After breakfast we hopped on the expo bus outside the Polly (10:30am). The bus was pretty empty and traffic was nonexistent. We made our way there in no time.
Off to expo
And we arrive!
Off to get our bibs!
Once inside the pavilion, we made our way to the Goofy registration pick-up section (which is located in a different area than the half and full registration pick-up).
Best part about running Goofy… the lines are shorter!
WAIT?!? Why am I in corral G?
After picking up our bibs, we headed over to expo to get our race shirts. The area in expo that seemed to have the most congestion was the New Balance booth… this could be why! We had arrived early enough to get our hands on just the right sizes. My Minnie shoes were the last ones in my size and it was only 11:oo am!
The official runDisney New Balance Shoes!
After grabbing our race shirts, we headed to the runDisney section to pick-up the cutest vinylmation Disney has. This bad boy will be living on my desk at Columbia, hopefully no colleagues take him hostage!
So excited to put the medals around Mickey’s neck!
Once we had done a little shopping, shirt swapping, and browsing we headed back to the bus. But not before we got some pictures with our bibs in-front of oversize medal backdrops.
This is my first marathon medal! I couldn’t think of one better!
Why not go Goofy? Ready for some insane mileage!
When we got back to the Grand Floridian we unloaded our runDisney bags to take a look at our new race shirts and pins.
I’m disappointed in the colors this year. Wish Goofy was white again.
The official runDisney pins are so awesome!
We took the rest of the day to explore the parks and have some fun. While mingling with other runners I realized that I should have tried to get a earlier corral because of my previous half marathon times. I decided that the next morning I would go back to expo and get my bib changed. I am so happy we had done all our shopping and waiting in line the day before, because when we got to registration and expo the lines to get in to expo actually went around the field!
Now to conquer the 39.3 miles that comes with that Goofy bib!What are your thoughts on the new runDisney shoes?
