Yes, I signed up for the Glass Slipper Challenge. This will be my first half marathon and I can't wait. Maybe, we could all get together during the Princess weekend. 😊

There was something oddly magical about running through the castle and exiting into snow. But that's about all that was magical with the weather that year!

Had been in the runner's area all of 10 minutes when I dropped a mitten in the porta-pot. Ran the half in snow/sleet and no gloves... Was still an amazing race though!

I was so bummed because I was at work and it sold out by the time I was out I still signed up for the Princess half Marathon though. This will be my third year doing it... I cannot wait!! Going down solo for this one. I would love to meet up with other runners if anyone is interested

I impulse bought the early registration for the Tinkerbell half marathon as well.. My first coast-to-coast challenge year!!! And first Disneyland year for that matter

That's great! I'm really excited but nervous too. Planning the trip doesn't seem as clear cut, and I have a few extra safety considerations too, considering I'm going solo. Where will you be staying?

You'll have a great time! I've done Disney races/trips in FL solo a few times, it's pretty fun to have total control over what you do and see and when you do it!

Have you done Disneyland too? It just seems less easy for some reason in terms of choosing hotels.

I've done WDW and DL solo for races. I don't stay on property at DL due to the cost being prohibitive for a single person (at least to my budget). I like that there is a wide variety of hotels to choose from. Although not all are on par with Disney standards, there may be one that fits your needs better. (Personally, I am a sucker for breakfast included, hence my stays at Quality Inn.)

I'm a sucker for the free breakfast as well!

We haven't decided yet, but we are going to stay on property. I know people say it's not necessary like it is in WDW, but this may be a once in a lifetime trip, so I'd like to experience it all the way! We are trying to decide between GC and DLH. I haven't booked yet though...I was waiting to see if there would be a special rate after registration opens...hopefully that's not a bad idea!

I'm running my first half marathon at the Disneyland Half. Can't believe it's only 8 weeks away. The time has flown by! I got crazy and signed up for Tinker Bell and Princess too. Hopefully I enjoy this!
