    WELCOME!!!!

    Warning: My first ever PTR!

    Warning: My first ever 1/2 marathon!



    Last week I saw the advertisement of this new 1/2 marathon...I am not a runner....never paid attention to any marathon stuff here on the DIS...but...did I read....Wine & DINE?!:banana:

    Having just returned from a fabulous F & W trip...I started thinking...then started a thread....in the wrong place , cause of course, I had no clue there was something called WISH on the DIS:rolleyes1
    Here is the link to that thread....may serve up a few laughs!

    http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2322933

    So, in a week, I have returned to the gym...heck, our year membership has been paid...I am currently walking briskly...lol....3-4 miles each visit...tomorrow will be my 4th visit .

    In the last week...my friends here have supported me...(RachelTori and PNO4TE) who say they will be at the finish line waiting for me:goodvibes

    I have "met" alot of other disers, who could probably say I have been stalking them after finding the WISH board...lol...they are the nicest people:goodvibes
    Can't tell you the valueable info I have already received!!

    Registration for this event is next Monday, and the event is Oct 1-2, 2010:lmao:
    Writing this PTR will help keep myself accountable...

    I really feel they I need/want to accomplish this goal for ME!

    I am 43, have 5 kids...oldest is 21..youngest 3...I love my Disney and DVC..and want to be fit and not have to worry about that extra skin that has accumulated around my midriff that last couple of years...what is up with that?!:rotfl2:
    I keep trying to lose it....but it always seems to find me again! ugh!

    Oops..one more warning...
    I am known for my chronic resort changing..can never decide on a resort prior to my trips...lol..however....I am trying to improve!

    A comment about my title....L@@K at THOSE Wine Legs....(may be changing title here and there!)

    for the wine drinkers out there...I am sure they got my pun...lol

    For the non-wine drinkers....

    Wine Legs is a term ...

    Every once in a while you will see someone swirl their glass of wine, raise it towards the light and watch with bated breath for the wine's legs to appear, a mythical indicator of wine quality. These legs, or tears as the French refer to them, are the streaks of wine forming on the side of the wine glass. The legs were once thought to be associated with a wine's quality (the more legs, the higher the quality). However, the legs have more to do with physics, the wine's surface tension and alcohol content, than perceived quality.

    Yay! :yay: A PTR from Diana! And thanks for the mention. Means I have to keep up with this thing. I guess. :rotfl:

    I am proud of you! Can't wait to hit you over the head with a bottle of chardonnay when you come across that finish line.



    Oh, wait... that's what you do to ships. ;) Guess you will have to drink it instead! ::yes::

    When you want to have it say something "meaningful" instead of a bunch of html gibberish, do this:

    1. Copy the link you want to have.

    2. Open the post where you want it to appear.

    3. Click on the "world/link" button above the post. A new window will open and it will look like this:

    [​IMG]

    4. Right click the spot with the grayed-out http:// and paste the copied link you wish to have. Click OK

    5. When the link appears in your post it will have what appears to be two links, but one of them is grayed-out. Replace the grayed-out "stuff" with what you want it to say and click OK.

    6. Look at your pretty link!

    Let me know if it works!! :goodvibes

    HI!! :wave:

    I'm procrastinating!! (I really need to go out and do 4 miles... but brrrr... and... hmmm )

    <I have no idea what the above post was in reference to - I am completely computer illiterate!! I know I use the ctrl C to copy and the ctrl V to paste, unless I'm on dh's mac - then its open aplle C and open apple V!)

    Someone told me how to do the link in my siggy - I forget how to do it - I just copy and paste then add the new link!!

    Lets see if I can do that here - but put a space in... nope the spaces didnt fool this computer ok - I'm going to delete something...

    ]COLOR="Magenta"[]url="http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?p=22336153&posted=1#post22336153"]FACE YOUR FEARS Half Marathon Pre-Trip Report link[/url][/COLOR]

    OK that worked - now take the ] and reverse it to this [ color = "red" ] and the [url

    so when I want to put my post in I just copy the link http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?p=34293707#post34293707 (your link) and then your title - I'd delete the face your fears etc and put in your title Whining All the Way to the Finish Line...Wine&Dine 1/2.."L@@K at THOSE Wine Legs!"

    OK
    Whining All the Way to the Finish Line...Wine&Dine 1/2.."L@@K at THOSE Wine Legs!" link

    see if that worked?
    (cut and paste and copy and paste are my friends!!)

    You guys should start a chronic resort changer anonymous group. I won’t be joining. For me it’s Boardwalk Inn… Boardwalk Inn …. :cloud9: Except for marathon week-end when I can’t afford Boardwalk Inn. :sad1: So, (hopefully) going back in October 2010 for Boardwalk Inn. :banana:

    I highly recommend Boardwalk Inn.

    … incase you missed that: it’s the Boardwalk Inn.

    ;)

    :lmao: I had no idea that group really exists! I don't know when my love of the BW came about but I have no desire to be at any of the other resorts with the exception of POFQ - my back-up resort when I can't talk myself into blowing money on a deluxe. POFQ will be my hotel in Jan for the marathon.

    ...ok, to be honest: I've only stayed at the BWI once. It was last Dec for my 30th b-day splurge trip and I saved up for two years for that vacation. I honestly don't know if I can justify staying there again - I just have dreams of doing so this next October b/c I loved it so much. For the first time I actually enjoyed being in my hotel/hotel room and having a balcony view of the boardwalk was fabulous

    Sandy: psst! those four miles are calling your name. Think of how wonderful you'll feel tonight being able to report on your pre-TR that you did them! :thumbsup2

    Hi Diana, I think that's wonderful way to get motivated for exercising. :thumbsup2 I am thinking about doing the half-marathon in January 2011... :rolleyes1

    Thanks for the lovely picture of you and your daughters, I think I never really have seen a picture of you before. So it is great to put a face to a screen name! :goodvibes

    It's a good day when you learn something new! :thumbsup2
    BTW - I am a wine drinker, but I guess I am not serious enough because I never heard of wine legs! :lmao:

    Anyway, Hi Diana! Can't wait to hear all about your prep for the half-marathon. That's a great way to make sure you stick with exercise. Unfortunately I tried this with DH, something along the lines of "I'd love to do the 5K at Disney and it would really motivate me to exercise - we could plan a trip for that, don't you think?" His response..."there's plenty of 5K's around here you can do".

    :furious:

    Happy training! Looking forward to more... :goodvibes
