    I enjoy every podcast, but this may have been the best. We were on our way to our first Disney World Marathon Weekend, and this was just what we needed. Awesome podcast!

    300 miles! Ughh! LOL! I’m on Lou’s side for that one. Do you guys have odometers on your shoes?

    Again, some day I’ll have to get down to check out the marathon. Ran is school yeeeeears ago – loved it. Sadly, left hip and knees won’t allow me to run anymore and I don’t think I could walk fast enough to avoid the sweeper? But at least I could come down and support others. May be able to do the 5K???

    Thanks again for another great show, Lou, Jimmy and Ladies!!!
