Today was the day! The last day of the 36K challenge, and to complete it we had to run 21.1K to earn another 3 medals! Yes, three medals! One for the half marathon, one for the 36K and the 31K. RunDisney France decided that when you're doing the 36K, you automatically participate in the 31K challenge. An extra medal? I'll take it! But first, we had to run a half marathon!
The alarm went off again at 5:30AM, we left the hotel room 20min later. Yeah, some sleepy eyes here. Oh, and that's the only picture with the Hook, because I forgot to take it with me to the corrals...
We looked outside and we saw that it was raining. So I decided I wouldn't bring my camera, all pictures are made by my phone. Yesterday it was quite chilly in the corral, so we put on a vest that we would throw away and a very fashional garbage bag. It was warm and humid outside at 6AM! We didn't really need the vests, but we did need the trash bag, because it was a heavy drizzling kind of rain!
The pre race entertainment was brought by Cruelle de Vil and the crazy doctor. Didn't have good photos from them, so here are two made by Michel.
First characterstop was Gaston, but we can meet him all the time in the parks, so we skipped him. We later heard that he was switching with Radcliffe with PERCY! We would have definitly stopped for those two.
Loki was there again! But only to make selfies with him from a distance. When we arrived, he was just taking off so the picture completly failed.
Third stop was Hades with pain and panic! I really wanted to have a picture with them, they're so cool! But the line was very long, and they said they would switch in 10minutes. We didn't got them, we got Kronk and Yzma instead. Still fun, but not as fun as pain and panic...
Kilometer 2 till 4 was mostly backstage or on track of the Sudios Tram Tour attraction.
Characterstop #7 was Malificent on the Castle Stage. There was a huge line for her, but we didn't want to wait that long for a 'selfie spot'.
That was it! Report on all three races! I have to say, my legs felt pretty good after the half marathon on Sunday, I was definitly able to run another day. Not ready to run a marathon quite yet, but I still got 2,5months to get there. And honestly, can you ever be fully prepared for Dopey? ;-)
We took a lot of medal photos in the parks! Something I really missed doing last year.
