I'd do it now maybe, after having done a race, but for my first race, having it be a Disney one was really more in my comfort zone. but honestly I like the pacing of my half, I liked being out there a long time and I don't really want to run up and down major hills at my townships 5k at 7am. The wine and dine for me, was perfect.

Opposite of you I like running but im not that huge on racing. I run because I enjoy how I feel, I like being alone with my thoughts and I actually mostly do it because I'm still working out some old injury rehab. (which is another reason I avoided some local races this year because of all their hills).
Excuse me? If it it so personal you should not be posting it online. If you don't like racing that is fine, it is not a requirement for anyone. But don't complain that other racers are too fast. All I was saying is that before people say "I'm too slow", they should get out and watch a local race or two. I'm not talking the Boston Marathon, I'm talking your local fun runs.

And I am a little surprised that they run races on major hills there. I live in Hill Country and most races around here are run on pretty flat land.
