JessM, looks like you are heading for your first stay at Boardwalk and your first Disney Run. We will be staying at Boardwalk in a few months for the second time - you are going to love it. Be sure to check out the piano bar and the dueling pianos. As for the Disney run, I did the 2011 Disney 1/2 Marathon and the Tower of Terror 10-Miler in 2012. The 1/2 Marathon was my first and only and one that I will always cherish. Be sure to take in all the sights along the way and the cheering crowds who will be rooting for you.
