runDisney came to their senses if you will and decided to adjust their packet pick up policy. More specifically, they fixed it so that the policy that was clearly stated on the registration page when you signed up will be the policy you have to abide by for that race. The Avengers 1/2 will be the first time they have the new policy in place. I feel so much better now that they’ve seen the error of their ways. I don’t have to be morally outraged anymore… for now, at least.
I can live with the policy since I always picked up my own packet anyway and now my sister can either decide she wants to spend the vacation days or she just doesn’t run. I’m still running. And now that we’re on speaking terms I can’t wait. This is also why when a certain someone won a trip to Tower of Terror my initial reaction was, “hmm… not so scary Halloween party…” as opposed to “I HATE THOSE PEOPLE. I CANNOT RUN THEIR RACES EVER AGAIN!”
But before I can financially commit to anything, I’ve got to pay for the Dopey Challenge. I’ve been really good at not spending on anything and sticking with my budget. Like a no-spending ninja. I CAN DO THIS. Self-control. Restraint. And when I feel like things are getting a little tight I just sit myself down, close my eyes, and try to smell the Yacht Club lobby. I’m dead serious, I am literally spending pretty close to nothing right now aside from rent and my cable bill.
It’s a little sad when I think about how much I don’t do so I can afford to do this kind of stuff, but honestly I enjoyed it so much last year (or at least, that’s what my mind is telling me now) that I can’t wait!
AND ON TOP OF THAT WHEN I THINK IT’LL NEVER GET HERE AND ALL I WANT TO DO IS WALK THE WORLD SHOWCASE I REMEMBER I’M GOING FOR WINE & DINE, TOO!!!!
Who’s in for marathon weekend next January?! Where are you staying?!
[FYI Yacht Club’s going to be where the party is. Just so you know.] AND I’M GETTING REALLY EXCITED.
