The Disneyland 1/2 Marathon in September is 73% full now (or 27% empty, depending on how you look at it). If you're a procrastinator like me, hurry up and register before its all full! ๐Ÿ‘

I'm strongly considering the 5k. I normally don't run at all so that would be a HUGE accomplishment for me!

Hey, run a little,then walk a little... then run a little, then walk a little... baby steps! Plus, you have plenty of time to train! JUST DO IT! You'll be proud after. Next step... the 1/2! 5 years and I'm still wanting to do the 1/2. Next year I will for sure! - DiscoSteve  279.8 #1176 7:25PM
Same here ( I signed up)! I don't run at all but I know I can get through this 5K cos if my mom can survive breast cancer I can survive as well! - iamdugsmaster  878.8 #244 7:31PM
I really think I'm going to register once I get my tax return. I looked into it, and they only require an average of a 16 minute mile, which I could do walking I'm pretty sure. I really want a finisher medallion to commemorate that I actually did something outside of my comfort zone. - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #232 7:31PM
If I can do a half marathon, just about anybody can!! - LilSterner  5828.4 #25 11:14PM
I think I'm going to sign up for the 5k as well. But I want to try to run/jog the whole thing. - MermaidWithShears  1025.8 #218 10:11AM
Jen, the 5K I did a few years ago was what sparked my love for running! Before training for that, I couldn't run 10 feet without getting massive side aches and out of breath. It is the perfect distance to really prepare your body and it won't take over your life training for. :) I'm excited for you! - Melliott  301.2 #1013 10:44AM
Jen, that's my goal too. I thought about it last night and 7 months is plenty of time to train to run 3 miles - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #232 10:49AM
Look into the couch to 5k program. There are apps for it too. It's an excellent training program. - KissDclown  1089.2 #201 11:29AM
โ€walkingโ€ a half marathon at a 16min/mile pace not doable... The average walking pace is well over 20min/mile. If you properly train (to walk or run), it can be done... like Ive said on here last year, its great to encourage people to set goals and reach them but we dont want to be giving running advice that could potentially hurt someone. - michelledork  696.2 #334 11:15PM
When? My brother ruptured his Achilles and had a repair back in may, so he isn't allowed to run until a year has passed. - bluefairy  643.8 #363 6:12PM
I really wanna do the 5k but im so extremely out of shape and I have leg problems so it's only a dream for me /: - oowllovee  225.0 #1799 8:06PM
