I walked/jogged the half marathon. My sister walked/jogged the goofy. I have been in 3 previous half marathons and 1 full marathon in 2006 and by far, Disney was my least favorite. The medal was the best, but the course was the worst.
We had to be at the start line 2 hours early. We sat on the sandy concrete parking lot of epcot for 2 hours and ended up with lots of sand flea bites.
We had to walk 1/2 mile to the start line.
They have us half the road, instead of the full road, which caused us to never thin out. We were in shoulder to shoulder traffic the entire race. The course went around on/off ramps, which are angled and put extra tension on my feet.
When we finished, they had ran out of medals and told us we could either wait or have it mailed. We waited and they finally brought out more medals and we had to medal ourselves.
It was my worst time, but I attribute that to the weather, the busy course, and the fact that I was 11 weeks pregnant.
My sister on the other hand completely ignores all the elements and just raves and love the marathon and half marathon.
I want to do the marathon just for the medal, but that is the only reason.
