WDW Marathon Weekend 2010

This year I once again attended the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend and even though this was my fifth year attending there are many things that set this particular weekend apart from the others. 

This was the first Walt Disney World Marathon weekend since the conception of RunningoftheEars.com.  There were several ROTE rallies planned throughout the weekend to ensure we spent plenty of time with friends.   There was a group gathering at Port Orleans Riverside, a group trip to Downtown Disney, a catered dinner at the Contemporary, watching fireworks from the Polynesian and the annual trip around the World Showcase at EPCOT to celebrate our accomplishments.

This year my father was signed up for a distance greater than the 5K.  Yes, we got him to sign up for his first half marathon.  Though his training didn’t go as planned we did get him to the start line, healthy, and as ready as he could be to take on the distance.

My father’s family came down to participate in the weekend for the first time.

And last but not least, I gave into peer pressure and signed myself up for the Goofy Race and a Half Challenge.
