my experience at the marathon on Disney Marathon Weekend was awesome!
Extremely well organized, easy to get there (although very early start, I like that) AMAZING medals and long-sleeved v-neck champion race shirts (I am very picky, and I love the shirts, I have worn it since the race which never happens for me) and the aid stations were absolutely incredible. Like well-oiled machines. I was a tiny bit suprised at how much of the route was just on road and not in a disney park, however I hadn't been to Disney World before and I now realize that there isn't enough park to run in for 42 kilometers :)
the ONLY thing that was an issue was a little unpreparedness for the freezing temperature and even colder wind. I am fully aware that it is our responsibilities as runners to be ready for anything, but there wasn't really any shelter unless you tried to hide in the gear-check tent or a porta potty, and there were a few large patio heaters set up (like the ones on restaurant patios) in the big waiting area before corral walk out, but none of them were on..
This race was sooooooooo awesome and the volume of volunteers was just unbelievable :) I travelled a long way for this race and it was 100% worth it!
