yes. I run a 5k 5 days a week. I am slow, but consistent. The hottest it has ever been when I ran outside was about 70. How bad is the heat going to affect my run? Should I plan on 10 minutes longer and not feel horrid about my time?

Yes, it will affect you and your time will be slower. Don't worry. It's all for fun. Right?

My DH is very fit. I married Jack Sprat. He is doing it with me on August 1st to be nice. He has 2 marathons scheduled in August and September so this just to help me. We are also running with one of our friends who has just lost 75 pounds this year and has worked really hard to do this.

I am very slow, but I am doing it. Our friends wife is going to bring the girls out when they are ready and meet us.

I have heard you get a medal, but not sure. You will get a bib which I think is the coolest part, but I don't get to keep it unless I finish.

The one thing I have learned about most runners is that they are so kind and not judgmental when you are out their trying. You would think my DH could be really snide and make comments, but he is just happy I am doing it with him and I think most people who are on this run will be the same.

First time, I got up and alll ready, left them sleeping. They got up a bit later and got ready and went to meet Jack Sparrow. After they did that they took the tram and met me a few minutes after I finished. Second time they didn't need to meet jack again, and I had previously decided to go back to the ship to get showered and get my beach stuff. So I left them sleeping, came back, for them up and we all got ready to go. Basically we all got what we wanted. I got to jog and they got to sleep. Oh and on the second cruise I was getting up earlier so was making an order for fruit and coffee to be delivered really early, so I had that before working out.

Now that it's more run by rundisney they are more consistent with having the plastic medals at the end.

Glad to hear it. I've never had an issue in the past getting a medal, but based on the multitude of comments, it sounds like some people really had a tough time with them.

On a side note - I am looking forward to running the Castaway Cay 5k two days in a row on the upcoming October 23rd double dip

I think the medals are stocked on each individual ship and brought off, so if a ship runs out then the runners don't get it. I haven't heard of it being a big or continuing problem in awhile.

For me the bib is the thing. Especially for the normal CC 5K.

I'm looking forward to that same double dip. Recent pix of me are in my "cruise" trip report; if you see me, say hi! (or avoid me, depending on what you want to do, LOL)

Keeping everyone happy is important. I will tell you, it's a bit odd to split up like that on a family trip! But really, it's just for an hour or two (depending on how long the meetup and getting off the ship is, and how long it takes you to run it (takes me ages)), and if everyone gets just what they want, then you can swap stories and have something extra-interesting to talk about for a bit.
