    Awesome! Glad your Dopey simulation went well!! Here's a newbie question I figured you'll have the quick answer to--I always run with headphones in (well one in, one out) but I notice that no one ever has them on in their character pictures and it got me thinking....are they not allowed? Or am I really just in the minority and the only one who needs them for running? Thoughts?

    When I ran the half 2 years ago, music/headphones were allowed. There are some spots on the course where music is playing, so I took the headphones out for that. The races are much more "social" so to speak, than traditional races, so maybe just a lot of people don't like to wear their headphones at Disney races?!

    They are allowed but discouraged. I normally wear headphones while running as well but not during Disney races. There is a lot of on course entertainment to keep your mind busy.

    I want to wish everyone following along a Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

    I'll be honest I am more excited for this trip than the holidays!

    Only 9 days now!

    Weather Update

    Accuweather

    1/3 - H 60 L 33
    1/4 - H 57 L 34
    1/5 - H 59 L 36
    1/6 - H 72 L 47

    1/7 - H 69 L 52

    Well it looks like its not going to be as warm as I had hoped. That's okay though it is better than the negative wind chills here in Wisconsin.

    Only a few days now! I am beyond excited and can't wait to run 48.6 miles! (many would think I am crazy for wanting to do that)

    3 days until Disney
    4 days until the WDW 5K
    5 days until the WDW 10K
    6 days until the WDW Half
    7 days until the WDW Full

    It’s definitely colder than I would have expected, but it’s warmer than my hometown. Therefore, I’m trying not to complain.

    Enjoy your trip, and all of that running! :)

    Ok I binge read all of this so I could properly enjoy your recaps. Do I get extra credit? Or perhaps points taken off for being late to the ptr party?
