I can't believe we are soooo close! Only a week until ill be at my fave place! Although I won't be able to see you guys at the meet bc I'm with a large group, I'm REALLY looking forward to running with some of you! Should we pick a meet up spot and time for the full on Sunday? I really don't want to run this myself! I'm coming in on Wednesday and staying at the cabins. DTD and fulton's on wed, MK, expo (anyone want to meet up in the pm?) and BOG on thurs, DHS and chef Mickey Friday, rooting on you halfers from contemp sat am then Epcot and garden grill, marathon on Sunday and MK and Tony's Monday! Yeah!

Was going to run outside today but it was 7 degrees and -5 with windchill so DM it was. Going to run frida, mon and Tuesday and then I'm done until the big day!

I will be at the Expo on Thursday afternoon maybe 2:30ish. We should pick a meeting place before the Full. Maybe under the "W"?

Good Morning Team!

Kimberly - Don’t you just love those below 0 wind chills? Starting to warm up here, I am hoping to get a wind chill index above 0 in the next few days!

AFM - Spend all day putting up Christmas stuff, it was after 4pm when I stopped for a break and decided it was too late and too cold to get the dog walk in, but I did carry boxes up and down stairs a few times during the day! I have a few more things to put up, and I am hoping the weather is warmer and I can get outside with the dogs, and maybe on the bike at least to the mailbox.

Pixie dust to all who are in need!

Have a great day team!

under the "W" of what? the baggage drop off or somewhere else? and what do you think would be a good time?

My schedule:

Thursday: Arriving late to Pop.

Friday: Expo first thing. Perhaps SeaWorld for a bit and then the WISH meet followed by a Pop dinner. Quick trip to DTD for some Babycakes to get my DD9 some gluten-free treats before an early turn-in.

Saturday: Half! Anyone want to meet up prior heading to our corrals? Hopefully, a trip to MK or AK after the race. If not, DTD and some pool time.

Sunday: Hoping to cheer the HM marathoners followed by SeaWorld. Again.

Monday: Heading home after breakfast in DTD.

This afternoon a bunch of the team formed an informal chat via FaceBook to discuss the upcoming weekend. One of the things we decided might work is that we would gather at the "A" baggage drop off area at 3:45am and hang around until 4:15am at which point we would begin our walk to the corrals. Many of us will have smartphones with us for texting/FB chat to help us all stay in touch and gather.

For all who are interested, several of us will be doing this for both the Half and the Full, running together as a team in order to share the fun/experience, take photos, maybe do some pushups at Mile 10 of the Half (lol), and generally enjoy the races. I for one am not going to worry about my finish time (other than not to be swept) and just have fun with our team. All team members are invited to join in the fun. We will probably be running 3/1 intervals at a 11:30ish pace or whatever the group settles in to.

Oh, and for those of us who are staying at the POP, we are planning on meeting at the buses at 3:15 to catch the 3:30am bus to Epcot.

Gee, I hope I got all of this correct. Vicky, oh Captain, please fill in any gaps (or inaccuracies).

Good Morning Team! Sounds like everyone is busy planning for the marathon! Hope you all have a great time!

Kimberly - There are tents in the middle of the gathering area, they are marked with letters of the alphabet, it has been a WISH tradition to meet at the “W” tent in the past.

AFM - Weather a bit warmer, wind chill was above 0! Got dogs for a walk, and got in 30 min of weights and 30 min on the spin bike. Looking forward to a warmer weekend.

Pixie dust to all who are in need!

Have a great day team!

Lynn: I really hope to meet up with you sometime! I feel like I know you and Scott so well from fb and your posts here.

I'm looking forward to meeting up at the Pop buses and then I'll head to my corral. Since the half is my only event, I'm going to see how well I can do. Plus, I'm not as fast as the group anyway

For all running the full, about what time do you expect to arrive at mile 23 or 24? Gotta get my cowbells and poster ready!

Thanks Rick for posting! Nope that's about right You got it all I think!

Elizabeth - I or someone from the group will send you a text when we're close to mile 23 or 24.

Sorry I haven't been around - just getting last minute details in place for next week and the FB chat has kept me busy. Phew!

Happy Sunday, everyone,

Doctor gave me permission to run a bit so I went out for 4 miles this afternoon. Feels good to be back to that. I have a checkup on Wednesday and should be cleared to run the half.

Thanks, Rick and Kim. I'm pretty excited about it too!

Kimberly and Robbie: will you be at the Pop meet?

I know Vicky, Dave, Rick, Kipp, Kim, and I will be.

Anyone else from this team?
