    After the hills, I believe it is still another 2 miles. That is where the announcer says your names and you are on video and then you still have to go through Epcot. I just remember feeling like the last mile took forever lol

    I think you will be fine. We started in C last year, did 2/1 intervals most of the way and took a load of pictures and had 2 potty stops. I think our overall time was 3:20. So, based on that, you should be all good!

    You are golden. Race day adrenaline will see you through. (And I'm 42, so rest assured!). Ten miles is great, and the overpass, while steep, really doesn't go on for long. Relax-you'll do great!

    Okay fellow Princesses...has anybody eaten at Kona Cafe for dinner ? I've read some not so good reviews about the food on the new menu and wanted to see if any of you had eaten there lately. Right now we are scheduled to eat there PHM night.

    For anyone worried about the hills...they are not that bad. If you have trained you are ready and will rock it!

    Just tsaw a tweet that Sean Astin will be in the race. You think they will make him start in Corral C? So excited....i mean I probably won't see him, but cool he is going for C2C!

    Last time I ate there was 12/11. Everything that my family had was great (as usual) However I "branched out" and ordered something new. (the noodles) Those...not so good.

    I saw him at Tink last month. He was at the RunDisney booth taking photos. I also saw him taking pictures with fans during the race.

    Funny you should ask about Kona! A bunch of us solo Princesses are eating there on Friday for dinner.

    He'll be in C. He's pretty nice! I got to meet up and chat with him too. Super normal for a Hollywood guy. ;)

    Don't forget to go here.

    http://live.xacte.com/princess/alerts/

    and sign up for runner tracking.

    This can also be done at the expo, but you can save some time by signing up now. It is not a perfect system, but can be helpful and I like to see my time shortly after the race so I send the updates to my phone and they have always been there once I return to the room (I leave my phone in the room during the race).

    Love it!!! Could you roll up socks or a small t-shirt to hold the shape of the hat?

    Thanks for the ideas for the hat. I can do that, but DH said to just wear it and wear it to the expo and get as much use as I can because I put a lot of work into it.

    Is anyone else mildly freaking out at every minor twinge of body pain at this point?! I'm 40+ and a former dancer/soccer player/skier... some amount of body pain is my daily normal, but this race is making me all sorts of paranoid. :rolleyes: :rotfl:
