For the w&d last year i had pancakes for breakfast instead of pasta the night before. (honestly icant remember what I had the night before but it might have been pasta. Or a cheeseburger... ) i practiced my eating strategy during long weekend runs at home. I think that really helped me know what to expect for a night race fueling. Jeff Galloway has great hydration tips for a night race somewhere (either run Disney or his site)

I really want to do this race but would probably have to travel alone. Since its also my wedding anniversary date that probably won't happen...

Honestly, a nice breakfast with a hotcake and eggs would be much better than a hearty pasta meal. Then a 'linner' (lunch/dinner) in the mid afternoon you should be good to go. Bring a snack for the corrals and stack hydrated.

Good to be thinking of it now. You have time to try out a strategy if you have questions.

I'll second that recommendation - I didn't bring a snack because I'd eaten plenty all day and I never have an evening snack at home... um, I'm also usually in BED by 10pm at home, not about to run 10 miles. I was hungry, hanging out pre-race! Luckily my friend had brought some cookies and crackers. I would've been fine without (I did have chews for during the race), but I was happier with a little snack. I'll bring a Clif bar this time.

Only thing I'll add is that I remember eating a piece of pizza around lunchtime then a sweet potato about 5ish and took a banana with me to the corral. That (along with my goo) kept me going through the race.

All registered for the 10 miler and 1st ever Disney race! Now I just need the upstate NY weather to cooperate so I can get outside!

And it looks like I may be running solo, can't seem to get my fiance to get motivated to go with me. Is anyone else traveling solo? Especially any first timers?

It's on easywdw with a crowd predictor also. Not sure how much it will get updated from this one, but it's almost time to book ADR's!!

Also a solo runner here. This will be my 2nd WDW race as I did the half marathon this past January. DH is going down with me but just as my cheerleader and to help celebrate our 25th anniversary.

I'd say I'm semi-solo... I'm not rooming with anyone, but I'm meeting an out of town friend for the weekend. But she's significantly faster than I am so, though we'll hang out before and after the race, I'll be running solo.
