Hey past & future HoJo'ers,

What are you doing for food on race morning? I always do peanut butter toast, but don't know if there is a toaster around.

I'm so sorry for everyone's troubles! . Not a good way to head off to the happiest place on earth! Hope everyone can heal physically and emotionally in time for the race. I'm buying some zinc lozenges today and started the kids on acidophilus yesterday!

You are allowed to move back to another corral, but you aren't supposed to move yourself up.

The rooms dont have toasters.
I've cant do PB before runs but I have done just jelly on bread before, not taosated. Boring, I know. I've been having cereal with a little bit of milk before my long runs lately and its working well for me so I'm going to stick to that.

Make sure you hydrate really well throughout the next 3 days. A big one if you're flying. Your pee should be really light/pale colored. Carb up today and tomorrow, your big carbo load should be tomorrow. You don't want to do it Saturday night b/c it'll be sticking in your stomach which won't be fun for running and 2~ it doesn't give your body enough time to absorb everything. Saturday dinner should be a protein and light carb if you want. My usual down there is a grilled chicken breast and small baked potato from ESPN. As for Sunday... celebration drinks and fun stuff to eat. Discovered the Louisiana Lemonade at Brennan's in DTD, they are so yummy and so is the Jolly Rancher shot at the Uva bar. Rita's has really good grand margarita's in DCA also. I promise I'm not an alcoholic although right now I sound like it!

As much as I can't wait for this weekend, I realized that I get to sleep in next weekend!! Both days if I want!!! So excited.

Thanks Kim! That gives me a great excuse to hit Naples for lunch tomorrow.

I was just looking over the Park Hours, etc. and noticed something. Will they not be showing Fantasmic! this weekend? I've never seen it and it was on my must do list.

P.S. - Kim, you're going to try the Goofy Challenge again next year? You'll kill it next time!

I believe Fantasmic is down for a refurb right now. I seem to remember hearing that they were going to do that in January?

Thanks!! Not sure about next year yet. I use my tax return to do 1 big race a year, and I'm waiting to hear about the NYC Marathon. I'm supposed to be guaranteed this year, but after the cancellation last year, not sure what's happening this year yet. If I get into NY, then no, but if I don't, 90% sure I'll do WDW next year. But definitely saving up for '15 ~ it'll be the 10th anniversary for Goofy, so that should be fun.

For the hydration you should drink half your body weight in ounces each of the next three days. If you weigh 140 you should drink 70 ounces of water each day. Also you can add an elctrolyte drink on Saturday to balance out your electrolytes before the race.

So we're checked into the Disneyland Hotel. Were in the Frontier Tower. I havent seen the room yet but my parents like it which is a really good sign in my books.

I was at the racetrack so I missed a bit of fun when Goofy came up to my parents who explained what I was here for. Ah well. I don't regret going to the track. I got to be on tv! And see one of my favorite racehorses win her second race!

This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. I -- I hardly know, sir, just at present -- at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.

The info is posted for NY and you need to pick an option by Jan 25.
