    You pick up your chip at the World of Sports and have it validated there 9make sure it's YOUR chip and identifying you) and then you attach it to your running shoe. It is clipped off at the end of the race...unless you want to keep it and pay something like $30 but I believe you then can use it for later races.
    Thanks Mike, I just worry about the details and like everyone I am interested in my final time. I noticed they post all the times on the Wide World of Sports website so you can search by name. Very cool.

    You mentioned on the podcast that the WDW Marathon didn't suit your style of running. Is that because it is too busy and you can't get a good rythm..just wondering

    Hi!

    I hope everyone's marathon training is going really well still! i dream of taking part in a wdw marathon one day.. when time and money are a bit more plentiful!

    just wondering.. what kinda music does everyone listen to while theyre training?!

    I go to the gym bout 5 times a week and i have recently made a 'disney gym' playlist on my iPod! one of the best tracks is the Fantasmic! soundtrack... it really gets me going faster - plus it's nearly 30mins long.. the time really does fly (only problem is that i have it on so loud.. i think everyone around me can hear it too.. oops!)

    This is the last year? I couple we met over the last weekend said this is a yearly event and she has attended since it started there. I was hoping to work for that next year so I am disappointed that this is the last year.
