Bummer about your feet, Jess. Hope they are feeling better soon.

Maybe I'll actually get to see you at WDW finally unless you are doing Spring Dash or the Coeur d'Alene Half?

I will probably sign up for the 5K and the full. I don't want to do Goofy again just yet. I'd rather scream team and/or volunteer for the half.

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 actually doubt that I'll be able to take Monday off...especially if I go down Thursday for the 5k on Friday. Most likely, I'll probably 'only' do Goofy and Tink. As for the money...well, that's why they make bonuses ;-)

I'm anticipating the 5k and the 1/2. It'll be my second 1/2 after the Wine and Dine in November. I've been a few times during marathon weekend, which motivated me to do it, so I'm really excited to be a participant!

I started... wow, 1 year ago today with running. I started my plan on 3/22/11. I started with the Couch 2 5K program. I then moved onto a program called Bridge 2 10K and finally went into Hal Higdon's Novice 1/2 Marathon training.

I basically did the C25K program twice. I originally started only on the treadmill. My treadmill-o-doom broke down forcing me to finally go outside and do this training. I found out running on pavement and sidewalks is MUCH different than the treadmill. So I started over at week 3 of the C25k Program after I had gotten to week 7 on the treadmill.

That's not to say that was just 7 weeks, I had re-done weeks during that time period, as I had also not been exercising and was in terrible shape. My first time with C25K, I couldn't even do all of the run segments, I had to walk most of them. So I repeated weeks as I needed to until I was comfortable with progressing onto the next week in the schedule.

I "ran" the 2012 Walt Disney World Half Marathon, in 3:48:49.

If you wish to see more details of my journey, I have a link to my Blog in my signature.

Similar to Kipp, I started running last March/April and trained through until this January, when I participated in the WDW Marathon Weekend. I ran both the 5K and the Half. Before last March, I had never even considered running.

If you want to run the Half in 2013, I believe you can achieve that goal if you work out a good training plan, and take it nice and easy to avoid injury. Definitely get a good book, either by Hal Higdon or John Bingham or Jeff Galloway to help you learn about the various aspects of the sport.

And hang out here on the Disboards. There are wonderful, supportive, and knowledgeable folks here that can help you along your journey.

Have fun!

I'm seriously considering training for the 2013 Full. Did my first half at this year's Princess and LOVED it! I can't wait to run another Disney race. I'll be doing my second half in April, that is if my shin and calf stop hurting. Can't wait to learn more about the full.

Just registered for my first full in October. DH will be doing his first half then too. I am using the Hal Higdon Novice 2 plan to train, will have to change it up for the Goofy though. I know I have read there are Goofy training plans, can someone point me in the right direction for that? Thanks

I think once registration opens they will have plans on the Disney running site. The plans are done through Jeff Galloway. I remember someone talking about 10 and 20 mile Sat. and Sun. runs. Sounds like fun.
