Also just got DME tags today. Talk about close call! Where are you guys staying? I'm at CBR tomorrow, and AS sports Sat-Mon nights (fly back Tuesday).
I packed mine...might be too hot to wear it though! That is close...we got ours about a month ago. We are at SSR for 2 nights and then AKV for 5! See you tomorrow!

Just left the expo... Got moved from F to E to run with my friend (half.) Our plane was a solid quarter marathon weekend folks... maybe more.

Can't believe I just picked up a half marathon bib. I am not a runner. Not!

Fwiw, I am still in my travel clothes (t-shirt and sweatpants.) I am warm, but not roasting. We arrived at 4pm.

Just finished packing, consuming nice plate of pasta, and about to finish with a warm shower. Then, I might just be headed to bed.

Yup...it feels real now.

That's right... you already told me where you're staying. Glad you'll have a whole week there! I would have had a tough time justifying 3 more nights on a solo trip.

We went to the expo first thing this morning and it was pretty crazy. Picking up my number took much longer than it should have but then once the volunteer explained what was going on, we started to move along. We spent waaaay too much money at the run Disney shop. I've pretty much busted my budget for running stuff this year, which means i shouldn't be buying much at tink next week. (yeah, right) And I'm just about talked into doing marine corp marathon. The medals are beautiful and the description of the course is stunning. Then we hit universal studios. I did fine for a while then hit sensory overload and I was done. In fact, that's a quote. I'm done. My better half knows when I say that, we head for the exits.
Chill day tomorrow. We are sooooo cloooose noooowwwwww.

It's a fantastic event. Definitely worth doing.

building 22 here. Really too close to Epcot Blvd but all in all a good location. Much better than being on top of the Hospitality House.

We are here! Hit the expo for a bit today but planning on returning tomorrow to explore it more thoroughly. We're supposed to have breakfast reservations tomorrow morning at Kona Cafe but I'm already rethinking the time. We're beat....Been up since 3am. Good practice for Saturday I guess. Getting excited. Going to sign up for the Dumbo Double Dare tomorrow.

I got one of those tiny Nathan belt bags,all it holds is my HTC vivid which I have to have to take pictures and contact family.It's very small but I couldn't run with anything bigger and this bag really feels like you have nothing around you,so this will have to do.My gels and GU chomps will luckily fit in a small zippered pouch in my shorts,everything else family will hold so I won't be checking any bags.

Landed at midnight and it's 75 degrees!!!
