Hubby is down now, I'll get in tonight about 10 & he's saying its warm. From a northerner, he said it was ok - to him - until the sun came up & since then his big thing is the humidity. Michiganders are fairly used to humidity being surrounded by the lakes so its just something to get used to again.

Daughter is home sick from school for second day in row, but from the way she is bouncing around the house, she feels fine!

Started packing and we are heading out tomorrow after noon (only couple hour drive for us).

We are both giggling at the amount of stuff I am laying out for the race. Daughter asked if I was packing for someone else as there was two pairs of: running shoes, compression socks, running shirt, fuel belts, and even running watch. I told her I needed back ups of everything "just in case". But, I was at a loss for an answer when she asked why I was packing it all in one bag. "If you lose that bag, you lose the back ups too."

Kids...they humble you.

It's pretty humid. My 6am run this morning was 68 and 94% humidity. Charles is not allowed to stay at OKW ever again.

I'm here! No run here yet but it's humid alright! Impervious because I didn't train quite enough, not like last time. Oh we'll! My kids were kept in the dark that they were coming too, and it's all worth it!

For some reason that reminded me to add Gatorade to the shopping list. Reminder...no Gatorade on property.

Two miles is morning... 68 degrees and 99% humidity.... It it warm this afternoon but the humidity has leveled off for now. Right now it is 81 and 47% humidity so it actually feels pretty pleasant.

The forecast is now for a high of 83 both of the next two days... Listed on The Weather Channel app as near record highs.

My legs felt good this morning... It really amazes me how the walking and running muscles are so different.

I ended up getting a new spibelt this morning at the expo... Might need to run tomorrow to try it out and decide if I'll use it for the half.

Coach, where/when will the Chuckster 5k start tomorrow? I may want to run after all.

Walking from the hotel to Hollywood studios and saw Desiree Davilla out doing laps. US marathon Olympian. Cool.

Just got done with expo. Don't like where buses are dropping off, they seem to be much further than any other time I have been here.
Packet pick-up went smoothly.
Signed up for Dumbo Double Dare and ran into Lisa there. It was great to meet a fellow WISHer<3. Did a little shopping and am now headed to MK for dinner at BoG. Yay.

Enjoy BoG! We were there for Thanksgiving dinner, which also happened to be the day of our 15th wedding anniversary. Extra, super, unbelievably magical! Especially the gray stuff!

Just checked into OKW. Planning on hitting the expo in the morning while my wife sleeps in. Also woke up this morning with a cold. I am praying it is only a cold and not the flu. It just feels like a regular cold so far.
