Hi Marsha! I live by Dulles Airport, too!
I like all of these ideas!

When we meet up, you'll have to tell me all about the races! DH knew I was bummed about the panel, so he said, "Let's go run a 5K during Marathon Weekend." I could probably swing a 5k by then, but ultimately I'd like to do a half marathon sometime.
Totally Off/Topic but did everyone realize the Disney Outlet at Potomac Mills Mall sells Disneyland Park merchandise. The merchandise is either surplus, discontinued, off-season, etc... but they have some great deals at some good prices. The store told me they are one of 11 stores nationwide that gets Disneyland merchandise. They get shipments in monthly except for either July...or was it August...during the first part of the month.
Something to think about for holiday shopping - just sayin
You have a great attitude! That's awesome that you made it to R2 on your first try!
I am so excited to start participating in half-marathons! Particularly because it gives me something else to plan my Disney trips around. I would love to chat with someone who's experienced 3 halfs. I think I'm probably a wogger as well. I'm doing Jeff Galloway's run-walk program, and am only currently at a 20 sec running to 1 minute walking ratio at the moment, but am doing 45 - 60 minutes per day. I've only been at it for a couple of weeks though.
Hi Marsha. Glad you joined us over here. I like all your proposed ideas. I haven't been to ICE! yet and have been meaning to since it came to Gaylord. Really any of the ideas would work for me. I think one of the mom hopefuls had mentioned a winery which could be nice too.
As soon as I read this post I was thinking..what a good idea. I could handle a 5K in Feb. Then I realized we don't actually arrive until Saturday late morning. I might have to think about changing our arrival date...
Glad you posted this as I didn't even know there was a Disney outlet at Potomac Mills. I may have to check it out tomorrow since I'll be at the IKEA looking for a larger bed for my son...Who is now officially the tallest person in the house
Oh, I haven't been to Potomac Mills in so long -- maybe I need to get out there this holiday season!
I was at the July 4th Leesburg parade when this young woman came up to me and said hello! I didn't know her at all but she said she read my TR and recognized us from the pictures. What a great thing! She is off at college now but still checks in on DIS.
I always wonder who else from this area might be on DIS?
We went to ICE! 2 years ago and it was a lot of fun. It is expensive when you add up the admission, parking, food/drinks, etc. It's also VERY cold in there and once you leave you can't go back in. But sliding down the ice slides with my girls was a LOT of fun! The ice sculptures are truly unbelievable, particularly the Nativity Scene at the end, if they still do that.
I definitely recommend doing it once -- you have to pre-purchase your tickets on-line if you are going on a weekend though...they sell out quickly.
Hi there everyone! I'm up in Rochester, NY but would not rule out a road trip! Can someone send me a zip code so I can get an approx. idea how far away you are? Also.. fyi.. got a twitter message from marcmantoo... there is going to be a meetup here in Rochester with Mark (from the mom's panel) to go see the muppet movie on nov. 26th... if anyone wants to head this way.. we're not far from Niagara Falls...and we've got a GREAT children's museum too.. the Strong National Museum of Play!
We'd love to have you! I'm not sure of NoVa zip codes, but if you do a search to Washington DC, it should be fairly similar.
Also, what is your twitter name, I don't think I'm following you yet!
How cool is that? You'd do a road trip!!
The zip code for the Gaylord National is 20745
Tysons Corner Mall is 22102
Hi there! Its my4kidslvdisney (no u in luv!)
Keep me posted everyone!
Yay! Road trip We were thinking about taking our girls to Niagara Falls next summer. I'll have to come say hi!
So what happened to all the other Virginians/Marylanders on the thread I thought there were more of us!
Do it my4kidsluvdisney! The more the merrier. I mean you were going to be traveling that weekend anyway right?
I just reposted a link to this thread on the Adventures of...thread. Hopefully they'll find their way over.
btw my twitter name is @thewildmouse if anyone's interested. I would love to follow you all if you post your twitter handles.
Definitely let me know if you're in the area... you will have to include a stop for the Strong National Museum of Play.. its amazing! Your girls would love it.. its been recommended before in Family Fun Magazine too.. Its right here in downtown Rochester.
Hi all -- I am late joining the thread, but I'd love to join a meetup on December 10th. I'm pretty close to Dulles Airport too.
(And Denise -- speaking of small worlds -- I think we have a mutual friend!)
All the ideas posed sound fabulous so far. I'm happy to help coordinate, etc.
I am very very excited to learn that Nancy and I work in the SAME building for the SAME agency. What a small world! Now I feel like a have a partner in crime to help each other with the 2013 application
