Another vote to go for it. It will help a lot to get yourself moved up for the start.

I have no official time so entered 5:00:01 for the marathon and they put me in corral D. Does anyone know what corral the 4:00 and 4:15 pace team will be in. Or is anyone else in this corral that will be going under 4.

There is a 10k close to Disney but it is the same day as the half...

I will add a slightly different perspective on the last corral and a 10 minute pace.

You will find the first mile and change a challenge as the course necks down to one lane on an over pass. I have and would suggest a path about a foot off pavement on the left. You will not be the only runner on the grass here. I find it smooth enough to run. Though I do follow just far enough behind the runner in front so that I can see his foot falls and try to hit the same spots. I watch the hips and if one dips I know I need to whoa up.

You should be free and open until just after the TTC (mile 4.2) where the course comes back to World Dr. This is again a single lane with a live traffic lane on the right. Stay hard left. this will back up due to the lane but just as much from the steep incline on the other side of the underpass. You will find a sidewalk course left as you near the underpass (under seven seas lagoon). Take the side walk. Use caution in the bottom as there are two metal grates near the bottom and they may feel slick Also, Barney (aka Disney Security) may be at the opposite end of the sidewalk encouraging runners to jump off the sidewalk. Your call as to whether you follow their request. The jump down is 18" or ignore . I have never been challenged for keeping on the walk. (funny, I am really a compliant person, but I did jump up on the sidewalk in 06 and are-stress fractured a tibia)

You should be open to kind of crowded in the Magic Kingdom but once you leave the MK, you will hit race carnage from mile 6.5 through 8. Again a single lane but here more runners seem to have spent themselves. Emotionally it is a let down as you leave the MK.

Again open up through the cloverleaf exit turn from World to Epcot Dr. Stay on the outer high side of this corner to avoid the slow up. The upcoming series of two overpasses can be worked through, usually course left again. From here it will generally be open.

That's how I recall my start in the last corral of the half.

If you push to the front of D, you should be able to get up on pace and keep a 4-415 pace. You will not likely catch the pace teams due to the wave start and the time lost.

If you get a 215- 2:20 or so, you will move up. Just remember to bring a print out of the race results.

A few days later, I got an email from a different runDisney email address that they needed the form for me to defer. Well, I had already done the form they emailed me, and everything had gone through, so I didn't think twice about it.

Then I wondered if they actually canceled my registration, since it would be weird to them to say it was "pending" when I even had my money back. Sure enough, I have a waiver and Bib # 12064 for the Marathon.

Do you think they made a mistake and didn't cancel me? Would I be able to pick up the Bib? I have no idea what I would do with it since I'm still not ready for a Marathon, except maybe hand the shirt off to my SIL who is running so she'll have a spare. The thought crossed my mind to get the bib and try it anyway even though I'm only up to 14 miles in training, lol.
THinking it an error

The thing that surprises me is that the registration spots are significantly down from previous races. I kind of wandered as I usually get an answer on the number of slots open when I ask. THis year, they skipped over the question.

Looking at my notes, last year there were 22k and 24k slots for the full and half.

Could that be because of more goofy, and the goofy people having one bib instead of two?

I was wondering the same thing. If there are about 10k Goofy folks and you add that to the approximately 15k full folks, that's 25k on the course on Sunday. Seems like a lot to me. I think the princess had a little over 20k.

Just got back from the doc. I have pes anserine bursitis and patellofemoral syndrome. I have an appointment on Monday with my podiatrist and hopefully can get a name for a second opinion on my knee. I was given a prescription for physical therapy..but I am skeptical of how much that will decrease the pain.

I was told I can keep running, but the pain is so severe I really can't.

Last night I was walking at my job and starting getting shooting pains in my left foot. I haven't run in a week so I have no idea what the problem could be, but I'm basically falling apart.

I would bring a printout of your results to the Expo.
