Just looked up DH and my bib numbers and we're in the last corral. Assuming we're there based on selecting the slowest start time. The bummer was my time is much better now than when I initially registered

My DH and I are in the last corral as well. I was bummed at first but then remembered we are going to Disney and doing our first rundisney event. We will have fun no matter on when we start. If we come in dead last so be it. Its better than not even trying. Plus getting to party until the wee hours riding everest after dark is a dream come true!

I am just hoping the next few days go by fast so we can officially be on vacation! So excited.

IGift Bag

I have a question about the igift bag. Is it something we receive at packet pickup or is it something we obtain through online? I have not found any links for the igift bag if it is something we received from Run Disney. This is also my first Disney run event. I am also in the back of the pack in the next to last corral. This is where I belong though, I don't want to get in the way of all the Lightning McQueen out there.

I found it. I had accidentally deleted the email I received last week with the link to the gift bag

I'm getting excited! Just a few days until I fly down. I see we're in for a rainy weekend. Hopefully no downpour during the race... also, wet weather will require me to reconsider running with my iphone. Going to plan for the worst and hope for the best, weather-wise.

Maybe wet weather will keep people out of the parks, and make the Flower and Garden festival look nice and well-watered... although with the amount of rain Orlando has been getting, the flowers of F&G fest have probably been flattened!!

Regardless... I'm ready for a fun weekend!

we could use some of your username here I'm planning on getting those $1 to use while we wait for the race to start and then discard them...I have a running belt that is waterproof and that's where I'll hide my phone (it has run keeper and my music). It's been a mess for these past few days but the strong storms end by 9pm and then just lingering rain. So I'm hoping people that bought the party ticket will stay out and that way we'll be able to enjoy the rides with no waits

Just wanted to send a good luck to all of you EEC runners! I hope you all have an awesome time! I am hoping to try this one next year! I've started running for the first time in my life this year and am about to do my first race on saturday. I'm doing a 5k here at home. Not quite the same as in Disney but excited none the less!!

I will have the medal and also I could take the receipt from Active showing that we paid for the race...
Just wanted to make sure everyone knew the Symphony in the Stars fireworks will be at 9:45 on May the 4th. That's per the time guides issued earlier this week. You can see one over at http://www.studioscentral.com/column...studios-update. I plan on heading to DHS for EMH rope drop. That'll help me get a nap in before heading over to AK that night.

65% is a great temp for running. It may make rides on Kali afterwards a little chilly.

My toddler has been sick all week and NOW I feel like I might be coming down with it too. Noooooooo. I hate running sick. And being at Disney sick is just not right

OK, positive thinking and pixie dust needed. We're driving down Friday and I am so excited. Work's been awful lately and I keep taking deep breaths and counting down the days till I get to go to my happy place. Two more days. Sick or not, I'm going, running and having a great time!

I feel like I'm getting sick too but I'm not going to let it pull me down!! We will finish that 5K without stopping even if we just trot most of the way. Leaving tomorrow - can't wait!!

Jumping on a plane this afternoon!

Since we have no humidity here, we are going to take a brisk walk tonite at AKL to see how bad the humidity is going to affect us for EEC.

First 5K EVER for me and two of my besties!!! Before this January, I wouldn't run from the cops if I had a TV under my arm!!!

Hi EEC folks! Quick question - What is the easiest way to get to WWOS from Animal Kingdom by bus?
Have fun everyone! I did this last year and loved it.
