Another night sleeping with the air conditioner running. I think our spring is sprung and going straight to summer again.

I am sure there will be 1000 questions about Proof of Time before January, 2014.
Here's my question:
I PR'ed today's Half Marathon. I had submitted a 2:29:29 half as my proof of time when I registered for the Marathon. Today I ran 2:25:32. Is it worth emailing runDisney with my updated time? When I registered I predicted a full marathon time of 4:59:00 (I'm imagining my finish time will be closer to 5:15 according to the calculators but a girl can dream...)
The only reason I care AT ALL is that I'm planning to run the Disney marathon in January for time so being placed in the appropriate corral will help prevent having to weave around people. It'll be my 3rd year running the full.
Thoughts?

Amanda

Melbourne Australia - southern hemisphere - so in Autumn now

On the up side, it will be summer here by the time of the marathon weekend. So I will be acclimatised if it's warm in Orlando.

What calculator is being used to estimate the full from a 10k or 1/2 marathon? I have a 10k time of 1 hr 19 min and my best 1/2 is 3 hr 2 min. Not sure wish I should use. I have another 1/2 in 2 weeks and hope I can PR sub 3 hours.

If I remember right, you can't use a 10k time as proof of time for the full marathon, only the half.

I used a 1:19 3 years ago for the PHM. They have me a 2:29 est finish with that!!!! Lol. So whatever they used was generous! I've heard it's better to use the 10k time than a half time

But if you are looking at it for the full, you need to submit the half time.

Has anyone seen the rumors that people have talked to runDisney and there will be separate starts for at least the 5k for Dopey runners? I wonder how that will affect transportation.

If anyone still wants to sign up for the Dopey - My DH & I are registered through one of the Travel agents listed in the registration area of the RunDisney website. I have to buy my hotel and tickets thru them (min 3 nights resort & 2 day Tix) but there are so few discounts as this weekend is usually blacked out that I think I will save money in the end!

Plus the agency I'm using let me ONLY put down a $200 deposit per person plus Running Room fees (I'm in Canada so it's all through them) and let me add on the Pasta Party I wanted and I get a Dopey pin for each of us!

YEAH! I had to buy the other merch and pay for the Breakfast myself but this was way easier on me AND my wallet

YES! There will be a TIMED 5K for any Dopey participants and it is an hour earlier start time - 5:30am I think! Great I get to get up even earlier LOL

I'm sure they will have buses running for all Dopey from host resorts!
