It's Wednesday ...

Ignoring the obvious, let's just say that this morning Steve, Molly, and I got up at the butt crack of dawn (as did Maribeth, who gave us a ride to the airport) for our 5:50am flight to Orlando. We will be participating in the Disney Marathon Weekend, which will be this weekend. As in January 8-11. Are you following along?

Anyhow, I supposed it's a good thing, since the races (and there are four of them) will all be starting at the same butt-crack of dawn each morning. I really didn't need any sleep or to sleep in to the late hour of 7am.

Anyhow, we had a nice flight down, and I even got to see Disney World from up above. It's always a nice sight to see, almost as nice as seeing the landing strip beneath the plane's wheels when we land, which is almost as nice as pulling up to the terminal once the flight is over.

We obtained the rental car without a problem and headed to the race expo, joining the millions of others who were on the same mission. Nevertheless, we managed to get our bibs and race shirts and mill around the expo and shop at the vendors (not really purchasing anything). We then headed to Boardwalk, our home for the next several days, and checked in. We then proceeded to eat lunch, shop around Epcot, and eventually find our room.

There wasn't much more to do, except unpack and get ready for the upcoming races. Tomorrow is the 5K with the latest start of the weekend, at 6:15am. Which means we only need to leave the hotel before 5am.  And remind me why I do these?
Today is a gift because: safe, smooth ride to Orlando; great room location at hotel; lunch with Steve and Molly; short lines at expo
