I did this on the Podcast cruise and it was fun. I never got my certificate though and neither did at least one other person. There is a thread about this on the podcast board if anyone is interested.

Thanks, I was just kidding though. It would have been a cool souvenir but I will survive.

Mushu and I will be doing this in January, one of our last runs before marathon weekend.

Yeah, you read that right, we're cruising just before the race!

Nice blog Dave.

Frank, put your shirt on! LOL. Do you want me to ask them to make a certificate for you? I'll give it to you at WDW.

It was about 88 when we were on that run, I don't know how anyone kept a shirt on, especially cotton ones. Once it hits 50 I never run in a shirt.

Thanks for the offer but I was just kidding. I had heard they did certificates but just figured they discontinued it until the bolg so it isn't a big deal.

Unfortunately I won't be in WDW for marathon weekend until 2011. I am hoping to go for the coast to coast that year. I did both in 2006 before they had the medals. I like to think I was the inspiration for them.

Yes, the 5K is for every cruise, weather permitting I assume.

I know where they got the idea for this

We are about a month away from ours, actually there is a great 10K course that could be done there.
