I miss this thread too! At the risk of sounding overly dramatic... I feel kinda homeless.

I knew there was no way I would be signing up for the DL 1/2, but I kinda wanted to get in for the 10k. By the time I had made up my mind it was sold out. Definitely in for the Tink next year again, though. I had soooo much fun, and I am making it my goal to increase my speed and shave 30 minutes off my time!

Are either of you on Facebook? There's a group for NorCal/Bay Area runners that my friend started. The group name is Got the Runs or if I can add you, just PM me

I am feeling very motivated after Tinkerbell. I didn't break any records but I finished which was my goal. I'm feeling more confident and better about myself so I have been good about training again. I'm registered for DDD and I'm planning to register for a bunch of local 10ks in between now and then.

Love the name. I"ll have to check it out. I'm on facebook, but I'm not. I just use it for race pages mostly, like Run Disney or the Nike race, which is only facebook and not website.

Not sure where you are in NorCal, but the Color Run is the 1st weekend in March at Candlestick. Did it last year and it was SOOOO much fun.

Girlies...... if you didn't notice, I changed the title. (Thanks again Sherry!) I also updated the 1st couple of posts for next year. Now we can keep it going until next January!!

So who's in again for next year!?!

I was thinking of maybe splurging next year and staying at PP that way I'm really close, even though the walk from Harbor isn't bad. Although I heard you were able to walk back to Stovall's after the race this year vs. last year. We'll have to see what the prices look like.

And way off topic, but can I just rant about prices in NY. It's complete sticker shock from prices at DL and WDW. I was checking out hotels for marathon weekend just in case and even the HoJos is $250 a night.I found a nice one yesterday and when I went back on the site today, it went up $90 to $315. It's like they figure out it's marathon weekend and they double their prices. Thank god Disney doesn't do that.

I'm in for Tink for next year! I'm also thinking of possibly doing PPH. I'll have to see how funds play out! It would definitely be cheaper if I left the fam at home next year but DD6 might not forgive me!

I'm in for Tink! At least that is my heartfelt wish abd plan! And I'll also stay at PPH or DLH next year. Loved PPH for being so perfectly located for the race. Couldn't have been easier- especially post race. I'll need to share a room- cant afford it solo so hope my friend goes again or I'll have to drum up a roomie!

I'm torn about this race, honestly I am. I love the Tink race, I love the history I have with it now. On the other hand though I am planning to gear up for Goofy in 2015 hopefully (for the 10th anniversary). And I need to get a full under my belt again (in good time) before considering Goofy preferably at least a year out of Goofy. So consider me on the fence right now.

I think I am going to have to wait and see how the rest of this year plays out, because I would love to run Tink again. I just hate that they are keeping the races within a week of each other. I can't do the week turn around.

I'm hoping to be in for next year too and right now I plan to be but I'm a single mom with a daughter with some serious medical issues so I really don't know what next year will bring....right now I'm planning on being there though!

So. I'm currently 100lbs overweight but just had thyroid surgery and am getting my levels under control & just joined a gym to help take off as many of the extra lbs the thyroid so kindly left me with. I don't think in any way, shape or form I will be ready for a 1/2, BUT my bucket list includes doing a 5K so I think I am going to sign up for the Neverland 5K (and kids run) and do my best to get out there next year! Knowing I have almost a year will motivate me to do my best with both weight and running!

I'm in! I'm in! Shooting for Legacy gosh darnit so of course I can't miss it. I seriously need to put the money away for it now so lack of funds don't make me miss out on registration.

I have this concern as well. My goal is to be in such kick booty shape by 2015 that I can do both back to back and it be fine.

I think I'll be able to do the races, but my issue will be having some restraint between the 2 races! I mean--- I'll be at DISNEY Either one means I am hitting the parks hard core. I just can't help myself- commando at it's finest! So that's the rub for me. I'll have to go do goofy, then visit a beach for a couple days rather than stay on site too long. I'd be itching to do too much when my legs will need the rest!

And I'd already write off Tink as the fun run- I mean, after 39+ miles can one really expect to PR?!
