I'm 40 in 2014. I plan on going Goofy plus Tink = Mad Hatter.

And of course princess.

I'm excited about running into my 40s with you ladies!

I'll be 39 at the race. I've done a half before, way back in 1997! Then I became a mom and running stopped until this year (where did all that time go?).

My training has hit a bump, I have a strange pain on the top of my iliac crest (the bony part you feel when you put your hands on your hips). I see the physical therapist tomorrow, hopefully I can run again soon. I'm walking instead for now.

Big congrats to those who conquered the TOT 10 miler!

I am 29! Trying to get my first half in before the big 3-0. (Actually that's just what I tell non-Disney folks, really my motivation is just a great justification for a trip to the World.)

Running my first 5k on Saturday. Yipes!

I'm 29 and will be turning 30 while in WDW... I'm also looking forward to meet everyone. I'm still working on my costume. I found this beautiful blue tutu, that I'll be wearing. I might make a t-shirt saying something with The Dis. I'm not going as a Disney princess, more as Princess Stephanie :-)

Right it seems like we are unofficially just taking roll call.

Is there a Princess that would like to make a Race Retreat W.I.S.H sign ? I'm just thinking maybe local so it's not another thing to pack in the over stuffed,over packed, heavy checked luggage. Or any ideas how we are able to make sure we all find each other at the retreat ? I've never been so I have NO idea how the set up is.

I'll be a race retreater, too, so I'll keep an eye out! I'm going with a couple of ladies I met years ago right here on the DIS.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So I finally found a local 10K that fits into my pre-Princess schedule... it's on Feb. 2. Nothing like waiting until the last minute, lol! But heck - if I can't manage 6.2 by early Feb., I sure won't be doing the half, either.

Will it matter that it's that close to the Princess? Could I still bring my time to packet pick-up?

Me too!

Also, in case anyone hasn't heard or seen it, the Disney Visa Discount is out and will open to the general public on 10/10 (I think?). I just cancelled through RunDisney and re-booked with the discount. In the end, it ends up saving us $210. More money for the expo!
