Kim - So good to hear an update from you! Sorry your run was crappy BUT you did it and thats what counts! Tink will be a piece of cake for you next weekend now!!!!

Want to get out today for a few miles. Gonna wait til it warms up a bit though. Its still in the low 30's here and that is just way too cold for this Cali girl!

GAH! It needs to warm up here some more next Sunday. I am not looking forward to running if it stays as cold as it's been lately. I'm already miserable working out in the cold I don't need to do it for 'fun' too, lol. It doesn't help that I keep getting sick either.

It can't be any worse than some of what I've run in.

It was in the teens yesterday (ditched outdoors for indoors that day, only got a short run in due to being on phone for about five hours fixing a phone) but its at least starting to warm up here. Still freezing cold though.

As long as it doesn't hit the high 80s like during the Disneyland Half I will be a happy camper.

Jess, I wasn't sure if you were running Tink. My mom and I will be there Saturday morning. We're doing dinner at Marri's if you want to join us.

It was at freezing when I did my 6 mile run today. Yikes. Lots of icy spots so my run wasn't as "smooth" as it could have been - lots of careful stepping! No need to wipe out one week prior...

Hi ladies!
I have a quick question- last year the walk to the race start from hojos was crazy long! I am wondering if anyone knows if i can cut to the start through the GCH? Meaning i am walking through DTD and turn left into GCH at their tiny DTD entrance and then come out at their car/main entrance which is where the corrals line up on Disneyland Drive?
Last year people were jumping the fences to get into corrals
The start was kinda a mess!

Also, is anyone wearing a running skirt and tank? I think the temps will be in the 50s. Last year it was about the same and i wore crops (hit just below the knee) and a running tee shirt and i got too hot! I am bringing a toss away sweatshirt to throw on the side of the road once i warm up.

I am really worried it is going to be too dark! Last year the course lighting was bad- super dark! Be sure and watch your footing!

I'll be wearing Capri running pants, my green sparkly team sparkle skirt with a tank! I will how ever be wearing a throw away long sleeve for the start! It's been -20 to -30 here (aka approx -22 Fahrenheit) so anything higher then zero degrees..... I'm happy with ill be wearing a tank that says train like beast to look like a beauty woop!

I would gladly take the 80 degrees over the cold. I cannot handle anything under 70 and even that's too cold. I'll probably be running the whole thing in my jacket. We shall see!

I am indeed! I am going to see how many years I can run this one. My family was supposed to be running as well but they can't make it now. I may just have to join you guys. I liked that place last year. I got the whole weekend off from work so I should have no problem making it.

We're planning to eat at 6. My sister signed up but she flaked on me.

I'm going to try and run this one each year. I wanna be a legacy runner. I was seriously considering skipping the one in Sept until they changed the medal but now with the Dumbo Double Dare I want to run it. Lol.

Anyone else who wants to join us is welcome! Marri's is really good!

Alrighty! I shall put that in my phone so I don't forget. Now that I know the area better lets see if I have an easier time finding the place, lol.

So long as I have the money I would like to keep doing both events here in CA. I would love to go for the C2C in 2014 and do the Wine & Dine I think. We'll see though.

And I am seriously thinking of attempting the Dumbo Double Dare! I did well enough with the 5K and Half this past Disneyland Half so I think I could do it. I'll decide when registration opens, lol.

I know they were letting people sign up this weekend at the WDW Marathon Expo so I'll bet they do the same at the Tink Expo.

I did not run the Tinkerbell half last year but my husband did and we were staying at GCH and I pretty sure he just walked right out of the hotel straight to the corrals. I'll ask him in the morning. I am sure you can cut through though, people do it all the time.

I am there again this time but no husband, just 3 friends and we are all hoping that we can head down around 4:30 am or so and still be okay time wise but now I am wondering if we should allow more time. I am in A corral but my friends are in B and C. New to running so any tips for handling corrals in a large race like this would be great!
