    This is awesome! Looking forward to the rest. Looks like you and your family had a wonderful time. I got to run the 5K with my DD10 and it really was a memory I will treasure. To run with your whole family, just so cool!

    Just got back home so way behind on reading here...

    Missed the marathon morning meetup unfortunately.

    I had a great race for the most part. I went to just a tank and skort and was glad I didn't do layers, it was heavily debated but we had trained in freezing in Nebraska so knew we would be fine.

    Stopped for quiet a few pictures & took a lot on course I'll share once I get through them, who knows you may be in one. Some video too that hopefully isn't terribly.

    I did Disney PR & only 9 minutes off my non-Disney PR so pretty happy with that. I had a major calf knot at Wide World after I stopped for Soccer Minnie, so used biofreeze at the next 2 med tents and tried to stretch it. Then a terrible I've never had so bad side stitch at Studios (maybe from too short of breaths in the cold air), it's not something I ever get. Then in World Showcase my toe that can have nerve issues acted up and burned/hurt terribly like never before. Glad the mile 25 marker wasn't that spectactular so grabbing a pic during was in & out fast.

    Need to catch up here but congrats to everyone else on their race(s) this weekend!

    That is *so* cool! I'm jealous. I've done trip slideshow videos set to songs, but nothing that elaborate.

    Again, awesome! Is all of the video shot on your iPhone? What editing software do you use?

    Yes. The whole trip felt like a European vacation with 5-6 hours of jet lag. Made for some early morning wake ups after the races this past Monday-Wednesday.

    We're hoping that @rteetz is invited to do a segment reviewing Marathon weekend on an upcoming DIS Unplugged podcast!

    I want to thank the person that posted the autographed medal in this thread (I think...though it might have been the Dopey thread). I haven't been able to find the original post.

    I showed my wife (she ran the 5K) and made it her mission to get our medals signed by the characters on Monday. Being (ahem) a macho kinda guy, I was reluctant but we had a real fun time with the characters and the handlers.

    Here's a pic!

    Nice job with both videos. I'm excited to see more.

    Now I have signed medal envy. I remember seeing the post in the thread and thought it looked cool but I forgot to do it.

    All done on iPhone and edited in iMovie on my Mac.

    I haven’t had time to start on the 10k video yet. I need another weekend!

    It was amazing getting to run with the whole family.

    Let's be honest here... we've had some ... less than enjoyable 5K experiences with the kids. :scared: However, they were both great during the looooong, coooooold wait, and both of them LOVED running through Epcot. It's restored my faith in the family fun run. :mickeyjum
