Today, it begins. Training for the Wine and Dine... November 2014 or BUST!! πŸƒ

You go girl! πŸƒGood luck with the training. - disneycm  726.6 #12 3:11AM
That looks pretty fun, run through 3 parks. Is this a full marathon run? Good luck, I'm sure u can do it. - TinkTinkTink  266.3 #34 3:34AM
Just a half - mrsincredible  1339.2 #4 4:22AM
Not JUST a half! A half is AWESOME!! ;) - BagGal  345.2 #26 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  1455.3 #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  266.3 #34 10:37AM
You can always start with a 5k or 10k! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1455.3 #3 10:41AM
Great article, Tiffany!! - mrsincredible  1339.2 #4 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  1339.2 #4 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  266.3 #34 11:25AM
Great blog article Tiffany! - jacdanfan  12370.6 #6 9:17PM
Good luck Magster!! I've got my running shoes on and I'm heading out the door myself! πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Š You can do it!!!! Go, go, go!!! - BagGal  345.2 #26 3:36AM
First day of training complete at 5::0 this am!! Following Jeff Galloway's program for beginner runners. πŸ‘ - mrsincredible  1339.2 #4 4:23AM
5:30* - mrsincredible  1339.2 #4 4:23AM
Awesome!! Way to go!!!!! I go at 5:30 too. It's the only way I will get it done. πŸ‘Š - BagGal  345.2 #26 6:48AM
Good luck - mikesbabygirl711  14.0 #210 3:41AM
Good luck Maggie!! You'll do greatπŸ˜ƒ - Schramke  705.4 #13 4:23AM
Good luck Maggie. I'll be cheering you on! - DizneyGirl  1010.0 #8 4:23AM
You go girl I want to do that one day too - Tazhalo  72.8 #90 5:04AM
That's great! You are already 10 months ahead of schedule. You can do this! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1455.3 #3 5:34AM
From couch to half, I figure I better get a good head start!! lol - mrsincredible  1339.2 #4 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  1455.3 #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  1339.2 #4 11:09AM
Good for you! We will all be cheering you on. - Ariel42  262.9 #35 5:58AM
You can do it !!!!! Pixie dust !!!!!!!!!' - skcanfield  589.2 #14 6:12AM
You can do it! - goofygal  11972.0 #7 6:27AM
Congrats! It will be worth the effort. Cheering you on!! - jacdanfan  12370.6 #6 6:29AM
That's so awesome! Good luck!! - kayxobelle  231.5 #40 7:07AM
I have a friend that ran/walked in it 2 years ago. She said it was awesome!! - leveretttltl  89.6 #79 8:13AM
I just know it will be!! - mrsincredible  1339.2 #4 10:38AM
Welcome to The club - 5disneylovers  1200.4 #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  1175.2 #7 9:18AM
Walk/Run! I've been told just about anyone can finish if they train properly! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1455.3 #3 9:33AM
So come on you can do it - 5disneylovers  1200.4 #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  1339.2 #4 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  1339.2 #4 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  569.4 #15 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  1339.2 #4 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  1455.3 #3 2:56PM
Good tip!! - mrsincredible  1339.2 #4 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 #5 6:57PM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - mrsincredible  1339.2 #4 2:49AM
More power to you! I know you can do it and there is no better place to do it. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #640 9:23PM
