I hope it is! I just signed up too, and I need to get on training. I haven't jogged in 2 weeks, need to be more consistant and build up my distance.

Kim3339 and VickiHD - Thanks for the info!!!!! I hope the kids dash goes better at the Disneyland half this year. Keep me posted!

As for training I think I'm going to follow the Jeff Galloway plan that he has posted for Tink. I'm at a 5K distance now. I'm starting to train for a 10K in september that I'm registered for and after I run that I'll transition into Jeff Galloways program to get ready for the half!

I've started jogging in March of this year and have complete a 5K, 10K and have committed to the 2012 Disneyland 1/2 and Wine and Dine 1/2 this year. My 8yo daughter has become very interested in trying to jog as well. I had wanted to do the 1/2 Marathon but think I'm going to sign both of us for the 5K ( I wouldn't have anyone to watch her if I signed up for the 1/2) instead. I think it's important for me to dedicate one of these races to run with her even if it means I miss out on the Tinkerbell 1/2 myself !!

Girls Trip here we come !!

I was going to wait a bit to register for the race, and then I noticed on here everyone mentioning it's 51% full already! So I am signing up today after I get home. I really want to sign up for the 5k, but I am worried about whether I will be able to fly in early enough on friday to pick up my packet. Will have to register for each seperately, I guess.
And I am also trying to find hotel rooms-- the couple of places I called are already sold out! It seems like everyone is more on top of it than I am

ETA: For those that did the 5k last year-- was the course the same? I know it's in the morning this year, and I saw that it's through Disneyland resort. I don't know how excited I can get about running through hotel areas. Granted, I have never been so it may be really cool. I am planning on doing the princess this year ( really want the C2C!) and am thinking I might just do the 5k through Epcot. Thoughts?

Actually, we don't run through any hotel areas for the 5k. The areas outside of the park were either backstage or around the outside of the park right behind carsland and DL but still w/in the boundary fence (the buffer zone b/w the fence that people see and the backstage area). And when you go over to DCA, hat part is backstage as well and you run and an underpass into backstage DCA! So no hotels for the 5k. They haven't posted the maps yet, but when they do, I'll be able to tell you better. But the Tink 5k was different than the DL 5k, different starting areas.

I registered for Tinkerbell as well. First half marathon - figured if I am only going to run one, might as well make it a good one! I also signed my 5yo and 4yo up for the kid dash. Hope they like it. We are also staying at the HoJo so it will be nice to know there will be a group to walk with on the Sunday morning.

Looks like the run Disney training program starts in September... might as well start practicing now...

Thanks! I guess I overthought it when it said the start/finish were at the Disneyland resort.

If the course stays the same as this year's, we will start at the Castle and finish in DCA near the Little Mermaid ride. Hopefully it does, starting at the Castle was pretty cool.

Hi Everyone,

Just ran across this site with the discounted room and ticket information. Hope it's the right one

http://www.gettravel.com/tinkerbellhalfmarathon/

Signed up for the 5k. My first ever race of any kind. I'm a new mommy with 50 pounds of baby weight to lose and nothing is more motivating than a trip to Disney!!

Booked the Hojo today. Can't wait to see you all there!!

Hey! I have a question...

I noticed there is an option for registering as a 2-person team. What is the difference? Are there any extra perks or drawbacks? My sister and I will be running this together so we wanted to find out before we send in our registration. Thanks!

Keep up all the good work everyone! You are all so inspiring!

The only difference is that you are running as a team. Both have to run the 1/2, but you have a team name and you compete in a team division. Other than that, it's the same.

Okay, Thanks! We'll do that, I think.
