Just some more reasons to add hill work into your training

Slick, smooth concrete made me slow down on that section.

Just fyi-

The Room only discount and SPD discount is available for Jan for Disney Visa card members.

I checked the monorail area and EPCOT resorts for 1/10-1/13.
Poly, CR and Boardwalk only had CL/suites available. WL had courtyard, BC had garden or lagoon (? I forget, knew I didn't want to stay there). FW cabins were available.

I ended up picking Yacht Club which had lagoon views available.

Since the lagoon view is a bit more than I was willing to spend for three nights we will spend Fri night at ASmo and Sat/Sun at YC.

Hi all - So glad to join you all. Will have to find a 8th day of the week to catch up on this thread.
I am running my first marathon with you in January! I've run 4 half marathons, with another scheduled for November, plus teach 3-5 Jazzercise classes a week. My original running partner blew out her knee before signing up, so I'm doing this solo. But totally have to do this -- my 25th high school reunion is next summer, so I have just a few months to run a marathon, lose 15 pounds and write a best-selling novel...

Half to the LEFT, Full to the RIGHT…” That is the point where the new course turns left into the parking lot for the Speedway.

Enough reminiscing
We were just talking about this over the weekend in the corral for TOT. One of the girls was trying to figure out how they ran the Goofy when both the 1/2 and full were the same day. Had a nice giggle. My first 2 marathon weekends were 04 & 05 when they ran the same day. I wonder how many marathoners use to bail at the 1/2 point.

If you haven't booked your flights yet, today may be a good day to look. I just booked round trip from New York, both direct flights for $190.

For those of you who have done a full, how did you feel the day after your first marathon? I already know not plan anything the rest of the day, but I am wondering if I should even attempt to go to a park the day after.

I have actually read in a couple places that the best thing you can do after the full is to walk around. Laying down and doing nothing will lead to some stiff muscles.

This is our first marathon, and once we are done, we plan on getting cleaned up and heading back out to EPCOT for the afternoon.

I've done two marathons (very slowly), and later that day, in addition to the next day, I found it helpful to walk around to keep from getting too stiff and sore. There was no fancy footwork involved, and stairs weren't my favorite thing in the world, but movement definitely seemed like a good idea. Of course, I did sit more than usual in between times walking around. You may want to try the Studios if you want a smaller walking space with numerous attractions that involve sitting. Epcot is spread out, but depending on what you choose to tour, you could still get a good mix of walking and resting.

Change your plans and get to a park. The tendency is to clean up, eat and sleep. Sleep in the worst thing you can do. Take in a recovery meal on your way back to the room, shower (and ice bath if that is what you do – though science is suggesting that is not as wise as once thought) and a light meal and rest for a bit. Stretch out before you rest. I would hang near the room or resort for a little bit to be near a facility once you kidneys kick back into full service. You will need to urinate once that happens. I would then head for the parks. You may not feel much like the upper end rides, but walking, hydrating and snacking is in order. If you feel the need to hit a park bench, stretch before sitting and keep the sit to a short time. The more you walk around the better Monday will be.

Monday, you will still have residual soreness and new delayed soreness will want to kick in Monday afternoon. I find that keeping active on Sunday allows a short jog on Monday morning. It drives the folks who sat around Sunday crazy as I am out slowly running and they are cringing with every step.

We tend to walk Epcot Sunday afternoon. It has lots of benches and coming in from the I Gate means high action rides are not easily reached.

I was wondering if MarathonFoto offers a multi-race package (I guess it would have been Goofy last year, Dopey for this year) on their photo packages. It looks like pricing is about $70 for all photos, but if I'd have to pay that for each race (5k, 10k, Half and Full) that's probably not going to happen.

Do you sign up for the package after you see the photos, or do you have to do that before the race?

In 2011 they did. They even let me combine my full with my DH's half. I got both set of pictures and just paid the Goofy price.

Awesome, thanks! I believe you wait until after the race and you can see the photos before you order.

Me and my wife will be running in the 2014 WDW Marathon.

I am pretty sure the course is exactly the same as the 2013 race, Does anyone know if we will be able to ride any coasters during the race?

I have read previous TR's and some were able to ride Everest.
