SOOO excited!! In less than 2 weeks I run my very 1st half marathon ever!! The training, 70+ lb weight loss in a year will all be worth it when I cross that finish line! I hope to "run" into a few of you there!!

Congratulations! You can do it! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜€ Best of luck to you!  - EvilPrincess  464.3 #559 11:00AM
 and well done for the training and weight loss.  I've tried running every morning this year but I'm useless.  I'm very fit and do lots of exercise, but can't run.  I get out of breath very quickly and my legs just don't seem interested.  My friends say I'm probably not breathing properly.  Please tell me it gets easier with time and that it's worth it:-)Oh and good luck - beentoall  1767.0 #0 11:00AM
It does get easier. Try working on different breathing techniques. But like all things - it's not for everyone. :) Keep trying tho! :) - FantasticPoohski  33.0 #6272 3:05PM
Breathe in your nose, out your mouth and don't breathe quickly. Do a count of 2 in and out . Make sure you ALWAYS have music with a beat that will help you move. Do medium strides, not little ones, not long ones. Long ones later as you grow stronger. Use your arms for energy. Small movements like you're bringing a hammer up and down. Only small arm movements, larger when you're sprinting. Do a small jog up a hill once a week. Do a day of small sprints with jog or walk rest , building up each day to longer. Do one day of a long slow run. Drink lots of water and tell yourself how much you love running and getting in stronger shape. Outside jogging will help you more, treadmills are hard mentally but if you have to do treadmill put a tv or photo near you of beautiful scenery. Try that for a couple months, I can give you more after you get to that. Oh, and keep track of your daily jogs, that way you track your progress. ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ‘ - secretagentangel  16088.2 #5 6:55PM
@beentoall secretagentangel has some great advice. As someone who has done cross country for 4 years in high school what I learned from watching the freshman each year, is that it take at least a month or 2 before running becomes a lot more enjoyable. So start off slow and build up your speed. Don't be afraid to walk and run until you feel more comfortable running. As for your breathing, try lying down on you back and put one hand on your chest and one hand on your stomach, your stomach should be the one moving, so make sure you are breathing through your stomach not your chest. That could be one reason, not sure where you are running but you can always see if you have asthma too, I ran for two years before I realized I am allergic to many plants, trees, grasses, ect. So make sure you don't have allergy or exercised induced asthma. Hope this helps!!! - ETicket_In_the_Sky  56.4 #4919 8:05PM
And remember that steady and slow is much better than fast but burnt out ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ everyone works a little differently.  I started running in high school, but before that, I always played sports that required quick movement and sprints (gymnastics, volleyball,and others).  After a month or so of trying to focus on distance, I realized that I needed to pace myself and go much slower--I was trying to run way too fast, but couldn't sustain it for more than a few minutes and would start walking.  Once I learned to slow my pace, and focus on endurance, it got much easier.  Then, I began increasing my pace more slowly.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  724.6 #334 8:51PM
Thank you all for your advice.  I'll keep at it and try listening to music and watch my breathing.  Thanks again:-) FantasticPoohski, secretagentangel -ticketE-Ticket In the Sky-Spoonful_O_Sugar - beentoall  1767.0 #0 10:34AM
Congrats on the weight loss and the training and commitment to run your 1st half marathon. How exciting! I'll be there running too! - NikkiMickey  1686.3 #125 7:35PM
Congratulations!!! Running is such a rewarding sport it helps with both you health and happiness!!! Hope you have a great 1st half marathon, one of my favorite distances to run!!! I will be doing the 10k because of my shin splints. Good luck!!! - ETicket_In_the_Sky  56.4 #4919 7:48PM

I am madly in love with Paint the night. Sunday was my first time seeing it and I am hoping and wishing they keep it in DL for years to come!!!

It is pretty amazing...I find myself singing the parade song and dancing around to it all the time. I'm with you in hoping it stays around for awhile. - DarthTinkerbell  1690.6 #124 10:44AM

Hi there!! I have tried reaching out to Disney and have been on hold, also the chat feature is down (they must be super busy spreading pixie dust and magic!!) But I was wondering if you AP holders can tell me - I hear there is a discount for renewing. What is the discount? Thank you kindly for any tips/answers you can pass on! TGIF!

$40 for Deluxe. $60 for premium. Less for the other two. Renew within 40 days of when your pass expires. And renew before it expires.  - MacaronMerida  4756.7 #39 4:01PM
So, $509 for Deluxe. $719 for Premium. Divide by 12 to come up with your monthly payment.ย  - MacaronMerida  4756.7 #39 4:02PM
Thank you MeridaFan!!! I apreciate the info! - FantasticPoohski  33.0 #6272 4:03PM
I just renewed two of ours. Which is how I know this. ๐Ÿ˜‚ - MacaronMerida  4756.7 #39 4:03PM
HAHA ok, great - thank you so much for the info. I truly appreciate it! - FantasticPoohski  33.0 #6272 4:06PM
That's if you live in CA & get the option for monthly payments, unless you meant you have 12 passes but you're not from UT so I doubt that - UTDISNEYFAMILY  3451.6 #54 4:14PM
MeridaFan - UTDISNEYFAMILY  3451.6 #54 8:05AM
UTDISNEYFAMILY But, anybody who is anybody lives in California, right?  ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. I know she (he?) said they are on the payment plan. So this fits that situation. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป - MacaronMerida  4756.7 #39 3:38PM
Wait!! What you can only do the monthly payments if you live in California? ๐Ÿ˜ซSad day. - DisneyIsMagical  133.1 #3183 7:49PM
Yes lol I (she) love in CA!! Lol thank you all for the help!! - FantasticPoohski  33.0 #6272 8:46AM
I think the discount is $20.  - BibbidiBobbidiMe  337.4 #836 3:54PM
Oh ok - would you happen to know if it is $20 off a next payment? Or $20 off each payment for renewing? - FantasticPoohski  33.0 #6272 3:56PM
And thank you for your help! - FantasticPoohski  33.0 #6272 3:56PM
$20 total off of the AP. - sawman911  5237.8 #32 4:42PM
It depends on the pass. When you renew BEFORE the expiration it's between $20-$80 ( I think).  If you do it after the expiration then they no longer give the discount. - DLKenCA  3779.0 #50 3:56PM
Thank you!!! Mine is Deluxe and i am also on the payment plan - FantasticPoohski  33.0 #6272 3:58PM
That one is $40 off. - sawman911  5237.8 #32 4:43PM
I have the monthly payment plan and it is a Deluxe. - FantasticPoohski  33.0 #6272 3:58PM
It's $40 off the total price (for Deluxe), not the monthly payment. - DisneyHeidi09  482.2 #523 9:59AM

hi fellow MW'ers... Planning a trip on Dec and my brother is not small. so wondering if anyone who is a bit bigger than average has been able to ride screaming with no problem.. he is afraid the harness that holds u in won't fit.

I'm 300lbs and fit in all the popular rides. The only ones that are challenging are the silly symphony swings (chest-wise the bar won't fit over me) and like secretagentangel said, some rides are difficult to shimmy out of. Space Mtn, Splash Mtn, Matterhorn, Indy, and Screaming, for example, take a couple extra seconds to climb out of if you're larger like me. Just give the person trying to rush you out so they can get in the stink eye ๐Ÿ‘€ - Polaris  35.5 #6047 9:09PM
So without being rude and asking how much he weighs, I can say that being over 200lbs we do just fine on all rides... - FoolishMortal138  816.6 #284 1:05PM
if he is larger, he will have trouble ย getting off some attractions as my sister did, (plus she was not used to walking so much) so I just blocked her from view of others when she was getting off and the CM's helped her out. ย then ย just walked with her to exit like no big deal to spare her any embarrassment. ย  so when leaving a car or train or whatever, just stand there and give him a second, he will be ok. hope that helps.. ย she felt really bad and I will say you should avoid the canoes, they are very hard to get out of and you notice if you are the only one in your row. :) - secretagentangel  16088.2 #5 8:48PM
