Hey Kevin,

Welcome aboard. That's cool you ran the marathon. We went on a 4 day Wonder cruise that week and I was thinking of doing the half on Saturday and then boarding the Wonder on Sunday. Was it as cool as it looks?

Cooler. :thumbsup2 It was my first marathon and was a really amazing experience. In addition to running through the parks and getting that Mickey medal, Disney definately knows how to do it right in terms of logisitics and race support as well.

This will actually be our very first cruise of any kind. My friend and I figured if we wanted to do something over next Christmas, Disney sounded like a good idea and we figured the cruise would be more relaxing than the parks at that time of year (Though we are probably going to fly down a few days early and hit the parks for a couple days beforehand.) It's something we've always wanted to do.

Only 645 days to go! :goodvibes

I think you and your friend are going to love cruising. We are so hooked. I probably drive my friends nuts talking about our Disney Cruise it too much. Is there a forum for the marathon? I'm a wannabe runner

Have you ever heard of the 100 mile races though the desert or mountains?

I volunteered at the finish line of the Wasatch 100 two years ago. Simply amazing... a 100 mile race with 25,000 plus feet elavation gain and drop and people finish it in under 24 hours! WOW!

I've linked the WISH running club just below... we all trained together for the 2006 race and most of us are sticking around for the 2007 race as well. They're a great group and invaluable to me as a first timer.

I have heard about those 100 mile races. NO THANKS!! LOL! I have my limits! I'm willing to do the Goofy next year but that's a little much for me. I'll probably run marathons until I can't anymore, though. And good on you for volunteering!! They can't do races without the volunteers, that's for sure.

It dawns on me that if I run the 2008 race at Disney I'll be tapering on the ship.... and I can't think of anywhere better to rest up, LOL. I'm relaxed just thinking about it. :teeth:

solotraveler,

What is tapering?

solotraveler,

What is tapering?

When training for a distance race, you will generally build up your mileage throughout your training program. About three weeks out, you peak in terms of mileage and begin your "taper" where you cut way back on your mileage to allow plenty of time for your legs to recover before race day.

I can't think of a better place to taper than a cruise ship :teeth:

We will be onboard with you. We can't let Monstro cruise without us. We have been cruising with his family since 2002. There are 6 in our party. dw, dd15, dd12, dd9, and ds3. And Me. Atleast that will be all the ages when we sail. It will be our 10th Disney cruise. We can't wait to spend Christmas on Castaway Cay.

Our girls have said the same thing. Disney did a good job sitting us together for dinner. It has worked out great for everyone.
