God I miss running. First cruise I brought my shoes but we were having such a great time as a family I skipped it. Second (and techically third cruise since it was B2B) I had broken my foot twice in the 7 months leading up to the cruise (dumb luck - same foot different bones). I have had two major abdominal surgeries this year and haven't run since last Dec. Chance of doing CC 5k in March - zero. Seems like a pretty good reason to book another cruise however.

Pre-register?

Want to do the CC5K but am having trouble running down information . . . is the run available on every cruise? Do you pre-register or do you sign up on board? I'm doing the 7-day E. Carribean itinerary in January and this run is a *huge* motivator for me . . I may cry if it's unavailable!!

From what I know, any cruise that stops there has it. No need to sign up. Check the navigator. It tells you time/place to meet and everyone goes together. Good luck!

Will the 5k go on rain or shine? There's a 40% chance of rain the day before we are there. :-/

Woo hoo!

I just found out about the cc 5k and I am soooo excited. I did the wine and dine half in november as a "bucket list" girls trip with friends.I needed a huge carrot to dangle to commit to thirteen miles- and it was so worth it. Highly recommend that run. coming back, I told eveyone back home that running a disney race had spoiled me, thirteen miles had broken me (just a little), and I wasn't sure when I'd run another race.
I now have an answer to that question: castaway cay on my 1/19/13 cruise! Motivation to figure out what's going on with my hip, hit the treadmill, and retool for this trip. A new year's resolution boost and a great reward.

I would LOVE to hear from someone who's done it what the childcare situation is- I'd like to talk DH into running it with me (since he's been picking up on childcare for all my training this fall and hasn't been able to run with me yet).But that'll only work if CC kidcare is open for out 2 and 4yo girls.

Any thoughts??

Well I just ran it last Friday. Goal accomplished. Here are some pics. You can also check my blog to read how I did on the race afatrunner.blogspot.com

The ship arriving at Castaway Cay...


We were told to be at The Tube at 9:15am. There we signed up and were given our bibs. We were the first group to be allowed off the ship.



From there we walked to the starting line. We were shown the route on the map and we were on our way!



I don't have pics of the race for obvious reasons. But here is the medal they gave me and the shirt I bought,





If you guys have any questions feel free to ask.

Rebecca Low? Hey a fellow Pachyderm! I don't know if you remember but Trent and I congratulated you at the end. Like you, I wanted to finish before the CM's left. I finished 2 minutes behind you.

Congratulations on your first race!

I finished W7D2 of the C25K app today! I am going to spend the next few months increasing my speed so I can finish in a decent time when I run it in March.

I ran it on Tuesday this week with a group of about 70 others and we did not get medals. Only a certificate as we crossed the finish line. It was still a fun experience.

It does fall in line with previous reports that Fantasy has medals and Dream does not.

Tip for those that are running: Don't forget to wear sunscreen! The day started out overcast but the sun came out in the middle of the race and beat down pretty hard.
