These bosses really need to start being more sensitive to the important things in life.

What's your overall opinion of the race? The good and bad? Thinking of running it next year

I'll give my 2 cents; The run itself was great (though hot). Well organized, plenty of water/powerade stops, and things along the way to keep your mind off the run(characters etc.). The post-party was a mess though. I don't think ending it inside a park is a good idea. DHS was way overcrowded and confusing to get to bag check, etc. We were really looking forward to the party, and ended up riding Star Tours once and heading out because it was a so crazy. Also, it's pretty late when you finish, so I may have just been a bit cranky...

It would have been awesome if you'd waited a bit, and then posted this again.

Glad to see you back, Randy! I'm thrilled you found a new job. Hope it stays positive.

Excellent!

I'm in Chicago for a quick conference. Sweet view from my conference room yesterday (80th floor in downtown Chicago!). If you have to spend 12 hours in a conference room, at least the view was nice! But my co-chair speaks pretty much only french, making our presentation challenging! I seriously considered switching to Latin...

I have a break in the meeting today, so headed out to catch the Cubs and Astros stink up Wrigley Field this afternoon. Then unfortunately have evening meetings. Already told the chair of my 5-8pm meeting, that I might come back having had a couple of beers. His response: alcohol should be served at this meeting. Would make it more tolerable (best chair ever).

Also, from Facebook, many saw that I finished my 2nd weekend of Wood Badge this weekend. I couldn't recommend this more highly. Best leadership development I have ever done. A real life-changing experience for me inspiring me to be a better leader/teacher, husband, father, and man. For those of you in scouting, take the opportunity to give yourselves the gift of doing this. You won't regret it.

Take care guys! Have a magical day!

Just make up your own language. That would make it more interesting.

Or better yet, slip in a Peanut Butter or Beverly a few times.

You're going to need the beer just to get through an insignifcant game between some NL Central cellar dwellers.

A day at a baseball game is still better than any work day.

I think some of that may be tied to when you finish. When DS and I finished the EE challenge we were towards the front of the pack. We were able to ride EE 5 times in a row with essentially no line. After that the crowds seemed to come out of nowhere and the lines grew pretty rapidly. The bag check line was especially horrendous. After EE the park was crazy because parts of the park were sectioned off for the race. That plus the darkness made it really difficult to get anywhere and added to the confusion. Did the same thing happen after ToT?

A not great Disney race is still better than most any other racing experience.

This week I've been checking the my Disney experience app to get a rough idea of wait times next week, I assume this might be a glitch but IASW says a 70min wait, a friend used the app 2 weeks ago an said its very accurate but why on earth is there that big of a wait for IASW? Lol I don't know many people who would ever wait that long
