So what team are you on?

I didn't even run that race! I just stood next to the fridge so running wasn't necessary!

Sounds like a good story.

All y’all that went to the DDCC are planning on writing some Trip Reports… right?
If you can even remember some of what went on, I for one would like to read about it.

I had a mix of stuff - some Disney music, some heavier stuff (AC/DC, Metallica, etc) and a few inspirational country songs tossed it. Also, Bambi and the kids all recorded short inspirational messages that I randomly stuck into my playlist.

And I'll bet it worked, didn't it? Around mile 20 you started looking around to see who was running next to and behind you. Around 21 you started peaking around bushes and behind overpasses. And around 22, you kicked up the pace a bit, just to be on the safe side.

In the winter I place drinks in the window beside me to chill in the cold. Just open window, and presto! No getting off the couch!

It took me a year to finish my last one so I’ll not be throwing stones.
(but for a while there I was trying to do two at once… bad idea).

You get back to them when you get the chance.
But if you’ve nothing better to do, I’ve started a new one that you can wreak havoc on.

Can’t pull that off down this way…
Might give it a try for reheating coffee this summer though

You get three At’a-Boys for that one and a coupon worth an extra pound of bacon at the next DDC Buffet.

You can do it... If I can, anyone can... (Haven't yet proven I can, but am going to give it my best effort).

Not just for the race, the ribbing, the taunting, the experience.... But really for your overall health and well being. You want to be around to walk those princesses down the aisle. Run with us Scott... I'll give you a 2 minute handicap.

Negative ghostrider.

I've already made changes (away from WDW) for my overall health and well being. I don't need to run to be healthier.

If winning that one is the qualifier to run the half next year, I don't think this is one that I want to win.

So.... you'll be writing it about the time of the next DDCC.

I've used that trick once or twice myself.

Just be careful. If someone just randomly starts guessing, there are some speed limit signs with some big numbers on them.
