As a result of all my trips to MCO, I have run almost every path published by Disney and created several paths that Disney probably wishes I would not publish. I am also known well enough by the Boardwalk guard staff so that they allow me to park and run at the resort, even though they are not really allowing this to occur any longer before 6 AM.

Recently our company was acquired by another firm and I have been a lost ship in my new and very reduced responsibilities. It is to the point that I have been actively looking for better opportunities. A couple weeks ago a job was posted in our Maitland Office. It is a totally different path for me, but one that I was on 20 years ago.

I have an interview in the next couple weeks. Hopefully, without jinxing the path forward, the position reports to a person who I have a great working relationship with. We spoke today to firm up my desire to move forward in the interview process. I guess I am looking for a little pixie dust (and prayers) to help smooth out the process and for guidance on making what I think will be the the inevitable decision. I really must get past the thought of "wouldn't it be really neat to live 5 minutes from Disney."

Thanks for reading....

Coach Charles, sending lots of PD, positive energy and prayers that this opportunity comes through for you. Over the years that we have crossed paths and posts it has been an honor and privilege. I hope those for whom you work truly recognize what an asset you are.

Thanks for all the responses to my question! I will look into my layering options.

Prayers and pixie dust it all works out, Coach!

Good luck to all racing this weekend. I think we're just going to power walk our 3-miles tomorrow as I aggravated the hamstring that was improving with ambitious housecleaning yesterday (and lots of up and down the stairs).

Good luck, Charles! I hope it all works out for the best.

I was glad to see the virtual goody bag. Saves me from throwing out a lot of useless paper. (Although I do still hope for a mini Clif Bar or something tangible in the bag!)

I didn't get the online goody bag email. I don't really care about the goody bag but I wonder - did everyone get one? I signed up for the race using the Disney Chase Visa discount, which might have put me on a different list or something because I'm not able to confirm my registration online, either. (I did contact runDisney and verified it, though!)

Anyway... Who knows. I'm just wasting time online right now before today's long run... !

I didn't get the email either

Can someone post the link for park tickets? I've been holding off buying them hoping that they would offer a discount on tickets like they did last year.

I'm mostly just a lurker here, getting inspiration from all of you to keep working towards Jan 13th. Have a 20+ miler on the plan for today. It's supposed to be a high of 34 today with a chance of freezing rain. Not looking forward to it.

I haven't gotten any emails. How do you verify your registration? RunDisney or on Active.com?

Coach-good luck-fingers crossed for you!

Glad I did my long runs last weekend. Snowing here, not a lot, but enough that it gets a bit dicey out on the road. Tomorrow is supposed to warm up to 50* so we will be out running tomorrow.

Hoping that all of those with injuries are feeling better soon!
