Earlier than the race, leaving the lodge at 4am…
I managed to blink in 89% of my race pictures. I’m waving and smiling in most of them, however have my eyes utterly closed. Fail!
Race Fail That’s By no means Occurred to Me Earlier than
My different large RACE FAIL that…
A. I forgot to say within the video and
B. has NEVER occurred to me earlier than?!
= My race bib ripped and was flapping round all over the place.
One of many prime holes within the bib ripped and I felt it flying within the wind. I used to be afraid extra of it will rip and I’d lose all of it collectively. So, for a lot of the race I needed to preserve attempting to tuck it underneath my operating belt to carry it down. That didn’t work very effectively and was distracting and annoying.
I thought-about stopping and asking a spectator to re-pin it by simply making a brand new gap (there’s no method I might do it – my arms have been FREEZING and I couldn’t even seize the gasoline inside my belt as a result of my fingers have been frozen).
You possibly can see on this race photograph that it’s utterly darkish out. I feel it was in Animal Kingdom.
That is the a part of the race that’s on the Boardwalk within the latter half of the race. It nonetheless seems to be somewhat sunrise-y and never utterly brilliant.
As soon as we have been operating in Epcot and in the previous couple of miles of the race I bought scared that I missed all of the character stops. I had been ready for the solar to come back up AND to see a personality I acknowledged. I noticed Jafar from Aladdin (I feel between mile 11 and 12) and he had NO LINE. So, I ran as much as take a fast image.
Wine and Dine Half Marathon End Line
Wine and Dine Half Marathon Race end time: 1:54
After the race the photograph ops have been pretty open and didn’t have lengthy strains but so I finished on the mirror to get a photograph.
After the race I rushed again to the lodge to get heat and eat breakfast.
That evening we hit up Epcot for the Wine and Dine Submit Race Social gathering. So many runners have been carrying their medals and able to have fun. This race is held in the course of the Meals and Wine pageant so there are much more scrumptious foods and drinks choices than regular across the World Showcase. We ate and drank all of the issues and went on rides. It was a lot enjoyable and I need to’ve been operating on adrenaline after a 3am wake-up name but it surely was a blast.
