I had ran the Walt Disney World 5k the day before as part 1 of the Dopey Challenge. My alarm went off at 3:30am and I could hear the rain outside. Never a good start to a race morning. I suited up as Mike Wazowski, wrapped my mylar blanket around me and headed off to get on the bus.
It was definitely wet…not quite as bad as Wine and Dine 2014, but still pretty bad. The race starts in the parking lot of Epcot and basically the first 3 miles are outside on surface roads before you enter Epcot.
I successfully finished. I was cold and wet. I grabbed my medal, a mylar blanket and headed to the bus back to the hotel to thaw out. It was still fun, but running in the rain makes it more difficult for sure, especially because it is still dark out that early in the morning. Stay tuned for Dopey Challenge Part 3, the half marathon.
