Is there any better place to live than Mickey's backyard?

Thank you all so much for the encouragement! I think I'll keep you all around!

I finished my first ever 20 minute run this morning - it was tough, but I did it, and I feel GREAT!!!

I CAN do this!!!

Just a note on the shirts and the sizes. I did the 5k on August 1, 2012 with my sister in law (we got the certificate, bib and Mickey medal). We went to purchase the shirt immediately after the race and all they had were XLs and XXLs so we were disappointed but bought the XLs anyway (there were still plenty of people still racing). We even asked the girl to check in the back and she reported they had no other sizes. I decided to go to the area where they sold the shirts later in the day out of curiosity to see if they put any more shirts out.And what do you know, the rack now had larges (although no mediums or smalls). I told my sister in law and we went back and exchanged our XLs for larges. Although they were still big, at least they weren't as big as they would have been if we kept the XLs. So my recommendation is to check back later because they might restock the rack for the next day's cruise.

Is it possible to buy the shirts BEFORE the race start?

I seem to recall someone posting that they had done just that. I'm planning on asking DH to buy them while I run.

I guess it depends. When we did the race, we were taken right to the start, shown the route map and told to leave our bags with the cruise staff girl in front of the map. The race began very quickly after that for us so we did not have time to buy the shirts before the race. But I am not sure if this is true for other people doing the race on other cruise stops in Castaway Cay. If you have someone who will be waiting at the finish for you, they can easily pick up the shirt while you are doing the race since the shirts are sold at the area close to the finish line. We didn't have anybody waiting for us as we were meeting the rest of our family on the beach when we were finished.

I'll be happy with any of those. I last ran it back before they had shirts or bibs or medals. Or a timing clock.

Yes you can buy them before. They don't ask you if you actually ran to get them. Anyone can buy them.

You won't find that activity listed anywhere. Don't worry, it'll be no problem to sign up at guest services once onboard.

Depending on time of year, be forewarned: The course is really very hot and dry, so you might want to double up on fluids that morning and wear a hat of some kind. I mean it's HOT. I like to run in the heat, but that 5K is really, well, I think you get the idea.

Hope you have an awesome cruise!

The night before, they will announce a place to meet up in the morning. Our meeting place was the pub. Two CMs took our names and room #'s, and explained the route. We all walked together to the start point, and they started. It isn't a race per-se, but they do have a clock running (your time isnt recorded.) All participants got a Mickey medal, and a few days later, we got a magical moments certificate delivered to our stateroom.
It is pretty informal, but I enjoyed it. I hope this helps. Good luck!
