    The first part of the race, from ESPN to AK and back, probably won’t be too thrilling, but the excitement should build over the last 5 miles through DHS and Epcot. I wanted to do this race so badly, but a third Disney-related trip just wasn’t doable this year!

    I wish I was doing this race! The Princess 5K I did in ’09 was awesome through Epcot. A race through MK would be a zillion times more magical!
