    It totally rocks. I don't think you are insane, and I doubt in this forum, anyone else would either. Birds of a feather tend to flock together!

    I'll be running as solo as you can be in a WISH shirt. I love that you feel a sense of belonging! My parents will be at the end (hopefully!)

    Historically that is when the first MVMCP occurs. It just so happens to be race weekend too now. ;)

    Agreed, WISHers never run alone. It's just you and a few hundred people you've already talked to! My DH and DDs will be at the end, but as for the run I am a solo. My youngest DD could easily place in Corral A, but she doesn't quite meet the age requirements. :crazy2: But I imagine they'll be riding Soarin' and TT until they realize I'm getting close to the home stretch! :thumbsup2

    Nice job on the Little Rock Half!:thumbsup2 I know all about those runners who you set your sights on, leave in the dust, just to have them reappear out of nowhere. HATE that!!:furious:

    Going down the stairs to Soarin' last year... that was terrible. But riding it 4 times in a row without having to get off was awesome. I ran across the finish line and straight to Spaceship Earth! The longest lines were at the food booths but there were virtually none for rides.

    I may or may not be making a solo run. DH has been having some tendonitis issues. Not that he runs with me anyway :rolleyes:. I'm too slow for him to stay more than a mile with me. But, if he doesn't run, he'll still go to the after-party or maybe run the 5k in the morning. I'm also hoping to recruit some friends to come out and run though it is a long-shot.

    I'm really hoping that everything falls into place to do this. Decent flight prices, military discounts on park tickets/rooms, parents able to come to watch the kids while we run/party...It feels like a lot has to happen to make this work.

    Hi all. Just received an e-mail from RunDisney regarding host hotels: All-star movies, music and sports. CBR, AKL, SS, BC and BWI. Hope this helps.

    Cindy :thumbsup2

    :sad2: I need to think about this. A deluxe is for sure out after my PHM trip last month, and the mods and values I was considering aren't options. Looks like Disney will be missing out on me renewing my AP and we'll be staying at Swolphin. I can walk over to BC or BW to catch a bus.

    I'm more than a little irritated about our options as well. I think we're going to be staying at a non-hosting resort, and I'll fight my way over the expo and take a cab back after the post race party. None of the value and moderate options even blip on my screen, and I'm not staying ten days in a hotel that i don't want to be in for one race. :rolleyes2
