🌟Ok.. These pics of this morning's run have motivated and inspired me to do the next Disney run on August 31. I DO NOT run and will need tons of encouragement! Is there anyone else willing to make the commitment with me that will need some help? If we can use this post as a commitment, I will keep track of us newbies and find a way that we can work together (be it sending words of encouragement through DMs, etc) to keep our commitment and be successful on our first run!! Since this will be my first run ever, I'll be doing the 5k, but sign up fir whatever your comfort/ ability level is and LET'S DO THIS!! Who's with me?!?! Team MW!!!🌟

Why can't they do a "Zumba dance with Disney" or something like that? I'm also NOT a runner so I admire all of you runners out there! - MissAmericaSings  380.5 #539 11:14AM
Right? Or maybe we can just walk really fast ;) - ElectricMayhemMom  997.8 #166 12:05PM
True...I like how you think ;) - MissAmericaSings  380.5 #539 12:12PM
Yes! Yoga with Eeyore. - BettyPoop  237.4 #1406 4:07PM
That's an idea... Dance your way around the park.... No running rquired - dimplesdanie  1236.7 #118 5:46PM
that would be so awesome. I would live to do some zumba with disney. - cinderella85rivas  191.0 #2001 6:18PM
I know how you all feel. Running is the 1 thing I refuse to do. But I did just get to zumba and I'm really excited about it! - Poisen_Ivy  271.1 #1056 10:03AM
Count us in! Me and my mini (18) are going to run! It's our first, and we started training in earnest this past week. We are so excited, but we are also sure that plenty of pixie dust and encouragement will be needed! Let's do this! - mrstoad  256.1 #1203 11:27AM
Yeah!! I signed my minis up for the kids run! We can do this!πŸ‘ - RCmom  5229.2 #16 11:30AM
4 newbie runner commitments so far! Who else wants to join us?!πŸ˜ƒ - RCmom  5229.2 #16 11:51AM
you mentioned you signed up for the 5k...is it the family 5k? - MaidMiriam  307.7 #793 10:27PM
I won't be able to do the next one but hoping for the 5K next year. Can't run but sure can walk if it's allowed. I meet with a trainer tomorrow to get a workout routine specific for me. Hubby is even going for support. Thanks for all the inspiration everyone! And great idea RC mom! - MrsSchnooks  3010.4 #38 4:53PM
I signed up for the Half on September 1st, & I'm all about encouragement, so count me in! :) - GrimGrinningAmanda  660.1 #259 11:38AM
Woohoo!! That's 3 of us!πŸ‘ - RCmom  5229.2 #16 11:42AM
Told myself the same thing...I'm in for next year for sure! - socaldad85  106.6 #3340 11:41AM
Woohoo! I'll keep track of us newbies and we will keep each other motivated!! - RCmom  5229.2 #16 11:44AM
Count me in!!! Did you sign up for the half or the 5k? - belle0785  78.4 #3769 11:51AM
Yeah!! Since its our first race, we signed up for the 5k. - RCmom  5229.2 #16 11:57AM
Count me in too. Soo excited - PracticallyPerfectLisa  107.1 #3332 12:06PM
Woohoo!! Me too! - RCmom  5229.2 #16 12:08PM
I have just convinced the hubz to do the 5k and sign our son up for the kids run! - duckymomo  36.4 #5023 12:43PM
Yeah!! This will be great! - RCmom  5229.2 #16 12:50PM
A friend is a marathon runner, just completed her first 50-miler in September I think, found out she has breast cancer and had a lumpectomy in Nov and insisted on completing the California International Marathon before she would start radiation and chemo. She is my inspiration and proves I have no legit excuse to sit on my keester - duckymomo  36.4 #5023 5:10PM
I'm sorry if someone already advised these but you should try the Couch to 5k and Bridge to 10k programs. I was like you, never ran, I even hated running the mile in high school lol. When I tried these, they were easy to follow and you can go at your own pace. I never thought I would EVER be able to run for an hour straight but I did after finishing these programs. Now I'm 10 weeks pregnant with nausea and no energy so, I'm hoping to do these programs after the baby is born. Good luck to you, you definitely CAN do this and you will feel wonderful while doing it :). - kss4tink  218.0 #1667 2:04PM
I love couch to 5k!! I just finished week two and I feel great. - BelleintheTARDIS  258.8 #1179 11:09PM
Your post as definitely encouraged me! I may not be able to make it to August's run, but have been encouraged to get up and run for my health, I've been waiting too long for a wake up call and this is definitely it! And maybe then I'll be ready for next years! - sleepyhead_CM  596.3 #305 2:28PM
That's awesome! Hopefully we'll all come out of this a little healthier.πŸ‘ - RCmom  5229.2 #16 2:37PM
I walk the 5ks....it's really pretty crowded even though they start everyone in waves. It's a lot of fun and NOT timed. The 16min mile requirement is more for the half marathon. (I still can't wrap my head around 13.1 miles) sign up and then search active.com for some 5ks in your area to do before so you get a better idea of distance. In Feb is the Race on the base in Alamitos and a frozen food 5k at Angels stadium. March is the coaster run at Knotts and you get FREE pie!!! Lol. Just have fun!!!!! - CM_Tamstirr  552.1 #329 4:30PM
I just set the goal for myself to run the half marathon next January! I'm not a runner and am still healing from surgery so wanted to set a reasonable goal for myself. I'm just trying to figure out where to start... And which shoes! - luvmygreenarmyman  288.2 #905 8:59PM
I just started running and I got the Nike Free Run+ and Iβ™₯ them. - ILoveDL  59.9 #4162 9:04PM
Go to a specialty shop like Fleet Feet or Roadrunner Sports--most of them have services available to figure out the best shoe for the type of foot you have. They should also analyze the way you run on a treadmill. Don't buy a shoe because it's on sale or trendy or pretty--buy a shoe because it fits your foot and works with your gait. If the right shoe is on sale, then great! But plan on investing in the right one. :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  569.8 #320 9:15PM
I highly highly recommend going to a runners shoe store and being fitted by one of their professionals . It costs nothing to be fitted and you would be surprised how affordable the shoes are there. As a runner .. Please trust me on this advice - eviljules  1191.3 #124 9:17PM
@spoonfulof sugar .. Jinx :) our great minds were thinking alike !! Lol - eviljules  1191.3 #124 9:18PM
Lol :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  569.8 #320 9:22PM
Thanks ladies I'm online now looking for a store near me in AZ. I have flat feet and a knee that likes to act up so I am definitely going to take your advice! - luvmygreenarmyman  288.2 #905 9:25PM
My feet are somewhat flat too. The salesman said Brooks are best for that. I love mine, but need a new pair because theyre now worn out. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  646.8 #272 4:24PM
For any other newbie runners that made the commitment, I suggest reading through this thread. There is are some fabulous tips, advice, apps, etc. Thanks to all the veteran runners for the tips they provided! - RCmom  5229.2 #16 10:28AM
Next runs in Sept,you can do it and with MW friends by your side and those cheering too it so fun and good for you too. - pikarich  3619.9 #28 11:07AM
If you put your mind to it you can do it! I NEVER thought I would say I'm about to run 13 miles tomorrow!! Work hard an train lots and you will be fine! 😘 - CourtyAstroBlisters  688.6 #246 11:08AM
We often do training logs and motivational posts in Chub 33 land! Come join us! I'm pretty sure I'll be running in Sept--I've been running off and on since I was in high school, but I've never done a half! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  569.8 #320 11:13AM
I wish that I could run with ya. I have asthma so running is difficult. You can do it and you will have so much fun! Good luck. - neverenoughDL  5.0 #16828 11:31AM
I'm hoping on doing a 5k soon it'll be my first one. - TINO  379.2 #541 11:32AM
I'm running the Dumbo Double Dare in September. - VikkiMouse  182.2 #2122 11:36AM
Sure thinking about it😬 - snowwannab  717.8 #231 11:40AM
Do it!! We will keep each other committed and excited about the race! - RCmom  5229.2 #16 11:55AM
The comment from Deltachiq made me think harder. Still thinking😏 - snowwannab  717.8 #231 11:58AM
I am planning on making it down next year for the tinkerbell half. - DisneyVacationLover  461.0 #419 11:40AM
What a great post! I so wish I could commit to this but unfortunately our passes are expiring in July and we can't renew so going back in August would be hard. We are 6 hours away in NorCal. Good luck and can't wait to see your updates. - Ldgsg  209.4 #1789 11:45AM
I did my first 5k last Sept and it was so easy. I am not a runner or walker (i am not in any way fit either) but I had no problems. I know you can do it!! I am signing up for the 10k this year and would be happy to motivate you - Deltachiq  1223.2 #119 11:47AM
I might consider it.. It kinda scares me even though I use to run cc in HS. I'm a little chicken.. I defiently need encouragement. - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  803.6 #201 11:47AM
But it looks fun and it would be a new adventure.. - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  803.6 #201 11:48AM
You can do it! I think I'm signing up for the 10k. :) it would be nice to see u again - USCVivian  193.6 #1973 11:59AM
You can do! I'll cheer for you! ;) - MissAmericaSings  380.5 #539 12:13PM
How fast does sign ups fill up? Trying to convince my guy to do it. - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  979.9 #167 11:56AM
Pretty fast from what I've heard!! Do it!! - RCmom  5229.2 #16 11:58AM
And it's a good 7-8 months to train for it. - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  979.9 #167 11:59AM
Yep! We an do this! - RCmom  5229.2 #16 1:23PM
Last year, the half filled in about a month! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  569.8 #320 5:26PM
We're thinking about it. We did the Half last Sept. It was fun but brutal. Very hot day. Go for it! Need to do it once. We did the 5k this morning. So much fun! - jacdanfan  8338.8 #4 12:00PM
It will definitely just be a 5k for my first. Even that intimidated me!😁 - RCmom  5229.2 #16 3:01PM
You can do it RCmom! I think I'm signing up for 10k and I want to do half next year for the tinkerbelle medal. :) - USCVivian  193.6 #1973 12:01PM
I am not a runner either! I would love to do one of the parks runs. Unfortunately I can't do the one in August. When I do, I will let u know and I can be a motivator for u and u for me. I can talk my way out of doing anything. - dimplesdanie  1236.7 #118 12:14PM
Me too and that's what I'm afraid of.😁 If I commit and am held accountable by a group, then I'll be more likely to actually DO it! - RCmom  5229.2 #16 12:19PM
I need to check our plans before I commit. I also need my husband to back me. I am not a runner but I am an avid hiker. 5K or 10K? Hmmm - LaPearleNoir  1389.8 #103 12:27PM
I can't do the race in August...but am thinking of trying for a year from now (I would need alot of time anyway lol). I've always been scared to commit but want to see if I can do it at all. Good luck everyone! πŸŽ‰ - MinnieMousewife  810.1 #199 12:43PM
It will be my first as well! I definitely love this idea. Like you I am not a runner. Would love to be in on this with you! - beautyandherbeast  24.9 #5930 12:59PM
How do you sign up for early registration? - belle0785  78.4 #3769 1:02PM
I'm in!!!!! - AimeePie  23.7 #6095 1:10PM
For the 10K, not the half. - AimeePie  23.7 #6095 1:15PM
Count me in! It will be my first Half! I am NOT a runner, but seeing all of you participate last year has encouraged me to try this year! - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1141.1 #133 1:14PM
Woohoo!! You go girl! I'm only doing the 5k! You are awesome! - RCmom  5229.2 #16 1:21PM
Seriously considering the 10K - LaPearleNoir  1389.8 #103 1:27PM
I did the 5k last year and was so jelly of the big beautiful D medals! I gotsta have that D!!!!! - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1141.1 #133 1:54PM
Yay! Good for you, MWAJBB! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  569.8 #320 5:27PM
I signed up for the Dumbo Double Dare today at the Expo! 😁 - MXPrincess399  714.1 #233 1:21PM
I'm doing that one too! But it won't be my first half. - LilSterner  4769.8 #20 1:25PM
You go girl! - LaPearleNoir  1389.8 #103 1:27PM
It will be my 8th Half. But I've never done back to back races before. I'm really excited for this. - MXPrincess399  714.1 #233 1:31PM
I so wanna try to do the 5k or 10k .. But when do the registraditions open ? - Snow33  191.0 #2000 1:32PM
If you sign up we should practice together since you live so close to me. Let me know so maybe we can set something up. - SBsnowwhite  511.2 #370 5:20PM
I am with you RCmom....and I'm trying to talk my boyfriend into it as well. I have really bad asthma so I can't run, but I'm pretty sure I can walk the course no problem! This will hopefully be the first of many Disney 5Ks that I do. - SBsnowwhite  511.2 #370 1:36PM
Yeah! I talked my hubby into it and our girls will be doing the kids run! - RCmom  5229.2 #16 1:39PM
I have asthma too. Just bring the inhaler and walk when needed. You just need to keep a 16 minute mile. You can do that mostly walking. - AZDisney  610.3 #296 9:35PM
For the ap early registration will you need your ap the day of the race? Can i sign my friend up too that will be running with me or does she have to wait for open registration? - belle0785  78.4 #3769 1:46PM
We are not runners but just convinced my husband to do the 5k. I'm so excited! Training will be harder for me but he is committed to helping. - HalfCaff  426.6 #461 1:49PM
Yeah! We can do this!!πŸ‘ - RCmom  5229.2 #16 1:51PM
It's been on my resolution and bucket list so I'm signing up for the 5k and so I'm so ready to help motivate others. - wickedlyraven.  408.2 #493 1:49PM
I used to be in track and run all the time, I'm totally out of shape now but I'm REALLY thinking of doing this! I just don't even know where to start. πŸ˜‚ - StarWarsLove  403.2 #502 1:56PM
I signed up!! Hopefully I'll still be alive after tomorrow's 1/2! 😱You can do it!! - MissMolly  1280.2 #113 1:57PM
If I could do it you definitely can! We did the half last Sept. Just did the 5K this time. - goofygal  8110.0 #6 2:10PM
So many newbie runners! This is awesome! - RCmom  5229.2 #16 3:12PM
Count me in, not a runner ( even though I walk at least five miles a day). It looks like so much fun! - ShariRenee  5594.3 #15 3:36PM
Yeah!! Sounds like you'll be ready to go!πŸ‘ - RCmom  5229.2 #16 4:03PM
I'm still trying to decide between the half and 10K. I have done 10Ks to date. Will I make it even if I ended up walking the last half? - MoonWillow  381.1 #538 4:11PM
Not sure if I can come, but I do want to recommend the 5k Runner app for the iPhone or iPod. I really hate running, but needed to do more cardio & downloaded this app to get me started. It took about 2 months to get thru the program, but I can run for 30 minutes without keeling over now!! - NVDLfan  188.9 #2032 4:23PM
You go girl!!!! - TinkerSchelle  1429.6 #98 4:27PM
New to MW... We signed up for the family fun run ( I don't run) the rest signed up for the 1/2 marathon in Aug. after seeing all the runners thus weekend. - squirel2012  3.6 #25817 4:33PM
Oh yes, I would love to join in this fun! I've done 5k's & have approached the challenge by way of a walk/run method. Count me in please & thanks for coordinating! - FrankenweenieVelinee  1768.3 #77 4:38PM
How do we sign up? Would love to try the 5k! - MeridaFan  3506.8 #32 4:54PM
Thinking of signing up. I'm not a runner or walker, so I would need to train seriously. - MonLuvsDisney  192.0 #1988 5:23PM
I'm finally going to do the half in August!! I need motivation because 10k is the farthest I've gone so far and I'm always happy to reach the 6mile mark, but I'm committed to double that plus one to get that pretty medal! You can do it Lisa!! Running in the parks is so distracting you forget about the distance! - MarshaMouse  4102.5 #25 5:23PM

I'm like you--10K is a perfect distance for me. I've been a little too comfortable lately though, so I'm looking forward to the physical and mental challenge of a half. πŸ˜ƒ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  569.8 #320 6:03PM
Me too! Plus that medal would be so rewarding - MarshaMouse  4102.5 #25 6:38PM
Ok ladies, I will have to throw myself in with you for the half. We can hold each other up. - MoonWillow  381.1 #538 8:52PM
I'll be there too! The most I've run is a 10k and its been awhile, but I don't care. A half marathon is on my bucket list and there's no better place to fulfill that than at Disneyland! - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  646.8 #272 12:48PM
^That's kinda what I'm thinking^ :) - MoonWillow  381.1 #538 2:28PM
This post is motivation for me! We won't be able to make it in August but because of all the posts about the run I am going to sign up for a 5 k here in Phoenix in March. I am not a runner, but I figure if I have to get ready by March it will get me going:) Thanks for the inspiration MW! - brealover  298.0 #847 5:31PM
Are you doing the neon run? I'm also in AZ - luvmygreenarmyman  288.2 #905 9:22PM
No I am doing the nun run sorry just saw your response the neon run looks fun! All this rain is killing my running schedule:( - brealover  298.0 #847 6:04PM
RCmom, I am right there with you! I am due to have foot surgery in March and I am praying that I will be able to do this. I have never done a marathon and I am thinking this might be a great goal. :) If not this one then at least the next one! - MissyluvsDisneyland  362.0 #578 5:40PM
Confirmed! I am in for the 10k. Can APs register now or do we need to wait? Oh and I have the best husband in the world! - LaPearleNoir  1389.8 #103 5:53PM
You can register now! I have a pretty great one too! πŸ˜‰ - RCmom  5229.2 #16 6:04PM
I don't see where to register now. RunDisney website shows Tuesday at 9am. - HalfCaff  426.6 #461 6:09PM
Where do you register? - LaPearleNoir  1389.8 #103 6:36PM
Just figured out the AP early site: http://di.sn/j8B - AZDisney  610.3 #296 9:01PM
Thanks. All signed up. I can't back out now.😏 - HalfCaff  426.6 #461 6:26PM
Very inspirational....I'll have to think about it though...hmmm - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 6:12PM
You can do it! - LaPearleNoir  1389.8 #103 6:36PM
Yes yes yes yes, do it!! - MarshaMouse  4102.5 #25 6:37PM
I wish I could! I'm attempting to get into running and so far I love it, but I just can't afford to run a Disney race yet. My goal is to run the Tinkerbell half next February! Good luck with your race, I know you can do it! - BelleintheTARDIS  258.8 #1179 6:38PM
I want to do it, - Fairygodmother714-xCM  407.2 #496 7:12PM
We are going to do the 5K. Me, the hubby, and daughter. This is our first too. Downloading some apps to train. Gotta figure out how to register now with an AP. - AZDisney  610.3 #296 7:46PM
Yeah!! Our family's first too!😁 - RCmom  5229.2 #16 8:10PM
Here is the early AP registration: http://di.sn/j8B. Just registered! - AZDisney  610.3 #296 9:03PM
My sister is running the 1/2 tomorrow and she inspired me to sign up for thw 10k in August. I DO NOT run at all. I started training last week, she made a workout plan for me I am super excited! - ILoveDL  59.9 #4162 7:57PM
Don't forget chub 33, where we help and encourage others thru their training of the 5k, 10k, and the half. - VfxGenie  1531.8 #90 8:20PM
Count me in, I have a long road ahead of me, but I know I can do it! - suzeego  3.0 #37304 9:49PM
Tuesday I will be signing up for the half. It's been awhile since I've ran, but once I start, my body remembers that I used to do it a lot. I'm excited for it! - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  646.8 #272 10:53PM
Wow! I just went through and read all these comments! So much commitment to health, exercise, etc! This is great! I'm so excited for us all to get started!! - RCmom  5229.2 #16 3:39PM
Count me in for my first 1/2! Going to register now, thanks for the reminder! - SneakyStella  321.9 #718 4:01PM
Not sure which one i should do.... - LaPearleNoir  1389.8 #103 4:52PM
I see you're doing the 10k! Yay! - SneakyStella  321.9 #718 5:45PM
I want to try the 10k but I'm not a runner at all. I may just try the 5k to start :) - TinkerBelle  215.9 #1695 4:29PM
I'm committed to running in the next Tinkerbell half (2014). I am 4 weeks into my training program and have given myself a year to train for the 13.1 miles. I was so inspired by all the pictures from today and it only strengthened my commitment! - princessSue  267.6 #1101 4:49PM
Decided to do the 5k in August, but will probably be walking. Will be doing the 5k with my daughter. I'm so much older than most of you, so hope I can do it, but I'm kind of excited about it. Thanks RCmom! - snowwannab  717.8 #231 4:50PM
If you have an iPhone I recommend downloading the Nike + running app. It keeps track of your progress, talks to while your running, gives words of encouragement, and you can keep track of friends to monitor their progress and compete with them. I think it's a well put together app, and can help provide the motivation you're seeking. - stratdad  291.7 #885 5:07PM
Agree! - MarshaMouse  4102.5 #25 5:08PM
I will definitely be getting the app! Thanks for the recommendation! - RCmom  5229.2 #16 6:00PM
I'd love to do it it august too. I need plenty of motivation myself. We can motivate each other!! - Superspacemountainfan  82.8 #3701 5:42PM
I am going to join in on the 5K I believe! It's going to take some motivation, but I think it'll be more than worth it :) It just looks like so much fun!! - KylaShea  632.7 #284 6:06PM
I will be there doing my second half marathon. Oh btw I wasn't a runner until I started training. I totally agree about the Nike app it's great. - BeastlovesBeauty  210.0 #1784 6:09PM
Can we talk about costumes now? :) - AZDisney  610.3 #296 6:35PM
Glad I'm not the only one thinking about that!😁 - RCmom  5229.2 #16 7:14PM
Ive got mine picked out already. Belle in her blue dress. The apron will come in handy to hold my gu, etc. Look on pinterest. Theres lots of ideas there. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  646.8 #272 8:56PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unForecast for week of Monday, March 9, 2015:

Park Hours: DL: 9am-10pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday-Sunday). DCA: 9am-9pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-10pm (Friday-Sunday). 

Taste Pilots Grill in DCA will reopen as Smokejumpers Grill on March 13 as apart of the new-themed area, Grizzly Air Field. 

Attraction Closures: Critter Country (opens 4/3), Fortuosity Jewelry Shop (opens 3/13), Magic Eye Theater (TBD), Matterhorn (opens 5/16), Peter Pan (opens 5/8), Snow White Grotto (opens 5/1), Starcade (TBD), Soarin over California (opens 5/15), Grizzly River Run (opens 3/20), Luigi's Flying Tires (2016), World of Color (TBD). 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: This week is the unofficial start of the Spring Break crowds, so expect the parks to be a little more crowded than normal. Also with only one showing of Fantasmic during the week, expect FPs for the show to go quickly along with it being crowded around the Rivers of America close to showtime. Throughout the week, expect CIs to be in the high 60s to low 80s for Disneyland Park and in the low 70s to low 80s for DCA. 

Have a great week!
