This will be our 1st Tinkerbell 1/2 but last year we did the Princess 1/2 and we are only able to "walk briskly". We were in the 2nd last wave to start, and we kept a pretty steady 15-16 min pace. Did not stop for pictures and when we did finish there were still quite a few people behind us.
We assume that we will be able to keep the same pace this time, so hopefully we won't be near the "sweepers" ... We just need lots of Pixie Dust
so we can keep flying. We are with the Team in Training Flex Team. A very special event - since this is in memory of our "Tinkerbell Angel"
Who got her wings 11/22/10 She would be proud of her Mom and Dad
See you all there on Jan 20th

At the Princess, no, there are not Brighthouse photogs to take pics with characters. I assume it's the same at all rundisney races. There will be handlers there to take a picture with your own camera though.

HA! I thought there were two Canadian Vancouvers (like there are 2 Kansas Cities) so was wondering what the difference was- thank you! Geography is not my strong suit.

Terrible. May have been more than 20 but I remember one post about it and she said there was a group of them that this happened to.
It happened again at the DL half to someone I know. Same exact situation!
