    Marathon Weekend 2020

    I did buy an I Did It shirt at the Expo before my first marathon, just because I was pretty sure I'd finish and I wasn't sure if I'd be able to get it after the race. But I didn't wear it until after I finished.

    So far, they've been better than I expected, given how hot it's been in the past week. But last night, it was only 82 and no storms. Monday is usually a day off for me, but I wasn't passing on that kind of weather.

    Marathon Weekend 2020

    Either lots of indoor attractions or water rides like Kali or Splash Mountain or go to one of the water parks. Also getting soaked in an afternoon thunderstorm because even though I brought a poncho, I left it in the hotel room because I didn’t want to carry it around all day. And occasionally...

    Marathon Weekend 2020

    My top three would be: 1) The Magic Kingdom. I love running from the park entry under the railroad and onto Main Street, seeing it lit up with the people cheering us on. 2) The baseball stadium at WWoS. My feet are always hurting by this point but when I get here, I get my second wind and...

    ATTQOTD: I haven't done a tri. My ex did a sprint one years ago. I feel good about the biking and now the running part, but not the swimming. My ex was on her high school swim team but I must have lead in my body. When we first me, she said everyone can float. After several tries, she gave...

    Marathon Weekend 2020

    I've stayed at Pop Century, Art of Animation, the All Stars, Port Orleans Riverside and French Quarter. For the Value Resorts, I like Pop Century. It's newer and I like the rooms. With the gondolas coming, it will be even better. Art of Animation was nice too. I love the Port Orleans...

    Jurassic Park 5k registration is open now. They are also having a Kids 1k run. Early bird registration is through July 14. No course information yet. Looks like they are planning to seed corrals based on predicted finish time and not first come, first serve.

    What’s on your running play list?

    Lots of Disney music and for later in the race when I need energy, AC/DC, Bruce Springsteen live tracks, especially Badlands and Cadillac Ranch. My daughter’s a musical theater major so even some Broadway songs (Newsies, Bandstand, School of Rock). Plus in trying to will the St Louis Blues to...

    Marathon Weekend 2020

    Some that stand out for me: When I was about 6, we were at Disneyland on a cold day and my parents made me wear a long stocking cap. Captain Hook kept pulling it down over my eyes. I'd pull it back up and he'd do it again. Must have been about 5 or 6 times. When my youngest daughter was 1...

    Mountain Dew! But I'm trying, once again, to quit soda, so I need to find something else.

    ATTQOTD: Good question. I think I'd pick the marathon, mostly because of the satisfaction and sense of accomplishment. I've only done one half marathon (not counting long training runs) and I never at any point thought I couldn't finish it. I definitely can't say the same about the marathons...

    Love your Disneyland schedule. Who needs sleep?? Did you get to do Galaxy's Edge? ATTQOTD: It's raining most of the day, but I think we get a 2 hour window around 6 tonight. I printed my RunDisney bib, so can't let that printer ink go to waste!

    Lyft/Uber for WDW Marathon

    I took Uber from the Delta by Marriott near Crossroads to EPCOT the morning of the Half. It took about 20 minutes to get there and part of that was him not quite sure where in the parking lot he could drop me off. It was only $10 plus tip, so it was a great way to get there.

    Sean Astin would be one pick because reading his blog about running Dopey helped motivate me to run my first marathon. And I know I wouldn't kill him by having him run it with me. Then if I can only pick two more instead of all four, I'd pick Joe and Murr from Impractical Jokers because we'd...

    ATTQOTD: I'd do the outdoor route. I don't know why, I just can't run on treadmills. I lose interest very quickly.

    Marathon Weekend 2020

    Boma or Kona Cafe. Boma has so many unique options in addition to the usual breakfast items, plus the frunch/jungle juice/whatever they call it now. And I love the Tonga Toast and macadamia nut pancakes at Kona.

    Yeah, that hill from Jaws Lake to Whoville and the Bates Motel was nasty. I did the tram tour the day before and was thinking We have to run this tomorrow?? I wonder if they wound the course by the soundstages and the city streets set if they could somehow get to a 10k within their property...
