Oh- and everyone watch Julie's video. It ROCKS. It was well timed to get people pumped about shelling out $$$ for the race Julie!

Thanks for the info, that would be wicked bad *** if ALL resports had transpo! I will keep my fingers crossed!

Geez, my friend emails me 4 hours ago just dropping the suggestion and now I'm all ramped up for it! I hope we can make this work...it would be awesome on so many levels.

He isn't much support in that department. He likes the idea of me trying to better myself. (he was the same way when I told him I wanted to do a 5K)

When I first started running in February I wasn't able to run for 30 seconds without feeling like I was going to die! In my second ever 5K a couple of weeks ago I averaged a 13.5 minute mile. I was very proud of myself. And it was HOT!!

So I guess I'm just rambeling... With or without his support I AM DOING THIS!!

You are doing great and I am sure he will start being more supportive. My DH is not a runner so he had a hard time even figuring out why I want to do this. He is getting a lot better though!

So, I apologize if this has been asked, but does anyone know the list of sponsor resorts? We camped at Fort Wilderness the last time for a family vacation and I just drove myself over. We have an opportunity to use a friend's DVC points for 2013, but that would mean renting a car I believe...unless one of the DVC properties is a sponsor resort.

The ESPNWOS web site link to resort info just brings me to the home page.

TIA!
Also, last year, AKL, BC, BW and SSR were all host resorts/DVD properties so even if our information when we called wasn't right you should be able to find a DVC host resort or you can always take a cab that morning!

Cabs are running at 3:00 - 4:00 am there? Wow -- up here that's definitely not the norm *(at least there wouldn't be nearly enough cabs to accommodate a ton of people like the PHM have!)

I loved other people's videos so I said I was going to do one....better late than never. I stopped SO much and believe it or not, I was faster this year than last...though I was injured last year and just happy to be limping along to the finish. Amy is alot faster than me and decided it would be more fun to do the race together....she was right...though we seriously loved the race the first year we both went at our own pace.

I think that Bell Services could call one for you if you were at a non host resort. It isn't like everyone would be needing one!

That WAS a great video! Thank you for posting this....like mahipp, I will probably be watching it every day too, until the actual race.

The songs are from the Fresh Beat Band...a preschool show on Nick LOL...

"Here We Go", "Another Perfect Day", "Surprise Yourself" and "Waiting on Friend Like You".....

My little princess was and still is SO into that show and loves the songs. We have the CD so I figured why not use them! Catchy aren't they!

Oh and at the end in the outtakes....its from Move It Shake It Celebrate it Street party.... which IS Disney. Just downloaded it from somewhere.
