2014 Wine and Dine Half Marathon

The 2014 Wine and Dine Half Marathon was a bit of a chilly, wet mess.  It wasn't my best half marathon, but it certainly wasn't my worst either.  I was glad when it was over as I was tired of being in the rain and in my typical fashion, I didn't even step foot in the after party - I was too tired, wet and cold to even think about standing around in Epcot.  And I do not recommend booking a flight home for 6am the next morning and have to catch Magical Express at 3am when you get back to the room after 1:30am...That was a little rough.

If you're interested in doing a night race, this is a great race.  You get some park time and it's not a bad course to be out on (even in the rain).

Walking over to the corral entrance area prior to the race...Notice that it wasn't raining at this point photo 2014wd2_zpscdn5uqvr.jpg
Walking toward the start line - see the ponchos...While it may have been great for keeping some people dry, every time you'd go by one on the course it was like walking by a sprinkler as it flung water at you.

Focusing on finishing or at least not stepping in every puddle I find!

Aren't these guys cute? Until you had to be by them and their packs were clanking loudly with each step. Still, kudos to them for wearing the packs through the whole race!

Phew - it's Epcot and that means the end is near!

That was such a sloshy mess of a race! We stuck it out and closed down the parks at 4:00 am. It was really fun, but I have to come back again when it's not pouring rain! Won't be this year, but hopefully soon :)
