Almost finished with my costume. Was originally going for the magic carpet, until I got the blue skirt and it didn't match. Many failed sewing attempts (and the rise in temperature) later, I thought this might be a good option!

I have never worn a visor when running, but I saw some people in this thread recommending a visor instead of a hat due to the heat. Worst case I'll give the visor to one of my spectators, hold it or worst case toss it if I can't take it.

So cute!!!

I am almost finished with my costume and then I will post a picture of it. No cute yellow legs for Donald though. Way too hot for those.

I only looked for the ADR. Over the weekend I tied all the older ADR's into the new system. The app is kind of cool as it read all the ADRs into it.

Like you my DVC ressie is not on the app, but I also did not link it to the main ressie site. Always a little worried about messing with that on line this close to the trip.

Correct for this marathon they will be gone. Usually they are up through the first weekend after New Years. That means that they are up over many of the marathon weekends. There may be some remnants of Christmas up around the property as we arrive but they will be gone tonight or tomorrow night.

I phoned yesterday to see if it would be appropriate to have an additional conversation since I am in the area this week. He indicated that he was going to phone later in the week as ask if I could come over… great minds think alike. I offered up Friday and Monday as better days. He has a full day meeting Friday but said that was his preferred day. I asked if he was sure… on Monday, he could laugh at me in my post marathon condition. We meet during lunch on Friday.

Thanks for all the well wishes! We will let all know
Best wishes to you Coach! Hoping good things for you!!

And hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

Last year I did the half...never saw any Christmas decorations that were still up. Esp now this year where it seems to be a week later than last year...last year the half was the 7th...in fact, the whole marathon weekened was over by this date last year.
No decorations I am afraid.

Thanks to everyone for the replies about the powder in the carry on-I double bagged it and am hoping the early time we are going that the TSA folks will be too sleepy to care about my Cytomax....

Good luck Coach on the interview/meeting-sending your way!

One more day at work, this time tomorrow I will be strapped into a seat on a SWA plane getting ready to take off for warm, sunny Florida. Today will probably be the longest day of my life

I'm feeling the same way. I know I should be more excited but I'm just so nervous and have so many other mixed emotions.

Last day of work before I leave for WDW. My replacement Garmin is on the UPS truck for delivery, and I'll be doing a setup/shakedown run with it tonight after work. Crossing fingers for no delivery issues or setup issues...

It's supposed to be in the mid-80's today.

Agree, none this year. However, I think you were running hard and had your head down last year. Here are some photos and vid of last year.

Rather than argue, watch the video. At 1:35 there is a flash of Main with it's decorations

Here is a Brightroom photo http://www2.brightroom.com/89678/89678-3396-006

I have several on my personal laptop...

There are still a lot of decorations up. But that was as of last night.

MK still had the tree and the toy soldiers and light pole wraps and the Garland.

All the other parks still had their trees up yesterday as well.

Still a couple days to go, but still is a good chance you will see them up.

And drink people. It is hot and humid. LOL. Definitely not the cool rainy Oregon runs I have been doing.

Travel safe!
