Looking for my finish line buddy!

Hello Princesses and Princes!
I am trying to locate a member of the WDW Radio Running Team. She was wearing the blue shirt that had the WDW Radio/Team logo and a Blue bondiband. I know this sounds stalkerish but I promise you it's not. I just want to THANK this young lady for keeping me focused on the toughest part of the run the last mile! She was so kind and sweet and talked me out of giving up. We both crossed the finish line together and in tears (of joy)! her name is Danielle and she mentioned she's a Cast Member at MouseGears as well. Can someone point me to the right direction?

4) less character stops OR space them out better. More on the highways less bank to back in MK

I vote for earlier start particularly in hot weather. It was crowded, when I wanted to run harder I couldn't, but I was totally fine with all that

I came to princess to run with girlfriends, have a unique experience, and take a bunch of goofy pictures. Mission accomplished. It wasn't pretty, but it was fun!

Everyone runs for their own reasons- I think this is not the race for some people due to congestion and higher run walkers. Doesn't mean you don't have the right to run it, just means you might need to accept it going in and find a way to just keep swimming! We were in C and quickly fell back to d and e due to pictures. Finished with G runners but I think we took almost every pic on the course. Which was stupid fun.

Tinkeramy and saysay need their own fan club- so fun to run with these gals!
I really like the idea of moving up the start and spreading out the corrals for all the disney races. Their courses are tight in a lot of places. I don't seem them reducing the number of runners so spreading runners out really seems like the only option.

Just kind of a pet peeve for someone who does this for fun and pictures (and does NOT lie to get into B corral! )
Amen DW was looking for Rapunzel along the whole course and she wasn't there. We found out later she was at the finish, but why weren't their more princesses along the course?

Lesson learned. If I had been there 30 minutes earlier at 3 I might have gotten on an early bus and avoided that wait.
We had issues with buses from POR for the January half in 2012 and I think I read that their were similar issues this year in January too. I wonder what's up with the race busses from that resort.

No and if you show up at the expo all you have to have is a typed up time. It would be really easy to fake.

If she started in A then the timing is right. They didn't let her finish anymore than anyone else- just let her start in A because it suited their needs. Or it maybe was part of the last finisher perks? Dunno
Sean Started in C at Princess too. He was beside me for about 10 seconds till DW took off at a rediculous 7:30 MM pace.

Your blog posts are a hoot! I like your park touring style...it's much like mine...ADD/crazy! And what IS it with Peter Pan? I have that My Disney Experience app too, but I have a couple of other ones that are not Disney-made, but are user-driven Disney ride wait time apps...the BF and I check them randomly at home sometimes just to see what the wait for Peter Pan is...lol. We always think "wow, 30 minutes, must be a slow day at the MK!"

Hi Princesses!

I know others of you took a gazillion pics along the way. I am looking for some of the mile marker signs that I missed. Here are the ones I didn't have:

1 (I know, I know -- I just didn't realize it would come so quickly! ), 7, 8, 9, and 13 (I think I was just ready to be done! ).

I would appreciate any help.

I have 7, 9 and 13. If you would like a copy just PM me with your email and I will be glad to send them. Double checked that I had a 13 without me in it!
