Carolynn -- I think you forgot to add me to marathon weekend for 2014. I'll be doing the 5k and the half. Thanks.

Hey Ducks!

Just signed up for the Oddyssey Half Marathon here in Philadelphia on June 9th. Anyone else planning on running that one? I ran it last year and it was a fun time plus it was my fastest half time to date so I'm hoping I can be even a little faster this year! There are a couple of out and back sections though so it isn't the most scenic or exciting race but they give you a pint glass at the end in addition to your medal and you get a free beer at the finish!

Also, I have a quick question about where to stay during Marathon Weekend next year. We're DVC members and our home resort is Bay Lake so we can try to book that pretty soon. Has anyone stayed there for that weekend? How was the transportation with the monorail and all? I took the bus from Saratoga Springs in 2012 and it wasn't all that bad but we definitely don't want to stay there again.

Anyway, thanks in advance and thanks for reading this! Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far!

Now that's my kind of race, beer at the end!

I stayed at SSR this year, Liz and Joe stayed at OKW, and Tanya stayed at PO, we all walked and met at the corner near OKW, which was right across from the corrals. Very convenient! Will definately walk again next year.

Good morning, Ducks!

Hoping everyone is doing well.

I'm back to running a couple of times a week. I think I'll be concentrating on local 5ks this spring, and maybe sign up for the Air Force Half Marathon. Hoever, I did sign up for the Space Coast Half Marathon (cool medals for the next five years), and will be signing up for the 2014 Family 5K and Donald.

Y'all take care.

We have stayed at Saratoga and Bay Lake Towers. We like BLT because all we have to do is jump on the monorail and its a pretty quick ride. You do have to transfer to the Epcot monorail at the TTC. BLT also seems better for my family to get around to multiple viewing spots. Besides that it was fine. Saratoga is also good, however if you want to ride the bus to the bag check area it can take awhile. They tend to back up there the closer to the race. Hope that helps a little.

Tim

I think I am all caught up!

We got a good dump of snow over the last few days. I'm glad my pager was quiet and I got a snow day in with the kids.

I haven't run since last Sunday (!!!) partly because work interrupted a scheduled run on Wednesday night, and work kept me busy all Thursday as well (and I was super sleep deprived from working 24 hours on Wednesday). And then it was super snowy and cold. I really need to go for a run tonight. TOmorrow is a scheduled 18k that I am doing unless I get called out. I am feeling a bit burnt out still from WDW weekend and the frenzy of running leading up to that. And the weather makes it so unappealing to reschedule missed runs. Sigh.

It's ok to scale back a bit, right? For a week or two? Get your mojo back and let winter have a few days? I have a HM in a few weeks so I need to get back into things this week.

Super excited to be planning a week long trip to Aulani in May!!! That is where I will be when I turn 41. Yay!

Hello Ducks, hope everyone has recovered from the big stom. I can see it is already starting to melt.

Not sure what race I will do but booked my rooms for next January. I am also thinking of the ToT again. But these races are getting pricey. I see the ToT is over $100, and I didn't realize that Goofy is over $300! But then, you get three medals, and three shirts, right?

Yes, these race costs are getting stupid. But stupid is as stupid does, and we'll still be forking over the cash to do it.

I've had to sign up for another race. Need some motivation. My friend found a Lucky Leprechaun 7K, March 16th, in Milwaukee. Strange distance, but I think it's because 7 is a lucky number? Whatever, they give free beer afterwards. Free beer and a Tshirt, any questions?

Hi everyone,
Not much to report on my end, just some swimming and a couple short runs each week. I have been very unmotivated to do any long runs during the weekends. It has been very cold out and I can't get myself to run 10 miles on an indoor track. Hopefully it will get out of the 20's soon and I can get back outside.
Vic: I want to do the Air force half again this year, maybe we will meet up.
Renee: are you still here? How was the Tinker Bell half?
Carolynn: You will love Aulani! It is a fantastic place, I couldn't find anything wrong with it. Even the construction walls were nice.

I love all the 2015 Goofy planning already. I guess I'm in.
I'm waiting for the Wine & Dine registration to open up next month to sign up for that. Debbie and I plan on spending a week at WDW before the race.

Have a good week and hopefully I can report a long run to everyone next week.

Joe

Mingalarba Ducks!

I can't remember if or how much I've talked about this on here...but...after marathon weekend my feet and ankles were having some pains. I prescribed myself time off running. It's been 5 weeks now, of course, and I still have the pain. It was getting better but has now stalled (or slowed to the point that I don't notice). So, I reluctantly decided a doctor's visit was in order.

Saw him today and I've got posterior tibial tendon issues.

No running (I can do any non impact stuff) and I see him again at the end of March. My goal was to start running again in March, but now my goal is April. Fingers crossed!


Phil~I stayed at BLT for marathon weekend 2010. It was good! The only complaint I had was getting back after the race took longer than if you were to ride a bus back to a resort. I have to add though, that that was the freezing year and I was basically an ice cube after the half and was desperate to get back to my room. So it probably felt longer than it really was. (maybe).

I stayed at POP for 2011 and 2012 and that was great! And then this year I was at OKW and that was the BEST! Because walking to the start is awesome. Of course, that can be done away with at any time, but I will continue to try to do it! I'm already booked at OKW for next year, staying with a friend.
