Trip update: changed from Dec to Sept 6 - 9 @ The Beach Club.
Hoping the day after Labor Day is going to be slow and have great weather. Last Dec was horrible. It will be odd to experience Disney without the Christmas decorations.

Thanks for posting and updating the calendar.

Booked today for Sept 25-Oct 4. We'll likely add a day or two on one end or the other, but, we can't book airfare until the baby has a birthdate...seems ridiculous to me, but, what can we do.

We'll be staying at OKW...in a 2bdrm with only 3 adults and an infant...should be a luxurious amount of space. We were going to get a 1bdrm since the full kitchen will be useful since I can't eat at most QS places. Then, we figured we would invite my MIL since she could sleep in the living room. Her response was that she DEFINITELY wanted to come, but, that she'd pay for the upgrade to have her own bedroom. So, 2bdrm, here we come!

I've registered for the Disneyland Half Marathon, so I'll be out there 9/1-9/6, not sure where quite yet.

Also registered for the WDW Wine and Dine Half Marathon, so I'll be going back 9/29-10/6.

Then sailing on the Dream from 10/6-10/9.

I'm going on march 21st - 25th. Staying at the Swan because my partner is attending a business conference there. As a result of this, there will be a couple days where I will be by myself and even a few evening where I will have to be dining alone. I'd really appreciate if someone who is going on these dates would be kind enough to meet me on one or two of these occasions so I don't have to be by myself or eat dinner at a restaurant alone like a loser. lol

Oooo...I was looking at that. The main question seems to be whether I can go from bedrest to a half marathon in 6 months while taking care of a little one.

The longest race I've ever done was a half and I did train for it in about 4 months, but, I was already running 10K relatively comfortably at that point whereas now a flight of stairs can do me in. The pace requirement is fairly slow though, so, I could just plan something like run 5 min, walk 5 min which should be sustainable even if I'm not up to the distance yet.

Any advice on how to decide?

Hi
This is my second trip to the F & G, I do love the topiaries. My favorite time is during the F & W. We're hoping to book a bounce back for the F & G while we're on the May trip I'm sure you'll get there one day. I'll post pics once we get back.
take care,
Dee

Many people walk the entire event so if you plan on running any of it you should not have a problem with the 16 min per mile pace requirement. The official 16 min sweep pace begins after the last person crosses the start line so you have an even slower pace requirement if you aren't the last person to start.

See, that's what I was thinking. Plus, I figure having a goal might be good for me in helping me make a point of carving out time for myself in the next few months.

A friend suggested that I'd really need a treadmill at home, but, I've never been able to run on a treadmill. I can run on ellipticals, and do at the gym, but, they are fairly expensive to have at home.

I know that some people would run with a stroller, but, it's not really good for the baby's brainstem in the first 6 months. But, if I could get at least one run/week outdoors and find a way to run on an elliptical, I think that I ought to be able to get up to the pace requirement and distance endurance. Right?

I should also add that I MUCH prefer running at night to running the the morning, so that aspect of this race is extra enticing for me.

Another question for those doing the Wine and Dine Half Marathon:

The main page suggests that there is a discount available for park tickets that are only usable Sept. 23 to Oct. 8th. The limited dates make me think that it might actually be a true discount.

Do you know what they are offering? (If it's worthwhile it might help me make my case for running.)

2.) In the fall we're going to DisneyWORLD 9/1-9/3, then Cruising on the Dream 9/4-9/8, then back at WDW 9/8-9/11. Right now all our WDW stays are booked at Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas (one of our home resorts), but once our 7 month window opens up we will probably try to switch either or both of our "bookend WDW stays"----hoping to get into Bay Lake Tower and/or Wilderness Lodge (because we've never stayed in either before).
Hi guys! We'll be on the Dream at the same time! Would love to meet up and be seated for dinner with another couple (although I'm not sure how to do that??). Look forward to meeting you both!
