Note to myself: this race day wake up times are not particularly pleasant.
The sun's not awake, so I should not be awake.
Edit: Walked out of Jambo House and a bus was sitting there, so no worries about that!
I couldn’t find my sign this morning. Look forthe guy in the red long sleeve Mickey shirt.
But you spared no expense for that sign!
Also, it was nice to meet you in real life. Thanks for the effort to organize!
Congratulations to the half-marathoners and Day 3 participants of Dopey!
I found @rteetz this morning but couldn’t find you. Ah, well, I’ll try again tomorrow.
Anyone planning on taking buses to MK should anticipate a long commute. We’ve been on the POR bus for 45 minutes.
I blinked and completely missed running through Epcot this morning. I feel like I should cross it off the shirt sleeve.
On Magical Express on the way to POFQ! We’ll drop off our bags and then head straight to the expo. Probably won’t spend much time there, going to Disney Springs for lunch and the Void.
Still having a blast!
Latest question - can people spectate inside of Epcot at the end of the race? This is the park we are planning on attending for the day so our spouses would be there already. Do they block off any of the route to visitors?
Well that went as well as I could expect. And it turns out people really like ramen noodles.
If they have park admission, they can get in when the normal opening hours start (remember that Future World opens earlier than World Showcase). There are some creative course crossings that are used to get guests across the route without disturbing the runners. It can take a bit longer to get where you want to go due to the lines, but no attractions are closed.
Congrats everyone running the half today!

My Tweedle Dumb challenge is complete after running the 10k yesterday and 1/2 this AM. The weather took a slight toll on this New Englander this morning, but I throttled down and finished in a respectable time.
I really like this years Donald medal and it’s a little on the heavy side! What I didn’t like was the new post 12 mile finish backstage of Epcot. Just a boring way to finish more than half of the closing mile.
For those of you running tomorrow good luck and be prepared for a warm run! That’s all I got! Off to the pool now and then Epcot/HS later today and tonight.
May see you there. We are at SSR and slept in. Heading to the expo now.
I’ll be the tall large guy in a blue Aulani shirt.
@lhermiston , see you guys at bag check A-C tomorrow!
not as fun as yesterday, but I made it. The sun hit me hard and I walked mile 11. Managed to come back and run/walk 12/13 with 13 being my fastest mile of the day.
Taking a nap now and will hopefully make it to the springs later!
Yeah definitely not much time in Epcot.
If I don’t see you again it was great seeing you this weekend.
Thanks, we had fun talking to you guys!
It was a fun Half this morning! Glad I get to meet a few of you this morning, even if it was brief!
Question—My time is showing as clock time and not net time. Will this correct in the official results or will I need to send an email? I ran with my husband and his results are showing the correct time.
