View Full Version : The Quest for a Donald Duck Medal !

01-03-2005, 09:52 PM
Well, after a year of training, our quest to be the proud owners of Donald Duck Disney 1/2 Marathon Medals is finally upon us ! The training is officially over, and now it's time to get packed and get to WDW. Joining me are Debbie, NancyK, Susan-Ontario and a whole whack of power-walkers/runners from the WISH board. There is a time limit ... but we will NOT be SWEPT by the sweeper-truck that picks up people unable to maintain the required pace :)

We're all driving/flying at different times this week, so keep good thoughts for no snow/ice storms that can shut down Toronto or Buffalo airports, or make driving hazardous :earseek:

Now I really have to get off these boards and get cracking on the packing. Looks like I will even need some shorts for the daytime :cool1:

We leave for St. Catharines on Wed afternoon, and fly out early Thurs morning.

Take care everyone ...

Hope you all do well in the Marathon. Looks like we are only going to do Universal this time around. We'll definitely do Downtown Disney though.

Have a great trip!

I'm outta here tonight!!!!!

I don't know how I'll get through my last day of work but we'll see. The other member of Team Canada WISH Walkers is Rachael Q from BC. We're a small but mighty group. I think our dinner on Saturday night will have over 30 DIS WISH Walkers at it. Please think of us all next Sunday at 6:00 when we're starting our trek to the finish line. If we have all our Canadian friends with us in spirit we will succeed.

Have a great week everyone and I'll be sure to say HI to Mickey from all my Canadian WISH friends.

Please think of us all next Sunday at 6:00 when we're starting our trek to the finish line.
That's 6:00 A.M. and we have to be there by 4:00! :earseek:

Thanks for all your good wishes. Maintaining a 16 minute mile for 3 hours is not an easy feat. . . especially for one who is NOT athletic in any sense of the word! :earboy2:

I've wanted to run the 1/2 marathon for a while but I can't find the time to train for it. I can't wait to see the Donald Duck medals :)

Thanks everyone for the good wishes. And it looks like the weather is going to be warm. Although all of our recent training has been in the -4 degree range :rolleyes: so it's going to make it a tough decision what to wear. Just when I thought I had it all figured out!

Hope everyone here stays warm!
