Congrats! Also just came back from Marathon weekend. My partner ran the full. I was designated 'cheerer'. And hey, I was also up at 2:50am to catch the bus to the Epcot parking lot, so that counts right?

There were so many people! This was our first time at Marathon Weekend and it was sooo much fun.

What was your time, Christopher?

I have to give a disclaimer on my time because my training came to that screeching halt last August due to ligament damage, but I completed the half in 2:51 something, and the full in 6:27 something. Those times gave me something to try and beat for next year, if I decide to go crazy, er goofy, again.

The Tower of Terror 10-Miler is my goal also....

Hi All,

Happy to see there are others on here who are planning on running the Sept race. I'm not a runner, and this will be my first race. So I'm telling EVERYONE I know, family, friends, random strangers I meet on the street..... so that I'll stick to my goal and see this thru. I'm getting really excited.

My goal is to finish w/o getting picked up for not keeping a fast enough pace

Just got back from the Tinkerbell Half and Neverland 5K over the weekend in Disneyland. It was rather fun and most things went pretty well since this was the first time this race and course were done.

There were 12,000 who did the Tink, 920 were men.

It's all about the bling....

Seriously Todd? Only 920 out of 12,000? Less than 8% of the field?

Sometimes with you I can't tell when you are joking - at least on line. That's a pretty interesting statistic though.

Scouts honor. And statistically, there are fewer men, percentage-wise at the Princess Half. I think the 'surge' of males was the draw of a new course and the special inagrual medal. And I am quite certain most of those males would feel quite at home here in this forum.

I've been running in Vibrams of about a year now and love them! Since I started wearing them (after running in running shoes for about 30 years), my knee, shin, and foot problems have pretty much disappeared.

Re: is there enough support, Vibrams and other minimalist shoes have basically *no* arch support. The idea is that you want to run with a mid-foot strike rather than running heel-to-toe. When you run mid-foot, your foot acts as a natural shock absorber, so you actually don't need the padding and support.

Re: toes rubbing and causing blisters, I had some minor blister issues, so I started wearing "toe socks" -- I favor the ones made by Injinshi -- and the rubbing and blistering stopped.

Caveat: as I statistician, I know full well that a sample size of one (namely me) does not constitute compelling evidence. My personal experience with Vibrams has been awesome, but I've also read other people's accounts of how Vibrams absolutely didn't work for them.

So jealous of your Tink bling. I think I have 2 years before I get to run that one.

I missed the Goofy this year because I had to move to Oregon and start a new job on the day after the race, so i just did the half in January.

Plans so far are to do the DLand half on Labor Day this year (that filled up in a blink...WOW) and then next January get that gosh darn Goofy!!!!!

The calendar has Tink the weekend after next year, so I dont think that I will be in any condition to run that race.

Happy running everyone! make it fun and stay healthy!

My partner and I will be signing up this week - looking forward to it. I ran in all of the old Tower of Terror 13Ks. The after party at Hollywood Studios was always fun and I'm looking forward to this year's.

We'll also be doing the Wine & Dine Half this year. I love the January races - but he's not a morning person so its nice to run a half with him at night

My partner and i did our first half marathon this year, the princess half and it was sooo fantastic. We are not fast, by any means, but finished it upright and together. We only started exercising two and 1/2 years ago after many years of bad choices. We are both in our early 40's and not stellar athletes, but we have fun and are now pretty much addicted. Two years ago my partner was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis which i think made her even more determined, my hero !!!! We have signed up for the Twilight Zine 10 miler in September and will definitely do the princess half again. There is nothing like running in Disney...together.

Hi everyone!

I'm pretty new to this board, but I've loved WDW for a long time!

The WDW Half Marathon this January was my first half marathon and first Disney race - and I've become addicted! I bought an annual pass during that visit, so I'm doing the Tower of Terror and the Wine & Dine and I've signed up for the full marathon in January, which will be my first!

Welcome!

I'll be at the ToT and W&D too. My DP even decided he was going to do the full with me this year, I'm probably gonna go Goofy.
