After the 5K, Colleen and I went to Hollywood Studios, and walked around. A lot. We had dinner at Kona, which was SO good, and then we went back to the hotel and went to bed early. Ish. We tried anyway! It got easier after each race, buy the first couple of nights were harder.
We rolled out of bed entirely too early Friday morning, got dressed, and headed out. It was crazy humid and a little warm out. We waited a bit for the bus, but not long, and made our way back to the scene of the crime.
The theme of the day was Toy Story, and I dressed as the Etch a Sketch. We made it for the PbRC group photo, and I fangirled a bit, privately, that I was standing very close to Pam, from We Run Disney. Sad but true. Not that you can tell, lol. It was dark. And damp.
There was a whole group dressed as Toy Story characters, it was quite hysterical. We went over to hang for a bit, and I found my one and only twin! Of course, a pic was gonna happen!
We went to our corral, and prepped for day two. Strategy didn't change: take our time, but not too much time, and enjoy the day.
Like crazy crazy humid. My costume was just that. A costume. And it wasn't breathing. I had to pull it down for a good portion of the race!
We stopped at mile 1.25 to pee and the line was 16 minutes long. For real. I got a good shot of Peter Pan while we waited though. Woot. Sorry random strangers, but I was not standing on that line!
Back into EPCOT we ran, and to the Finish line! It took us nearly 2 hours, but since at least 20 minutes were bathroom stops, we were super happy with our time!
Bracelet #2 collected, medal collected, food collected, and yes! I totally ate the Skittles first! The pic of the Garmin is Colleen's watch, it pauses when we do, so our official time was 1:33. Not too shabby!
I just know that I left all kinds of stuff out, but all the
I was thrilled to be part of an Inaugural race. Funny story, the word Inaugural is misspelled on the 10K bibs, but we had Dopey bibs, so we missed out on that fun! The course was fun once you got through those first 3.5 miles, which is not great since it is only 6.2 miles! The crowds were amazing, the Cast Members and volunteers were fantastic!
They had some great Characters, which we didn't stop at due to long bathroom lines.
The rude racers started at the 10K, and continued throughout the rest of the weekend, although only a few were memorable, which is good! Definitely a little bit of pushing, nudging, and body checking started during this race, which was frustrating, but obviously not Disney's fault!
Overall, we had a great time, and other than needing more fun during those first 3.5 miles or so, Disney did a great job, as usual!
The food box doesn't change. Ever. Some variety would be nice, especially since we only ate maybe 1/3 of what they gave us!
Like I said, I am sure I am leaving things out, but I guess that happens!
Race Goggles are on now, so a lot of the things I was bothered by then, have faded away now!!
What are you doing to keep your body moving this weekend?
