It is nice to hear the story of the split times we were getting on Facebook. Well done!

It was insane. I'm glad we got there early enough to make it to the starting line.

Quote:
Thank you. This reminds me that I do not want to try to do one of these. I occasionally have delusional moments that it might be sorta, kinda, fun. Nope. Not my idea of fun. Ever.


It was really a great experience. I came home and immediately started looking for runs in CT.

My leg just stopped hurting 24/7 at the end of last week. I'm on the shelf till the end of February- then I have my doctors appointment. I can't wait for him to yell at me.

Quote:
Pain aside it actually sounds...like there was some fun in there too!
Yes there as some fun. So will I be seeing you there next Jan?

Cool update and great job to BOTH of you.
Thank you!

Pretty much.

I know. Or tie him up or something!

So what's it going to be? Best 2 out of 3? Best 3 out of 5? Best 4 out of 7? Best 51 of 100?
Good question. Ask the 'other' guy.

Quote:
Not bad for a nearly broken leg.
Now I have a time to beat.

Quote:
I know... Barry should be disappointed by himself. He only beat an injured Tim by 10 minutes. Round 2 is going to be all Tim.
He should be ashamed of himself... picking on an injured guy.

But yes.. round 2 is going to be all me!

You know, I totally forgot you took the picture. I was thinking you left us earlier than that. See, good thing I am doing this report now before I forget anything else.

I think I saw the same guy. He was looking pretty rough. Actually, that's how he normally looks.


Did you ask how his stomach was feeling?

Chris: 2:42:17 (Go Team Barry)
You were team Barry? Is that why you stepped in front of me at the finish line? (I posted the stolen picture in the update. Check it out)

The signs were PG at worst.. hopefully Barry can remember more that I could.

And here I thought it couldn't be more painful.
That's hard core.

We did run past it.

Injury is not failure.
It shouldn't be an excuse either.... seems like I'm using it as a crutch.

Well, I'm glad you had company. Not that you were both in misery, but it definitely helps to have someone there with you.
It was nice to have Chris with me... we fought through the last 4 miles together.

But with an injury, that's an impressive finish. You did great, and finishing a race like that is quite an accomplishment. Nice work, Tim.
Thank you. You coming next year?

Barry picked out the color of the shirt. It was quite bright but I liked standing out!

Thank you! Leg is still sore but it's not hurting all the time. I still can't touch the area. If I put the slightest pressure on it, it feels like someone is stabbing me.

I have WAY too many threads to catch up on to multi-quote, but here are a few comments.

Love the pic of you and Mel on the bridge near France...very nice.

It looks like the DIS Dads had a good meet in World Showcase and, as usualy, the shenanigans were flowoing.

The fireworks as each group of runners took off were awesome.

Love the picture of the Castle as you went by it at the MK.

Whether you beat Barry or finished a little behind him, I am VERY proud of you for finishing the race, especially with the injuries you had while training. You both did awesome and I am proud to know both of you.

And, now that you did not beat Barry, you have an excuse to go back and do it again.

It was cool that they were blasting the Pirates theme music. I think this is when I popped one ear bud out and listened to my ipod in one ear and the course music in the other.

It was right at mile 3. I got a nice picture of the sign while waiting for you.

It was also right around here where that guy in the long sleeve shirt, running tights, gloves and a knit hat passed us as we're wearing tshirts and shorts and just about sweating to death.

We came around the corner and saw the castle all lit up with the icicle lights on. It was surreal.
I think I mentioned to you after we left Main Street, but I don't think I felt any pain while running that stretch.

I know I have footage of this section of the race. As soon as I get it edited (and posted to my TR) I'll post it here, too.

No, they were cheering for you, too. Mostly me, but you too!

I KNOW Bambi got that conversation on video.

Which was pretty bad, by the way. You can hardly see the castle at all.

I told her. She has no idea who you are.

That's closer to what it actually was, I know for a fact that I just muttered "sucker" under my breath. I didn't want to discourage you!

Just kidding - with all of the set backs you had in training, making it 7 miles was quite an accomplishment. We both knew you'd have a hard time finishing, but making it to your goal (the castle) and beyond was a heck of an effort. Congratulations, Tim!

There was a real chance that coming into the race - if you had not been injured - that you could have smoked me. But we'll never know....

That's because I passed him at 7 1/2 and my bean burrito breakfast was starting to rear it's ugly head.

That was weird! Here I am running, not really paying attention to the crowd because I had already seen Bambi and the kids. All of a sudden, I see Mel just hanging out just over the ropes. I remember telling her that you started to fade around Mile 7, but you were determined.

Nope, I can do the gasp that you breath in when you first encounter the castle, but the pain and agony of having just run X-miles… can’t add in that part of the equation.

That… however… had to be a very amazing moment considering the amount of work y’all put into this.

It’s early in the story yet, but congratulations are still in order for all of the folks that did this.

I think I mentioned to you after we left Main Street, but I don't think I felt any pain while running that stretch.

I know I have footage of this section of the race. As soon as I get it edited (and posted to my TR) I'll post it here, too.
Cool! And thanks for forwarding me the youtube links. I'll start the next post with those.

No, they were cheering for you, too. Mostly me, but you too!

I KNOW Bambi got that conversation on video.
So there is going to be something worth watching for on your TR.

Which was pretty bad, by the way. You can hardly see the castle at all.
Her pic came out pretty good.

Quote:
I told her. She has no idea who you are.
Oh.. ummmm..... nevermind then.

That's closer to what it actually was, I know for a fact that I just muttered "sucker" under my breath. I didn't want to discourage you!
I KNEW IT!!

Quote:
Just kidding - with all of the set backs you had in training, making it 7 miles was quite an accomplishment. We both knew you'd have a hard time finishing, but making it to your goal (the castle) and beyond was a heck of an effort. Congratulations, Tim!
I almost fell off my couch when I read this!

Thank you.

Wait, just how intently were you watching? Was it one of those "I hate to see you go, but love to watch you leave" things?
No more like, 'I can't believe that #guy# is gonna beat me'

Quote:
There was a real chance that coming into the race - if you had not been injured - that you could have smoked me. But we'll never know....
No we won't know. But who knows what would of happened with that heat.

That's because I passed him at 7 1/2 and my bean burrito breakfast was starting to rear it's ugly head.

That was weird! Here I am running, not really paying attention to the crowd because I had already seen Bambi and the kids. All of a sudden, I see Mel just hanging out just over the ropes. I remember telling her that you started to fade around Mile 7, but you were determined.
She said the same thing... you just popped into her sight. I think the bright shirts helped.

AND YOU'LL GET MORE OF THE SAME IF YOU CHALLENGE ME AGAIN!
I can't wait....
that's nice is offline
