It's definitely strange, but more annoying than anything else for me. The first time I noticed I wasn't getting emails I was worried something had gone wonky with my registration and all of that. I'll shoot off a PM in a moment, thanks!

I'm taking a few days off since I'm not feeling well but I'm finally, finally, finally training again. I'm still getting used to running on a treadmill but I'm feeling stronger each run. I already know I can finish the 1/2, but I'm nervous about doing the 10K the day before. Here's to hoping I'll be prepared.

ETA: Who else is having a hard time trying to find time to run? With the two jobs, both with very different schedules, I'm already not getting much sleep as it is without adding something else into the mix.

hello!

Just found this thread. I have to admit I am on WDW side of things more.

My mother and I are doing the DDD, cant wait.

Trainging seems to be going slowly. I am *not* a runner, we do the Jeff Galloway intervals. Last year we did Tink/DLR/Wine&Dine and earned our C2C.

This year I have been taking it easy on the runs. DBF is starting to run and together we have done several 5k's. Myself, I did the Hollywood 1/2 (legacy runner) and the OC 1/2. I find the thought of a full very intimidating.

DBF is going to do Tink next year and then the plan is to do W&D as well, so he can earn his C2C as well. We are planning a trip to WDW in 02/14, but I dont know if we will be ready to do two 1/2's so close together.

Best of luck will training!!

Yeah, a couple people told us about that, and it looks like it should be pretty convenient just having to cross the street and make our way through the esplanade on race morning. Thinking we might get to "sleep in" until around 4 am!

Our first and only Disney races were 1/2 and full for the Goofy Challenge in January. I ran with a fuel belt for myself and my then-girfriend (fiancée the day after), carrying two bottles of Powerade, an energy bar, and some gummies in it. I also had an ArmPocket strapped on to carry my phone. I suppose we could have listened to some music, but we were fine talking with each other. The only real time having music might have been a problem was if it was too loud to hear the announcement about a sharp turn or the "slight decline" into the Speedway; even then, unless you plan to lead the pack, you'll see others dealing with issues before you if you miss the announcement.

While I fully support listening to some Disney tunes while you run, if DL is like WDW, the park will have their music going for the parts that you're in there. Even if we had taken our own playlist with us at WDW, I think it's a little more magical to run through while hearing the music of the park itself. From the 10k map it looks like you could still take your tunes at least for the first couple miles to get you into the park, though!

Good luck and have fun!

While you might find the thought of a full intimidating now, you can do it if you can commit the time and effort to a proper training schedule. And doing it in Disney provides pretty generous pacing requirements and great motivation, to say nothing of the excitment of running through the parks!

When you say you're not sure about being ready to do two 1/2s so close together, are you referring to the possibility of doing Princess on your February trip to go along with Tink in January? If so, and if you're doing Galloway's training plans, I think you'd be capable of doing it with approximately a month between the two. It would be nice in terms of you already having the trip planned to WDW, but for what it's worth, I hear the W&D is considered by many to be the best of Disney's 1/2s, if you can only afford to do either Princess or W&D.

Whatever you decide to do, be good about sticking to your training plan and you can do it!

I'm with you! Last year when I trained for a half in October and then for the half in January I felt so prepared with all the miles under my belt. This time around I have a 3 month old puppy at home that takes every ounce of my patience with house training and obedience training that I'm having a hard time getting my long runs in consistently. After taking a few solid weeks off I'm only doing maybe 3 mile runs a few times a week and I've only worked up to 6 miles for a long run so far. And don't even get me started with being able to get a full night's sleep I can't even imagine trying to schedule my runs around two jobs! I'm having a hard enough time with one!

Does anyone know if there are still places available via any third party companies? My BF wanted to do this race. We have Grand Californian and flights booked with points. We missed the entry via RunDisney. TIA!

If you go on the DL 1/2 part of the run disney site, under registration there is a charity section. The have a list of the different charities open. Good Luck!

Not specific to DLR Half, but related to running. . .

Next Wednesday around the country is a limited showing of Spirit of the Marathon 2, a documentary following several runners as they prepare to run a marathon in Rome, Italy.

If anyone's not familiar with Spirit of the Marathon, the original followed runners preparing for the Chicago Marathon. We watched it while preparing for our first marathon in doing Goofy this past January, and it was very inspiring and well made IMO. If you're interested even in watching the original, I believe it is still available on Netflix and may also be available on Hulu.

If you're even thinking about one day running a marathon, I'd highly recommend checking out the original, and maybe keeping an eye out for the sequel next week or whenever it moves to DVD/streaming for rental afterward!

Thanks! Yeah, a full marathon is way intimidating. I have a friend who keeps trying to get me on her Ragnar team as well.

We talked about doing the Princess 1/2, but DBF is not all that excited about a pink C2C medal, whereas I am. I figure we will break him in slowly next year. If we do Tink, Hollywood, OC and W&D, it will be a good *first* year of running for him. Plus, that means two trips to WDW.

It may be too close to Tink for you, but what about the Surf City one? I love the surfboard medals! And it's a beautiful couse ~ along PCH for most of it, turn inland for a couple of miles then back down PCH again.

Just in case anybody needs it, the deferral info is available for this race:

http://www.disneynow.com/profile/for...D=0x115825dcfe

Info from the site:
Quote:
If you are currently registered for a runDisney race that is a 10K distance or longer, you may defer your race entry to the following year’s race for a fee.

Deferrals are not available for 5K and Kids Races distances and do not apply to commemorative items or ancillary products.

Participants may defer a race registration for any reason.

Once a deferral is requested and accepted, it is final.

Race registration and processing fees are non-refundable.

Race registration may not be transferred to another runner.

All races are subject to capacity limits and may close at any time. Deferral registration is limited to races with available capacity.

If the registration fees for the race you are deferring to are higher, you are responsible for paying the full higher fee for registration in the race you are deferring to and any processing fees. At the time of your deferral registration for the following year’s race, the fee for registering for the following year’s race may not be final. Disney will charge your original form of payment for any difference between the registration fee paid at the time of your deferral registration for the following year’s race and the final registration fee set by Disney for the following year’s race.

If you requested a deferral to a race with registrations fees less than your original registration fees, the difference will not be refunded.

Deferral is not available for Charity and Travel Provider group registrations. Please contact your Charity or Travel Provider for more information.

Once a deferral request is complete an e-mail with a link to register for the following year’s race (the “Link”) will be sent. The link is unique and may only be used by the person it is sent to. The Link may not be shared, transferred, sold, posted, or otherwise publicized. Disney reserves the right to take any action it deems appropriate in its sole discretion in the event that Disney believes that a race participant (or participants) have misused their Link or violated Policy. Disney reserves the right to cancel any registration that has been completed through an unauthorized use of the Link.

Deferral requests will be assessed a $45.00 deferral fee if all steps are completed on or before August 1, 2013.

Deferral requests will be assessed a $70.00 deferral fee if all steps are completed between the dates of August 2, 2013 - August 23, 2013.

All steps of the deferral must be completed by August 23, 2013 for your deferral to be granted.

You will need your original form of payment that was used for the 2013 Disneyland® race in order to be refunded. If you do not know which card was used, please contact:
