Congrats on the weight loss and the training and commitment to run your 1st half marathon. How exciting! I'll be there running too!

Congratulations! You can do it! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜€ Best of luck to you!  - EvilPrincess  416.3 #584 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  1343.4 #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  32.9 #6047 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. πŸƒπŸ‘ - secretagentangel  8890.6 #11 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!!! - E-Ticket In the Sky  55.0 #4822 8:05PM
And remember that steady and slow is much better than fast but burnt out πŸ‘πŸΌ 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  671.3 #335 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  1343.4 #0 10:34AM

I'll be there. I'm doing DDD & the 5k. 

Awesome!  Did they come with the wings?  I'm finally back on track - with exercising and eating.  Still waiting for the dramatic results though (my new mantra is "slow and steady wins the race").  If I lived closer I'd definitely be in the 5k... - msdizmaui  908.5 #230 4:30PM
Nope, I added the wings. :-) - MXPrincess399  802.6 #260 10:57AM
I'm going to be there! This will be my first half marathon. Your new running shoes look cool. Good luck with your training - disneyland4me  251.0 #1422 10:29PM
Good luck with your first Half. The 2010 Disneyland Half was my first. This will be my 13th!   - MXPrincess399  802.6 #260 10:58AM
I'm running the Dumbo Double Dare again. I had a baby 6 weeks ago so I just started running again this week. I'm so slow now but I'm hoping to be back at my regular pace by then. I love your shoes! - PirateQueenBriezy  345.3 #750 8:21PM

It's Labor Day weekend, and you can sign up for email reminders from the RunDisney website.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  671.3 #335 8:12PM
All sold out, so there go the plans to plan the once a year big vacation around it (awwww, darn).  Of course I've never even made it to the early morning walk around DCA, so I didn't like my chances! - msdizmaui  908.5 #230 3:28PM
Yeah, you really have to plan ahead for the races.  It took us 5 years to get it together for the one last year, lol.  There are other ways, though.  My husband found a travel agent from another message board who had some 10K bibs for Tink, and we bought those in December, months after that race had sold out on RunDisney.  You can also sign up through a charity group, too.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  671.3 #335 11:26AM
Maybe D55CR will know from the travel agent perspective.  - Mrs.mouse  543.6 #420 5:20PM
