I am in corral E but my 10K proof of time that I will take puts me at 3:00:18 for a half marathon.

I will still take it and hope for some for those 19 seconds. It would be nice to have that small cushion and be in D.

What was your 10k time? I was thinking about signing up for a 10k on Jan 6 and was curious what I need to shoot for. :-)

It was 1:21:48 so shoot for 1:20 or less to beat that 3:00 for the half.

Who is doing a 10K on the 6th?

I've found that whatever calculator runDisney uses to predict finish times is pretty generous compared to others I've seen online.

It's in Battle Ground. I think it's called the Resolution Run or something like that. I don't remember who the organizer is.

Then I will go forward with the thought I might get moved up. Here's to being generous.

Question about your corral...is your expected finish time consistent with the times that are in C corral, or do you think you're in C because that's the furthest up that the men were placed? This could pose a problem that I didn't think about before!! OOOOPS! I bought a bib (from a female) last week for my BF to run with me. I got behind on training due to illness and feel like I may need some moral support out there for the second half of the race...possiby physical support in the form of dragging me across the finish line Well...we're both in B...so I'm wondering if they are gonna question it at the corral entrance, and if they don't, is he gonna get nasty looks and comments? He's most definitely an A corral runner, but certainly won't be zipping past anyone this time since he's only there for me...and I'm gonna be sloooooooow. I guess if he gets by the bib-checkers at the entrance to the corral, we'll just hang in the back and hope no one notices. Worst case...if he is made to jump back to C, I'll start in the very back of B and try to get him to work his way up to the front of C...shouldn't take him long at all to catch up to me after he starts. I'm curious what are everyone's opinions...should he just go back to C anyway and not even try to start with me in B if all the men are starting in C? Honestly...would you be irked to see him there? Truthfully, he would probably prefer to just put himself in C to start with if that's where the men are supposed to be anyway. I, of course, would prefer he just start with me to begin with so there's no chance that he doesn't see me when trying to catch up. I suppose I could always just go to C as well and start with him there if that's where he should be...decisions! I really am curious to hear some opinions though...

Since you bought a bib with female name and guys are supposed to start in C I'd be afraid of raising any red flags trying to get him in b

I wouldn't care if a guy was there. He's clearly running in support of you, not trying to win. But I would hate to see an attendant pull him from the race or something because he clearly isn't Jane you know?

So I'd either start back with him in C or just have him run up and catch you. Sounds like that really wouldn't be too hard for him and you might even agree to stop and wait right before going back stage at mile 2 if he hasn't made his way through the crowd just yet. Maybe a 2-3 min stop would be my guess. If that!

Yeah, I thought about that too...just stopping somewhere and waiting. Funny about the name too...he asked "who am I going to be?" The name on the bib will be Amanda. He said "Perfect. I'm "A Man. Duh." LOL...I cracked up!
