Thanks for the heads up... I will let her know this. Does the bus drop them off at the TTA or does she have to goto MK then transfer lines to get to epcot?

Thanks!

Cool... it is going to be awesome!

We've always used the monorail to get around during the race. Your family should be prepared for getting around to take much longer than normal.
thanks!

I'm trying to talk DW into letting me do the Dumbo Challenge out there this year. With that I'd run 4 races to get 7 medals and shirts.
That is really cool.... maybe someday.

I need to submit my 10K time too... 58min. I think I am in corral F.

I might have to sneak in too...

In my second race with a friend I PR'd by 11 minutes. Hopefully you'll find the same type of magic at Disney.
I hope I have the same results of not running for a few weeks before the race too.

Just a fun thing at POR. My kids always head out at night and catch the frogs at Riverside. They hang out in the shudders, on the columns and around the lights. They run around a couple of the buildings and have a blast. Not sure if the kids like that sort of thing, but it kept mine busy for hours.
Sounds good. If we get the Free Dining, we'll be at POR too, if not, we'll do POP. Never seen frogs around before, girls might like that, if not at least looking for them. Gotta keep an eye out for snakes though. I wouldn't mind doing the pole fishing at POR if the chance occurs..

Well fellas, it's been a fun. But I've got 11 minutes left of work, then I'm heading out. Flight doesn't leave until 12:30 tomorrow, so I might be around here a bit in the morning. Maybe not. Enjoy the race to the finish.

We're looking at a similar time frame - APs expire end of August so we want to get one more use out of them. Aug 5th is DW and my 13th wedding anniversary. We're thinking about trying to ride Tower of Terror 13 times that day.

I say this with all respect, but you had better crush Tim in the race. long Live Team Barry
