RunDisney TOT 10miler

Hi Guys

well i officially started my training last night since biting the bullett. i managed 2 miles in 17 mins i was quite impressed with that. as ive said before i do a walk/jog i cant run due to prosthetic leg.

i think thats a good starting point, im actually terrified of being swept off the course. i will be so embarassed.

im only going to stop for characters i want to see, not gonna stop for ones i can meet during regular park hours. hopin for big bad wolf and hyenas but hopefully i can keep up the pace 16/mile. if i start slowing down towards the end, do they sweep you?

or is it an average of 16mins/mile? or do you have to meet 16mins per mile?

never done this run before and im quite nervous, im also a solo runner now the wife has got a ticket for the party she just wants to watch.

is it a good atmosphere at these rundisney events?

i really dont know what to expect at all.

I am writing down the park hours now and getting my thoughts together to decide on dining! (My fav part.. ) Right now my schedule looks like this:

Thurs Oct 3 - arrive
Friday Oct. 4 - a.m. emh at DHS then off to the expo - and hoping for MNSSHP at night??
Sat. Oct 5 - 5k day then hanging out by pool and DTD
Sun. Oct 6 - MK
Mon. Oct 7 - AK
Tues. Oct 8 - Epcot
Weds. - leaving.

Now... i gotta decide on food. For us, Poly breakfast at Ohana's is gonna be post - race. that's about the only thing i am sure of.. ah... life should be full of such hard decisions to make!
Hello! This will be my first Disney race. I have actually only done one 5K and that was 2 years ago. I am trying to get back into it with my ultimate goal being the Princess 1/2. We have had our trip planned for quite a while, so I was excited to see there was an option while I was there.

We get to make dining ressies tomorrow. We are hoping for an early lunch at Yak & Yeti after the race. That just happened to be the park we had planned for Saturday, so it worked out well.

I am not a fast runner, but maybe we can meet while there because I will be running solo. My DD is only 6 and cannot do a 5K yet.

See ya!

I think rundisney events are wonderful! I think your wife should have a good time at the party both enjoying it and watching the runners finish.

The sweepers have worried me in the past too. Just keep this in mind... When the last person crosses the start, that is when the sweepers head out. If you were in a corral that started before that last persons.... Or were ahead of that person in any way... You will have that much of a buffer between you and he sweepers. I finished last year with nearly a 17 min/mile pace (ran with someone who was not up for faster and I stayed with her... And we stopped for some pics). While we did not have that many people finish behind us... We did not once see the sweepers. So... They don't actually pace you personally... They keep that 16 min mile pace themselves and bring up the rear.... Taking anyone off the course they come across.

I think if you continue to train you should be fine. Just make sure to have a 10k time to submit that will keep you out of the last corral.

If things happen the way I think they do... Only those who get swept will see people get swept since anyone on the course at that spot gets taken off. Then the bus/ shuttle that takes all of them to the finish is discreet so that even people who crossed the finish on their own don't know who was swept

Well, i am thinking i want to go back to the hotel and shower quick then go to late breakfast/brunch.. thinking i am going to book poly ohanas breakfast at 10:30 a.m. -- unless they have an 11am.. then i may just do that.. i believe that's the latest they offer... but breakfast there is a MUST for us.

Hi all! Anyone know if there is a way to update a 10-miler registration with a new anticipated finish time? Out of ignorance, I just submitted the max allowable time since this will be my first 10-miler -- I don't like to over-promise and under-deliver... it's a bit of a problem...

Now that I've actually started training, I realize that was an overestimate and don't want to end up in the last corral. Is my only option to do a 10K between now and then and submit at package pickup?

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

I don't know how I missed that! I've been looking at too many websites and possible 10K races to do, that perhaps I went cross-eyed!!

Perfect timing! I was going to have to track this email addy down this week to submit a time from a 10k I did today. It was a PR for me. (56:35) I was the first female finisher. (which surprised me) Not a huge turn out, but still... my time was much better than any others I have had. I think/hope this will put me in good position for corral placement.
