When you list your favorite running gear do you list a poncho?
Like any RunDisney weekend the W & D fun began at the expo. That's where you pick up your packet, shop all the latest running gear and race day wardrobe essentials, and catch great information from the running experts at the speaker series. The expo goes on both Friday and Saturday at this race.

Princess Half Marathon and have kept in touch via social media. Sarah Kate as a form of cerebral palsy and had surgery over the spring. All summer through rehab she worked to be able to finish the 1-mile run this weekend and she not only finished it, but conquered it! Talk about inspiration.
Finally on Saturday night it was time for the big event. The announcing team arrived at the start line around 630pm to rehearse and prepare for the night. We were expecting rain, but were happy to see that it hadn't started as we headed for our start line show at 8pm. We were costumed as different countries from the Food & Wine festival. I was Germany, Rudy was Mexico (yum shrimp tacos), and John was France.
Run All the Races described it like this - "Get dressed to run a half marathon. Get in your shower. Turn on the shower on cool not warm water. Run the amount of time it takes you to finish a half marathon. The end."
Again, it wasn't ideal, however I'm sure it's a race that runners will remember for a soggy long time. I know my Mom will! She didn't run her best time, but she rocked her poncho for 13.1 miles and picked up her 3rd Coast to Coast medal.
What's the worst weather you've ever run in?
Love and absorbent material,
