Hi Jenny! I am subbing to your trip report. I sooooo badly want to run the half-marathon next year! So I am very interested in your report!

I am not a runner, just a walker. I love, love, love to walk but really want to convert to running.

Do you have a good training program to refer me to?

Thanks for the report. I am loving it!

It's kind of hard to ride with someone when your on vacation by yourself
I knew that impulsive decision would come back to haunt me!

Awesome view! I stayed at the Contemporary once... when I was 5 yrs old.
I don't think that I'll ever stay at a MK resort hotel, I'm too in love with the Boardwalk Inn. The room you guys had was nice. ... and back to that view!

I'm sorry that you guys missed the Pop meet. I *ahemskippedahem* it myself. Friday had been my arrival day as well and I wasn't up to rush over for a meet after travel, EXPO, ect... I hope that you made it through EXPO. I apparently hit it just in time Friday afternoon. I was there - maybe? around 12:00 - 12:30? After the Milk House, it took maybe 3 minutes before I got into EXPO to pick-up my packet. By the time I left EXPO the line was so long.. I couldn't figure out where it ended! I hope that it had quieted down a bit for you guys by the time that you needed in.

Looking forward to the rest of your report. My friends have already registered to run the Goofy challenge next year. I will be on the sidelines cheering. Our plan is to stay at Bay Lake Tower.

The rooms at Bay Lake are nice, but the studios are pretty small. You'll hear about it in the next update
I know, I was shocked too! But even more shocking is that now its gone (in London), but a few days ago it snowed pretty heavy, but a day or two after it was completely gone from the roads and sidewalks, I couldn't believe it.

I lol about the soccer part, typical men eh. What team does he support, I'm an Arsenal fan.

Your room looks great, loving the Disney Art and what an awesome view. Did you get to watch Wishes from there?

A friend of mine who ran the 1/2 just posted her pix on Facebook. Boy, it looked chilly! Maybe you saw her? Your view was awesome! It does look a bit cozy though! Looking forward to more!

I'm so glad you're doing a TR, Jenny! I've been pestering Liz for photos and info.

I thought of you guys the day of the marathon. I'm so proud of you both. Maybe there will be a half marathon in my future if I can ever get my butt in gear.
You'll get plenty of photos and infor here. Maybe more than you wanted to know! Liz is running it again in 2011. I'm sure she would love it if you joined her! If I can do it anyone can

You definitely have plenty of time to get ready for next years half. Liz just started running last February and she did great. Try the Couch to 5K plan (just google it.) That will get you to be able to run 3 miles and if you can run 3 miles you can train for a half. Just watch the sign up for the Half. It usually fills pretty fast. It filled in April last year.

BLT was really nice for the race because of the monorail, but I'm with you in loyalty to the Ecpot resorts. We stayed at Beach Club last summer and loved it and this past fall bought into DVC at the Boardwalk. Our first trip home is Marathon weekend 2011

You can walk right out of your hotel and cheer on your friends. The race goes right by!

DH is a Gunners fan too. Apparently he was a big Dennis Bergkamp fan. (I learned something new about DH today. I'd never heard of Dennis Bergkamp.) He told me they won today 2-0.
The plan was to watch Wishes from the room the first night, but dinner went a bit long so we saw it from somewhere else. You'll have to stick around to find out where.

It was an awesome view. Too bad it was too cold to really enjoy it.

It was freezing! You'll have to look for your friend in the pictures I post. There were over 20,000 runners so chances aren't good that I saw her, but who knows. Stranger things have happened

Very Nice View...

ah well the snow worked out to your benefit...it must have been nice to have the ride and send off to the airport...how long is your flight? It's just about 2 hours from PHLx so it must be even a bit shorter for you...

From couch to 5K hmmm....I'll be checking that out after the boards...

(Does it really snow at DW?)

V cool, your DH has good taste in teams

DF and my dad (not sure what the abbreviation is for dad) saw Dennis Bergkamp's testimonial match, he was a really good player.

Yep, they didn't do too bad, although it was a v scrappy game. I don't watch football (prefer rugby) but this game was brutal. Poor Fabregas, nearly got his head trampled

Ooh wonder where you saw Wishes from, tell us more

The view was something else. I think I prefer it to a straight MK view. The MK view have lots of parking lot, and the lake view is so relaxing. So we got the best of both worlds!

Usually DH has to follow the team on the internet, though I think every once in a while he sees games on the soccer channel. He's always trying to talk me into going over to London to see a game. One of these years he may succeed

Our flight from Baltimore is scheduled at 2 hours 20 minutes. Sometimes it's shorter sometimes it's longer. It all depends on the headwinds I guess This trip the pilot said we were fighting 250 mph headwinds or something like that
There is usually a thread going on the WISH boards for the couch to 5K program. Check it out if you're interested.
And yes, Patricia, it does snow at Disney World.

Oh you must and you must try and score tickets for a game at home (Emirates Stadium) as it is something to be seen I can tell you.
