I live in Seattle & took my first trip to Dineyland as a baby. I finally made it to WDW for the first time in 1998 & Disneyland Paris in 2007. Finally, in 2012 I became a proud Disney Vacation Club member!

It's that humidity that just about killed me last year! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  886.9 #3 2:58PM
yea i dont do well in the humidity either but the last couple years for the Disneyland half were pretty bad so hopefully it wont make too much of an impact besides being super sweaty - Dave   11412.7 #2 3:21PM

Check out what I received in the mail today! It's too bad I will probably only visit one more time before my AP expires. Why does WDW have to be 3,000 miles away???
You'd think since I have the premiere pass I would get one for both coasts!! - mzdisnee  457.2 #13 8:06PM

My final long run before Wine & Dine is complete! It was tough... I can't even tell you how many miles my legs just burned! So much so, that I actually put on my uber uncomfortable compression socks. The Wine & Dine half marathon is going to be a piece of cake after these 14 miles!
You and I need to have a serious talk on the 6th. This is getting out of hand. And I'm genuinely worried that you still run and think it's fun.....er. I mean. Good job. Yay. - IndyandMarion  1242.5 #1 10:38PM
You are AWESOME!!! Such an inspiration!!! - brittandkell  412.1 #460 2:10PM
good job!! Thats your final long run? Why? I would do one Sunday if I were you but thats just me - Dave  11412.7 #2 3:23PM
That's it for long runs... Just 3-4 mile runs from here on out. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  886.9 #3 4:37PM
Having only a week between long runs is recommended? - mrsincredible  872.8 #5 4:53PM
@Mrs I There are several different schools of thought... @Dave Do you follow a specific training plan? - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  886.9 #3 5:41PM
Yeah, it's kinda an individual thing. I do one a week also when I'm training. I loosely follow Hal Higdon's plans, and that's what he recommends. They are generally 12 week cycles, with one long run on most weeks, sometimes subbing a 5K or 10k race. Disney's/Galloway's are, what, 16 week cycles or so, with a long run every 14 days-ish? I tried that originally and it just didn't feel quite right for me, so I switched it up--I'm pretty happy with the one per week method. But again, it's a very individual thing and you have to listen to your body. If you need a bit more time between long runs, then it's really important to give yourself that--you'll be better off in the "long run" (pun intended, lol)! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  536.5 #326 10:03AM
I have just always felt that I like to do one test run a week before and then do 3 miles lets say maybe on Tuesday or Wed. this week i did 3 last night, then I will do 7 tonight 6 Friday and probably 12 on Sunday. I'm not sure if I will get another run in before my trip though since I leave Wed morning and also I am running the avengers the week after so I want to take it a little easier than normal - Dave   11412.7 #2 2:22PM
How do you work running that many miles during the week? I usually run 3 miles on Tues and Thurs... But, I really dread it after working all day! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  886.9 #3 2:57PM
I do about 20-35 miles a week. I usually do it after work and then in the mornings on the weekends...it does take out a ton of my personal life during the week but I have some goals I want to reach so I need to stick with it - Dave   11412.7 #2 3:23PM

Did you get into corral A? - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  886.9 #3 6:11PM
NO!!!!! I am annoyed. A is too much for me but I should be in B or C. I got C for Avengers the week after so I dont understand the logic since I should be done under 2hrs - Dave   11412.7 #2 3:25PM
I was hoping for corral F (I qualified by 2013 standards) but, I'm in G. I'm guessing that the 5 year anniversary brought more experienced runners than last year. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  886.9 #3 4:36PM
Heck the opposite happened to me... I'm brand new to this, no prior race experience whatsoever and they put me in J and I should be in the last corral. That's 3 up from the back! How that happened I will never know, but I'll take it. - mrsincredible  872.8 #5 4:49PM

At Tokyo Dining, my friend ordered the ume combo for dinner. She loved the California roll so much, she ordered another serving! I told them we were celebrating a birthday, so they brought out my fiend's green tea cheesecake with a candle and sang Happy Birthday in Japanese. (You can see how excited she was!) We finished dinner by watching Illuminations! from our table. I will definitely be back!

Another first for me this last visit was dinner at Tokyo Dining. The service was outstanding! They couldn't have been cuter, sweeter, or more accommodating! From the moment I checked in they were very attentive to my special dietary restrictions as a vegetarian. We started with the edamame, I ordered the vegetable tempura and sushi combo for dinner, and had chocolate ginger cake for dessert. Every  More...
Looks awesome. The ginger cake is amazing! - mmddgp  446.1 #15 4:45PM

What "things" on Friday? You are required to attend packet pickup on either Friday or Saturday to turn in your waiver and pickup your bib. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  886.9 #3 12:42PM

Last Wednesday, Indy and I rode Maelestrom for the final time. I left the ride photos to the professional (keep your eye on the Outpost...) but took several photos of the outside and beautiful murals in the queue myself. We were not alone. Everyone was snapping countless photos of this Epcot favorite. As a Scandinavian, I am really going to miss these Vikings and trolls! ❀️
