But first up, one of favorite parts: The expo!
I thought the race shirts were cute! Still didn't like the material or that it was unisex but I wasn't gonna complain since I knew that for my next Disney race, they were starting with gender specific shirts.
New Balance tee to go with our Minnie shoes.
These cute shirts from Raw Threads (the space one was perfect for my Space Coast Half coming up!)
Brooks tee and got our Lasting Commemoratives art card.
Always Running Forward) for a little bit then met up with Kristin (A Mom on the Run) before we headed into the corral.
Before we knew it, the first fireworks went off!
Soon it was our turn and we were off!
And asking her what she was doing
Oh, so you want to jump? Okay
But soon we were running through Epcot
And before we knew it, we were done!
We finished in 2:37:17--a PR of 8 mins and 13 seconds! My knee was hurting pretty bad at the end. They taped it up but it was a bag of chunky ice and the ice on it hurt even more so I took it off.
We headed into the drink line which was forever long---way longer than last year. Cori doesn't drink so she skipped it. Or so I thought. She actually had found a spot with a nonexistent line and had somehow grabbed an extra beer along with her soda. So I had two!
We headed back to the car to change--so much easier than checking bags and having to change in the bathroom and drag clothes along. And then headed back to Epcot for a little Food & Wine.
Anyways, we met up with Kristin and Adam and grabbed food in Italy. I had the lasagna and it was so good. By that time we were tired and pretty cranky from the earlier issue so we all decided to just head home.
Still, we had a blast at the race!
Some fun finisher's certificates
My official time was 2:37:27. I was 4994 out of 12153 overall. Top half...not bad. I was 2785 out of 8049 for gender. Top half again. And then 574 out of 1514 for division so top half there too.
I love Disney races!
