I looked up my 2012 results (F 35-39) to see how they compared to this year (F 40-44) since I turned the big 4-0 in February. I did improve my overall stats:
: 1:47:32; 18/1,354 AG; 107/10,008 G; 464/15,847 Overall
: 1:48:39; 22/1,242 AG; 171/9,340 G; 689/14,825 Overall
I was so happy to be able to spend time with my buddy Charlene in the Finish area while we were waiting for our hubbies. She ran all 3 races (5K, 10K, Half Marathon) and walked away with some major bling - 4 medals! Hubby and I ran Goofy's Challenge earlier this year so we also received an extra medal for completing the Coast-To-Coast challenge!
Disney knows how to bling!
On a side note, the dropout rate seemed particularly high this year. I don't know if it was the heat or too many over-zealous runners and walkers??
From the results page
: 15,847 finishers (10,008 F/5,839 M) which means 2K runners who were registered for the Half did not cross the finish line. Whoa. My sis in law, who started in corral F and finished around 9:45am, said it was literally as if people were passing out all around her. I finished close to 7:20a I think, with a 5:30a Start. Runners in the last couple of corrals wouldn't start until 6am or later. In 80 degree weather.
