That looks pretty fun, run through 3 parks. Is this a full marathon run? Good luck, I'm sure u can do it. - TinkTinkTink  262.2 #33 3:34AM
Just a half - mrsincredible  1189.6 #5 4:22AM
Not JUST a half! A half is AWESOME!! ;) - BagGal  340.9 #25 6:52AM
I read a great blog post that helps put this in perspective: http://runningatdisney.com/2013/08/22/for-all-the-slow-pokes-out-there/ - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1397.0 #3 9:39AM
Looks like a half is long. Now in scared to train for one lol....eh, still want to do at least one in my life - TinkTinkTink  262.2 #33 10:37AM
You can always start with a 5k or 10k! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1397.0 #3 10:41AM
Great article, Tiffany!! - mrsincredible  1189.6 #5 10:51AM
A quote from Jeff Galloway's book - Running: Getting Started: "Even if you have your doubts, I ask you to believe that you will do this, and get out on the roads, trails, or treadmills of your world, and try. If you do this regularly, in a short time, you will glow inside as you reazlie you are connecting up with all these benefits and more." - mrsincredible  1189.6 #5 11:08AM
I will have to read it when I get a chance. There are a few short runs here in Michigan I will probably do next summer (most are done for winter now) and skywalker wants to do a warrior dash next year too - TinkTinkTink  262.2 #33 11:25AM
Great blog article Tiffany! - jacdanfan  11394.2 #5 9:17PM

That's great! You are already 10 months ahead of schedule. You can do this! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1397.0 #3 5:34AM
From couch to half, I figure I better get a good head start!! lol - mrsincredible  1189.6 #5 7:51AM
Like I have said, I am so glad I started training early! While I have been an avid walker for years, running was brand new to me. It has been a learning process! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1397.0 #3 9:31AM
I think I am most excited (well, not only from actually being able to do it, haha), but that it's a night race through the parks at Christmas time. If that isn't enough motivation for me to train, I don't know what is!! - mrsincredible  1189.6 #5 11:09AM
Good for you! We will all be cheering you on. - Ariel42  262.9 #32 5:58AM

Welcome to The club - 5disneylovers  1152.4 #6 8:27AM
Oh my goodness I missed a lot this week. So proud if you! You will have so much fun after all your hard work of training. I showed my hubby the medals that were posted last week, he said he was going to sign me up! Yea right, I haven't ran in 20+years. I will definitely cheer all if you on though! Happy training!😘 - mmddgp  948.5 #7 9:18AM
Walk/Run! I've been told just about anyone can finish if they train properly! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1397.0 #3 9:33AM
So come on you can do it - 5disneylovers  1152.4 #6 9:40AM
Gayle, if I can do it, you can do it!! Do it with us!! We have more than enough time to properly train. We can do this!! - mrsincredible  1189.6 #5 10:39AM
I just picked up Jeff Galloway's book, "Running: Getting Started", and it has EVERYTHING in there you need to know about how to get started even a running program for beginners. That is the program I started today, and this morning's walk/run wasn't that bad at all, and I am seriously out of shape. His program is definitely achievable for runners of any fitness level. Dream it and you can do it, right?! - mrsincredible  1189.6 #5 10:41AM
Gayle you could so easily do it!!! You could even walk the whole thing at a brisk pace :) I have NEVER been in sports and active. And Maggie is right the Galloway book is awesome and it what my hubby and I swear by!!! - mzdisnee  567.6 #13 11:24AM
Jennifer, I was wondering, I read they have characters at every mile marker... do people actually stop to get their pics with them? And, if so, are there long lines? How do you account for that time? If I know me, I am going to want to take 1000 pictures from mile 1 to the finish line, haha!! - mrsincredible  1189.6 #5 12:04PM
Jennifer will need to confirm, but I think characters are only in the parks. I have heard lines move quickly, but can be very long for popular characters. This is why you will want your time to be comfortably below 16 min/mile! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1397.0 #3 2:56PM
Good tip!! - mrsincredible  1189.6 #5 3:44PM
*Raises beer* Y'all have fun. (This is as good an idea as letting rednecks go to the Olympics in Georgia). If anyone is interested, there's an awesome book called "OC's Guide to Running: BAHAHAHAHA, No" - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #4 6:57PM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - mrsincredible  1189.6 #5 2:49AM
More power to you! I know you can do it and there is no better place to do it. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #605 9:23PM
