Dark and early (I can’t really say bright and early because I was up well before the sun) Kevin dropped me off at Epcot and I made my way with the other runners to the starting corrals. I felt a little more confident because I knew where I was going since I was just through it all the day before for the Marathon Weekend 5k. I made my way through the crowd admiring the awesome costumes. I kept the mylar blanket they gave me the day before for extra warmth while waiting to start. The lines for the characters were outrageously long so I knew there was no point waiting because I wouldn’t have time to get a picture before the race started. Little did I know that later in the run I would have a very comical “character stop”….
It didn’t rain on the day we went to Epcot, but it was really cold and windy – and of course if you have been following my Florida trip so far you know I was really sick. I could barely talk this day, but there was no way I was gonna waste my vacation laying around the rental house the whole week!
