We just returned from a fun filled first marathon weekend - I did the 5K, DH did the 1/2, and DD did first marathon. We are all planning on returning next year and I will be moving up to the 1/2. Will be doing running/walking but will see how much of each as training progresses. DS and girlfriend are also in since they couldn't this year and son's girlfriend in undergoing chemo for breast cancer - running next year is going to be her goal after treatment is done in mid-march.

Great, I'm looking for a weight/strength program to go along with my injury recovery and Goofy Training. I'll look into this, thanks.

DISer's/WISHers, I can't tell you how absolutely wonderful this is to see so many of us with the same goal. Whether it's the 5k, half, full, or Goofy, I love that we all have a love for both running AND Disney.

At work people are so discouraging sometimes. Just because I'm injured they are telling me, "Go find another sport! You shouldn't run anymore! Try biking or swimming!"

Well, I look towards the support of communities of runners and Disney-philes such as this (as well as my doctor), in order to recovery from injury properly so that I can get back to training properly. Let's go!

(BTW the list of runners is updated on my first post.

I am so glad that you are not detered and working hard toward your goal.
I think strength training and other muscle balancing activities are very important for remaining injury free. Can't wait to hear about your progress.
My friends just think I'm nuts for wanting to cover 26.2 miles. Well some wont ever be happy but at least we have the support of the Wishers and Disers!

Just put a calendar together for training for the Columbus Marathon, then continuing onto the goofy challenge.. Figure if I have issues at the columbus marathon, I'll be able to learn from that and hopefully be prepared for the goofy.. Wow does it look daunting...... What have I gotten myself into

I'm...very sure I'm in. Registration hasn't opened yet. :P

The full was always my original goal. Always. The dream of going all over the World on foot is what made me pick up running shoes in the first place. I was scared of the pace requirement. I was never scared of the distance or the time I'd be out on the course.

After finishing the half this year, for the first time in my life I understood how VERY unprepared I am for this endeavor. If it were not for the better corral placement I would have been swept for sure. I've never felt that fear before. I really have to make every single day this year count as if my racing success depends on it. I need to be lighter. I need to get faster.

Count DH and I in for Goofy

DH was Goofy this year; I was only 2/3 Goofy so it will be my second attempt - next year hopefully I can skip the injury in the half

Exactly, I am with the other poster who talked about doing strength training and maximizing the full year to train.
I just started Jillian Michael 30 day shred to accompany my low mile runs and hope to start in p90x after that.

The 2013 Disney World marathon was my first marathon ever and I'm pretty much hooked where I need to do this every year.I know I'm good for the full marathon next year but I'm in awe of everyone who completed the Goofy Challenge,I feel like there's no way I could do the Goofy but it's only been three days since the marathon and it seems like each day since I feel more and more like topping myself and trying to do the Goofy,I have at least several months to talk myself into or out of trying it,either way I'm all in for the full marathon.

I have just started training and I am bound and determined to run the half next year. Right now I am following the Jeff Galloway program but hope to eventually weed out most of the walking but we will see how that goes. Good luck everyone!

You are all amazing. Seeing all of those smiling faces this past weekend was a real boost. I thank all of you for cheering on complete strangers. You really made my first 1/2 marathon that much better. Can't wait to see you all again for Goofy next year.
