Not quite like today - it was -19C, feeling like -30C with the wind chill! I'd certainly take the 4C. wink

Good luck tomorrow!

It was a chilly start and an early wake up call at 4am! But the run was really fun awesome it was my moms first race and she did awesome. Now we rest tomorrow and get up at 3am Saturday for the half gaah I really want to try the Dopey challenge someday....or some year laugh

We napped after the race then headed to AK. We did Everest, Safari and met mickey and Minnie. We ate at yak and yeti counter service for the first time and enjoyed it. Other than we just wandered around a bit. We'll be back there on Monday so we didn't feel the need to do too much.

I'm seriously considering trying Dopey. I've never ran a full marathon before though but I figure "go big or go home" laugh

I think I'm going to do it next year. I mean if any races will be forgiving on time it will be Disney races. I just saw his 10k pics today and it looks like a blast. Plus all the fun medals!

Go for it awesome
Just remember though, they are only time forgiving with the 5K. The other races if you don't keep a 16 minute mile pace, they will sweep you.
Are you going Dopey?

Oh yeah I know about the 16/min mile requirement.. I was considering that in my "they will be forgiving" comment. I shouldn't have a problem meeting that. Good luck tomorrow on your half, can't wait to see your medal and see pics yay

It was still chilly this morning at 3:30am when we arrived at Epcot but it was WAY better than Thursday! The Half was a lot of fun though so it was worth it awesome we didn't stop for any character pics, most of the lines were pretty long. We finished in 2:56 which was 10 minutes faster than our first half. Our goal was to finish under 3 hours and we did it yay
I'd like to try Dopey next year but my knee is acting up again. I'm worried I wouldn't finish sad

After the race we napped and went to MK. Rode Buzz and the mine train then had dinner at Chef Mickeys.

Ahhhhhhhh - I looooovvvveeee Jambo. A fact I draw upon when I have to pay my DVC dues! laugh The warm feel, the drums in the background, the scent of Boma. Ahhhh.

Seriously, though, DVC lets me spend so many amazing nights there.

And I have yet to even stay in my other "home" (OKW) - But I will this summer. mickey
