Would love to do the 5k someday
Everyone has FABULOUS advice & I "second" it all. Something i'd add is that u are out there in the corral EARLY & to stay warm we brought cheap small fleece blankets from Walmart (like $2) & gloves ($1). It's far more cozy than a garbage bag & u can leave off to side when you start-or gloves along the way; they collect & donate. YOU'LL have plenty of time-so get all those special photos taken. Bring $ for the expo on Fri/Sat-good stuff there! Don't feel weird wearing some kind of costume-it's very common (expo even has cute sparkly running skirts & wings etc, I bought green sparkly one from Team Sparkle last year). Remember it'll be dark(ish) a long time so somethibg that lights up is fun too-i wore my Tinker Bell pin from the main street carts. Smile at & hi-five those cheering u on! After, the post race is organized well & is quick & easy to use bag-check. Finally-I've found that if I keep moving that entire day/evening after-I'm not sore the next day. So put that Tinker Bell wing medal on with pride and head into Disneyland. It's the best feeling ever!!🏁✨ - TinkerSchelle  1162.2 #110 8:10PM
This is wonderful! I have realized that if I keep moving and then soak in a hot tub before bed I rarely feel the pain the next day. Thank you!! Can't wait meet you! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #183 9:05PM
I absolutely love uour advice about cheap blankets, gloves that you can just cast aside. You are a smart cookie! Wish I was gonna be there to cheer you all on! - MeridaFanHasNoAP  3189.9 #28 9:54PM
Thanks MF-this is my 9th half so you figure stuff out along the way! Btw-I'm the suckiest half marathoner ever and don't train-so if anyone is scared to try-if I can-you can! You just aren't fast like AshleyLynn!!! 😜 - TinkerSchelle  1162.2 #110 10:00PM
This is great advice. This past Labor Day was my first Disney 1/2 marathon and it was such a great experience. I found it helpful to walk for about an hour after the race, then take a quick nap, and finally venture out into the park for the rest of the day! I felt great after the race and wasn't sore at all. Good luck and have a great time! Wish I would have entered this one too. - PrincessLeia  285.9 #867 12:59PM
Stop at the rare characters if you have time. Enjoy the time through the parks. You will be going backstage and last year at my first race I loved it! Take pics- I just use my phone. Get water and powerade at every stop. Run some, walk some, and sign up for runner trackin so that you know along the course what Disney has your pace registered at. - LilSterner  4336.7 #19 7:12PM
I run with a small belt that is just big enough to carry some salt tablets and gels, I always run the whole thing so you dont want a lot of water on you weighing you down, there are enough water stations where I dont think you will need to carry any with you. - diznymommy84  215.5 #1639 10:37AM
Thank you for this! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #183 3:03PM
I'm walking it. I'm anxious, but excited. - JenAnneWho  300.7 #784 7:59PM
Yay!! You go girl! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #183 9:09PM
