I confess that I’m desiring to run the marathon I’m desiring to win the medals, but not to run it But I won’t promise anything to anyone I’ll run the first 3 races that I came to run, and on sunday, maybe I’ll run But I think I’ll probably stay sleeping Look how it is to run a race… We woke up at 3am we’ll have a quick breakfast, and we’ll go out around 3:30am It also depends of how close to the park you are We are close to Epcot It’s easier if you are staying at a Disney hotel They serve breakfast earlier for those that are going to run You can also take the bus, so you don’t need to worry about the parking lot hour We’ll go by car, so we must get to the Epcots parking lot before 4:30 cause the parking lot closes at 4:30 and the start of the race is 5:30 So we have one hour till the parking lot closes and the start of the race Sometimes we stay some time inside the car and them we go to the start, cause the parking lot is away from the beggining of the race You need to walk a lot Well, we already got here at the parking lot, you just need to look for Epcot on your GPS and follow the signs as well We got here, we usually get here around 4am cause the parking lot closes at 4:30 We stay inside the car for a while You don’t need to stay inside the car waiting, you can go to the start Cause there are some characters to take pictures You can get here earlier to stay in those lines but since it’s super early, it’s super cold So we stay inside the car waiting We go outside when there is around 40 minutes for the start We came outside the car now When you get here you’ll pass through security If you are carrying some bag they will ispect inside If you aren’t you’ll pass direct and there is a walk till the start line You can use the chemical restrooms There is some Marathon weekend backdrops to take pictures If you are carrying some bag, there are some lockers there It’s free You can drop your bags there and then keep walking, we’ll pass close to the stage Look, there is an arena here, with a stage and there’s a guy talking, some people are waiting seated the runners and who isn’t going to run, you can wait here There are many chemical restrooms Really, it’s everywhere You can take pictures with charectes close to the stage But it’s already closed now They’ll be there after the race and now we’ll follow our way to the start And here, there are some people wearing costumes and people without costumes as well Everything is worthy Only people wearing Bibs numbers are allowed at this point There are those letters everywhere Witch is the different times of the race start You must find yours on your Bib… Let me show them At your bib number, it shows your letter, this is the 5km and this is the 10km so you must walk to your letter, to start there cause it depends on your speed It has many different starts The first start is at 5:30 and the others will start later We got to the place that we’ll stay waiting for our start It’s away from the stage The start is at 5:30, but, from our experience of last year We’ll start around an hour later, but it depends of where you’ll stay We are at C on 5km Maybe we’ll start earlier, maybe we won’t Anyways, it depends… Cause it’s a super crowded race and it takes some time till everybody starts running The most part of the race is on the roads, in the dark on the road, inside the parking lots We get inside the parks in some moments But most part of the race is like that Throughout the race there are some lines to take pictures with characters The first character today is Cheap and Dale The squirrels And on every race, every year, they put different characters So there are different characters thoughout the race and on the 5,10, 21 and 42km there are just a few that they’ll repeat It’s nice cause you can take pictures with different characters the only bad part is that the lines are huge! But sometimes it’s worthy, and you can also take a selfie without staying on line After 2km, we got inside the park, we are at Epcot Look, super cute Everything is illuminated, cause the sun didn’t rise yet So the countries are lightened up We are at the countries part, we’ll run just part of it We won’t run the whole park It’s cool cause inside the park, besides being super pretty Cause we were running on the road… There is music playing all the time On the road it’s just in some parts Another cool thing about the Disney structure is that throughout the race there are many restrooms, even on the roads and when you are inside the park, you can use the parks restrooms But there is also a line, everytime There are many hydrating spots through the race They are serving water We are in Paris, there is a huge line to take pictures with the Beast The Beast went away… The sun is rising, look how beautiful the park is Throughout the race there are many volunteers chearing the racers They are encouraging, cheering us This is the finish line There is space for the family, so they can watch you arriving 5km and 10km is empty, but on 21km and 42km it’s always super crowded and now we’ll cross the finish line Now we’ll win our medal We won our medal 5km Look at the medal, 2020 At the end of the race they distribute this aluminum, so you can bring it on the next day It has a disney print on it, and you can use it as a blanket before the race starts and you can throw it away when you are already warm This is great, it helped us a lot last year It was super cold last year They distribute water for everyone here I’ll get one… There is also gatorade Look, the challenge medals you pick up in a different place, but you’ll pick them up on the last day after you finish the marathon So you finish the marathon, pick up the marathon medal Like we just did and then you pass at that place and pick up your medals On that place, they’ll look for your bib number and check if you really ran the 4 races and then you get the challenge medals This line is to take food, they give it on the end of every race It’s a box with a banana I’ll show you inside the box I got the box… Look, inside the box… There is Tortilla chips This almond rice pops, this gogo squeez I like it and it also has Cheddar, so you can dip your tortillas and another fruits bar and a towelette There is a line to take pictures with the characters right next to the stage You can stay in line before or after the race Today there is Pluto, and on the other side there is Minnie and Dopey But there is a different line for every character Guys, today is our second race day, it’s the 10km race The stucture is the same but I’ll show you some different things through the race Do you remember the blanket that we got yesterday? I was warming up my legs People always wear it and them you can leave it here Another nice tip, you can come wearing an old outfit and if you feel warm through the race, you can take it off cause after the race they will colect all the clothes and take it to good will Guys, look, there is a runway at the beginning of the race and there is some characters, today it’s Anna and Elsa, it didn’t happen yesterday Another thing, throughout the race there is this miles signs, sometimes it show the km as well There is always some characters on it Sometimes people stop to take pictures mile by mile There is music and a different character everytime and sometimes it shows the km as well But usually it’s mile by mile Look, there is a Mad hatter here to take pictures It’s nice cause there is some school bands through the race It’s like a small crowd There is a medical center spot here, there are some through the race There are more at the longer races You can go there in case you need something Vaseline, band-aid It’s super cool cause in some races you pass through the Boardwalk hotel It’s where we are now and the guests cheers for us 10km medal! Today is saturday, 21km race The half marathon, Donald Duck Guys, the line to get inside the parking lot was huge… The roads were closed and the traffic was terrible! Cause this race has many more people than the others and there will be even more people tomorrow The 21 and 42km races are more crowded than the 5 and 10km So the parking lot is also super full They were using just part of the parking lot, today there were using everything There are many people at the place before the start and well… Since we are one of the lasts to start the race We take over an hour or more to start the race So there is those bathrooms, Kelly went to use it and them we’ll go to the start I don’t like that on the 21km and 42km the start is super away from where we parked the car So the 5 and 10km you already walks a lot to get to the start But the 21 and 42km it’s super away! And we’ll go there soon It’s nice that on 21 and 42km cause Mickey is on the stage We can’t see it now cause we are far away from it, but Mickey and Donald are on the stage Cause today is Donald’s race So he is the one that announces the start This was the first official start, it’s for the wheelchairs athletes And I think it’s super cool, cause on the half marathon there are more fireworks! and at the marathon…. It’s the prettiest start… They play a different song at every start and the fireworks are prettier! This is the official start Look! Donald Duck announces the race start They serve water through the race, and at some points they serve powerade After almost 8km of roads at the 21km race, it’s the same route at the 42km We are getting in at Magic Kingdom The castle park It’s the prettier part of the race And the cast members are cheering for us here and the park is already opened, so there are visitors inside the park!
