If you really want to go next level with the MB costume, you should add an AP slider (although then you risk people trying to steal it because they can't get one of their own).
Also... remind me to try to track you down before the 10K so that I can see the costume in person!

    Just days away now...

    I leave bright and early on Jan. 9th. I keep seeing all of the memories on facebook and on my timehop from the last few years because the weekend had already started at this point. I am beyond excited to get back to WDW and run Dopey for the third time. I obviously have a long time to think about marathon weekend in the future but I am honestly not sure what I will run next year. I think I will run but not sure it will be Dopey again. I do really like the challenge but the expense has added up and I do want to do other races. At the very least I would do Goofy since its an anniversary year. Again long time to think about that!

    Like @jennamfeo mentioned in her journal, I have no family or close friends with me on this trip. I didn't really think about it until she mentioned it. I did Wine and Dine alone and had no issue but this will be my first marathon weekend without family/close friends. I do have all my DIS friends though and I know it will be a great time for sure.

    I have been watching weather of course and it looks good so far. As long as I don't need a winter coat like last year I don't really care. I don't want to run a marathon in 90 degrees either but I think that is unlikely at this point too.

    I have just pulled out the suitcases to think about packing. I will definitely pack several different options incase weather does change on us which it certainly has before.

    This is my 5th consecutive marathon weekend and I am planning on bringing some old medals to get photos. I am thinking my first rD medal (WDW 10K), my first marathon (2017), and maybe first Dopey (2017 asterisk because of the half...)

    I have done the following...

    2015 10K
    2016 5K
    2016 Half
    2017 Dopey
    2018 Dopey
    2019 Dopey

    So no distinct pattern. I don't have 5 10K medals or 5K's or anything like that.

    Anyways I can't wait for 2019 Marathon Weekend! (And once its over I will be sad and think now what...)

    Well, crap. Next year is a Goofy anniversary? I'm gonna pretend I don't know that.

    I'm completely distracted right now with the trip looming ever closer. Only 3 more days of work and then I'm out. We are going to do some preliminary packing this weekend and then it will REALLY feel real.

    Looking forward to seeing you there! We are heading to the expo on Wednesday too, but will probably be mid to late afternoon before we make it over.

    We'll probably miss each other there then. We get in a little after 1pm and are heading to the expo after dropping off stuff- so probably 3-4pm.
    (Maybe see you @ZellyB there though... which I know what you look like from your journal, but I don't think we're instagram friends, so if I see you, I'll be sure to say who I am haha)

    Another 48.6 in the books.

    It really was a great week with some great people. We have some awesome individuals on this website and the community makes for an amazing time at our favorite place.

    Trip report is coming soon. I am planning on Wine and Dine next and then likely Marathon Weekend again (maybe Dopey... maybe not... who knows...)
