We got in bed around 8:15 and woke up at 3:45. Talk about a good amount of sleep! I woke up feeling great and got dressed.
We headed out around 4:30 and got over to the start line vary quickly and got an #OGEwokCrew pic before heading to the start. We ended up next to Kim and Gail and chatted with them for awhile and they are the sweetest ladies ever! For real!
We started right on time and headed straight over the overpass and then quickly backstage to the team Disney building. It wasn't near as crowded as the day before but there was still a wide range of speeds. At the team Disney building was Boba Fett but we skipped him to move along. Next we continued backstage and it was REALLY dark. Surprisingly no one tripped or fell but it t was a bit dangerous. We finally got to Main Street around mile 2 but it was just a tease as we soon headed backstage for our first water stop and into tomorrowland. There were stormtroopers out by marvel hero HQ.
We continued through the park, over towards small world and then backstage again.
As you can tell so far, there are very few photo stops which was a bit strange. I think it was so they could sweep a bit easier. We stopped for a pic with the castle though before heading up Main St and over to the DCA.
We finally got back in DCA and ran down through Carsland and towards the Pier. As we exited carsland the droids were out but the line was capped! Boo!
We continued down the pier where I stopped to walk for a long time and took my long sleeve shirt off and felt much better! we continued backstage to where they had a cool cutout with the trash compactor. We decided to save that for the next day based on our outfits.
We finally made it back into the park and ran on the grizzly trail before exiting towards downtown Disney. Right there were speeder bikes on Endor-of course the ewoks had to stop!
so this pic below is interesting in that Devin instagrammed it and it ended up in an article! So crazy.
Afterwards we saw Chris finish and headed to breakfast at GC before going back to shower and meet up for lunch at Cove Bar. We then went to the We Run Social meet up and had a great time!
Overall, I enjoyed myself but I think the new routes with less time on the Anaheim streets and more time backstage doing out and backs is just a recipe for course crowding. I was super upset we didn't get to stop for the droids but that's life.
Did you run the Star Wars 10k? What did you think of it?
