I'm excited for registration tomorrow! I can't wait to make it official! Anyone doing both the half and the 5K? If so, are you registering for both tomorrow?

::chanting:: Do it! Do it! How fun would it be having a pre-princess meetup, cold beer & a beach too? Sounds awesome.

And, yes--I'll be doing the 5K and the half. My daughter (who will be turning 6 during our trip) really wants to try the 5K. I obviously won't be racing (although, in most of my races several 8/9 year olds have finished ahead of me, so maybe I will be. ). I just hope she is able to cross the finish. I think I'm going to hold off registering for the 5K a little bit until I can get her outside some more to make sure she can do the pace.

He isn't much support in that department. He likes the idea of me trying to better myself. (he was the same way when I told him I wanted to do a 5K)

When I first started running in February I wasn't able to run for 30 seconds without feeling like I was going to die! In my second ever 5K a couple of weeks ago I averaged a 13.5 minute mile. I was very proud of myself. And it was HOT!!

So I guess I'm just rambeling... With or without his support I AM DOING THIS!!

Go for it! I'm sure he'll jump on board and be supportive. If not, there are tons of us here to cheer you on! My hubby was skeptical too, but now he's started running and has signed up for a race himself. You never know!

I woke up so excited! I am taking the kids to the waterpark today though so I have to wait until later afternoon to register! Is it bad I considered making us go later so I could register first? I did have to remind myself that it won't fill up today!

In April my 7 year old DD did a 5K with me. We did Jeff Galloway run 2 walk 1 I ran at her pace.. that stinker had us finish in 37 mins!!! I was so very proud of her. It was no sweat to her at all.

LOL! It won't fill up today. I think there will be many months of registration time. But I totally understand the giddyness!

Does anyone know if you can pay for race reg with Disney gift cards? I know you can with the discounted park tickets, but not sure of race reg. The cheapo in me is always thinking of working a deal - our local grocery store is doing fuel points and when you buy a gift card from them you get 2x the fuel points. As we are about to go on vacation..... I'm looking to up that amount!

Oh, and thanks, Julie (SaySay) for the awesome video - I feel famous! Although we need to discuss about including my Tinker tinkle break! I feel like if we get a group of Princesses next year, we might have to actually work out choreography or something. Hmmmm....flash mob at the Magic Kingdom? It could happen!

Not sure if you can online, but when I called about host resorts the guy said they could take race registration over the phone too. Maybe if you call they can do it with gift cards?

Tinker Tinkle... tehehe! I want to be in on the flash mob. How fun!
