Plus, the 5k starts later so it'll be lighter out and there are less people than the 1/2 so shorter lines and better pics!

?
DD turn 14, three weeks later...so no 1/2. I'm okay with that. I really just want to go for the fun and get photos w/ characters. I assumed there would be lots of kids running the 5k and I would feel like I'm stealing the character time ( if that makes sense).
We got AP last week and just trying to plan fun weekends to go- and Tink seemed fun

They were off to the side either next to or under or around the mile markers. I distinctly remember them because they were showing me how snail-like I really am.

You're sick. No other way to explain it.

And I'm officially out for the W&D in November. One of my two 10 year old cars has decided it wants to cost me $1500 every 3 months in repair bills, so I'm in the market for a new vehicle. Its been heavenly to not have a car payment for the last 5 or 6 years, but it'll be sooooo nice to enjoy a new car again.

Don't worry about stealing pic time. There are kids that do the 5k but the pic lines aren't long at all and way shorter than the 1/2. A lot of the little kids do the kid races after the 5k so while there are kids that do the 5k, it's about 75%/25% adults to kids. Last year for the 5k I dressed up as Mr Smee and brought my camera for pics and the line was only a few mins and it was all adults! The mile markers are really themed out as well. So if you want to do the race w/ your DD and take pics, I wouldn't worry and would sign up and have a blast!

Oh no, sorry for the confusion, I meant a clock at the start line. I've noticed the mile marker ones, but for the past 2 years haven't seen/found the one at the start. I see it for DL so thought it was weird I missed the Tink one. It helps b/c it helps me figure out where I'm at when I see the mile marker clocks.

Good morning ladies, just rad about this on facebook and the WISH thread so thought I would post it too:

Breaking news for RunDisney fans! Princess Half-Marathon weekend will now feature a 10K. Completing both the 10K & Princess half-marathon will earn you a Glass Slipper Challenge medal and completing both the Princess half-marathon at Walt Disney World and the Tinkerbell half-marathon at DisneyLand Resort will earn you a special coast-to-coast medal with a pink overlay & lanyard!

Registration for the Princess half-marathon begins June 11. Registration for Tinkerbell half-marathon begins June 11 if you are also registering for the Princess half-marathon, otherwise it will start on July 9.

Anyone else a sucker for this and going to do it?

Bit of a repost from the WISH thread but I soooooooo want to do this. Probably not gonna happen, but I can at least dream of ways to pull it off for the next month until registration opens up.
But most likely fo rme it will still be just Tink and thats ok. Hopefully they'll have an early registration for AP or Visa holders. I dont think Tink is gonna sell out much faster this year than last year.

That's so funny you booked there ~ it's a running joke on the WISH thread that there is a requirement for that weekend that you have to be a DISer in order to stay there. Almost everyone is staying there so far.

I've never been to WDW and I always said if I go it's going to be to run the Princess Half...but I don't know... At least I have a little while to decide.
