    Hmm... you know, I used to be a pretty good runner back in the day, and I've been putting a lot of thought (and physical effort) into getting back into running as a regular thing again. Maybe, just maybe, this could be something I should try to get into. Hmmm.... maybe I'll look into it.

    For the past few years, my wife and I seem to visit WDW on the marathon weekend (JetBlue seems to always offer great fares that weekend). Each year my wife says, "next year we have to do the marathon" and each year I get out of it. Now, thanks to Lou talking this event up on the show, my wife has already begun training for it. Actually my wife read an online article on MSNBC about marathons and WDW was ranked as the forth easiest in the country. So now, if we don't make, we can say we weren't even able to the fourth easiest marathon in the USA. No pressure though

    Lou, I will be running the Disney Half-Marathon next January. I completed the Goofy Challenge in January 2007 and the Mickey Marathon in January 2006. I will only have time for the Donald Half-Marathon next January as my family and I will be boarding the Disney Magic later that day for a cruise. If the meet is in the days before the race, then I will try to stop by.

    Thanks for the great podcast!

    I will also be doing the 2009 half-marathon - would love to do 2008 but it won't work out with my schedule - now the Twilight Zone 13k is worth some real thought....

    Just printed out the 1/2 marathon application and getting ready to mail it out. Now we are just trying to finalize the details. Soooo....it would be half and yes.
    What would the meet be like?
    Lou, will you be signing autographs? LOL

    WDW Radio, by far the best podcast out there, non-Disney podcasts included.
