Marathon Weekend 2016

I know super early but for the first time since 2007 I am not signing up for marathon weekend 2015. However, I have set my sights on Dopey for 2016. It will be a month before I turn 50 so I think the timing is perfect!

Anyone other then me planning that far ahead?

I am not too far off from you! I did sign up for the half in 2015...this past January I did the Dopey and the year before that the Goofy...and the year prior the half.
I signed up for the half because I was thinking I really did not want to go thru the ritualistic training that I did for the Goofy and Dopey. A lot of time was spent on training and getting ready...during a busy time of year. I thought to myself...I don't want to do that this year. I have a feeling tho...I will be sorry...and that when January comes I will be wishing I was doing the Goofy at least...(which part of me is sorry I didn't sign up for the Goofy)
I was then thinking of the following year...2016....I , as you will be turning 50...in fact my birthday is January 9th so it always falls on or around marathon weekend. During that weekend I am almost very certain I will back doing the Dopey or at least the Goofy...
So you are not alone in thinking that. For me...I will probably appreciate my own efforts of training and miss it this year...training for the Dopey/Goofy...

I am planning for 2016. I ran the marathon in 2013 and after it my husband placed a no Disney for three years on my family which included the races. So for three years I have non Disney vacations and races. 2016 my ban is up and I am hoping to do Dopey. Even though I have no Disney races planned I have enjoyed reading last years runners thoughts on training and running dopey. Looking forward to doing the same this year.

Looking at '16 also! Definitely for the Marathon possibly for Goofy? That's a decision I have to make when registration comes around next year. But I've been eying trying out Goofy for a while. But not sure if I will try it in '16 or '17 for the Donald anniversary medal.

When I look at a thread that talks about the year 2016...I think...Wow that is so far off from now.
But time flies.

When I was on these boards in 2012 we were talking about the weekend of 2013 and there were people on the board talking about the year 2014...They would post how they would miss out on 2013 marathon weekend but would be there in 2014...and I thought...Wow that is so far off from now. I don' t know what happened since then because now both of those moments have passed.

So planning ahead...esp when it comes to Disney is good.

As for the Goofy...if you want to do it then go for it.

For 2015 I will run the 5K, 10K and 1/2 marathon. If all goes well then I have my goal set to do the Dopey in 2016.

That is actually what I wanted to do for 2015....what you are doing....but at 6pm on sign up day the only one of those races still available (and almost sold out) was the half.
However my guess for me is that in 2016 I will be back to the Dopey...

Lesson learned....sign up for the races the moment registration opens.

Sorry all didn't get any alerts that I had responses.

I am totally bummed about not doing marathon weekend 2015 but just can't swing the January holidays next year.

It is along way off but for me who is almost totally a walker, I will have the time to build my base, lose some weight and be able to run/walk Dopey 2016.

I am doing C25K right now on my TM and will move it to the road and do it again, I find the TM so much easier to run on then the road. I plan to build slowly and hope to avoid injury.

How is everyone else doing?
