I purchased the race retreat package with my bib. I just love the idea of having a place to relax before getting to the corrals. I met some lovely ladies from PBRC and chatted with them before heading to the corrals. I also ate half a bagel...just to give me so substance because something to eat was better than nothing.
Everyone had to be in their corral by 5am. Hanging out in the corrals is the hardest part about a Disney race. Time moves so slowly in the corrals. I used the time to stretch a little, do some things on my phone, and then I people watched. From the sheer number of people to the race outfits, there was a lot to take in.
One of my favorite things about runDisney races are how special they make everyone feel. Each corral gets a special send off with the fairy godmother counting down the clock and then fireworks at the gun. Corral B was counting down quickly after Corral A and then before anyone knew it, we were off.
