Well, this is unfortunate....

Okay, first and foremost, I take complete responsibility for this. I'm the one who forgot to log back in to the runDisney site a month after registering for the Princess Half Marathon to provide our proof of time. But I figured, hey, they'll remind me, right? And, even if they don't, they'll have any of SEVENTEEN PREVIOUS RUNDISNEY RACES to look at for a proof of time. Right?

Wrong.

Waivers for the Glass Slipper Challenge came out today, and Wil and I have been assigned bib numbers 26715 and 26776. You're right, those DO seem like high numbers. How high?


Yep, corral N. Third from last corral. Hell, we won't start until after the first corral finishes. Neato!

Now, again, this is my fault. Though one does wonder why I couldn't have just submitted a proof of time when I registered, like most races do. And how does it serve anyone to not want people in the right corral for their pace? It looks like we'll be spending a lot of time weaving through the walkers. (And, again, there's nothing wrong with walking these races -- I'm just sorry that we'll have to get past a few thousand people to get some open space to run.

Amusingly, we backed these on kickstarter a while back, and I feel like we finally have a place to use 'em...


Ding! Ding! I think "the Blockade" is the most relevant "When to use Runbell" example on www.run-bell.com


(this gif just makes me laugh and laugh and laugh...)

Will this work? Will we get screamed at by laydees? Maybe. Will it become something of a game? Probably!

Well, at least the first 5 miles are on the road, so there will be some space to get around people. You did put in your time for Tinkerbell, right?

I did -- I have learned my lesson!!!! The main worry I have is that we have to get out of the hotel room by 11am, so not starting until almost 7, and then running in traffic the whole race, well... doesn't leave a lot of room for error! That said, c'mon Disney, if we're late to checkout because we were running a runDisney race... right?
