I'm in and signed up! This will be my third half marathon but first Disney half. I ran the full disney marathon back in 2012 and decided one marathon was enough. We should have quite the group running it with mixed paces and experience. My DH (who runs a sub 3 hr marathon), my friend and her husband, who runs a few disney races every year, my BIL (his first half), my older sister and her boyfriend (first half). We will be boarding the Disney Dream on Sunday with a group of over 25 people so lots of people to cheer us on!

Sounds like a lot of fun! Are you from West Virginia or an alum of WVU? Just curious about your user name!

You can add me to the list! I am doing the 10K and the 1/2. Looking forward to a meet up and hearing everyone's training schedule. I am doing my first 1/2 in New York in June, and Wine and Dine in November, but made sure I signed up right away for Donald and Minnie. Did not want to miss out

I just registered DW and I for the half! After running the full this year and debating on going Goofy next, I opted for the shorter run. Training for the full was brutal since I work crazy long hours October-mid December. I knew Goofy would be even tougher. Glad to get our registration done before it filled up!

Aha, well this is a better spot for me. I had previously joined what I thought was the "marathon weekend" thread, thinking it was for the whole weekend, but this will be better.

DS and I will do the 5K, the next day he'll do the Mickey Mile, and the following day I'll do the Half. Yikes!

In October I will have done the TOT, so hopefully I'll be prepared for the Half. But right now I feel like the 10 miles is longer than the half!


Is anyone having this same problem? I go to download the half marathon training program on rundisney, but it gives me the marathon program. I click on the marathon training program (that site reacts weirdly with firefox and sometimes I have to click on the link above something to get what I want...but I am using Safari) and I get the marathon. Basically, no training program for the half! Anyone else?

Yep, I see the same thing. Weird. I had already taken the Time Improvement half plan and entered it on my training calendar, so I'm good. I'm sure they'll get it straightened out soon!

I just signed up with my son. He will be 14 in September so this will be his first half. My daughter will be running the Mickey Mile and my husband will be our cheerleader.

DH and I are in! We are 8 weeks in to the C25K program. Running our first 5K in July and plan to do a 10K in October. We are so new to all this and really looking forward to the support here! I already booked the hotel for us. Couldn't quite get dh to agree to the $972 MKV Contemporary CL room so we are booked at the Swolphin.
