I trained 95% outside and after 7pm (including long runs). Morning races take me awhile to find my pace! Looking forward to this! Hopefully the humidity is not as bad as it was at the Princess. But given that this is Florida, I highly doubt it.

Yea!! I live in Fla and that humidity just killed me, but I finished. I'm more of a morning person.

Nope! I know what you mean about sight...I run without my glasses so at night that may just qualify me as blind.

I am looking at some local stuff mostly 10K.

Think I'll be back for the PHM, but not really feeling the Disney stuff so DH and I have been looking to go south or to the gulf for a couple of days after.

MissBenilda - think I saw a couple of your pics on mfoto unidentifieds. I searched for female and only had "prerace" selected, and saw one on page 229 and one on 535.

I'm at home from work sick and was looking through the pics. Only found 1 of myself - darn. Hopefully that helps and it was you and not some other Jasmine...

We always think "wow, 30 minutes, must be a slow day at the MK!"
Thanks! Normally I'm kinda anal retentive but I just can't pass up a low wait time! Peter Pan - slowest loading ride at the MK!

I wonder if Disney let her finish but swept other people? If so I don't think that is fair.

Any one know anything about it? I know people who have been swept with faster times than hers.
I was actually in corral C and ahead of the pacing balloon at mile 9. The only advantage I was given for the interview was being moved to C.

I know 13 miles just isn't the same if someone starts earlier...

Welcome to the boards. I find this quite interesting since I was placed in E with an estimated time of 3 hours. I guess it pays to be a celeb with Disney. Congrats!

My left foot has been bothering me quite a bit following the race. It didn't start until Monday morning - very sore along the outside edge between toes and ankle and radiating to the top and bottom of my foot when at it's worst. I have avoided running and excessive walking (other than a full day in the parks on Monday). It's gotten better, but still hurts almost a week later and seems aggravated if I am on my feet a lot.

Here's my question: At what point do I give up on "this is just race wear and tear that will subside on its own" and have it checked by a doctor? My overall recovery was longer than usual for this race (quads, hamstrings still sore on Wednesday). Hoping this is just a strain that will also feel better soon, but starting to worry.

Welcome Jenna

I thought I saw you at the MK on Monday...so I went up to this family, and to the person who I thought was you to say Hi and this family thought I was a complete wack-a-do.

Which race did you like better?? Tink or Princess ?? Are you going to attend the DL 1/2 ?

Hey all! I have been playing catch up here on the boards since the race, my internet was super spotty at WDW.

Anyways, I thought the race was so much fun!! I guess I did not run into the big problems others faced? That being said, I definitely think they should start earlier and add more corrals to help relieve the bottleneck areas and increase safety :0) I loved the expo, yes crowded but I have nothing to compare it to so I was pretty much in heaven from the moment I landed in Orlando til I had to leave! Doubt anything could have made me mad LOL!

I got so many pics along the course and decided that time wasn't important (first half so no matter what it'd be a PR!) But still managed 2:40:43 which I am happy about!

Probably won't do Princess next year, but gonna get C2C with Tink and W&D! Hope to see y'all at those races! DH and I will also be at TOT this year! Anybody else planning on that one??

If they are that slow, how did they get in A? Or am I thinking about it wrong?
Jenna Boyd did not start in A. We started in the back of A, and she was standing outside of the corral fencing with the runDisney people just before we crossed the start line. If her bib did not pick up when she crossed the start her net time would be wrong.

We were at animal kingdom on Monday Did MK Thursday before Princess. I liked Tink better. I prefer the CA course and I enjoyed all the support throughout the course/city streets. I also liked that it was significantly less humid. I definitely enjoyed getting to meet and take photos with Jeff Galloway and Sean Astin while on the sidelines at Princess.
I don't know yet about the DL half. I have a lot of local races and I'm working towards a personal goal for the year.
I wouldn't have looked at you like a wack a do
What are your upcoming races/goals?
