We got dressed quick and got to the race start at 4:30 to meet up with Mallory. I went to the BOGP lizards meetup at 4:45 and headed to corral B. We wanted to get as close to the front as we could as we wanted to avoid the issues I had with the tinkerbell 10k.
One thing I love about this course is all of the street running up front. We headed down to the convention center and back up. We hit backstage around 2.5 and get into the park shortly after. It gives everyone a chance to really spread out. One great thing is our hotel was super close to the course so Lyn was able to see us at mile .5!
We headed into carsland from backstage and the view is truly gorgeous all lit up when it's still dark. One thing I did not like is there were no characters before mile 2.5 and that was also the first restroom stop! There was definitely one less water stop as well.
We skipped the DJ stop in carsland and continued to the pier where the Incredibles were out and we didn't stop there either. We ran by the pier and again they didn't have any Photopass people there which really surprised me. We went around the pier and stopped for a picture with Goofy and Max.
We continued through fantasyland went backstage and stopped for a photo with Jasmine and NO LINE! Amazing
Overall I enjoyed the race but feel it was the second worse DL 10k course I've done because of the lack of character stops (the stitch one was the worst). I did like the theme this year but I wish Genie and Aladdin had been on the course for pictures.
What was the last 10k you did?
