Pre-race routine:

Shuttle at 4am to the start, stayed warm in the Race Retreat, walked about a mile to the start line.
Event warmup:

More like an event freeze-up. I was seriously cold waiting for this thing to start.

Comments:

Perfect run. Held an easy pace, enjoyed the morning, and just had a great time, despite some cold moments in the first 6 miles.

Waved to a ton of Disney characters, and I have no idea who they were. My lack of children hindered my ability to recognize 3/4s of the characters along the course. But Jack Sparrow and his crew looked seriously cool/menacing.

Loved how the trumpeters heralded my arrival to Cinderella's Castle.


What would you do differently?:

Bring throw-away clothes/bag for the morning wait.
Post race
Warm down:

Hot coffee and eggs.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing. I took it easy and had a great day.

Event comments:

Do this race once, just to do it.

Sounds pretty darn perfect except for the weather!!  If I had known I would have made you a cheat sheet for all the characters as I am very familiar with them all .

Great job out there.
