suffered through my 18 miler on Saturday. A little rough, but got it done.

When the runner's high engulfed me after the run, I was reading the Dis-boards and saw that they had re-opened registration for the TINK at the lowest cost.

What else is a boy to do but sign up for another 13.1 miles after running 39.3 the weekend before.

Now I just have to figure out what to wear.
Was thinking that running as Hook would be fun. But the crocodile would be cool too. HAHAHA

This isn't quite in the same class as the other posts, but I've decided to run the Castaway Cay 5K while I'm on a Disney cruise with my family this June. Way back when, I ran cross country in high school, but I haven't run more than 2 miles in a long time. Right now, I could run/walk a 5k, but my goal is to run the entire thing.

I think that it is more about the getting out and doing it than the distance. The Castaway Cay 5K is a fun one. I'm not sure I would be willing to do it in June though. I've done one in May and two in December. Be prepared to sweat more than you normally do. This past October, our plan was to do the 5K on deck 4, on the running track. However, Hurricane Sandy prevented that (and our stop at Castaway Cay) so we worked with Guest Relations and ran/walked one inside the ship. Got some strange looks from Crew Members and fellow guests, but it was a fun experience.

ROFL. Seriously, though, that's incredible. I've never heard of an 18-miler. I'll have to look up the Tink. Is that in Anaheim? Hook would be fun--he's kind of a diva. I can't imagine anyone running in a crocodile costume, though. Maybe not so much crocodile?

18 miler was just one of the training runs for the goofy. Got one more long run coming up. Besides that just focusing on the back to back runs. Did 5 and 9 this weekend and felt good.

Jiminy, which half you doing at WDW?

Oh, I see. Well congratulations anyway! Geez. Is the Goofy 1.5 marathons??? Five miles is my longest run so far, which I was supposed to run this weekend. With finals for my night class looming, though, running has taken a back seat over the past couple of weeks. I'll aim for six miles on my next run.

My dream is to run the WDW Marathon, and I have been noodling on doing the Half for years. I know I won't be ready for the one this January, though, so I'm thinking about doing a different one next year...not sure which. Guess it depends on season and registration availability. Which ones have you done?

The Goofy Challenge is comprised of doing the Donald ½ Marathon on Saturday and the Mickey Full Marathon on Sunday. (You get a bonus medal. More bling!!!!!!)

Doing the Dopey is adding the 5K Fun Run on Friday as well.

Maybe 2014 for me. Had to bow out of 2013.

Dang. That's over 40 miles. Wonder why it's called the Dopey. I think I'll struggle just to get through a Half. Don't worry. Disney will still be there in 2014, when you can try the Dwarves' mine coaster.

My toes are actually getting a bit beaten up from time to time in my sneakers. I'm actually thinking about trying out the Invisible Shoe. It's about as close as I can get to running barefoot without actually running barefoot. Has anyone tried it? What were your thoughts?
