[ADDED] http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/fullscreen/163859656/ - Change to the satellite layer and you can see the 2012 finish and family reunion areas

Map from staging area to corrals. PoP locations approximate and will vary from year to year
Don't forget about the dozens of people (men and women alike) who will be using the side of the road as a PoP as they walk to their corral.

Dozens? Hundreds... Plus off in the canal on the right side of the corrals where the rule of thumb is guys on the high bank and ladies near the water/gators. Then there is the mass wave of folks who run off course right just after the start line. Creates one of the wirdest optical illusions.

Yeah, you're right. I was trying to be conservative and not scare the first timers.

I am from New Orleans and been to many a Mardi Gras. I graduated from LSU and still have season tickets to LSU football games where tailgating wasn't invented, but was certainly perfected.

I am used to seeing some odd things, but nothing could have prepared me for that.

Last TM run..DONE!
Online checkin...DONE!
Massage this afternoon.
Long stretch tomorrow.
4-5 mile outdoor MP run Wed.

A little work to take care of and only one meeting Thursday and then pack! That should be easy...looks like I won't need much to wear. Oh, it's going to be hot, don't forget the sunscreen!

I thought it was hot last year, no clouds, no breeze. I started drinking the sports drink around mile 13 and I train with water and had no problem. It is watered down. I will have my handheld.

And the waivers seem to be working too. I couldn't see mine last night and they are there now.

Somehow signing up for tracking made it much more real. It's almost go time, people!!

I did the Facebook alert so all 400 of my closest friends can watch or hide me on their newsfeed

I signed up my husband and parents. My two friends who are running it (chances are we'll get separated so it's nice to be able to cheer each other on) and myself so I can get texts about how I'm doing Then I can cheer myself on too!

Oh that's a good idea. I didn't think about that. Off to sign my email up.

I read a post somewhere on here (but of course I can't find it now) about how someone's family was planning on seeing their runner during the half marathon at The Polynesian and then getting back to the finish line to see them finish the race. The problem is that they said that The Monorail was backed up in a previous year and they were not able to get back to the finish in time.

My question is (as I may have read something incorrectly in that post), if I'm starting in Coral A and planning on running the 1/2 at a 9MM pace, would my DW be able to see me at the T&T, then walk over to The Polynesian, then go back to the T&T to get on the Monorail to get to Epcot for the finish? I know when I plugged in my pace, the website said showed that it shouldn't be a problem, but I wanted to check with those that have done this before. I really want her to be at the finish line, but it would be really helpful for me if she was at the other two viewing areas too. Do you think she would be able to see me at all 3?
