I like that I've lost these 18 pounds. I did the math - that's 25% to my overall loss goal!!!! Seems like I have to keep on trucking if I want to lose this caboose.
I've done the 1 in NO, but before RnR took it over. NO is 1 of my fav cities so I'm a little biased, but I loved it!!! It was a lot of fun, and it's kinda like Disney races, you're in NO, so how bad can it be afterwards? I really want to go back and run that 1 again. I've done SD 3x's, it's hillier than you think it would be. I've also been jinxed and when I've run it, there's been no June Gloom and the course once you're outside of Balboa is not shaded so keep that in mind. But of course last year I didn't run it and the fog was back! And they're prices have gone up a lot. I know Disney races have to, but at least you get to be in the park a bit. I'm going down again and doing the SD 1/2 in March. It's a lot cheaper and the course is flat except for 1 big hill and it's prettier than RnR.

Congrats on the weight loss everyone!!

I'm working on the back way in for the waivers, but nothing yet. Maybe tomorrow or Thursday. And the course... We'll probably find out in the race program before they post it online. I can't believe we're a month out and no course info, that's just horrible. People should know where they're running before they get down to the race.

On 12/12 RnR did a discount so I up for San Antonio. It's close to me, flat, and December should be cool enough to meet my fair weather requirements. Ha! I love the bling

Yeah... This is what I'd suspect from an inaugural race. I think they've bitten off more than they can chew with Tink so close to marathon. And 20th marathon at that. The course should be released for goodness sake!

I'm thinking Friday since the site says "Includes all registration received through 12/17/2012"

Any back way in on the course? lol

I am doing a Shamrock 15 K in March. The Nike womend half in DC in April. Plus I am doing the Portland RnR. The RnR will be at the start of the Rose Festival and promises to be great.

I have it on very good authority that we will receive the course route friday moring at the expo with the caveat that it may be changed at anytime up to and including gun time. It is Disney afteral.

I though the same thing last year. While we got the course at the end of the summer, August pops in my head but I could be wrong, we didn't receive our waivers until 3 weeks out, mostly b/c of WDW. And I was thinking that they were taking on a bit much when I saw the program last year that the wknds were back to back. They should have waited to change Tink until next year when WDW moves back up a wknd. As for the course... I wish! But I'll keep working on trackshack tomorrow. Fingers crossed for good news!!

That is 1 of the funniest things I've heard in a long time. Although, my source says that they are going to post it in the staging area Sat for the 5k and Sun for for the 1/2. Hopefully the elite runners and A corral look at it 1st or we could be running all over Anaheim and a free for all in the parks!!! Wherever you want to run is good as long as you clock 13.1.

Bahahahaha! Too funny. You guys are dope.

I'm wondering if the point of Tink and WDW back to back was to give some folks the possible opportunity to do C2C. Will be interesting to see what they do next year. Thinking of the overseas folks or Canadians (holla!) who might stay in the US longer, and be able to get coast to coast quickly. Or they were smoking dope when they came up with this idea.

Canadian checking in - ya, I can see the appeal of doing the C2C in one big whirlwind trip for sure. The savings in airfare alone would be huge. But I wanted to be a PRINCESS so I'm doing it that way! LOL!

I do like the idea of clocking your own random 13.1 though. I'll be the one circling the castle in a lime green tutu like a crazy woman!

Wasn't prepared for the snowy sleet today on my run - good thing I was 1 mile from home - otherwise, I probably would have bailed!

Do we have to actually RUN the 13.1?

I wonder how many trips on Ca Screaming I would have to make to clock 13.1 miles?

I promise to move my legs at all times and keep my eyes firmly closed so I don't realize I'm going updide down.

Nice job on finishing! Hope you weren't too wet at the end.

Nope! Distance traveled while on rides counts, as long as like you said, you keep your feet moving while on the ride cars. However, height does not, so TOT and Mickey's Wheel, while fun, won't really do anything for ya! But you still have the 3 1/2 hours, so keep that in mind if lines are long. And remember, you can go backstage too.

I like the way you ladies think. We should just contact runDisney and let them know we've got it all worked out for them and they can concentrate on WDW - we've got Tink under control over here.

I am doing Shamrock'n. It's a nice course.

We are planning to to the San Francisco Rock n Roll in April since it is the inaugral race. We did Portland and San Jose this year and I got a PR in San Jose.

They usually offer discounts for all the RnR races on holidays. If you like the Rock n Roll series on Facebook you will be able to see when they have the discounts.

One of the perks of a Rock n Roll is if you get picked up by the sweeper bus they will drop you off at mile 12 do you can cross the finish line.

A very long time ago (and I say about 12-15 years ago), when my friend used to work at Disney, I did a Fantasyland 5K like that - you had to ride Small World a certain number of times, the Peter Pan ride, etc - it was a fundraiser. So it is possible
