It's kind of hard to ride with someone when your on vacation by yourself

Today's time is much better than my current time submitted when signing up. I'm glad you're on schedule. My training plan has me at 14 this next week-end and then two 16 milers back to back before I climb again. Are we still bus buddies marathon morning? Are you doing the race retreat tent?

Before I started reading your last post, I saw the lady in the picture and I thought "Wonder who she is? Must be someone in the family that I didn't remember going along with them." I bet she is a hoot to be around!

Glad to see that you guys arrived safe and sound and have already enjoyed the yummy goodness of Disney ice cream.

Congrats on the race! Hopefully it will move you up a few corrals. I didn't submit a time so I'll be in the back. That's OK though because frankly that is where I belong Sounds like your plan is tougher than mine. I'm doing the Hal Higdon beginner and it is plenty for me I'm still planning on riding the bus together from the Boardwalk. I haven't signed up for the race retreat tent but could possibly be talked into it. Did you sign up? If I'm remembering right you did it last year (which ended up being a smart move.)

You gotta love someone that makes even the security line at the airport fun! Would love to hang out with her! We definitely started the trip out right!

Heading out for the night

We headed out for the short walk to the monorail. Itís about a 10 minute walk from Shades of Green to the Polynesian monorail station. On the walk I took the first pictures of everyone in their costumes.









Pretty adorable if you ask me. The original plan was for me to be Tink, but letís face it. Iím not nineteen anymore and I never found a costume that worked so I settled for having Tink on my t-shirt. Everyone else turned out perfect though. We got many compliments all evening and some great character interactions. Donít worry Iíll tell you all about them. Anyway after our short walk we hopped on the monorail where I got a few shots of the Darling Children and Peter Pan.





It was with great excitement that we arrived at the Magic Kingdom stop and hopped off the monorail. We were greeted by this



We walked thru the turnstiles and the first thing I wanted was Photopass pictures (those of you that have read my past trip reports know I have a bit of a Photopass addiction.) Unfortunately the photo pass CD has not yet arrived so Iím going to stop here and you can all wait with me for the arrival of the much anticipated CD.

The costumes are adorable! I've really enjoyed reading your previous trip reports, and am sure this one will be required reading, too!

Cute costumes! MNSSHP is my favorite Disney party. I want to go back in October to do the party again, as well as F&W, but Oct is not a good month for me work-wise.

Race Retreat tent - I want but really, I need to spend that $100.00 on cab fare to IOA for the HP stuff. Harry Potter is more important than warmth before a race – right? I was very happy to have purchased it last year but I figure if I prepare with both hand and feet warmers and throw away garbage bags (and perhaps even a throw away blanket) I should survive without the tent. Right? Right?

What wonderful costumes!

But now, be honest: What did you have to do to get your DH to dress up as Peter Pan?
