As I write this, I'm on my way back from Orlando where I ran the Walt Disney World marathon with my daughter Sarah.  Talk about a fun marathon!  Just under 20,000 of us ran past all the Disney characters, marching bands, a choir in full robes, green army soldiers from Toy Story barking orders at us and through all 4 theme parks including Cinderella's castle.

We started at 5:30 am to a sky filled with colourful fireworks.  Many runners dressed up as Disney characters including Sarah, who was Snow White.  It was extrememly humid (98% humidity).  I spoke to a runner at the end of the marathon who was dressed as Woody.  He had an awesome costume!  He said the hardest part for him was that the extreme humidity had caused him to sweat so much that his hat must have weighed at least 5 pounds.  Someone else said they felt like they "hit the wall" at 50 meters into the run beacuse of the humidity!

Although I was 6 minutes behind my last marathon time, I was pleased to find out that I had finished 3rd out of 559 men in my age category.  Not bad for an old guy, eh?!

Next up is the Boston Marathon in April.  Woo hoo!
