Clarification- I'm a half-marathoner. I'm not doing another Disney vacation in 2012, but I'm considering heading down just for a race or two. Haven't decided yet. I'll be running the Richmond half-marathon in November and depending on how that goes, I may consider doing the full at Disney. Also considering the Tower of Terror ten-miler and the Food and Wine half.

My advice to both of you is to sign up for a local race right away. Don't think about training for a half-marathon that's 10 months away. Train for something smaller- a 10k or shorter that's sometime in the next few months. Get a quick success under your belt and have the experience and confidence boost that gives you as you head in to the summer months.

CJ- is Crash doing the full?

I think I just figured out Tim's motivation here. Its all a big Punk. Barry's going to show up to run the race at like 5 am and Tim's going to roll out of bed just in time to watch the finish with a nice hot cup of Nescafe for Barry at the end.

Bravo Tim. I love a good Punk but next time don't be so obvious.

What then Madison will be in her tween years and the teen years are right around the corner, he will need to be here for that so I don't go crazy.

I also think you picked an interesting year to do this. Barry has a brand new baby coming in a few weeks. He can train until then but he may be slightly sleep deprived for a few months. Oh well, he accepted.

Either way, I get another Disney trip out of this. I don't have to get up early to watch the race, do I?
Bambi we plan to rebuild him. We have the technology to make him faster, stronger and better than before.

And no you don't have to be up early. As a matter of fact you should use the start time for those early morning feedings. He has to practice getting up early for the race. Don't you think?

She wants to but it depends on school. Freshman year of college and she is not sure she will be able to take off from school or more importantly time to train. Reserved a 1 BR at the BWV in case she can go. We shall see.

Do you want a rematch with her? Still chuckling over your "DisDad eating Cheetah" post.

I'd love a re-match. The only question is the money. I'd fly down, get a room for a night or two, race, eat, and a day in the parks with the DisDads. I'd be lucky to do that for under $500. Don't know if I can justify that.

Here's your justification...it would cost me four times that...unfortunately, I have to wait for at least 2014...

This sounds like fun! I am hoping to run the Princess half Marathon or the TInkerbell Half in DL next year. I just had knee surgery so I am not able to run for 2-3 months I am trying to sign up for the Wine and Dine 5K at Disney in November (Tim I think it is during your trip you should look into it for practice). My ULTIMATE GOal is to Run the Boston Marathon with the Alzheimer's Association in 2013! Not sure I will be up to snuff by October when they pick the team though. Hoping to get on the Falmouth Road Race team this August for the 7 mile UP HILL run!

My biggest advice, make sure you trim your toe nails, stretch your FEET, and get to a sports store that puts you on a treadmill to get your shoes fitted.

I was a half-marathon rookie until January. I can talk you through some of the rookie mistakes you may make. Anyway- good luck to you both!
Its great that you're here, Chris. We're(Tim) going to need all the help we(Tim) can get!

That's 2 days, 13 hours right? Because I'm pretty sure I can beat that.

You don't have to watch the whole thing. Just the start and the end.

So, Mary I think your idea is great...we can jeer...oops, I mean cheer on the boys. And then we could meet Bambi and the kids which I've been wanting to. Oh, and I guess that means I'll meet Tim too.
Hi Kathy! Great to see you here!
