I'm doing all three now! I definitely recommend the DL half, I did it for the first time this year and I had a blast. I fell right at the start, which sucked. I had a bloody knee and twisted my ankle twice (once at the start and once around mile 7). Everyone was SO supportive though and great. I shocked myself by finishing, and in time. I plan to do it every year from here on out . The best part of the run is going through Angels stadium. The stands are full of people cheering you on and you run around the field. It's the best feeling, ever!

I remember it being like the second week of January when I signed up this year. I am going to be checking everyday starting Jan 1st though. I don't want to miss it! It sells FAST! I don't think there's any way to get reminders. I wish there was
I'm sorry you fell and got hurt. But everything else sounds great. Running in the stadium sounds so cool! I'm going to do my best to make DL happen!

I run the DL 1/2 with DH each year and it's selling out earlier and earlier each year. So keep that in mind once they open registration. Planning is easy since the "resort area" is so close together. There are a ton of buget hotels surrounding the parks and you can easily walk to DL and DCA from the most hotels on Harbor Blvd. and Katella. So you don't really need to stay at one of the 3 hotels on property with so other options close by. The weather is always warm to hot.

It's always a fun race to run. Hope this helps a little with the planning.
Yes this helps! What would you recommend for airport transfers if not staying on property? Do they offer ME if you do stay on property?

DL planning is not as intense as WDW. There are so many fewer choices. If I go I will be using DVC points if I can or staying offsite at a good neighbor hotel I can walk from. There are tons of good local places.
Great minds think alike!

Sorry for 3 posts in a row. I need to get my thoughts together better.

Anyway, I just finished a 10 mile run for the first time since ToT. I was almost a full minute per mile faster. Temps were wonderful but so freakin windy!!! 15 mph winds with 25 mph gusts. I almost lost my hat a few times. Now I'm ready to do nothing for the rest of the night!

Well I wasn't planning on running this year, but my friend asked and I just happen to have leave...so I'm in for #3!!

I had surgery on my foot this summer and have been slacking on getting back into running and this is just the motivation I needed.

There are DL buses but not ME. Sorry but I not sure of the $$ and they are not free. (We usually always drive unless it's a quick overnight trip) If you fly into Orange County Airport (SNA) you can take SuperShuttle for around $14.00 ish $$ and it takes about 20 -25 min from the airport to DL Resort.
There are a couple of Best Westerns we usually stay at one on Harbor and the other on Katella. For Tink and DL 1/2 we usually stay at the BW Stovalls on Katella due to where the races start and finish. But honestly a hotel on Harbor is very easy too. Just a little longer walk pre/post race. But a much quicker walk to the theme parks than at Stovalls. (Hope that makes sense)
Try and pull up a map of the area and hotels and you will be able to see how easy and close everything is.

About 9 degrees Celsius (48F), which suits me just fine.

Messed up my watch and the official results haven't been posted online yet, but I think I finished in about 57 minutes. Definitely had a negative split, which was great. Usually I start out a bit too fast and end up struggling through the final couple of kilometers, but this time I finished really strong.

Will post a couple of pics soon. Was so happy to have an opportunity to test out the costume and make sure it's comfortable and easy to run in. And most importantly, I heard several kids along the way shout "Mommy, look, it's Ariel" so at least I know the costume is recognizable even without a proper mermaid tail!
Awesome job! Can't wait to see the pics. I so wanted to run that one but had a child care issue so no go for me.

I'm still on the slower side, but I was still below the pacing requirement with a 15:11 pace. I wasn't sore the next day, and it wasn't the mental struggle it usually is. I was surprised at how much easier it's gotten. Like someone flipped a switch or something. Just 2.5 months ago, I could barely do 1.5 miles without gasping for breath and hating every second of it at an 18 min mile pace.
Way to go ! Keep up the good work remember...finishing is better than did not start !
