    He wants to ride RnRC again, but doesn't want to ride ToT! :confused3 He'll be doing that one solo unless my husband wants to go with him.

    We'll be heading to the Clearwater Aquarium to see Winter the dolphin (from the movie Dolphin Tale) on the 16th.

    Well.....are we going to have to change our name to Goofy's Greats!
    LOL... Yeah I'm doing the Half for 2014. But 2015 could be a possible attempt for a Goofy. I'll work on that for sure.

    If Liz can do it I'm motivated to try. :)

    All the races should be up to date now. Let me know if I have missed anything!

    I'm fully back to running after Marathon Weekend. Working my mileage back up - this week will be about 20 miles this week, and about 24 next week. I have my next big race in 5 weeks - a HM. Not sure how I am going to run it yet. Would like to push for a PB but my knee is acting up a bit. I slipped on some blasted ice last night and pulled it a bit. We'll see how the next few weeks shake out and then I will decided if I will try for the PB or take it a bit easier. I have another HM in June so can always shoot for that one. It's the Niagara Falls Women's HM.

    Oooh, Carolynn, I hope your knee feels better soon. Stupid ice. My DH fell the other day too. Good luck running, hope it doesn't get in the way of your HM coming up. Sounds like you've been training hard for it!

    It's not a big deal, but I just noticed I'm not listed for the 10K. I am your 4th duck doing the DDD! :thumbsup2

    Way to go Ducks! And good luck to our Princess runners - You're almost there!!!

    I am working on convincing the DH that the 2015 Goofy will be worth the cost. He keeps throwing me the "we could take a cruise for that much money and NOT have to run 39.3 miles" argument at me. But I know all I have to do is sign myself up and he'll be with me. He's too competitive. ;)

    They just announced a Color Run in Baton Rouge. Has anyone ever done one? It looks fun, but $40 for a 5K...where you get hit with paint balls??? Worth it?

    Happy trails everyone!

    Liz: DDPYOGA stands for Diamond Dallas Paige Yoga (he use to be a wrestler). It incorporates the stretching of yoga with body/muscle resistance. I have lost double digit weight and several inches in the 3 1/2 weeks I've used it. So far so good!

    Jeni: The color run is fun, it just gets a little messy. Also I heard our mutual friend want be trying the Goofy or for that fact another full. We will have to work on him about that.

    Hope everyone is well

    That should be fun. We were there when Steph was little, before Winter. It's a nice place.

    I signed up for another race, doing the Flying Pig half marathon in Cincinnati on May 5th. Debbie is doing this one also, she wanted the shirt.:lmao: This is a new one for us and it is a hilly course. Looks like I need to find some hills to train on. I had a good swim today, managed 2000 yards (80 laps). I was chatting with my old swim coach today and asked him what our swim practice were like and he said we used to do 3500 yards for morning practice and 6500 yards for afternoon practice. The things you could do at 17, I can't imagine swimming that much anymore.
    Everyone have a good weekend.

    We'll get him, Tim. He won't be able to hold out once we all sign up. Then I'll remind him that he'll have to stare at my Goofy medal every day in my office. ;) And way to go on the weight loss!

    Ok Augie. I've got an "it's a small world" moment for you.
    Back at WDW marathon weekend, do you remember waiting for a bus for DTD at the BW and chatting with a woman? You got on the bus together and she told you about her friend from Long Island with the same accent and you said her friend should do the beer run? You were talking to my friend Beth! She's from Michigan - Liz met her in corral D Sunday morning. I met her from the Passporter boards. I'm typing up a trip report over there and she recognized you in the photo we took at the Contemporary.

    It's a small world after all.....:)

    DH and I are planning on running the Bay St Louis bridge tomorrow. As part of my goals to improve my form and speed and actually doing Galloway's drills, it was my idea to do the bridge. Hope I remember that when we hit the incline. Hubby is fond of saying "Hills are your friends", to which I often counter with frenemies, bc the downhill sure is nice but the uphill can be brutal!

    Hi Tanya, that's so funny! I do remember the bus ride and telling her about the beer run. She said her friend lives in Port Jeff, where I went to HS. I also remember her texting her friend about the beer run, I wonder if she made it. I wore last year's Half shirt, which got some comments, met a few people that had also just run, one guy had a Goofy shirt on!

    Other than the beer race, have not run since Disney. I have swam a bit. Seems I have no problem riding in the cold but still have a hard time running in it. But it will be warmer soon!

    Have a great week, everyone!

    Jennie~How'd your bridge run go?

    Unfortunately, our bridge run didn't happen. I am frustrated at my time management. Chili, baking, cake decorating, all took longer than planned, and Saturday was a wash. On Sunday, we stopped for lunch after church, did a few things around the house and then realized if we went to go run the bridge as planned, we'd be late to a function with our Sunday School class -- the reason for the chili and cake. So I guess I will be doing an incline on the treadmill tonight. The lack of downhill reward should be good penance. lol

    btw, Welcome DisneyFreakNumeroUno!!!
