2013 Walt Disney World Family Fun Run 5K

The 2013 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend Expo was held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports and I attended on the Thursday evening, the day before the 5K so that I could pick up all my bibs, commemorative items, goody bags, etc...

I arrived early at Epcot, parked and headed towards the staging area to meet up with some friends.

I was in corral C, but moved back to corral D so that I could start with Rae since it was her first runDisney 5K.  After what always seems like forever, we were off!

The course was crowded, but nothing too bad.  It didn't seem like there were a lot of characters out and the ones that were out had the longest lines I had seen in a long time.  Still we enjoyed our stroll through the park!

After we were done we decided to get in line to get our picture taken with Minnie and Mickey Mouse.  Tip, if you see huge lines before the race to get a picture, take a look after the race as the characters are usually out and the lines aren't always as long.

I am addicted to the fun runs! They are a great way to start a day and perfect for those of us that are not up for a half marathon. And you are right about the lines!
