I don't think I've ever been as cold as I was on the morning of the 5K. Nor do I hope to ever be that cold again. Of course, runDisney gave us a warning:
I had not really brought appropriate cold weather gear to Disney. This was as best as it could get:
Mornings before sunrise--my favorite time in Disney resorts.
I met up with a group from the Princess Posse. I remember Jill did not want to leave the porta-potty because it was warm in there.
The Disney Family Fun 5K theme was a Pluto theme. There are not that many corrals and I think most of the slots are now taken up by Dopey participants.
What a beautiful morning!
I was really too cold to stop.
Coming towards the end
Some thoughts on the 5K as a race:
It's a real good race through Epcot, and has some surprising elevations.
I ran the race too fast. I was cold, and I wanted out. In my next Dopey, I'll stick with the 16 min mile for the 5K, 10K, and half.
It was cold!!! I was still cold at 10:26, when I stopped for Starbucks.
I may not have thawed out completely until two days later.
