Good to know that people wear costumes! I liked your write-up, by the way.

Sure do hope so, as my son will be there. Of course, we'll still be on Pacific time so it's not like it will FEEL that late to us.

So good to know.

I called today and got POR standard room from the 4th to the 9th for $760. Which was quite a bit lower than the current rate online. I'll still be checking for AP room-only rates later on, but for now I'm pretty darned happy with that rate!

I think I read later that you got the ticket, but in case anyone else is having the same problem...I had to put the dates exactly as the run/party date. Highly annoying to have to figure out what the programmers wanted.

Hey V! You are tooo much😀. I can't handle riding TOT and RNR, must be an age and equilibrium thing. Only a 5K on 4/20 and nothing until DL 1/2. Here we go.

Thank you so much bumbershoot...glad you liked the blog post.
Consider liking my page on FB and then you can keep up with the rest of my posts. Since I just signed up for my first full Marathon (Disney Marathon, of course) I expect I will be blogging Run Disney a lot.

So "we" are officially signed up - that is hubby for the run, me for the party

Very excited for our first Disney running experience, my training will involve how to stay up until 4am at WDW, I'm normally pooped by 9pm!!

1 Inch down means 1 inch down from the seam of the underarm as per Champion guidelines.

Thanks! That gives a good idea of where AP rates may be headed.

I'm fine with up and down, even upside down, but spinning is no good, thanks to a couple concussions in high school soccer. We skipped TSM last year, but I may try it this time, depending on how I feel... I felt fine last year, but I also walked most of the race, lol!

We still had people arriving yet to run or even park when we left...and we were in about the 5th or 6th wave.

Be sure to bring a change of shirts and a towel to sit on or a change of pants/shorts for the ride home. Otherwise you might never get the stuff out of your car! Also we brought a pack of baby wipes. This got pretty much all of the loose powder off of us. We still had some on our hands from where we released our packs of powder but that came off in the shower later.

Another tip...a bandana. I used mine on my hair. Others used theirs outlaw style to cover their nose and mouth. Let's just say it was disconcerting to blow my nose later and have it come out teal.

But it was a fun event.
oh yes! i wore a white hat and tucked my hair up into the hat. i also changed my shirt and pulled some knit capris over my shorts before driving home.

and i was blowing out colors later that day too! ha!

back to the BASH: i know i've read that some of the food carts are open. are most of them open? any restaurants? i have this weird habit of always drinking a lowfat chocolate milk after i run. i'd love to be able to get one.

I saw plenty of carts - mostly beer and mixed drinks, but I'm sure some were ice cream and soft drinks/Powerade/water/etc.. Backlot Express was open, as were the CS stands across from TOT/RnR and I think ABC Commissary.

Ummm...

The men's Boston Marathon winner just finished in 2:10:23. I'll be happy to finish the TOT in about that.

LOL it's not weird! Chocolate milk, low fat or otherwise is a perfect recovery drink - I know body builders that do it and I love it
