When they got to my corral - I remembered my goal and my plan for the race and off I went. The course was awesome and I loved the Disney touches. Seeing the Magic Kingdom castle all lit up (It was still dark-ish when I came here) coming up to it was nothing short of magical - Seriously! It was beautiful, and they had Elsa and Ana up on the castle too. Running through the castle was also really amazing. They had characters out a long the course - If I weren't pushing for a PR this would be the race to stop and take pictures. Which plenty of people did - I passed LINES of people waiting to take a picture with a character mid race. Crazy!! Aid stations were plentiful and well stoked. Other cool perks was that when you ran through the parks the employees where there cheering you on. All the parks except Epcot where closed when I ran through them so it was nice to have that extra support from their employees in a place where other crowds couldn't gather and cheer you on! It was so awesome to see family at different points along the course too! I was pushing for a 4:30 time, but didn't quite make it... I finished in 4:34 which was still a 7 min PR off my previous best time! I was stoked!
