Hi, everyone. I hope it's okay if I ask an etiquette question. I will probably be in the last corral so I want to try to get as much in the front as possible. My run/walk intervals are 30sec/30sec and I am not sure if I need to signal people behind me when going to walking. I don't want to be in anyone's way but I also want to make sure that I do what I need to to get to the finish line. I did an 11 miler this past weekend with an average pace just above 15 minute miles so for the first time since training started I feel like I can get to the finish.
I saw on RunDisney's FB page that someone posted how to find the USATF certified course map for 2013 so I hope that will help those of you looking for the course map.

Oh man how fun! I think we need to research some rides and do a 5k after Tink on rides.

I'm sure others can help you out more than I can. In the very few races I've done I've noticed (and tried to do the same) that people who are walking are on the right side of the road and runners stay to the left. So when I would run, I'd be in the middle or near the right side and when it was time for me to walk I'd make sure no one was directly behind me and work my way further to the right before I started walking.

From a ridiculous amount of googling, I read some where that if you start to walk your supposed to raise your left arm and shout walking so the people behind you are aware that you are starting up and slowing down. haha we should make signal lights with hazard lights for when we start walking. Ill draw the line there. BUT if any one suggests backing up beeping sounds.....

YOU ROCK! I run walk and just stick to the right side during the beginning of the race. It eventually spaces out a bit, but that's how I do it! WTG on your 11 miler! You've totally got this!

I am nerdy enough to be TOTALLY serious. I'll scour the internet when I have a chance and see if I can come up with some sort of plan to get a 5K in on rides. That would be AWESOME.

Gotta figure you get some distance in on Small World, Pirates, and Splash Mtn. I suppose we can't count the loops of Dumbo. That's kinda like you running around the castle in your tutu over and over again.

Got my voucher, too! This makes it even MORE real.

I never ask my DH for anything for Christmas (well.... Hardly Ever.... ), but last night I dropped some major hints about buying me the Rock'N Roll 1/2 Marathon TourPass. Unlimited registrations for the North American RNRs in 2013 for $399!!

Tried to sweeten the deal by selling him on romantic getaways to the race locales for just the 2 of us (leaving 3 yo DD home with grandparents). He ALMOST bit; said I should think about buying it for 2014 when our DD is a little older. But then again, I will be older, too!!! I turn 40 in 2014. He reminded me how good it would feel to tell myself "Look at all these 1/2 marathons I'm running at age 40 that I never could have done at age 20!"

He's my biggest

Blew off my workout this morning. Couldn't get out of bed at 4:45 and out the door in <30 degree weather. What a wimp!

OH! AND you guys have been cracking me up with the last couple dozen posts!!!

My bib number is redonkulously generous for my current speed. I'll probably start back a corral. Or at least in the VERY back of my assigned one. Cause I don't think I'll come near my old 10K time at this point with my leg being the way it is.
