We got ourselves on an early bus, which was smart because the ride to the start is mind numbingly slow due to traffic. It's so much different to race at WDW versus Disneyland where it's easy to plan your stay so that you can walk to the start line.
Run on the Sun (aka T) and I decided to play it smart and run this one as slowly as possible without getting swept. We actually set the pacer on her Garmin so we made sure we weren't too slow. I rarely go to a race alone, but I've never run a half marathon with anyone. Since we were taking it easy for Race #1, we stayed together and had a blast. I highly recommend doing at least one race with a friend and not worrying at all about the time. Disney races are the best for that!

We really concentrated on keeping ourselves at a very slow jog. The cool thing about going so slowly is that at the end of the race, I really think I could have done another 5 miles.
|Not sure what happening here, but I do know that this is where |
the phone tragedy occurred during the Princess Half last year!
|I always take a pic at mile 10, but this time T |
was able to take of pic of ME at mile 10. Wheee!
|This is T's 13th Half Marathon - |
so we needed a mile 13 pic!
|But I never turn down race bling, so I'll take it!|
I will recap the Relay and the rest of our trip soon!
