    Wow, what a fun pre-race experience. And despite the hefty price tag, the pasta party dinner still sounds fun. I know I always appreciate a little princess face time 😉 have a blast tomorrow!

    The race and the whole experience looks like SO much fun! I’d love to do a Disney race someday – they seem even better than Rock ‘N Roll!

    Thanks for the extra/back scenes info! I had to laugh when I read the part about putting men in the 3rd corral so a woman is the first to cross the finish line. Truthfully, I never thought about guys entering….when I envision the race, it is only ladies running….no doubt because of the name!

    If the pasta dinner price included admission to Epcot, it seems like it wouldn’t be too bad a deal. You are so lucky to get to participate in this weekend for free!

    Also, I tried going to the link to Brittany’s site and landed on a storefront. Are you sure that’s her site?

    Good luck in your races!

    My friend is Belle! You have to get a picture with her in your costume. She was my sorority sister and would be delighted to meet you (although she can’t be out of character!)!

    This is obviously a female geared race, but I can’t helping wondering what if men did something like this- a reversal of sorts. One could argue they typically win most races anyway, but if a national company organized a race and made women start far back I’d think there would be some massive complaining. Food for thought.

    The fact that they don’t start men until the 3rd corral to ensure a female winner is so interesting!! I’m not sure what to make of it to be honest!

    I really appreciate the honest feedback regarding some of the events. I have never paid for a pre-race pasta party and doubt I ever would. But, it’s nice that they had other options unlike most places. Have a blast today in the 5k! I’ll be curious whether its a race you can PR or if it’s jam packed.

    Thank you for mentioning the gluten free thing – everytime I saw where you ate, I thought: I wonder if I would find anything or just get frustrated! Looks like a fun day and good luck on your 5k today!

    That’s so neat to learn all of those stats!! Did she mention what’s in store for the 5th anniversary run?? I’m so sad it’s over already :( Disney does an incredible job with this race and I can’t sing its praises enough!
