I've read on FB that apparently they are willing to mail out T shirts in the correct size if you didn't manage to get one here - you might need to talk to the people at the Expo about this though?

Also - it gets more weird - apparently they ran out of kids race medals as well so started giving kids half marathon medals today! I really hope they don't run out of half marathon medals tomorrow, I am going to be rather upset if I don't get a medal after running/walking 21km!

Anyway, parks were also really busy today - think it's the weekend effect? Wondering if I should just skip the parks altogether tomorrow and maybe go do some sightseeing in Paris proper instead...

They didn't say that at the exhibition, just that I could give my smaller tshirt to a friend :angry: At least I got my medal, good job as I'm hobbling around today on my bad foot. Good luck in the half

I did it! All three done! I did nearly get overtaken by the balloon ladies at the Santa Fe but that was the push I needed to do small bits of jogging to ensure I finished before them!

Yep, saw a kid come into Rainforest Cafe last night with one, but they thankfully had enough for everyone today - I was second to last over the finish line and there were loads left over.

So I survived all 3 races including my second half marathon!

I regret stopping for Mickey/Minnie today as I think if I hadn't done that I would have been faster than my first half marathon - the weather was so perfect for running today! The last couple of miles were terrible though and I really had to drag myself through the last half mile or so, but felt fantastic finishing as always. Though I did have to mill around the area with all the bottles of water for a decent amount of time to recover after - needed to down a whole bottle of Powerade and a whole bottle of water before I felt like I could walk on further!

So sore all over right now though and have bad chafing in a couple of places (the worst bit was I realized around the 18km mark that I was going to have really bad chafing, but at that point you can't do anything so just had to keep on running).

Contemplating going back into the parks with the medals for photos! But they are so heavy!

Well done everyone who ran, wife and I and finished all 3 races. Few things we think could have been better by run Disney but overall good fun. Now just chilling in the hotel before heading to fireworks at magic kingdom tonight.

Well done you - I'm so impressed at anyone who tackles more than 1 race - you are all superstars.

I actually really regret NOT stopping for Mickey and Minnie now but the queue looked so long.
