A word of GREAT advice... Keep your emailed receipt. As we approach marathon weekend, there will be a buzz about race numbers, waivers, corral placement, etc. If at that time you do not/cannot find your waiver and bib number through runDisney, then you need to start calling runDisney.

Many will find as they use the Visa discount entry or come in through a charity that they cannot confirm their entries online through the runDisnay confirmation link. This is due to the fact that each discount and alternative entry path has a separate and unique Active account with Disney. That is their way of keeping things straight and how they are able to open entries to various groups at differing times.

In for Dopey, as is DH (DEA). Feeling a little insane, especially as I registered within an hour of a 10-mile run this morning - third-to-last long run before the Nike Women's Half at the end of the month! I can't wait to see what the Galloway plan looks like for Dopey; I have a feeling my whole preparation strategy will be different for this set of races. Oh my heck. What have I done?!

My guess is that it probably won't be very different from his Goofy plan, maybe some minor changes.

I'm assuming it'll be similar to that, too - I went Donald in January for my first half, so the biiiiig training plans are entirely new to me. We're going on an adventure!

I would hope the plan is at least altered to have four running days in a row.

I'm positively Dopey.

And absolutely ecstatic.

You know, for now while I'm still doing the mileage necessary for a 1/2 marathon not a 5k/10k/half/full. Then I'll just be the 8th dwarf--b^tchy.

Oddball question: how are bib numbers assigned? Is it order of entry? Estimated finish time?

They are based on corral, which are general based on finish time. For Marathon weekend, the first number indicated which race the person was doing, and then it was numerical based on corrals. You could figure out corral based on the bib number. The only pseudo exception that sometimes throws people off is races with teams, such as the Princess. In that case, the first number indicates that it is a team, so the number may seem much larger than the others. Corral is still based on estimated finish time.

Cool - thanks for the explanation.
