    This seems like a fun challenge! I'm in training for the ToT 10miler and the marathon, so this is a nice way to track that. It took me 3 days/30 hours to drive the 1900 miles from here to there...let's see how long it takes to walk and run. Also, since I'm closer to DL, I'll figure that too. I'll start with my September so far.

    I'm going to start by tracking my progress to HK Disneyland - that's my closest park. And I'm only working on the distance airport-airport because it's really too hard to work out the actual distance and in the scheme of thousands of miles it's not really going to make much difference :rotfl:

    So apparently HK Disneyland (airport to airport of course) is 4603.45 miles away.

    I'm counting all the workouts I have recorded on my Garmin since I decided to start training for a Disney run. So far I have done 18.6 miles. So for me so far, it's...

    18.6/4603.45 which is um... 0.004% of the way :lmao:

    Didn't know this thread existed. I have been doing the same thing in my runs. In fact I have been printing out maps to actually track where I am at. Here is my progress for the last 4 weeks...

    74.25/1279
    5.8% of the distance.

    BTW, I am skipping the resorts. My run takes me right to the MK. :)

    I'd like to join! I've been walking for about 2 weeks, but I got a pedometer thing that keeps a running total 9 days ago. I love that thing! I have 1544 miles to get there, so:

    Thought I posted earlier this week, but I guess I just previewed the post instead of submitting it.

    I started on Sunday, so as of last night I've finished 8.25 miles.

    8.25/1,720
