    So we all have run hundreds and thousands of miles training for Disney races. What is your best crazy training story.... Mine is.. One day I was doing a simple 6 mile run on a service road near my house when I saw a dead deer on the side of road, about 70 yards ahead, and a guy checking him...

    Return To Sleepy Hollow....

    Any word on if this event is coming back in 2020? WE attended in 2017, 2018 and loved it. Probably the main reason we chose November last year over October was that they did not run this event, Hoping for a Return of the Return.

    The Crowds this year at WDW weekend were not runDisney's fault

    I know this could be a part of the larger WDW Marathon thread but I think it's a stand alone thread, If the mods don't agree, that is obviously fine, and their discretion. I heard all weekend people in lines all over the parks blaming the marathoner's for the insane crowds. I mean 100 minute...

    Who is second?

    I think we can all agree that obviously Mickey is Disney's most iconic/important character. However there are spells where other characters are more profitable to be sure. Some of Mickey's closest friends have even surpassed him for periods. So of all of the Disney company's creations who is the...

    Babysitting during RunDisney events

    Just got word from my boss, looks like the flight to DL this year is on him, so we are taking the boys. Anyone ever use a babysitting service for a RunDisney event?
