Jan 20, 2013 8:07 PM  Disneyland Talk Land
I've always wanted to try one of the Disney races and after seeing some people, like me, who aren't runners complete the marathons this weekend, has inspire me to give it a go. So if you all don't mind can you please share some helpful tips and advice for a potential first timer? Thanks!

Here's the deal...roughly 7 months ago I was in no way a runner. I weighed 15 pounds heavier, and I drank soda all day every day, and my favorite activity was watching TV. In June I questioned the idea of running the half and I had one single person tell me that I should do it...the next day I joined a gym. First time I ran a mile I almost threw up, then gradually I became better and better. By September I was running 5k's every other day. Couldn't believe it. Within the past 3 months I have ran the 13 over 4 times. I pushed myself every time, and got through it. Not only did I improve health wise, but I improved in every aspect of my life! It made me a better person, and it was something I got to look forward to every week while training! "Those who say they can't have never tried." Yes you have to push yourself, yes you have to put in effort, but I'm telling you, YOU CAN DO IT! Believe in yourself, and don't doubt for a second that you can't do something!! (sorry I'm a cheer coach, haha) Keep in mind I'm not even 5 feet, so if I can do it, YOU CAN! Feel free to DM me anytime! I am more than willing to help out in any way I can! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #286 9:26PM
Ps sooooo excited I saw you this morning at the hotel:) - BooEve123  800.9 #281 9:28PM
πŸ˜‰that was so touching and inspiring. I'm so happy I was able to see your progress. You truly look so healthy and gorgeous, more than you already did - MarshaMouse  5057.9 #35 9:31PM
πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  713.1 #331 9:34PM
Wow! thank you! That's some really good advice; I feel even more inspired to do it. - DisneyDork95  206.2 #2070 9:37PM
You are wonderful. That's all. - madsdad  1868.2 #109 9:42PM
That was very inspirational! Loved reading it, and you should be so proud of yourself! Excellent work! - MacaronMerida  4737.2 #39 9:55PM
You are so awesome and inspiring! - Vegan7LuvsStitch  1057.7 #215 10:01PM
Awe you all are so awesome! This goes to anyone too! Please DM me if you have any questions or just want to share your story! ;) P.S. Cass I am SO happy I saw you this morning! As silly as it may be it really calmed me down. - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #286 10:08PM
You seriously just inspired me! Starting tomorrow I am gonna get off my butt and excercise - sunshinegrl  353.4 #765 10:53PM
Ashley-you are just a doll! So glad your my friend! - TinkerSchelle  2140.1 #91 10:57PM
Very touching Ash. I'm very proud of you. I can sense your passion. Love it!! - RapunzelledColey  147.3 #2930 12:21AM
So sweet of you. You are inspiring, and proved it can be done. I'm too considering running a race and have no experience. I'm hoping I don't give up before I get started. - MonLuvsDisney  192.1 #2257 7:49AM
Wow! Thanks you for sharing your experience. It's tough getting motivated and good to know that it wasn't easy. This is going to give many others the mojo to start a new journey. Very inspiring.. Thanks. - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  1217.0 #177 9:03AM
I'm the same way. As of this past Saturday i'm working out my legs and working on my cardio by riding. Hope to see you on 8/31/13 - MRINFINITI  5.2 #20035 9:16AM
Congrats! Be consistent but forgiving with your training--know that you'll have great days where you experience "runners high," and meh days when you don't want to go out at ALL. Those emotions are all normal, but push through! The mental challenge is often harder than the physical one! Also, take care of your body: lots of water fruits/veggies, lean proteins, whole grains, and healthy fats will make a world of difference, and you'll feel it! Lastly, especially if you're planning on doing a half, go to a specialty store and get fitted for running shoes--don't just buy ones because they're labeled "running" or are on sale: buy them because they'll work with your gait and bone structure. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  713.1 #331 8:44PM
Thank you these are great tips. - DisneyDork95  206.2 #2070 8:57PM
@SOS Great advice! Do they have shoes for just walking or do they suggest a running shoe for that? - Cinderella_Schnooks  3490.8 #52 9:05PM
There are walking shoes available, too. If you go to a good specialty store, like Fleet Feet or Roadrunner Sports, they will look at your feet/bone structure and analyze the way you walk or run (usually on a treadmill). - Spoonful_O_Sugar  713.1 #331 9:10PM
Thank you so much SOS! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3490.8 #52 9:21PM
Yes! Spend the extra money to buy good shoes! I promise they are worth it!! And train in the same ones you will wear on race day! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #286 9:27PM
This is AMAZING advice! Mentally it will kill you if you let it, physically it will make you feel better than ever! When it comes to diet, this is dead on! I'd also like to add that you should stay away from alcohol and soda...even diet. Tea, Water, and Coffee can become your best friends! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #286 10:12PM
Oh yeah, definitely limit alcohol, soda, and artificial sweeteners! They just drag you down. I was just reading an article about how diet sodas are even worse for us than regular ones. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  713.1 #331 8:07AM
Me too! My sights are set in the Disneyland Half. - Pollyanna702  249.9 #1489 8:36PM
Check out the Chubb 33 section lots of runners there. My only advice good pair of shoes mine cost 125 lol and insoles, I'm no pro but have done three now it is mind power and believing on yourself to get to finish - BooEve123  800.9 #281 8:42PM
Oh ok thanks, and I like how you put that last part. I will remember to tell myself it's all in my mind. - DisneyDork95  206.2 #2070 8:56PM
"Mind over matter" is what I try to repeat to myself when I'm struggling and want to stop. And, yes, please join us in the Chub33 land of MW! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  713.1 #331 9:00PM
@Ashleylynn: I enjoyed reading your inspirational story! @DisneyDork95: Congratulations!!! I am no pro, nor have I run a full marathon, but I have run pretty consistently for about 17 years now. My advice to you would be to get a very good pair of running shoes. I like NikeAir Max because they have complete wrap around air cushion. ( good for the joints) And... Don't be afraid to train on the treadmill(not for every run). I think my injuries have been very minimal because the treadmill is easy on the joints. I do most of my runs on the treadmill. Boring you say??? No way! Set your smartphone on the ledge and watch YouTube video mixes of your favorite artist! My fav is Michael Jackson! There are tons of MJ mixes! DM me if you want me to give you some good ones that will make you forget that you are running! And... Take it slow! If it is too hard in the beginning, then slow down. Be patient, because one day soon you will run, and it won't be so hard. You will feel so good! - 7mouskedoodles  371.6 #710 10:31PM
Ok. Thanks for the advice! I actually do listen to music when I work out, it gets me pretty pumped and excited to work out. Lol - DisneyDork95  206.2 #2070 10:37PM
Oh and Congrats to all of you who made it through the finish lines! - DisneyDork95  206.2 #2070 8:09PM
The next one is on my dad's birthday but I think I may just have to do the one after that. - aidensmama  340.3 #806 10:49PM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people.

Get a quick overview of the new features in MouseWait 9 for iOS, our biggest update since 2009! Get the free version here, or upgrade to Platinum here

Just installed the MW app on my new phone yesterday. This will be very helpful for me since I am used to the android version. Thank you. - teapotsandteacups  5445.6 #28 11:41PM
I've had a lot of trouble with platinum version. It seems to "magically" close itself at random times. The most common random closes are: after updating ride or food times, after clicking on a different feature in the app, or immediately after opening. I generally have to re-open it 2-3 times, at which point it stays open until I've made my update, but if I stop using it for more than 5 minutes and go back to it I have to go through the magical closings again. πŸ˜“ - Mouse28  946.2 #239 9:06AM
I never had that issue with the free version.  - Mouse28  946.2 #239 9:06AM
I had the same issues more so in the park  - Plumiegirl  10907.2 #11 5:42PM
Same here  - Melody_CM  39435.7 #2 7:57AM
And I can only load videos from the non platinum MW  - Plumiegirl  10907.2 #11 9:02PM
This was helpful.. But I'm still having an issue posting to pics to the loungeπŸ˜‘ - 1Minnie58  7.9 #14578 10:12AM
I have even worse issues when I load it on my Galaxy S3 !!!LOL - TheHubs  227.9 #1783 8:58PM
