    Welcome back, all you folks who were in the World recently.

    It would have been awesome if you'd waited a bit, and then posted this again. :rotfl2:

    Have a great time Stopher!

    Glad to see you back, Randy! I'm thrilled you found a new job. Hope it stays positive. :thumbsup2

    :cool1::woohoo:

    Dude, don't even say that!

    Have a great time, my friend!

    Excellent! :thumbsup2

    I'm in Chicago for a quick conference. Sweet view from my conference room yesterday (80th floor in downtown Chicago!). If you have to spend 12 hours in a conference room, at least the view was nice! But my co-chair speaks pretty much only french, making our presentation challenging! I seriously considered switching to Latin...

    I have a break in the meeting today, so headed out to catch the Cubs and Astros stink up Wrigley Field this afternoon. Then unfortunately have evening meetings. Already told the chair of my 5-8pm meeting, that I might come back having had a couple of beers. His response: alcohol should be served at this meeting. Would make it more tolerable (best chair ever).

    Also, from Facebook, many saw that I finished my 2nd weekend of Wood Badge this weekend. I couldn't recommend this more highly. Best leadership development I have ever done. A real life-changing experience for me inspiring me to be a better leader/teacher, husband, father, and man. For those of you in scouting, take the opportunity to give yourselves the gift of doing this. You won't regret it.

    Take care guys! Have a magical day!

    The other review of the race said the exact opposite lol, said at times the course was boring but the after party wasn't crowded and fun, I still wanna do one, and prob will do this one next year

    Did they keep you up past your bedtime or something? :confused3 :lmao:

    :lmao::rotfl2::rotfl:

    :lmao::rotfl2::rotfl:

    In all seriousness... I hope you don't die Steve. :thumbsup2

    Just make up your own language. That would make it more interesting.

    Or better yet, slip in a Peanut Butter or Beverly a few times. :lmao::rotfl::rotfl2:

    You're going to need the beer just to get through an insignifcant game between some NL Central cellar dwellers.:rolleyes1

    Congratulations! :thumbsup2

    :lmao:

    A day at a baseball game is still better than any work day.

    :scared1:

    Have a great cruise.

    Management, i.e., people who have nothing to do.

    Claimed? :crazy2:

    Mine do it every year. I try to tell them not too, but I guess it is too much to resist.

    :lmao:

    Congrats on race and Dole Whip. Maybe one year I'll be able to run it.

    That's more like it. There should be a law against work interferring with DIS Time.

    Wow that's the easiest way ever to prevent yourself from dying

    I think some of that may be tied to when you finish. When DS and I finished the EE challenge we were towards the front of the pack. We were able to ride EE 5 times in a row with essentially no line. After that the crowds seemed to come out of nowhere and the lines grew pretty rapidly. The bag check line was especially horrendous. After EE the park was crazy because parts of the park were sectioned off for the race. That plus the darkness made it really difficult to get anywhere and added to the confusion. Did the same thing happen after ToT?

    A not great Disney race is still better than most any other racing experience.

    Which is way better than 8 hours in a cubicle.

    This week I've been checking the my Disney experience app to get a rough idea of wait times next week, I assume this might be a glitch but IASW says a 70min wait, a friend used the app 2 weeks ago an said its very accurate but why on earth is there that big of a wait for IASW? Lol I don't know many people who would ever wait that long

    Rumor has it they drained the water on the ride and refilled it with beer. The person loading the boats hands you a straw as you board.

    But still, to get to 70 minutes, surely the beer overflowed and shorted out the sound system too. :rotfl2::rotfl::lmao:

    A 70 minute wait on IASW wouldn't just be a Brazillian tour group. It would be the entire population. :rotfl2::rotfl:

    Stopher, glad you popped in. Enjoy the cruise.

    That is good news Randy. Congrats.

    Congrats on the race. Glad it was only a quick trip to the medical tent.

    Listened to the Dis Unplugged podcast today. Eric gave a shout out to our little forum and mentioned your meet up.

    You might also want to listen to the above mention podcast. One segment they had 4 of the runners (including Eric and his wife) talk about their experiences.

    Still wouldn't go on it.

    It was a good race minus the weather. After running Tink in January we were expecting more Disney cast members and more of the behind the sense stuff we saw in Disneyland. A lot of the route was on the freeway between Animal kingdom and WWoS. But we had fun and the after party was decent. We would probably do it again. Metal was worth it.

    That's ok I was late getting a Pm out. Glad you got a meet in, maybe next time.
    I agree with the race report DHS was a mass of people and not much direction. We did the great movie ride and left. The only character I was hoping to see an get a picture with was Stitch and as we came up he went to change out, so no picture :(.
