Awesome! Thanks so much. I emailed them today and they responded with pricing and stipulations. I just had to figure to find a friend to come with me, and I did! So I'm going to call and hopefully book it tomorrow morning! I can't wait!!

If you stay on property you wont need a rental car as you can take Disney's Magical Express to and from the airport for free.
Thanks so much for all your help! I have a cousin who lives in Orlando who will probably pick me up, but if he's not able to that shuttle will be PERFECT! I'll definitely check out the WDW resort. I need to book my hotel and airline within the next two weeks hahah

Reading all of your guys' posts make me feel so motivated . I'm so glad I found this thread to get support and helpful tips from you all!

Congrats! I thought Bill at Get was great...and the race confirmation comes from Active, so I feel good about the whole thing. If you need to modify anything on your registration Bill will have to do it for you. He had to modify mine the same day he submitted it because I forgot to check Coast to Coast. About an hour after letting Bill know that I got a second confirmation from Active with the change.

I picked the Hampton Inn since it has breakfast and the room has a fridge and micro. Do you know where you will stay?

I've been anxiously looking at the percentages, and after the medal was released yesterday I was certain it would fill up quickly. I was about to lose hope, but I got the offer today, which includes a significant pay raise and an extra week of vacation. On top of that, my birthday was yesterday, so this is my gift to myself. I wish I could have registered at ToT, but I was still too uncertain to bite the bullet. I'm doing a half in 6 weeks, and historically runDisney is there, so I wanted to do it there, but I was afraid it would sell out before then. I'm still on the fence about the 5k and the pasta party, but those percentages aren't as high yet. I feel like I have some time to decide. Now, to book the hotel and air. I'll be going solo for the first time ever (unless I win the sweepstakes) so the focus is really just the race. I may spend a day at MK because I'd really like to see the new Fantasyland. If not, I'll be doing the Dream cruise in May with the fam so maybe then. I'm just so excited over my new job and getting to register for this. I've been having a hard time staying focused on my half training for my race in 6 weeks so this is really going to put a spring in my step!! I can't wait to run in a tiara!!
Congrats on all the exciting things happening in your life and welcome to the PHM group

I almost wish they didn't have the castle part. I am starting to see the contest come up on all sorts of non-running sites. I just hope whoever wins is actually a runner and not someone who just wanted to stay in the castle.

For some reason, I don't think I'll forget

I'm wondering if you're seeing these ads based on tracking cookies in your computer. I've noticed I get a lot of ads for Disney stuff online on Yahoo, blogs, etc that have banner ads because of going to Disney sites etc.

Or a phone app - I use RunKeeper and/or iSmoothRun on my iPhone.

So, the temp and humidity has FINALLY dropped here in West-Central Florida and I want to offer a great, big THANK YOU!!! to all who repeatedly told me (and others) not to worry about pace as we trained over the long, hot summer... you were so right! I can't get over how much faster I am (even with a injury!) and how much more pleasant running is now that it doesn't feel like running in a steam room.

Right??? We have a front moving in right now here too and I'm so looking forward to running in what it leaves behind tomorrow morning! I just wish it would hurry up and finally stay for a while rather than going back and forth!

The front up here is going to leave behind temps in the 30s tomorrow morning, and I've got a 5k I'll be digging out that Under Armour tonight.

It's all relative, of course - by "cool" I'm referring to anything under 80 and less than 70% humidity! They're actually talking morning temps in the low-60s here... I'm breaking out the tights and jackets!
