Hakuna Matata Team Bios

Windwalker, aka Dave aka Panda- I'm 60 and live in a small town in Kentucky. I don't run I walk, race walk actually. I have qualified for another shot at the National Senior Olympics. Married to Sally.

es45 aka Elizabeth- I'm 42 and married with 2 young daughters. I ran my first 13.1 in the 2011 Princess Half.

Pudge The Fish, aka Emily- My DH and I will be doing the DL half in Sept. This will be our first half marathon. I still consider myself new to running, though I've done 2 5k (including the 2009 DL 5k) and one 10k.

Villians_Rock, aka Eva – I am 33 years old, married to Jordan (proud WISH supporter). We have two doggies, one son (Gage) who is two and are expecting our second this coming January. We currently live near Cleveland, OH. I'm a full time staffing coordinator for United Airlines and my hubby sells Harley Davidsons. I ran my first race in 2007 and have since ran 5Ks, 10Ks, half marathons and two full marathons including the Goofy Challenge. My favorite distance is the half marathon and I hope that after the baby I can train to reach my goal of a sub 2 hour race. Another long distance goal of mine is to complete a 50K and eventually maybe a 50 miler.

GirltheGecko aka Hope- I grew up in the Pittsburgh area. When I was a teenager, I was heavily into martial arts, unfortunately due to school and time, I had to quit. I met Nick, moved to NH, and I gained some weight. I watched my mother struggle with obesity all her life, so Nick's family and I decided to work at trying for a half marathon at WDW.

flipflopmom, aka Taryn – I will be 35 on Sept. 5. I am a Kindergarten Teacher, working on my master's degree in my "spare” time. Married for 12 years, have 2 girls. Oldest is 10, and a competitive gymnast. Her gym is 45 minutes away, so I spend a lot of time on the road. Youngest is 3, and a tons of fun! I haven't run a race yet, but looking for a 5K.

LynnG, aka Lynn, (of Lynn and Scott)- 60 years old, retired, we are both Disneyholics. We have been members of DVC since it started. I am a walker, I used to try to run, but knee surgery last August which I am still trying to recover from, I only walk now. I have done several half marathons, mostly Disney ones. I have 2 malamutes that are my walking companions at home.

MaryJ aka Mary- I am 53 years old, and live in a small town in Southwestern Indiana. I will be married to DH (Ken) for 34 years in July. We have 3 daughters and 2 granddaughters. I walk/run my races. I did my first big race (WDW Half) when I was 52. Before that I had done only a few 5K's, mostly walking.

Nikkilala, aka Nikki- Married to Ryan at WDW in 2007. Currently a Physical Therapist Assistant student graduating in 2012. Is a wogger (walker with a little jogging mixed in) Lives in South West Michigan where she was born and raised! Loves Disney and will do anything for an excuse to travel there, including a half marathon

Saylan – I'm from the frosty north of Canada. I'm very new to running (officially started October 14, 2010). I'm training for the Disney Princess 1/2 and it'll be my first official marathon of any length. I'm a Disney addict (been 16 times). I figured if anything can motivate me to run it would be Disney. I live with my partner (and Disney virgin) and a demon of a cat.

piglet24, aka Regina- I grew up in Idaho and married my “birthday buddy”, Kyle, in 2006. I started running to help manage some stress about a year and a half ago, and have continued because I enjoy it. Of course, I love Disney and am always happy to have another reason to go!

DisneyGerry, aka Gerry - Lives in Celebration, FL, transplant from MD after numerous vacations to visit central FLA. Trying to kick up my race schedule this year starting with the Disney Half in January. Play and work in the theme park corridor

bunnyfoo, aka Vicky - My name is Vicky and I live in Toronto, Canada. I started running back in 2008 so I could lose weight become more active. I wasn't into low carb diets but it seemed like a lot of runners had great abs AND they ate carbs. I thought "Hey I can do that!" I started as an indoor treadmill runner and eventually worked my way outside and signed up for my first race - the Minnie 15K. As they say, the rest is history! I have had my share of bumps, bruises and sprains but have had a lot of fun along the way and have met a lot of great people including everyone on Hakuna Matada! Three years later, running, working out and healthy eating have all become a part of my lifestyle. My other interests are movies, reading, road trips and baking!

rubato, aka Tandy - Hi. My name is Tandy and I’m the mother of a fabulous 12 year old preteen son. I’ve been married to Frank (a non runner) for 18 years. I’m a full time student, going back to school to become a nurse. I have always run for fitness, but it wasn’t until my impending
40th birthday that I decided to become a distance runner. I love the miles and can’t wait to run my first ultra-marathon someday.

RunRookie, aka Rick - My name is Rick and I live in Crystal Lake, IL. I am married with three children (one 13yr old still at home). I am a new runner, having started in April 2011. My initial goals were to lose 160 pounds, improve my overall fitness, and to live a healthier lifestyle. Since then, I have run 15 races and lost 110 pounds! I am a big fan of Star Trek, Star Wars, Sci-Fi in general, Disney, photography, music, movies, and technology/gadgets. And I keep a fitness blog at rickpeete.squarespace.com.

RadioFanatic, aka KimberlyI'm 39 mama of an almost 4 year old boy, will be 40 by the race; and was goaded into doing this past 1/2 by friends who knew I could do it although I hadn't run a minute in my life. I started training on May 1, 2011 by doing couch to 5k and the first day was miserable where even running that minute made me want to die. Since then, I've lost 70 pounds, ran the whole 1/2 and am looking forward to my new goal. I'm planning on doing a 1/2 in april and in september, my first full in october here locally and some other 10k and 15k runs in between and my second and most exciting full on the 20th anniversary at disney!

KippWade, aka Kipp - I currently live in Indianapolis, Indiana. My doctors visit in January of 2011 had me at my heaviest weight ever, 282 pounds. It was at this point that I told myself this has to stop. Before moving to Indianapolis in September 2010, I worked with a guy that ran. He told me a lot about it and I had mentioned that I'd had some Disney friends say that we should try a run at Disney World. He convinced me that even I could do it. It took me until March of 2011 to finally start in with the C25K plan. I registered for the 2012 WDW 1/2 in April and committed myself to running. I progressed to Bridge to 10K and then Novice 1/2 Marathon Training by Hal Higdon. Since that doctors visit, I've managed to loose 40 pounds of the 100 I want to loose.

tink06, aka - Stacey - I'm from NY (originally Jersey, but moved to NY with hubby) and have one cool DD who will be 10 in August. I started my weightloss journey back in Dec '04, was doing great, and then started the C25K in '06. I then found Disney Races, and signed up for the Marathon in '08 (I think?) I got to mile 18 and was cut off. Then I did the Minnie 15k, and got my bling. Followed by the Half in '09, and the Princess. Completed the SpaceCoast half later that same year (time was awful, but it was done) and attempted the full in '10. Really undertrained, bad weather, and screaming hip pain - got just past the halfway point and found myself once again on the bus! So... made myself a promise that for the 20th anniversary, I would make the 3rd time a charm and get that Mickey Medal once and for all! So I'm on a mission to shed some unwanted pounds, and get back into shape, so that I can start Marathon training come August! I will succeed this time, and appreciate the kick in the pants and encouragement for you all!

EMHDad, aka Tom - I am Tom, 32yo. My birthday is 2/24/80. I have been married 9 years, 2 kids (ds6, ds3). I live in northwestern IL (a town of 500ppl). I am a Pastor. I used to run in high school and college, but got out of the habit since. I have been running off and on over the past 2 years, but have been sidetracked by back issues, a move, and the winter cold. I have started back up recently. I am registered for a 10k Mud Run (35 obstacles) on 9/29/12. If that goes well, I am signing up for a half marathon(my first) on 11/03/12. I am confident I can do so, because I am already on a half marathon training schedule that the 10k fits into. During all of my previous training I never committed to a race (even a 5k). This time, I have put my money where my mouth is on the 10k mud run, and I have a partner entered in the run as well. That is very strong motivation!

Happy September team. Not much going on. Nursing school is intense and all consuming. Just trying to make it through with my head above water.

Harrison had his first cross country meet. He ran his mile in 10:30. He was disappointed, but it was 102 degrees at the time they ran. And, he's a big kid. And, he didn't finish last, so I was thrilled!

Hope everyone is doing well.

Good luck to all the runners at Disneyland!

First, I want to say GREAT JOB to all HM Team Members who ran in the Disneyland 5K and Half Marathon on Sunday!!!! WooHoo!!!! You all just killed it! It was great seeing the race results and I cannot wait to hear about it in your race reports.

Today while they were all running the Half Marathon, I was running my longest Long Run yet -- 18 miles. I admit to having some 'negative talk' going on in my brain about this one... could I do it... am I really ready... etc.

Perhaps that negative talk, combined with some dumb decisions at the start (like going out too fast), led to a difficult Long Run for me today. The good news though is that I did finish the run! And no injuries were incurred. You can read my report on this run and my week on my blog.

Sorry I have not been very active in recent weeks. As the Chicago Marathon gets closer, I am getting both nervous and excited. And knowing that Goofy is getting closer still, my brain is working overtime trying to keep my goals straight and my plan on track.

The blog has become my main posting spot. But I do try to stay up on what my team is up to. I cannot wait to see all of you in January! It has been way too long!

Hey team!!!!!

Got out for a 4.42M walk this morning. I feel like a slug compared to my teamates who are out there this weekend doing some serious milage.

Hey Lynn, will we see you at disney in January?

Hope everyone had a great Labor/Labour day weekend.

I had my longest run ever this past Sunday – 23 miles! I was particularly happy with this run, as I felt good enough to run the last 5 miles at my target marathon pace. What a difference a week makes, the Sunday before I felt like crap completing a half marathon in hot weather, this week, with cooler temps, I felt much better at mile 23 than I did at mile 13 the previous week. Also, my August numbers are in and I ran 187 miles for the month. I think I could have passed 200 if I had not somewhat tapered for the aforementioned half marathon.

Congrats to everyone who ran the Disneyland half this past weekend. I have to say, WDW marathon weekend has taken somewhat of a backburner role in my mind as I prepare for my October marathon, but reading the stories and seeing pictures from the event, has gotten me excited again.

Speaking of marathon weekend, my roommate (my brother in law) booked his flight to arrive very late Wednesday night…and I will be arriving like mid afternoon. Any recommendations on things to do? Thinking by the time I get to the Pop Century, it will be close to 3pm, and not sure I want to drop close to $100 for what would really less than a half day at a park. Also, given his change in plans, I have an ADR for my one "must do" restaurant - ohana for two people Wednesday night, if any other solo travelers are arriving Wednesday and would like to join me, they are more than welcome.


Hope everyone has a great week
Robbie

Just a social group of people from all over who like running, walking, cycling, losing weight, and/or just staying active AND Disney. We usually discuss how our training is going and other things going on in our lives as well as provide encouragement to others on the team. There is usually a meet-up at Disney races. Participation on the boards and meet ups is totally voluntary.

Feel free to join!

Thank you. I will take you up on that offer. I would love to join. Since I see that others' personal information is given. I will share some of mine.

I am Tom, 32yo. My birthday is 2/24/80. I have been married 9 years, 2 kids (ds6, ds3). I live in northwestern IL (a town of 500ppl). I am a Pastor. I used to run in high school and college, but got out of the habit since. I have been running off and on over the past 2 years, but have been sidetracked by back issues, a move, and the winter cold. I have started back up recently. I am registered for a 10k Mud Run (35 obstacles) on 9/29/12. If that goes well, I am signing up for a half marathon(my first) on 11/03/12. I am confident I can do so, because I am already on a half marathon training schedule that the 10k fits into. During all of my previous training I never committed to a race (even a 5k). This time, I have put my money where my mouth is on the 10k mud run, and I have a partner entered in the run as well. That is very strong motivation!

I am not looking for setting records. I just want to finish. That said, my training has been around a 11:00 mpm.

Glad to be a part of this group! Hakuna Matata!
