Good to know. My official results are not even online yet. Plus I have another 10K in January and I am hoping I can improve my time a little since the course this past Saturday was all hills. I am hopping the one in January will be flat.

Second, I will have to check that calculator out! Thanks!
I submitted no time and was in E. The only reason no time would mean last corral is if you put a time under 2:45. I don't recall anyone with a time of 2:45-3:00 being in the last corral, proof of time or no. However, it can't hurt to bring it with.

I still have to make some ADRs. Anyone traveling solo want to eat together? I'm open to anywhere. I have an ADR for 2 at Via napoli the night before the race if anyone wants to join me.

Running Alone

Hello!

I will be running my first Princess Marathon in February. I am a military spouse living overseas and will be running alone. I am a wife, mother of two, and a teacher!

I want to run the race at a 12 min or less pace. My goal is to finish in 2 hours 45 minutes or less.

My mom and sister may come down but as of right now I am traveling alone and for sure running alone.

As of right now I am staying at Saratoga. If anyone would like to meet up before the race too, that would be awesome!

Any groups or anyone out there who needs a partner?

Thanks

Hello! What is an ADR? I would love to meet up to eat. Also, would anyone want to meet at the expo?

An ADR stands for Advanced Dining Reservation, and is sort of like a reservation for a Table Service Restaurant. It guarantees you the next available table at a restaurant at a specified time. So if you have an ADR at Ohana for 7:30, the first available table (even if that table is not available until 7:45) is yours. It's a cross between a reservation and a call-ahead type thing.

At many of the extremely popular restaurants (Cinderella's Royal Table, LeCellier, Crystal Palace), no ADR = no meal for you! If you are not so picky with where you want to eat, however, there will be plenty of places that can seat you on a walk-up basis, or at least give same-day ADRs.

I'm technically not a princess, but one in heart for the race, and I will be running solo. I live in the area, going with the fiancee, she doesn't run, so I am doing it alone, dressed as Rapunzel on top of it.

We will love you just the same! That's awesome that you are dressing as Rapunzel. I'm going as her too. Still have to get a costume together. I am also doing the WDW Marathon and since it is right around the corner I have been a little focused on that. It's my first marathon so I am getting a little jittery.

Awesome! There was a dude who ran dressed as rapunzel complete with a wig who finished with me! He was in all my photos! Good luck!

I am running and traveling solo. I run at about a 12 min or less pace too. I do plan to stop for pictures, but would love some company if you want to run together or meet up somewhere along the way. I'm staying at Boardwalk. Saratoga is where we usually stay. Love it there.

Hello!

Yes, that would be great. I would love to stop for photos too. That sounds like fun. I would love to run together! Please no pressure though. I am very easy going and if you need to go a little faster or slower, I understand. We do not have to be obligated to run the entire race together But, if that is how it turns out I would not mind at all.

I think that I am at the 2:45 min corral. This is all new to me. If you send me a private message I will give you my contact info. Currently I am in Spain and will be moving back to the States at the end of the month.

Thanks.
