Is it wrong that I'm already packing?

I'm worse than a kid at Christmas, I'm making several lists and cross referencing them twice.

I've spent (way to much) quality time on the Disney Parks Blog http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/
and I've discovered that 2013 is the Year of the Ears. Each month will feature new ears. Anyone who has seen me work at Copps, or for that matter been in my house, knows I have a wee collection of ears.

From the huge anniversary Sorcerer Mickey hat to the fabu glow in the dark Jack Skellington ones, you can find them adorning surfaces in my Disney themed room.

What's funny is that I was on the blog looking for the information for the Jeff Galloway meet up and instead found myself mesmerized and squealing at the assorment of 'couture' ears being released in January.

Unrelated to that new discovery, I realized something that I need to commit to the deepest reaches of my grey matter. I hate running winter events. Hypothermic, Frosty, Chilly, anything with a snowman logo, Ewwww...unless it's taking place in a southern hemisphere, I don't want to do it.

Case in point, I ran the Boxing Day 10 Miler. 10 miles equals 16km in minus bleck with snow covered ice slicked roads and trails. We got that nifty fat little snowman medal. I also got cold, unhappy and tired, and was faint for 20 minutes after we ran (I think 'cause we headed indoors without cooling down, right into a hot room and were handed hot soup).

We started with the walkers, mostly to get the darn thing over with, and we were still passed by everyone who started half an hour later.....sigh.

We have another 2 weekends of back to back running (10k and 20k this weekend) and then we are as ready as we will ever be.
