    Hey I'm just curious, given that the races didn't sell out, does it *feel* less crowded down there this year? Around the parks or in the corrals? Sorry if this was discussed more than a few pages back but I only started reading a few pages ago. I've been trying to stay out of here to cut down on FOMO.

    Hello, this is my first runDisney event, so I cannot talk on how the runs feel compared to others, but I've been an annual pass holder going on 4 years now, and the parks themselves seem unusually empty. Much smaller crowds than usual in my opinion.

    Congrats 10k'ers!!!

    Here is the current weather forecast:

    Screen Shot 2019-01-11 at 8.34.49 AM.png

    HM (5am to 10:00am) - T+D of 107 to 125 (pace adjustment of +1.5%)
    M (5am to 1:30pm) - T+D of 118 to 125 to 137 (pace adjustment of +2% to +3%)

    The HM and M T+D have continued to hold. For those of you looking at a finish of 4:30 or slower in the marathon, be wary that the forecasted temps have continued to hold at being warmer than ideal. So keep an eye on that as the race gets closer. It may be advisable that you slow the pace from an ideal situation.

    Thanks!! I used to play it so much in highschool and college, but now I stopped and have found running to completely take over my spare time lol.

    He is in corral F I think from what I remember what we talked about last night. He didn't have a time run as he hasn't run like this since 2004 I think.

    The corral F estimated start time is 6:00-6:15am for the HM and M. So if your husband plans to run the HM in 1:30 or less, then try to find an alternative method to get to the finish line. If he plans to run the HM in 1:30 or more, or plans to the run the marathon, then you will safely be able to reach the finish line with a 7am bus (and possibly even later than 7am dependent on his expected finish time).

    This is crazy, but it turns out @rteetz and I might have been separated at birth. Photo credit: @jennamfeo

    Great to see some runDisney all-stars again this morning. I’ll be back by gear check in the morning.

    I saw race merch at the POR gift shop for the 1st time in 7 trips. They had the cups, coffee mugs, hats, and jackets. They also had all of the small, mileage magnets (but not the 48.6).

    Does anyone know if they general runDisney 2019 merchandise from the expo will show up on the shopdisney site? I know last year it did but I can't see anything so far on the site.

    Can anyone repost the character list for the half or tell me what page in the thread it’s on? Trying to plan tomorrow’s strategy.
