I probably made it to the bag check area about 4:15. Walked through and then stopped in a wall of people. Could not see why we weren't moving but I figured no where to go until someone moves. Finally it opened up and I could make my way down the service road. It was cool to see some of the things back there - old trams and maybe even an old boat of some sort. No pictures and yes the walk was just about back to OKW. Strangest thing I saw was as I was walking towards the start, there was a guy, bag check bag in hand running TOWARDS me. My guess is he was trying to start and walked over. Boy he was in for a surprise. Sunrise for me was around the Comtemporary and I saw a lone runner after the ramp onto World Drive. He was on his way back to EPCOT already. Sounds like your race was like mine. I was good until I was approaching MK. THen my knee, the right one, the bad one, started hurting. Hurting like I haven't felt in years. Step , hop , hurting. That somehow resolved itself in MK. But then the nausea started about mile 7. Not sure if it was overhydration or under but man, that lasted until I saw EPCOT. Saw a couple of crashes, one as we went under the water by the CR. A woman apparently misjudged the curb and first aid was tending to her and blocking off part of the path. She was all bloody. Next was a couple of road rashes on the back side of the GF. Those last hills were just killing me mentally. I was like up.... again.... you are kidding me. As I entered MK and EPCOT I had to remind myself, I have walked and even jogged a bit up these many times and talk myself into it. Potty breaks, Had to go as the first fireworks were going off. Figured it wa nerves as that would happen to me at a swim meet too. I saw the potties and then did not have to go, as soon as long stretch with no potties.... you guessed it, I had to go. Never did go and I wondered if that is why I was nauseous too.
