I'm in - this will be my first marathon. So excited - and scared at the same time.

I just pulled the trigger for the Marathon as well.

My dh and I will be running it again. We ran this year and were thinking of running a different marathon in February, but ran into a scheduling conflict. So, it's back to Disney we go. I think my SIL and BIL are going to go as well. It will be their first marathon although they've run several halfs.

Thank you! That's even better so I don't have to take time out of the race! I don't want to get swept!

My first full marathon is tomorrow!! I'm nervous, but I've done all my training, so I know I should be able to at least crawl across the finish line.

Anyone else doing the Seattle Rock n Roll full or half tomorrow?

I booked our airfare this morning. Flying out on Allegiant and back on Southwest. We also booked a 2 bdr condo in Windsor Hills. Still need to book a rental car, but we'll wait until closer to the dates to do that. It's feeling really REAL now.

Heh.. I just booked my air tix too! SW both ways.. Changed our end date to the 18th since the tix were about 40 each cheaper on saturday then friday! DVC so all it costs was points, which we have used most of so no biggie lol.. 'saved' $80 and added a day at disney.. so I'm sure that savings will disappear lol..

Yeah, we had talked about staying a whole week so we could book Allegiant both ways and save $100 on airfare. But, that would have meant more lodging, food and park expense, so I'm sure we would have spent a lot more to "save" that $100.

We're in! We actually registered a while back but I have been pretty absent from DIS the past few months. My sister and I are running the full and our parents are doing the half. Even my son is getting in on the action with the Mickey Mile! I am currently terrified as i am having difficulties with training but I hope to be able to use the Jeff Galloway's plan to get on track!!

Well to my surprise I looked on Delta and found sky miles I had forgotten about - so booked my flight today for free! Almost better than finding money in the washer!
