The Great Dolphin Runners!


This picture commemorates the first annual Great Dolphin Run (5 miles
give or take a Mickey Ear). It was a great evening of slow running
around the grand resorts of Walt Disneyworld in Orlando, Florida. We
finished up the night with a decadent table full of french fries and
nachos at the Fountain Restaurant in the Dolphin Hotel... and our
great surprise at the very next table was Steve Ballmer, the CEO of
Microsoft (no lie) quietly enjoying a Mickey Deluxe Cheeseburger and a
big Chocolate Shake. He was in the pressence of real greatness, that
being Marathon Chris, Maddy, Shirley and, of course, The Zen Runner...

Great memories - better friends. On to next year!


Thanks to Adam for the photos, summary and dinner!!

Here is the route around the Dolphin and Boardwalk that we ran:


Sport Tracks says we ran 4.22 miles in 46:37 min. Thanks that everyone ran my slow pace! :-)

My iPod gave me credit for 4.74 miles - but I started it earlier while we were in the parking lot!

What a great night!
