Yep, it's a Disney race! We got to the start 3 hours early which was fine with us. We got to take tons of pics and hit the porto potty multiple times before the craziness ensued!

I gave up my C corral to run with a friend. She had no prior official run longer than a 10K so we were in the J corral. Yep, 10 out of 10. DH (in corral A) started at 10pm, we started at 10:28pm. My experience was very different from the A corral. J was filled with walkers and people who had no established times.

We started out running wall to wall people. And then it became MORE narrow as we all had to funnel under the start banner and the timing mat. It was pretty thick until we hit the first water stop/potty station at mile 1.5. We spent most of the entire run dodging and weaving through people.

We kept on going but by the next stop at mile 2.5 I really had to pee so I decided at this pace I wouldn't make it to the finish so I so I told my running mate to go ahead and stick to the right side and I'd catch up. Our pace was between 1130 and 12 if I had to guess (because I really didn't look at the time). Lines at the portopotty were probably 8 people deep and I'm standing there wondering how I'm going to catch up.

Finally I'm ready to start running again so I took off and I'm feeling like a freaking rock star. I ran between 830 to 915 for 2 miles and I passed tons of people in the process. People were yelling "go peter!" (see pic below) Those were my best 2 miles of the night :) took me just over 2 miles to catch her and at about 4.6 we were back to running together through the end - which seemed like it would never come. The end was on the back side of the park and very anticlimactic. Not to mention you had to walk another mile to bag check.......

Overall I definitely had fun - you can't take these things to seriously. Although I did get a chuckle out of the fact that my running buddy (who is relatively new to running) was getting frustrated with all the walkers LOL There were lots of photo ops with Disney Villains along the way - although the lines for that were longer than the potty lines so we didn't stop for any. It was my first Disney race and much like all things Disney they were well organized and entertaining. I would certainly do another but next time I'm starting as close to the front as I can :)

ok upload pics keeps giving me an error:

Great Job Randee!!! I think that WD does a great job of putting on an event. If you are there for the experience, then you'll enjoy it. If you're looking for more WDW running madness, try the Marathon weekend.

So cool you stayed with your friend. The catch up miles sound fun.

A Disney race (or 4) is on my bucket list.

Looks like you had a blast!  I love how you integrated compression socks into your costume.  Good job!

Nice costume!!  It doesn't matter which Disney race you do, it is crowded, so you definitely need to be in the first or second corral.  Glad you had fun and didn't melt in our Florida heat and humidity!!

Disney, yay!!  That is a great costume, Randee!!  Congrats on what sounds like a very fun race, and it is always more enjoyable racing with a friend.

I'm curious about the 'don't increase your run by more than 10% per week' rule. Is there a minimum mileage under which this doesn't apply?

Training our bodies to work efficiently in Zone 2 will help us keep our HR and pace even throughout an Ironman. This theory would hold true for the bike and run portion of an Ironman race.

How should I go about training for the marathon while also building base in the other two events? Doing this seems like it's causing me to break the 10% rule in running.

Yes, the Dual is a little heavier than Cervèlo’s high end counterparts. But…the price is within reach of the masses and it still incorporates all of the design features that make a Cervèlo special.
