2016 Inaugural Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon

This was an inaugural race - this can be good or bad.  In this case, it was a brand new course so it was exciting to think we'd be doing something different.  The thinking about it was the best part.  I like to explain this course as my least favorite parts of every other Walt Disney World race combined in to one race.  There were bottlenecks, boring parts, dust trails and a horrible ending area.  To cap it all off, the race ended in the parking lot of ESPN Wide World of Sports, which might not have been bad, but this is also where the resort buses were picking up.  The lines for the buses were some of the longest lines I have ever experienced and I waited for a very long time to get back to my resort.
