January 10-13, 2013    http://www.rundisney.com/disneyworld-marathon/

Marathon           -20,680 finishers  – Men’s Winning time- 2:21.16      Women’s Winning time 2:48.30

Half-Marathon  -23,126 finishers – Men’s Top Time  1:05.26   ,  Women’s Best Time1:14.56

Goofy’s  Race and a Half Challenge Runner’s ran the Half marathon on Saturday and the marathon on Sunday- This combo (like the other 2 races) sold out .  Lots of healthy/crazy folks did the double dip and ran almost 40 miles in the weekend….


       This year I had several friends and their families running in Florida.  Was a lot of fun to keep track of their efforts as they posted to FB and Twitter and participated in one or more race over the weekend.

        As I do some preparatory work for the 2013 Miller Lite Charlottesville Marathon I look to other events for ideas and improvements. And it is interesting to think of trying to split the days and have the races over a weekend rather than all day Saturday. We would have several runners double dip but the city would balk at the thought of such a thing. The impact to the streets would be too great and too long.

Looking forward to the 2013 Charlottesville marathon and Half Marathon
