I'm curious along with everyone else about the car. I'm wondering if we will find out what happens if someone leaves their car in the MK lot overnight.
TSI can be quite warm. I do like wandering around and if you can find a relatively quiet spot it can be really peaceful adn allow you to recharge a bit.

Ah yes the car. I will get there hopefully sooner than later.

So, are you going to answer the question that's been rolling around in my head since June - and that is "Can you leave your car overnight in the MK parking lot and not have it towed? "

That's part of the horrible. I think I was bouncing back and forth in TL that I just snapped one when I moved on.

Not sure if I can Actually answer that question or not about the car.

Marty Skylar perhaps?

The Ikea frame one had me laughing out loud!!
I would think Marty Skylar is correct.

I thought the IKEA frame was funny too.

Left the car there but did I make it back?

Thanks Everyone!! I know now that I CAN do a 5K easy and would enjoy it more in the future. But I actually finished a 1/2 marathon and a few short years ago if you told me I would I would have thought you were nuts.


I will not rule out another 1/2 in the future ( its kind of like childbirth, you forget the bad after a while ) but the training time and the time it involves may be way more than I am willing to give on a regular basis while in Disney.

Not that I minded and it did not ruin the time in the parks by any means but again this was a much different trip.

Pat, I knew you had this TR going and always intended to find a day to catch up and then post and thereby subscribe. I still haven't gotten around to it. So I decided to just post so that it comes up in my subscribed threads and then I can try to catch up little by little over time...

And from the last page I seem to have learned that you ran the half marathon! Congratulations on that acchievement!!! I have never gotten further than a 10k and when in training for a longer distance I always seem to lose track when I get up to about 15km and then I start getting issues.

Darn Disney Trips.


For anyone who did not where I disappeared to again, I did the 1/2 marathon last Saturday at o'dark thirty.


I DID IT !!!! Well that WAS my goal. It was really warm and as soon as the sun came up ( and in my eyes) I really felt it.

My official time was 3:14:44 - I am glad I did it but may not rush out and do another one anytime soon.

5ks are so much more conducive to a Disney Trip. Up early - do it and still make rope drop.

I hope to finish this TR up soon, only the last half of the last full day left.

Thanks for sticking with me.
Congratulations Pat! That's a great accomplishment.

Congrats on completing the 1/2 marathon!

When you start showing up more in others' trip reports than in your own, it is time to get back to it and

LET US KNOW WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE CAR!!!

Glad you joined in and at the rate I am going you have time to catch up.

Thanks on the congrats. I will say it was rough. It was rather warm and I just don't do well with warm. But I did cross the finish linee and well with in pace so I am happy for that.

I think for a while 5k and maybe 10k are perfect for me. Enough time that I can dedicate to training and then doing it and not feeling like I use several days to get ready, run and then recover.

okay okay- I am still catching up but really I have to actually write. For the most part I can write a bunch and then chunk it up to post but I have not had time to write.

Had a 1/2 day snow day today - the ice really made things a mess but it should be gone by tomorrow. I do have to start a recreation kswim meet tomorrow afternoon and then Sunday AM I need to open my facility so new lockers can be installed.
It was my hope that while I am babysitting the facility Sunday Am I can write a bit but I actually have some work to do as well that was not able to be done today.

Thanks for sticking with me and I hope to tell the tale of the car soon.
