I was up by 3:30 am that morning.I checked the weather and mentioned it looked like it might rainthe whole time. Fortunately, I had trained a few different days in the rain during the Fall to prepare myself for any kind of weather. I headed over to the Epcot parking lot with no trouble and sat in the car for a good 10-15 minutes since it was already raining. After getting through the bag check area, I grabbed a quick picture, found the port-a-potties and got into the corral. The rain, while never super strong, was coming down enough to be annoying. I was already pretty wet.
I took a nice slower pace for the 6.2 miles. With the rain, there were quite a few puddles. My feet/legs were soaked by the end of the 3rd mile. I got to the Boardwalk Resort area between mile 4 and 5. And I must say, it was my favorite part of the course. Seeing all of the buildings lit up with a ton of people cheering you on, really gives you an extra push.
I finished the 10K by running through Epcot. My time was 1:05:14 for right around a 10:30 per mile pace. I was pleased with my pace and time since I was definitely trying not to push it too much. I picked up my medals, got a few pictures, water/Powerade, and runner’s box and was on my way.
This was my first 10K at WDW and I very much enjoyed it (besides the constant rain). I would highly recommend!
