It was warm... umm... I mean WARM. I haven't run in temperatures like that in about 3 months and it felt okay, but boy was I sweating. I REALLY started hydrating today as we were out at Animal Kingdom.

Today was 3.75 running and about 3.5 walking around AK. We're going to dinner at the Biergarten in Germany, so that will add some walking distance as well.

I may bag my runs the rest of the week in favor of the walking at the parks before race day.

Overall, the weather this week is great for a winter getaway from Philadelphia, but I do wish it was cooler for race day.

As it is, I'm just taking it as more incentive to slow down and enjoy the atmosphere of the race rather than try to run for time.

Four days!
Thanks for letting us know how it's feeling down there! You're lucky you get to acclimate to it before the weekend.

I phoned yesterday to see if it would be appropriate to have an additional conversation since I am in the area this week. He indicated that he was going to phone later in the week as ask if I could come over… great minds think alike. I offered up Friday and Monday as better days. He has a full day meeting Friday but said that was his preferred day. I asked if he was sure… on Monday, he could laugh at me in my post marathon condition. We meet during lunch on Friday.

Thanks for all the well wishes! We will let all know
great timing! and good luck to you!

I had to reload any ADR made prior to the computer change in early Dec.

We spent the day at mk today and as the sun was beating down on us at around 1130 or 12, I thought, so this is what it's going to be like at the end of the marathon on sunday. Oh boy.
Just keep calm and keep moving forward!

Eta: OMG IM SO EXCITED!

How did you do that Coach? Through the app or on the web site? I already have my ADRs on my google calander so I can get to those easy enough. My hotel ressies never come up since we book through DVC member services.

It's incredibly wonky right now. It kept telling me the ADRs I was adding weren't valid one minute and gave me full details about them in the next minute. It'll be great if they get it all working at once.

Even the DVC reservations can be added to the system, but none of mine showed up automatically. Once I added the confirmation number and other required information, those ressies showed up too. Sometimes.

I just downloaded the app and it won't pull up my confirmation number with my phone numbers. Says there's nothing listed. Ugh!!!

On the web site I was able to add all my hotel and dining ressies. But can't find where they would be in the app. I guess they are still working on the gliches.
