Count me in for the BW walk! What time do you think we should leave to get to the staging area?

Doesn't it figure the one time I could "sleep in" a little because I can walk to the race start, it's a night race?

Hmm, I guess we will have to wait to see what our Final race instructions will say as to what time they want us in our corrals. For me, our family is planning on going to church before the race (about 5:00, so we should be back to the room no later than 6:30), so probably leaving the room 7:30-8:00 should be sufficient, but like I said, let's wait and see what the Final Race instructions tell us

I had posted this in a FB group last evening, and I thought I would share here too!!

Time to start thinking of costumes, folks

I'm going as Rainbow Brite this year, I already bought the rainbow socks and suspenders, and I found this online:

http://www.target.com/p/adult-light-...m=rainbow+tutu

It is a rainbow light-up tutu!! Evidently I bought the last one that Target had online But it is also on Amazon too!! (Actually it is cheaper on Amazon, I only ended up purchasing it from Target cause I had a gift card, so essentially I didn't have to pay anything for it!)

I just hope I like how I look in it- I'm not really a tutu fan , but I'm willing to take this chance cause it is super-cute and I love that it lights up since this is a night-time race Last year there were a whole bunch of girls in the blue autism awareness light-up tutus that were super cute!!!

I'll keep you all updated on how it looks when it arrives

I've been thinking and I've got two good ideas: Haunted Mansion ghost (white tech top, white dance skirt - both "stained" and festooned with plastic bugs, worms, etc.) and Taffyta Muttonfudge from Wreck-It Ralph (pink tech top, pink sparkly skirt, pink & white swirled socks/calf sleeves), but both involve skirts... and I swore NO MORE sparkly skirts after last year's TOT. Then I wore one for Princess... and swore again, NO MORE skirts. They bunched up and drove me bananas in both races. So I'm kind of in a pickle, lol!

I think Rainbow Brite will be adorable!

other than the occasional on ramp to the highway it is a pretty flat course. I do wish that it ran through a park... but overall a nice course. (I even maybe am in the minority and liked the gravel "haunted trail" part...even though it was way to congested)

I'm going as rainbow brite to a superhero race in May! I haven't done anything with the costume yet, so I have to get on that... I'd love to do something from the Twilight Zone since in the future we'll all be wearing spandex leotards according to them, but I'm thinking Cheshire Cat for the sake of simplicity and not being repeatedly asked, "So, what are you?"

I am with Ann in that I liked the course overall and was a fan of the run through the woods. I slowed down for this part just so I wouldn't turn an ankle or anything...but seriously, it is a Disney race so I was happy to go slow at points and take it all in.
