The second day of the Marathon weekend was filled with two events for us. The Inaugural Minnie 10K and the Kids Races. I was up at 2:00 a.m. to get ready and catch a bus to meet up with Mandy and Diana. I got there early, met a nice guy named Matt from Alabama on my bus and wandered around the gathering area for a while to try and find everyone. While there Danielle Nardi spotted me. So I hung out with her for a few minutes, then went over to Corral A area to wish Kim, her daughter Katherine and Alison good luck on the race. I found Mandy and Diana and in our Corral and we waited for the race to start. The race ran through the outside of the parking lot of Epcot for the first 2 miles and then goes through the back of Test Track, through World Showcase and into the Boardwalk and Beach Club area. You could smell the foods from around the area and we were starving! It was just 7:30 by the time we finished!
I really enjoyed the 10K course. We didn’t stop for character pictures, but we did take pictures along the world showcase. After the race was finished we took pictures outside the Finish area and then I had to rush back and shower, eat and get the kids over to the Kids races.
The Kids races were fun. The kids were excited to participate but were very anxious to wait for the start of the race. We got there early enough so that they were in the beginning of the corral. They had to wait about 15 minutes for the race to start, so I kept them cool with cold water to drink and Kevin waited with them while I scoped out a place at the finish line to get video and photos of them.
When it was time to go, my son took of quick. My husband Kevin ran with Adrienne. My son went by so fast I didn’t even see him! Thankfully I took video so I could find him afterwards. He came in around 8th place. I spotted my husband and Adrienne coming along and in the video recap I was able to see her give Mickey a high five on her way by him!
The kid races were a lot of fun and something we will definitely take part of in the future. View a video of Day 2 of our trip including the 10K race and the kid races along with a few other surprises at the end of the day!
