Wow...we have been here at Fort Wilderness for 5 days already!!!! The marathon weekend is over and everyone is exhausted...even the non runners!!!! Jim and Tina arrived on Thursday and have been whirlwind ever since. Dinner for the past 3 nights with Carol at her house and tonight at Carrabas. The runners needed to carb up...we didn't need it but decided to go along for the ride. We attempted to get to the half marathon yesterday took us 2 1/2 hours and we got as far as the Magic Kingdom!!!! Disney is great with the marathon runners, but really could use some improvement in transporting the spectators. So today we decided to head right over to epcot for the marathin finish we arrived with time to spare. Tina and Jim did the Goofy Challenge...13.1 miles on Saturday and 26.2 on Sunday...I really admire them in all their craziness!!!! Who runs 39.3 miles in 24 hours!!! And get up at 2:30 am to get a bus at 3:00 am....crazy!!!! Well another marathon is down in history!!! Guess they will sign up for next year. And 2 years ago it was 22 degrees out and we attended the marathon and today it was 80...not that I am complaining, but it was hot!!!! Well here for another 2 days then moving down the road about 3 miles. Hopefully one of these days we will make it to the park for the day!!!
