I feel Disney is better in pictures so here are a fun from the race:

I have never ever seen a race with no line at the portapots!!! We got to the start around 4:50 with a race start time of 5:45...I hate that rushed feeling trying to get to the corral or standing in the bathroom line watching time tick by. This race was so much more laid back and I never once felt rushed!
Here is the course map.. from miles 5-9 there were a lot of old time cars, mustangs, cheerleaders, and dancers. One of my favorite parts was running through Angel's Stadium!!! The stands had tons of spectators and boy scouts cheering for us...They also were announcing some of the runners names and when I heard my name I put a little extra pep in my stride. So cool! At this point I had just passed the 1:40 pace group who I had started after. I told myself "do not let them catch you". I finished the race a felt like I could have definitely pushed a lot harder and wished that I had. Here are my stats:
|Overall Place||216 / 14836|
|Gender Place||28 / 9341|
|Division Place||3 / 1647|
This is by no means a PR for me and prior to my injury I had planned for a 1:28 but I definitely think I could have pushed and got a 1:33...Oh well there is always next year! I loved every mile of this race and look forward to doing it again and again.

Who plans on running a Disney race in 2013?
I am doing Goofy's Challenge in January again.
