We spent the weekend there, it is an absolutely AMAZING experience seeing the marathon! Mike didn't run this year but he had 4 teacher friends who ran it. The incredible thing is that Disney is able to organize 25,000 runners along with even more spectators. We watched the winner finish then went into EPCOT and watched for a while near WS around mile 25. It was cool to see their faces as we cheered as they turned the corner and saw SS Earth, knowing the finish line is close - in EPCOT parking lot. I loved watching them run under the monorail and the monorail driver honked and everyone was waving down at them. It's so cool as they run through all the parks, I just love watching, knowing that I will always be a spectator! Unfortunately we could only catch one of Mikes friends, just too many runners. Mike spotted Mark from Off Kilter running, which was cool.
It inspired Mike to start training again, so hopefully I'll be watching for him next year!

Congratulations Sarah and all the runners!
