Now to keep training, training, training!
The race is at night, so chances are Disney won't allow/discourage spectators from cheering from along most of the course, as with the Wine and Dine.

A villains theme would R-O-C-K!!!!!!!!

Looks like another Dolphin hotel stay for me! And the walk to the start (presuming it's at HS like the 13K) is a perfect warm-up.

I know I'll stay in the Boardwalk area but not sure if I do Swan/Dolphin vs. Beach Club vs. trying Boardwalk for the 1st time. I'll just have to see what the prices for everything turn out to be. And I'm trying to get some girlfriends to come so I can share the cost!

Awesome! The race is cheaper than expected at $90, and the Hollywood Bash included for all race registrants? AWESOME! And at $44 for the Hollywood Bash for my family, this is sounding like a good deal to me. I can't wait!

Can someone please post the link to the 2012 Wine & Dine Half Marathon thread, because for some reason I cannot seem to find it.

Thanks!

I expect to get my federal returns back next week, so short answer. Yes.
ToT 10M & 5K. DL ½ & 5K. And as soon as it opens Wine & Dine ½ & 5K.

Then it will be saving a bit to pay to be Dopey for Marathon Weekend 2013.

Wow, that's a full calendar! I keep waiting and expecting to get the urge to do a full, but it just hasn't happened yet. I've watched my BF train for 2 now and I just can't wrap my head around doing that kind of mileage every.single.weekend for training. Maybe someday!

I'll be signing up for ToT the day it opens too. Tink and ToT are looking to be the only Disney races for 2012 for me...would have been W&D if they hadn't changed the dates...still bummed about that. The BF wants to try something different this year instead of running DL a 4th time...and I for some reason didn't like the DL half so much and didn't care to do it again either. I'm planning on Tink and Princess for 2013 though...and maybe the W&D or ToT again!

If I would have been in a better mind set, I'd be doing the Princess. But I can't justify almost $600 on airfare for a weekend. (That would make a perfect grand slam for me and runDisney this year...)

Next year is the 20th anniversary of the Mickey Marathon. I got Donald's special medal for the 15th, why not nab the special 20th medal too?

That's a great excuse to do that race! I'm hoping for a 5th year medal at the Princess in 2013

That is an impressive amount of Disney races.

The Royal Family 5K will be my first race...ever...do you think they would still have the party tickets available then? I thought of registering at the expo but don't want to risk not being able to have my family with me at the end of the race.

I just started running. We were planning to be at WDW during this time anyway and I am thinking about signing up for the 5k or possibly shooting for the 10 miler. Are the resorts listed on the runDisney site the host hotels? Is the cost of the Hollywood Bash really included in the registtration fee for the 10 miler? How soon do these races fill up? I'm not quite ready to commit yet.
