VERY quick update from sunny Florida...

It seems like it was a while ago... actually, hang on a minute. It was a while ago! Nearly a week ago, last Sunday the 13th of January I stood on that starting line at the WDW marathon and can now proudly say that not only did I start but I completed it, got my medal and didn't die in the process!

So okay, it took a bit longer than planned (I haven't checked the official time but it was around 6 hours 45 min) but I did take around 20 photos around the course because I kept bumping into old friends: Pooh, Alice, Snow White, Aladdin, Buzz and Mickey among others. It was also a very, very humid day (again, don't know the official number but I was pretty warm at 6am, before I did any running!) and once the sun came out it was not only humid but hot. So I had to slow way down if I wanted to finish alive.

The day after the marathon we drove to Cape Canaveral and have spent the last few days enjoying the wonders of Ft Lauderdale and Ft Myers Beach - and I haven't had access to the internet! I have a quick chance now but probably won't write a full update until I get back - and I'll make sure I include some of those great photos!

So I'll be back then. Thanks for all your support and stay tuned!
