So I decided to do my 1st 5k, and what better place then Disney World with my best friends!?
It was honestly one of the best experiences of my life so far and I would do another one in a heartbeat. In fact, I have already talked to my friends about doing another one in 2016! Run Disney is absolutely fantastic, and the event is so well organized. You arrive before the parks open, so about 5am, then get in your corral’s to begin the race. Fireworks go off, people are cheering, music is blasting, super exhilarating. Along the route you can stop and take photos with characters if you want or walk/run as you please. There are also professional photographers that take your photos as you run and finish – you can buy them after starting at like 24$! However, It gets rather challenging to run around people and stay with your group and it seems a lot of people walk in the 5k – which is why next time we will do a 10k or 1/2 marathon. Anyways the Frozen 5k was indeed cold, well for FL at 4am but we had a fantastic time running around Epcot. After the race you get your medal, and some snack and are on your way to enjoy the day!
Tips: If you have friends in a higher corral # – go with them.
You will freeze waiting for your turn so have a jacket, or something you don’t care to carry after you get running – or throw it out.
If you want to legit run – don’t do a 5k
