    How long is it from the time you leave your 'warm up' clothes until race time? I saw you can leave clothes in a bag or clothes at the start line can be donated, but nothing says how long you are waiting. Any thoughts?

    Hi Amanda!  Everyone does this differently.  Some people will take off their "warm-up" clothes and check them with their bags.  In that case, it will be a good 45 minutes before the race starts as you walk over to the start line.  The walk does warm you up some, so it really depends on what you prefer.  You will see runners in only sports bras and short shorts, and others in sweatpants and sweatshirts.  And of course, you will also see lots of princesses decked out in full princess gear!
    I like to stay toasty warm right up until the race begins, so I will generally wear at least a sweatshirt for the first mile or so, and then shed it on the course.  It goes to a great cause, so I just wear a sweatshirt or jacket that I would be donating soon anyway. 
    You are supposed to be in your corral at least 30 minutes before race time, so you can count on between 30 minutes and an hour that you will need to consider for your warm-up clothing.  Of course, some years the weather is freezing and sometimes it isn't bad, so that may change what you decide on too.  I hope this helps!  See you at the race!
