I want to thank you for your blog. It encouraged me to start running. well run/walk/run. I did my first 5k today. My time was 44 minutes. I was so proud of myself. I am going on the Fantasy May 26. I plan to do the CC5k I will just have to learn to deal with the heat. So far all of my training has been in 30-40 degree temps.

On the 12/18/11 Dream, there were probably 50 runners. We met in the sports bar and walked to the start. There were lots of kids!! There were walkers too, but also many 10Kers who did the course twice. There was a CM at the end calling time. I got a bib number for the race and a certificate in my room after and that was it. Never saw a tshirt for purchase. We did all take a group photo with Goofy we could've purchased. Still glad I did it!

I just had a thought... (though DCL might consider this a "stupid" thought)

They should give away the T-shirt for the top three finishers of the CC5K. The bibs and medals are nice but come on! I won a trophy ("ship on a stick") for movie trivia on a Carnival cruise. Winning a 5k, imho is a much higher accomplishment. A shirt might be nice.

Not that I would win it. I just started training for it and I'm struggling to run 2 miles. But the winners should.

If you are looking for training tips there are tons of programs out there to help you out. Try googling Couch to a 5k this is one of the most popular.

You can also try the galloway method which is what Disney promotes for training for the big races. This is a simple walk/run method that can be used to train for any race.

You don't have to run everyday to train for a 5K.

BEST OF LUCK- You can do it...

I am on week 3 of a Couch to 5K program that I downloaded to my ipod Touch. You can search for c25k in the itunes store and there will be several. Mine is the "5K Runner" app. I start a music playlist and then turn on the app. It will lower the music periodically and say things like "Run Now" or "Walk Now". You slowly build up over eight weeks or so from mostly walking to being able to run for the majority of the exercise period.

It hasn't been a 'walk in the park' but I am looking forward to running the CC5k with my sister and dad - both of whom have run the Januray Half several times. It'll be a real family affair this summer !

Just got off the Fantasy and enjoyed the CC 5K. Even with the heat, I was able to do it in 42 minutes. Back in January, I was at 55 minutes. It was great to have Donald at the finish line.

Is there a time limit to finish the race? I am pretty slow, but would LOVE to do this!

Also, are the tshirts available to be purchased by anyone, or do you have to run the race to get them? When do the shops open?

Also, do you know what the sizes are? I won't fit into a large... yet! Soon I will!

I am going to do the Princess 1/2 marathon in 2013 and I think I would LOVE to do this too. BUT I am just really starting out with my weight loss journey and I don't know if I'll be quite ready to do a 5k in the beginning of July???

Hi Princess Vija

Is there a time limit to finish the race? I am pretty slow, but would LOVE to do this! The CM organizing the event indicated that he was going to be at the finish line until a certain time. (I think it was about 60 minutes.)

Also, are the tshirts available to be purchased by anyone, or do you have to run the race to get them? When do the shops open? Anyone can purchase the tshirts. They are a available where the run starts/finish. The Shops open as soon as the ship start letting people on the island.

Also, do you know what the sizes are? I won't fit into a large... yet! Soon I will!Only small and XXL were available for the Fantasy Maiden Voyage. I am sure as long as you focus on the food intake and exercise in a few months you will fit into a smaller size.

I am going to do the Princess 1/2 marathon in 2013 and I think I would LOVE to do this too. BUT I am just really starting out with my weight loss journey and I don't know if I'll be quite ready to do a 5k in the beginning of July??? Great goal. I am sure you will be ready for July, even if you do not think you are ready. You can always walk it. It is not a race, it is a run.

THanks so much for the info! AND the encouragement! I think I am going to do this! I just have to get my game plan ready to go, so that I can accomplish this new goal of mine.

HOPE you had a GREAT time on the Fantasy. We will be cruising on her very soon!

Wonderful blog - thanks for posting the link here.

I was wondering what time you were back at the ship and cleaned up ready to go? Trying to plan for our July trip and have a fishing excursion planned with my boys. TIA

Did anyone answer the question regarding kids in the kids' club? I looked again and don't think I saw it answered. It hopefully will be my first 5k, and my DH was wanting to do it with me because he is worried about me. We have DS 8 that will not be able to do it too that we don't know what we will do with. If there are no kids' clubs available, I will have to do it by myself while they hang out. Just curious...
