Correct. Tangled was released in 2010, yet it was the theme this year. I am a little surprised they didn't chose a princess for the theme next year. I think they've done Princess and the Frog, Beauty and the Beast and Tangled. There are still a number of princesses to use.

I am sorry if this has been said and I missed it, but what is the theme for the 2013 race? Is is not a princess?

Think 14 minute miles as a rule - even on our good days without injuries. Since he won't be a 16 minute miler, and may be within 5 to 10 minutes of me - either in front of me or behind me since we find it difficult to pace exactly the same (his strides are longer and we take varying walk breaks), will that be misconstrued in any way?

At the Disneyland 1/2, there were a few guys who were very vocal passing up people during the first mile about how they "really weren't placed in the right corral". I mean, was it necessary to say that? So many people are out there just trying. Do they need their face rubbed in it that they weren't going fast enough for these guys?

ETA: Thank you for the responses so far. I appreciate the honesty.
Hubby and I will be doing the half marathon together and both are about a 14 min mil so we will be right there along with you both! If I hear anybody say snide things at the princess half...I just might lose my tiara and say something back or hmmmm maybe trip them ? (Did I really say that!? ) From what I have read on the thread (been amazing!) I would say this is probably not the race you want to do if you are trying to get a good time to qualify for say the Boston or New York Marathon. I am dong this one as my very, very, very first any kind of running/walking event as everyone in the past has said what FUN it is.

His reasoning is he does not want to watch the kids for a whole week and he says money is tight. However, I have my dad's timeshare, free airfare, and discount park tickets through the military. Essentially, the trip will cost me around $500 for the week (a group of us are going as a girls trip). How do I put it to him that this is extremely important for me to run this? Thanks everyone.
Sorry this has taken me soo long to reply! I am guessing either you or hubby are military since you mentioned the park tickets with a military discount. As a daughter and spouse of a military member this is what I would say (and have said especially to my spouse! ) " I have given and attended countless hail and farewells, change of commands (yours and others), retirement ceremonies, played bunko, attended numerous Air Force Balls, taken care of the house during your too numerous to count deployments all while trying to have my own career and keep a smile on my face since that is what is expected of a military wife! I want to do this (fill in the blank) since it is important to me and as many times over the years that I have supported you, the least you can do is say okay and have fun!"

This can be used by any princess as I have many, many friends who are not military but have also moved, held parties etc. to help further their spouses career.

I sent you a private message with some race information for our area. Not planning on doing the rock & roll as I just started training in May after never, ever,ever been a runner and at 45 doing the PHM for the first time, I am leery of trying to much too fast!

Super excited to be doing the Princess 1/2 for the very first time in 2013. I've hit all of runDisney's other big races expect for this one. So what better time than the 5 year anniversary!

My dad is actually retired Army, and will be down there for a few days that week. My husband is a general manager/ head golf pro at our local golf course, so he's always doing something with "the guys". I always have to rearrange my schedule last minute for his things and spend every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday night and all day Saturday with our girls while he "works". I work full time too and I need a BREAK! I pretty much decided that I'm signing up an he can just deal with the kids. As long as they are alive and in one piece when I get back. Thanks for the advice!

This is the big mystery. Hopefully they will unveil the anniversary medal and then we will know. There's been some speculation of it being Jasmine since the "save the date" card that they had at the expo last year was a geenie's lamp and some ads have had Aladin related stuff in it.
