Thanks so much! So excited - I just want to make sure everyone in my party and I can register. Can you register many people at once or do you have to register one at a time (risking that some will be locked out of registering)?

How quickly does the race usually sell out?

Last year was July. The year before, August.

I don't know- I'm hoping I can register two of us together for two races, but I haven't done it before so I really can't say.

I had a setback on my current training, blargh! I got a virus about three weeks ago, and it hung around for a long, LONG time. I wasn't able to run through any of it, because I was just that sick. Yesterday was my first run after starting back, and it felt like I had never run a step before. I was pouring sweat and puffing after about 15 minutes. It wouldn't be such a major deal, but I'm scheduled to do a mud run next weekend, and a color run the week after that. I guess I'm going to be pouding some serious pavement every day this week.

Just stay the course! Your body will catch back up and remember what it's like! You'll be back to normal in no time! Good luck!

Thanks, snelldog! I'm hoping it catches up quickly, because the first two weeks of beginner's running totally suck!lol

Unless you all have Active.com id/log ins, then you will probably need to register each person separately. You should have the option to pay for them all together though.

I cannot fathom a decent reason why/how there would be over 15K entrants registering on the first day. You may not have until July, but it won't fill up like the Dumbo Double Dare or Disneyland Half did.

Hahahaha!

I agree! I stopped running in August due to personal reasons & now I just started re-training. I'm like.. 'dang, I hate this!'

But my body did remember more quickly than I thought it would after a 6 month break. Still have a long way to go to 'catch' up but it's not as bad as it was when I FIRST started running last year. Course we are talking about still being in the 'first 2 mile' stage. I still have 11.1 more to go! Ha!

See, I think getting past that first two is the worst. I'll probably make sure i keep going, because if I have to start over entirely I'd be toss my hands up and say forget it! That was by far the most frustrating part of running to me. Incremental increases after that just seemed to be so much easier.

In training I would agree that the first two miles suck the most.

During the race, I despise the last two the most. I know I should savor the moments and enjoy the surroundings, but I just want to be done. That's my mental hurdle.

Agreed! Last year, by the time we hit the front of DHS and got to that little sidewalk between there and Epcot, I was so aggravated by the lack of space to be able to really run, that I just wanted to be done! But when we came around the side of Soarin'(?) and saw my family cheering me on, I was able to ride that high to to the finish line.
