Thanks Mamacrush.

Unfortunately the only relative we have is my daughter but she has college finals that week and can't get down there with us.

If you come up with any ideas, just post them

Still debating on registering, if we do, my fiancee and me would be team "Maid in France". We would both be wearing french maid costumes.

Scavenger Hunt

For those of you that have done this race in the past...

MUST you complete the scavenger hunt after you do the 5k or can you just do the 5k? My DS9 is a first timer and it will be late....not sure if he'll make it through both things. Plus my DD7 will be waiting with my DH.

So super excited!!! My husband and four of our friends are thinking about doing this. I have never done a 5k before... and am so out of shape! Ugh!!! I'm hoping we can get our plans, money, and bodies in shape soon! I AM SO EXCITED!!! It's a long way to travel for a 5k, I know... I live in Maine! We are heading to a wedding in VA, so we thought it wasn't "that" much further! ha ha!

I think u have to do both to get them medal. I know last year...until u got that last clue other wouldn't let u finish....however the staff is VERY helpful with the clues and answers. The 5K felt longer than the scavenger part.

That was my experience also. And the medal is SO worth it! Adrenaline may carry her through!

I think that's awesome!! A trip to Disney is always fun, but when combining it with something like this, it's extra special!

Yep, you ave to turn in the correct final answer to cross the finish. But if you ask nicely for help and look desperate, the CMs will just tell you the answers. Trust me.

Scavenger Hunt Answer

Thanks everyone! My son is insisting he's up for it so I think we'll be ok. Plus, like some said, I think the adrenaline will carry both of us through! :-)

I can't wait to go!!!
