How exciting - I hope you enjoy the 5k and decide to sign up for another race The feeling upon crossing the finish line is very addictive which is one of the reasons I keep running. Please come back and share your experience with us!

Yay - more new runners! Enjoy the race - take in the joyous atmosphere, the wonderful spectator support, and the magic of crossing the finish line. Then go sign up for the next one

This meet and greet is a group of Disney fans from the Mickey Moms Club Super Group and Social Media that will be in WDW for a Disney Divas Girls Weekend - this is not a panel meet and greet. It is just Disney fans that interact regularly meeting up since we will all be there at the same time.

Almost Missed It!

I got my entry submitted in the nick of time. I was traveling on business and returned home on Friday 9/14, only to see that the deadline was 11:59pm. I quickly sat down and typed my responses. This year, I had no time to over-think my answers and just typed from the heart, so fingers crossed that this year may be the year. Wishing everyone good luck and pixie dust!

You know what that means, right? First, we'll want a race report. And second - it will automatically be a PR* for you!


* PR = personal record, or best time.

Someone may have already mentioned this- but the Solarium will not be available for use on that date. It's been temporarily transformed into the fitness center until December. Maybe you can use Martha's Vineyard, a lounge area just around the corner through the lobby....

Evening everyone I just wanted to say its so nice to sit here in the evening and read what went on during the day. I am having a tough time lately (isn't everyone) but this place is my refuge. I am desperately looking for a new job but grateful I have one but it's too much for too little pay no retirement nothing and trying to feed three kids myself help my boyfriend and his two boysis draining me. So thanks for being a place I can come breathe a sigh of relief and relax.

Sorry for the ot rant.

Hugs for you! And it is so nice to know that Disney is something that no matter what you're going through can always be there to make you smile. Even if it's not planning a trip of your own, sometimes just Disney chatter with some fun Disney lovin' folks can make you forget your troubles for awhile. I know it does for me!

No need to apologize! We all bear the weight of our own burdens, but sharing our love of Disney seems to lighten them a bit-- even if it's just for a while. I was having a particularly frustrating day at work today and walked outside at lunch. I crossed a path near a fountain, and I immediately stopped because the faint smell of chlorine and the sound of the water transported me to the fountains at Epcot. I couldn't help but smile and somehow the load wasn't quite so heavy for the rest of the day! Disney is so much more than a theme park!

Its true Disney is definitely more than a place for me its like a refuge. Somewhere I can go and not worry about anything whether I'm planning a trip for myself or someone else or just talking about it. I'm glad I joined this group this year i usually just wait alone for the results but this is so much better

Just a quick note -- if you were one of the last few to add yourself to the spreadsheet, you may want to go double-check that you're still there. I went and added myself a few minutes ago and it seemed someone else was editing at the same time -- I stopped to wait so as not to mess up the database writing and as I watched a few of the lines went MIA! Not sure if it was a fluke or what, but there are definitely three or four names that disappeared off of the list, so if you added yourself recently, make sure it wasn't you!

And on another note, I am so glad to see some other runDisney folk here. I did not apply for that speciality, as I am not a runner, but with the help of Jeff Galloway and God (not in that order, lol) I am going to finish the half marathon in January if it kills me! LOL!!!!

I'm following Jeff Galloway too. I think he's a genius!
