Thanks Scott!

So I've been trying to narrow down where I want to go on my solo portion of the trip but I feel like I can't make any of those decisions until i finalize the plans with my friends for the beginning of the trip! BOO!

Narrowing down food options is tough too. I'll have a TiW card so I'm not going to mind doing signature dining. Jiko is a MUST for me. Sanaa is also very high on the list but do i want to head to AKL 2 nights out of my three solo? Cali Grill is up there... hmmmm!

When I get some alone time (or relatively alone) I'm either going to be shooting pics or hitting the big boy rides. But I guess you don't need to worry about having a 4 year old with you.

Cali Grill is high on my list of restaurants to try one day; mostly because it's at the top of the Contemporary. The only "classy" (I guess that's the word I'm looking for) restaurant I'm doing is Teppan Edo ('Ohana & Mama Melrose are borderline I suppose). I'd also like to try Jiko and Boma; V&A would be good for a special occasion (like completing the half-marathon )

Haha, yeah no 4 year old to tag along yet! I'm definitely dragging my tripod around with me if I can but I'm worried it's going to be too big and bulky. I bought it without even thinking about Disney! Now of course I've thrown out the box and all that fun stuff so exchanging it is out of the question.

V&A is definitely on my list but I think I want to wait until someone does it with me.

Another personal record with the whole running thing! WOOHOO!!

Went to the park today and it was pretty decent out. I've been having a scratchy phlegmy throat though all day and it was acting up again. Tried to ignore it so went out and ran my best one mile time ever of 8:56!! It was tough but I did it. After that one mile though I was DONE! I couldn't take a huge deep breath because my throat kept bothering me so I decided to can the other 3 miles and turned around and headed back to the car. My last mile was a combo of walk/run.

So not the best total run but happy about the first mile.

I've had my tripod for a while now; much longer than I've had the XSi. It's somewhat long when folded up but fairly light. I only see myself carrying it around a couple of nights. I recently bought a Gorillapod and may carry that around for the rest of the trip. Right now I see the Sigma 30mm being on the camera the majority of the time and pulling out the 18-55 to get some wider shots and maybe in AK (but 55 isn't really a whole lot of reach).

Hey, disneygirlinnj ! Just caught up on your PTR.

Ummmm... you do know that it's very common for long distance runners to lose toenails, right? It's pretty disgusting actually .

A slightly belated congrats! That's quite an accomplishment! Looking through your PTR, it looks like you are making very steady progress toward the half! You're going to have absolutely no problems in January.

Haha, thank you Todd! Yeah...sadly I know about the toenails but I think I solved my problem and all ten toenails are still in tact! I was somehow scrunching my toes when I stepped off my food during my runs. I mentally was aware of it during my last long run and luckily...no toe pain and no toenail pain anymore! hahah

Tweet! Tweet!

So I will be twittering/tweeting from the parks. I just created an account just for Disney stuff. My normal 'non-Disney' friends were bugging me about stuff and didn't want to hear all the minute details of my trip when I'm down there!

So come follow me here...

www.twitter.com/disneygirlinnj

yes, what an original name

Hey Jordan! Nope, you don't have to register. Although you can. You can just go to the website and get updates. If you register you can get the updates sent to your phone but that's up to you lol

So quick training update!!

I've been pretty good all week. Went to the gym 4 times, ran twice during the week and then yesterday had my big 10 mile run! Finished in 1:58:06. That's pretty much a 11:48 pace per mile, slowly bringing that speed up!

http://connect.garmin.com/activity/12846017

My legs were tight and sore when I finished but nothing horrible. I guess it also didn't help that I went to play golf with my dad after! By nightfall I was sore. Iced a little and feel decent today. Slightly stiff but still feel good. Bring on Disney!
