, all felt great at the end and enjoyed the trip. I think 2 years ago they had more characters so it was easier to pick and choose. That being said, I was SO happy to see Mary Poppins this year!

We got some great pictures.

I do think they need to rethink corrals since they go down to one lane. Maybe add more, maybe space them out more, maybe start the men earlier, but longer time from A to B, start race earlier....I think they need to talk to some other races that are big and figure things out. Granted with all the characters, people want to stop for photos, like us. We started in C and ended up with a 4 hour time....because of all the fun stops....that certainly added to crowding in the back where we ended up.

Anyhoo, we paid for it and will again. We had a blast. Not i need to do a 1/2 to see my "real" time without character stops!

I had crap pics from Tink too...and yesterday mfoto website said they were still uploading pics, but today I don't see the message so I assume they are finished...and there's not one finish line pic of me. I high fived Minnie! That company is just terrible. I checked the 'provisional' area too, or whatever they called it and there were just 4 pics there and I was not in any of them. Such a bummer they are so bad and from what I can tell, there weren't too many happy customers from marathon weekend either.

I have never had any good pix from marathonfoto or brightroom UNTIL NOW.
My pix are really pretty good. Pretty unbelievable.

Don't forget to check video of castle and finish....click on photo like you wnat to purchase it and on the next screen on the package area there is some small orange writing that links to your video.

Same here. High fived Minnie at Tink and Donald at Princess. With a photographer right in front of me both times. No pics of either At least for Tink they did get me crossing the finish line, but nada last weekend. And I refuse to pay $$$ for a video that you practically have to use a magnifying glass to see me. And I went through all the unidentifieds too:/ I will say that my on course pics were much better than Tink, but some of those are missing too.

Check the unidentified photos on Marathonfoto.com. Once you click there (under the shopping cart) then look to the left and there is a search filter you can play with. Tons of photos, but if you are desperate to find one, then you can slog through. This is where carrying the basket bit me on the a**. I think it covered up my bib# a good bit of the time. So I'll just have to devote some time to this later!

Blog post up about our first day, in which we strongarm Big Chicken longhorns to get on Expedition Everest!

I was reading your reports of the race since I ran the Princess last year (my first half). I just did my first full at Disney. In regards to marathon foto, we did not get our marathon finish line pictures until about a week after the first pictures posted. So don't despair yet.

I'm so disappointed with the photos from MF. There is not a single one of me from the castle and the finish line. But there are a lot of photos of other runner under my name :-(

Lesson learned. If I had been there 30 minutes earlier at 3 I might have gotten on an early bus and avoided that wait.

Also just saw a note on the marathon foot site that they are still adding photos from the event. Just in case someone else had the same question...
Agreed on POR. I got in line around 3:30 and didn't make it on a bus until after 4. Our bus driver then took almost an hour to get to Epcot and missed the turn for drop off. After some volunteers flagged down our rogue bus, he finally dropped us off on the complete opposite side of the parking lot around 5:00. I made it to my corral minutes before the first corral was released. It was nuts!

Offhanded, I don't recall Disney ever asking which hotel I was staying at. You'd think they would have an idea of how many people they needed to pick up at each resort and schedule busses accordingly.

I was on the first bus from POR which left around 3:10. My mom was at the bus stop at 4 and she said, that it was a mess. She ended up at the monorail and didn't make it to the race area before 6. Luckily she wasn't running, but she felt so bad for all the runners on the bus with her. They didn't make it in time.

Still don't get how they got DH and I at official photo and not me since my solo shot was right before our couple shot. Can't help their bottom line out if they don't get my photo's posted
