1. The Race:Saturday was the enchanted 10K. This is actually the first race as part of the Glass Slipper Challenge ( the 5K was not included in the challenge). Even thought the weather was suppose to be a little warmer, we still wore our leggings. I hate being cold at the start. I even wore my Princess race jacket from last year but shed it after the first mile when it started to warm up. I carried it for a while and then my lovely sister said she would carry it for me the rest of the way. Since my sister and I were both in corral "A", we decided we would stick together. ( yup, this is the first time I've ever been in corral "A" with my sister in anything other than a 5K...lol. My mom was in the same corral too, but was running a little faster than we were. Since my sister and I were both having knee issues, we wanted to be a little more conservative with this race.
2. The Course:We both really like this course. The start is in the Epcot parking lot (same as the 5k). It goes up on the highway and loops around to the back road before you enter Epcot (like it does for the 5K). But unlike the 5K, the 10K crosses the International Gateway in Epcot and then goes around the Boardwalk area, passes the Swan and Dolphin, and Yacht and Beach Club resorts before entering Epcot again and then finishing in the same spot as the 5K. At one point I actually felt "normal" and pain free as I was running. It has been SO long since I have ben able to run without any pinching in my leg. I actually felt so "free". But that feeling didn't last long.
3.Pictures:Although we like the course, We feel that this race is lacking in characters. We always skip the first character stop because it's just way too dark at that time and the pictures don't turn out clear, making it a waste of time for us to even stop.
We Run Disney who just happened to PR this race. Also we want to give a shout out to everyone who saw us this day and came up to us to say "Hi" ( Marcy, Jenny Lou, Courtney, etc)
