I am going Goofy. DH is doing 5k and half. DD is doing 5k. FIL is doing half. My running coach (also DH's BFF) is doing Dopey. His wife will do the half. Another friend is doing the 5k. I *think* that covers everyone in our group. We are renting a house this time, and leaving for a cruise on Freedom of the Seas immediately after the marathon. <--------be glad none of you are riding in the car with us!

I'm going for the 5K and Half next year. That combo doesn't appear to have any cute character name associated with it... how about Pluto?

I'm probably going Dopey in 2013. Insanely enough!
I want to do the 5k with my kids (the youngest will be in a stroller) and I had already decided on the Goofy.
Not sure what my DH is planning. Probably 5k or half.

I kind of want to do goofy, but I don't want to commit until I see what kind of shape I'm in after I finish my fall marathon. If I'm not injured, and if the race doesn't sell out, and I can make the trip happen with finances/work...count me

I'm going to go at least Goofy...maybe, just maybe Dopey. Part of me figures it'll be a once in a life time shot and I might as well go all in. The other part of me thinks it might be a little overkill because I kind of want to do Tinkerbell in 2013 as well. But really, at that point, what's an extra 3.1 miles?

I guess we'll see!

Registering is almost as exciting as race day for me! I'm such a planner that I get a kick out of trying to organize and figure out which races to do.

And on the movie thing? Yea. It took quite a while Friday night for us to decide what we were going to do. Mostly because I couldn't agree to sitting in a theater for 2 hours...but I am willing to hop on a treadmill for 2 hours on a Sunday morning. Go figure.

After the Princess I went on a cruise. Such a nice reward for finishing the half! Although on the day after the half, I did a 12.5 mile bike tour around Freeport...I guess it's a good thing I wasn't sore!

I really really really to do the 5K. I'm not a runner at all, but running in Disney is enough of a motivator for me. I can't register in April though, as I'm giving birth in June and want to wait a few months after the birth to make sure that the trip is possible. Hopefully it won't fill out super fast. The only thing we'll need to decide is who, between DH and I, will be running, and who will be walking in the stroller division.

Only took me 60.5 years to convince my family that I was truly Dopey and that was in 2011. 2013 will be 3 years in a row of doing so. No better way to start a new year.

I keep going back and forth in my mind about what I want to run during marathon weekend. Part of me wants to do Goofy again, but the more logical part of me knows I should stick with only the marathon. Has anyone done Goofy during a whirlwind trip? I'll have to arrive Friday evening and leave Monday. I'm afraid I'll be a zombie for the rest of the week if I do Goofy, but I'm so torn. I'll spectate the half if I don't run since we'll be at BLT, and I can walk outside to watch. I just can't make up my mind!

My wife and I did our first half marathon at WDW in January, and we plan to be back in 2013. We might just add the 5K to the mix, as well.

2013 WDW Half

Hello Ducks

Signed up for the TOT 10 miler and looking forward to the 2013 Half.

This will be my 2nd Half and 3rd Disney Event. Liz was right after you do one you'll become addicted!! I had a blast on the first one. So exciting!!

I'm staying at Shades Jan 10 - 13

Hoping to walk 13 min. miles.

Last one I did 15 - 16 min miles.

Liz can we get a countdown clock on this thread? Just wondering.

I'm doing Tink after Goofy too! I'm calling it my ode to Disney Parks week. I'm coming home from WDW on Wednesday for laundry and driving down to DL early Friday morning.

I thought the same thing about adding the 5k to Goofy this past January, what's another 3.1 miles? The running wasn't bad, it was that added day of getting up early that did me in. Of course I had a non-running husband that wanted to stay in the parks late, so I wasn't too early to bed most nights. I ran a 1/2 the weekend I got home from Disney, and while my time was my slowest non-disney (AKA non playing/ excessive picture taking) 1/2 to date, I finished without too much trouble. I'm sure you'll be fine with Tink. I wish I had that kind of money to do both next year! I'll be lucky to take monday off after the marathon!

I really want to go Goofy, but it's been a rough time for my feet lately. I'm scared I won't make it through one race, much less two back to back like that. :/
