From my experience, bib and packet pick-up wasn't all that time-consuming, so I wouldn't worry about that. What took forever was buying anything in the runD official merchandise booth. The other merchandise booths were crowded, but didn't take an hour to pay. I had my bib within 5 minutes and my packet/race shirt in another 5-10 last year. And that was Fri. morning, which I hear was about the busiest time.

These saved me with 2 hours of waiting before the race, and a mile in I just peeled them off and threw them on the side of the road. I will be doing the same this year as well. Hope this helps!
I used one of my ratty sweat shirts but I loved seeing all the bathrobes out there.
Hmm, wonder if goodwill has some bathrobes?

Another suggestion for places to look for toss clothes (if they have them in your area)....Our high school has a twice yearly garage sale that I still volunteer for (even though the kids have graduated). It is my go-to place for picking up toss clothes. I still have a really nice fleece jacket, sweatshirt and pair of sweat pants that I paid a total of $3 at most for. Didn't need them for NY Marathon (injured/canceled) and it was warm this past marathon weekend, so I guess I'm all set for February.

So don't forget the garage sales!

Hee hee, I'm loving that my son is just about the same size as me now... I'll have a treasure trove of toss-able clothes when he grows out of his current rotation of long-sleeved tees and sweats!

Lots of pages back some of you said that you ran without music because it was distracting. I have to say I decided to try it & I have gotten significantly faster! I'm doing 1 minute walking/ 15 seconds running & I just did 14:40mm, my fastest outside pace ever! Hoping to get to a comfortable 1:1 ratio by race time and I think I'm on my way. There is so much good advice on here so I just wanted to say Thanks everyone!

Thanks everyone - sounds like getting registered for Expo will be okay so!

Not sure that I'd be spending much on merchandise there - although I do like magical sparkly items.

But I want to have my costume sorted / tried out before the race, so I know if it works rather than risk chafing etc on the day!

Still trying to figure out how to make a Stitch running costume

Galloway Pace Groups?

Are there Galloway pace groups at the disney 1/2s that one can join in with? I signed up for the Princess 1/2 and then realized that it's the same day as the Donna's in Jacksonville-- so most of my group is doing that one instead- my DH will go at my pace if there's not a group to join but hoping there is!

In case you didn't get enough "thank you"s for this tip, here's one more!!! I was at Target tonight and happened to walk by a display of knee length socks and I suddenly remembered this idea and picked up a pair! At $3 this will undoubtedly be the cheapest purchase I make for my trip next year

I have never done the run/walk approach so I would love the help! Good luck with your training!!
I just kind of listen to my body and do what feels comfortable at the time. I try run faster and if it feels good, I keep going. If not, I dial it back a little. On the walking segments, I wouldn't say I speed walk, but I am not just strolling either.

Thank you! I am still going to try running as much as I can, but I love having other options available.
