The night before the run we set out our clothes and got our running belts ready to go. Morning food was set out and ready to be eaten and I even slept in my running shorts and bra so I'd have two less things to put on in the morning! Ha! I thought that was a great idea! We were both nervous. The time change adding an hour, walking the parks both days beforehand, not to mention me running the 5k and the 10k the days before as well. Being a die hard Disney fan I couldn't be that close to the parks and not go! We did 2 days park hopper and I tried to make myself turn in early at night, but I just couldn't do it! I had to get up at 4am both Friday and Saturday and at 3 am on Sunday, so I was tired! It was all worth it though! We had an absolute blast! If you ever get a chance to take a trip with friends that love something like Disney as much as you and you complete something like running 13.1 miles, it's memorable!
We hopped on the bus and didn't wait too long to get on, although the line got long quick!
The buses at the POP were very well run and there were multiple buses there the morning of the Half.
In our corral ready to start! People were sitting on the ground and it was amazing all the pregnant bellies we saw! So cool to see runners who were expecting and still running strong!
I had on my MagicBand, and my two wrist bands to earn my Coast to Coast and the Glass Slipper Challenge.Waiting around for the race to start felt like forever!! I had to pee before we even started which is so hard to run when you have to go!
