Congratulations to all who participated/finished the Tink races. Just a heads-up on the DL HM weekend. Registration has only been open for just under three hours and already the Dumbo Double Dare (10k plus the HM) is sold out. The 10k is 95% full and the HM is 60% full. I know that some folks had early access via the expos, Disney Visa and DVC, but wow!

I'm signed up for the HM and DW is registered for the 10k. Lots of $$, but it will be fun!

I just have to say... that was awesome!
I loved all the costumes... I liked the group from Peter Pan (they even had a Smee!) and Periwinkle and Ursula and the fairy godmother and my favorite: Ralph and Vanellope.
I loved the "I Tink I can" shirts and my favorite sign was the "I didn't get up this early to see you walk"
And there's pictures:

I'm in the one with the Tweedle Dee/Dum, just to the left.

So excited for the Dumbo Dare! Where's THAT forum?

Maybe I'm just overly sensitive but I get very discouraged by signs like that, especially if I'm passing one of them when I'm walking

Hey everyone!

Finally home and back online. What an absolutely amazing weekend - nothing could have made it any more perfect then it was.

Finished in 2:36 so no where near a PR for me but I wasn't going for one. I stopped and took a butt-load of pics along the way. Even ran with Sean Astin for awhile - super nice guy.

Had a wonderful celebratory lunch with Patty and Kirsten - wonderful new friends who I absolutely adore. Was so great to meet people like you guys were we all hit it off so well right from the start.

Hotel was perfect, weather was perfect, both runs were great, people were great everywhere I went....

Didn't want to come home. Already freezing my tutu off up here! LOL!

How long until Princess? LOL!

Upload pics everyone! I want to see you all in all your race glory!

I thought there was a DDD specific one in the DL threads, but couldn't find it. Here's the DL forum one: DL 1/2

The WISH forum DDD Thread

And the WISH DL 1/2 Weekend thread

Thank you so much for walking over to the start with me, Kim. I was such a nervous wreck that morning and it was so nice to be able to walk with someone who knew where they were going.
I was above pace until mile 11 and then my knee started bothering me so I walked the last 2.1 miles and finished at 3:32:something. I'm a little bummed that I was only 2 minutes off of finishing within the 3:30 limit but I finished and was never threatened by sweepers so I'm happy. I'm so glad that I did this as my first half marathon. The first six miles flew by and it wasn't too difficult by that time to keep going. I definitely want to try again to be below 3:30 next year.

So it is ok to walk the race? It looked like fun on Sunday. I can't run long/far and still breath normally - breathing takes priority . Are there some Disney races where it is ok not to run and other where you must run?

It's absolutely okay to walk! The time limit on disney races is 16 min pace/3:30 1/2 marathon. The time starts from when the last person crosses the start line. For the 1/2's you are placed in corrals depending on what time you submit when you register. A corral goes off every 5 mins or so and there are between 5 to 7 corrals give or take. At the disney races, you see everything ~ people who run the whole race, people who do a run/walk ratio and people who walk the whole thing. The 5ks also give a 16 min time limit, but there are no corrals, you just line up. For the DL 5k in Aug they have placards where they'd like you to place yourself depending on how fast you go. As long as you finish in the time constraints, you can finish the races however you'd like. And they are soooo much fun!!! I reccommend them to anyone and everyone!

In DL, they have the DL 1/2 weekend which is Labor Day weekend and registration opened today. Some events already sold out, but as of right now, the 1/2 is still open (but could fill w/in the next day of so) and the 5k that is still open. There's also the Tink 1/2 marathon weekend that just happened. They have the 5k and the 1/2 and registration opens sometime over the summer, I believe it was June last year and it's going to be over MLK weekend next Jan. They do a whole lot of races in WDW as well. If you go to rundisney.com, they'll have a whole bunch of info for you.

Congrats to everyone and a big thank you to all of you that were so helpful with advice, etc. I finished about 5 minutes over my goal time, but it was a great experience. The kids races were also outstanding.

I found the marathonfoto pics of the half and a lot of my pics are not there - castle, finish line, etc and I'm wondering if more will show up in my account there. Any one know?

And what about the ones from the Neverland 5km? Will they go to the same place or will they be separate?

Help a girl out! LOL!
