Are we all 40?? I'm feeling more and more on this thread at home everytime I read that

I'm turning 40 in 2013 too! Figured it was as good of year as any to do my Coast 2 Coast!

And a good year to dress up and be silly!

oh, I like the idea of a roll call!

41 here, I've been running consistently for 4 years or so. Under my belt race-wise are 7 halfs (or is it halves? LOL), a couple of Warrior Dashes, an annual 5 miler turkey trot, and a handful of 5Ks.

5 years ago if you would have told me that I'd be typing that paragraph I would have thought you were insane...so if you're a new runner and question your abilities - you can do it!!!

Uh oh, only 36, can I still join you


I just started running in January after some preschool moms talked me into running a marathon relay with them. I ran that in May, then hung up my shoes for two months until my husband suggested I run the PHM. I ran my first 10k on Sunday. While I can't say I m addicted, I love how I feel after a good run. I need some good running shoes and then I may be in love.

I also just signed up for my second half marathon in May 2013, I will be running that with my dad who will be 74 and only started running about 8 years ago.

34 here. Live in NJ.
I started running in August again after not running for about (cough) (cough) 9 years.
I've only run 3- 5k's so far in my life- 1 was all those years ago and the last two within the past month!

Turning 40 in 2013 -- along with many of you!

I will be alone, and in the Race Retreat as well. I can't wait to meet all of you -- and see all the characters in the tent!: I am a true Disney character stalker!!! My husband laughs and says, "You know it's a 16 year old kid in a costume, right?!?" Party pooper!

Love the roll call! I am 36 and have been running semi regularly for the last 6 years. Have done both the Flying Pig and Country Music Full marathons and the Princess 2 years ago with my oldest daughter. This year I am taking my middle daughter to continue the tradition of running a Disney race when they turn 14.

Really looking forward to it! We are staying at All Star Sports. We switched today from camping due to the Disney Visa discount.

Good luck in your training girls!

Hey- here's another question. My husband is going to be on the sidelines at the P1/2. But now I'm thinking- he's going to be all by himself. I'm sure he'll be fine but 3 hours by himself watching people run by...? Could be a boring time for him? We don't have ChEAR Squad... Will he be kept entertained like we will be?

Disney Visa discount?!? I didn't get an email about that! How much is the discount?

Roll call answer...45 here...midlife crisis deciding to do the PHM with no previous running experience! (maybe not midlife crisis but perhaps too much wine? )

2 miles outside this morning and thought I would DIE in the 100% humidity...yes you read that right...100% humidity in San Antonio. Still got what I call a respectable 12:52 per mile. Will do my very, very, very, first 5K on Saturday at Sea World San Antonio (thanks for all the well wishes so far!).

if he plans to move around to see you in more than one spot, he won't be bored! Getting from point to point may be challenging with all the other folks. If he's staying in one spot, he probably still won't get too bored though...at the finish line there will be music and shortly after the start, the race m.c. and characters start to show up and will eventually welcome in the wheelchair racers and winners of the race...then the masses will start to come in and I always found it fun to watch the triumphs and see everyone's costumes...it only took me watching my BF at 2 Disney races to get me thinking I needed to give it a shot...it was a very intoxicating atmosphere!

Thanks! This is helpful to hear it from someone who had been a spectator in the past. I'll give him a map and have him take a walk though he may want to hang at the finish... heck, I want to hang at the finish now!

Am I young on this thread? Woot! I'll take it after spending my days with 18-22 year olds. We were talking about the blizzard of '93 in one of my classes, and the guy sitting next to me said that was the year he was born. I'm 32.

Count me in. I signed up for the race retreat because I am going solo so would totally love some people to eat/hang with.

I'll be running into my 41st birthday at the W&D 1/2. I've been running Disney for about 4 years. Last year was my first PHM though.
