Just signed my husband and I up for the Disneyland 10K in August! And I'm kinda freaking out!! I'm so excited about it, but I haven't done a run since my teens! πŸ˜‚ I guess it's time to get training (is that enough time?😳) and figure out my shin splint prone legs.😁 If I can do this well, I'm going to be over the moon, I really need to do this! Thank you to everyone who posted this weekend, it inspired me to get moving more with a race goal!! πŸŽ‰πŸ˜ƒ (still a little freaked out though, haha)

Oh can you register without paying? I wanna do the 10k too. - madsdad  1868.2 #92 2:54PM
You've taken the first step! 4 months ago I started running (which I hadn't done in 20 years). Trust me if you set a training plan and keep to it you'll do great! Ease into it and remember walking is great training too. Doing both the 5k and half this weekend I saw people of all ages and abilities. I'm looking forward to hearing about you're progress! - NikkiMickey  1686.3 #99 2:57PM
Good for you to get signed up!! I had bad shin splints until I had shoes with better arch support...head to a running store to get your feet evaluated and buy some good shoes. - Linzee  1188.1 #146 3:04PM
Thank you! I'll have to do this soon! 😊 - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 4:58PM
Yes, go to a specialty store and get fitted for the right kind of shoe and tell them about your shin splints--you might even consider custom insoles. Be sure you run the race in the shoes you've trained in. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 5:05PM
Way to go SIC! I hear ya on the shin splints! I wear NikeAirMax, and find that it really helps. When I run on the treadmill I NEVER get them. Shin splints stink!!!! We are going to sign up for the 10K too, maybe we will see you there! - 7mouskedoodles  371.6 #613 3:14PM
Awesome! Thanks so much!! I'll look into those! 😊 - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 5:02PM
I don't know thing one about running training, but I am sure you will do well. You're very determined, which is a great deal of what it will take. Please keep us up to date on how you're doing. You have more guts than I do. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 3:19PM
I signed my husband and myself up for the 10k in August too! I am not a runner at all, but I am going to do my best. Good luck! - goofymom2boys  1502.2 #113 3:49PM
Run a minute, walk a minute is a good starting point - CaptnSparrow  679.5 #295 5:06PM
You have plenty of time to train. The hardest part is making the commitment to do it. Good for you and I know you will accomplish what you've set your mind to do. - LilSterner  5455.2 #20 5:08PM
I'm going to have to do this as well. - RadioMaverick  1175.2 #149 5:12PM
You have six months that is more than enough. I have a great training program for all distances which is a program I received from the training group of LAPD, I can find it, either send it to you, or, post it on my mousetopia, I am still trying to post some other stuff there so it might take me a day or two! It helped me with distances of 3 to 9 miles but goes up to 26 miles, and it really helps keep you interested in training. I used to train people for some races and the main thing is to keep the training fun, interesting, do-able for your level, and go to go out even when you can find the excuse not too!! I hope you all do great, I am trying to find out if I am allowed to at least walk it if not run, I want to do these so bad!! - secretagentangel  4658.3 #28 5:40PM
plus don't we still have that club on here for losing weight, people could post their training joys and hardships there to help others stay motivated too! - secretagentangel  4658.3 #28 5:42PM
How exciting!! I have no advice as I've never run a race of any kind lol...but I know you'll do awesome!! 😊 - MinnieMousewife  914.1 #201 5:41PM
I did the half this weekend with little training and finished( beat the bus!!!). Even though my body hates me today, I think I'll do it again with training next year. - Ohana  215.9 #1785 5:55PM
I have a training program also by he guy who does rundisney. Send me your email and I can send it to you. That is what I'm going to use the next time around and make time to do it - Ohana  215.9 #1785 5:57PM
