I think you have a peer pressure problem!

I have reservations at BWPPI but am probably canceling to do GCH. my sister and my parents are all coming- and my sis really needs to be at GCH. I'm not complaining- but my wallet is groaning a bit. LOL Love that hotel though.

I'm getting kinda psyched about this. I go back and forth between WTH have I done- 2 races back to back in the heat of the summer? and HOLY COW THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME! Praying for a random cool front on the half morning. I can suck up a hot 10K but really need to be coolish for that half.

Can't wait for the BLING!!!!

I think you may be right!

I'll be back at DLH with my kids for Dumbo so it will be a different race vacation this time but there was no way they were going to ever talk to me again if I didn't take them!

I'm a little worried about the heat too. The 10km doesn't worry me much because as long as we start early, should be done before it gets toooo hot but the half is frightening me a bit. I have no way to prepare to run in the heat and I become somewhat homicidal if I get too hot when I run.

Lots of experience Disney runners here! What's everyone's favourite thing about the Disney races?

SoCal heat is not nearly as bad as the Florida heat. SoCal typically has very little humidity and is more in the category of "pleasantly warm", even in the summer. That's not to say it doesn't occasionally get hot, but it's nothing like Florida IMHO.

Love this. I like pleasantly warm.

Totally random, but I was looking at your signature, and it looks as though we may also be on the same cruise this October!! By the time the races come around, I will know for sure which cruise I will be on.

So I got myself into a little trouble with the Tinker Bell Half this year and hasn't trained a whole lot because of my work schedule. I am not making that mistake again this year, especially with DDD! So I'm looking into joining a gym since I think I have a better shot if I'm using a treadmill and not relying on running outside (haven't found a place I trust just yet). Anyone have any experiences with either Planet Fitness or Work Out World. They are the cheapest I've really been able to find and that's something I need, lol.

I haven't heard of either of those gyms so not sure of their costs but if you have a Costco membership, they sell 2 year memberships to 24 Hour Fitness for $349. It sounds like a lot but it works out to be less than $15/month. It is for the Active level clubs (which are the only ones I have ever been too).

Word of warning on the treadmills, and I know everyone is different but treadmill running for me is torture and I only try to do the treadmills if the weather isn't good (or once we move in to orb-spider season - I hate running when they have their webs across the sidewalks and they get bad around us here in South County ). I swear the miles go backwards when I am on the treadmill though, would much rather be outside, the runs always seem to go by quicker.

Good luck with your training though - I am sure you are going to do great for the DDD!!

I have friends that love and swear by Planet Fitness.

Disneyluvr81 - My family are Costco members but I definitely can't spend that much at once right now. Paying for Dumbo was hard enough!! Man real life is hard when you're just starting out on your own! If I trusted places nearby to run outdoors I totally would. I miss my old route back home!

jeanigor - Thanks!

Are there any trails near enough for you to drive to? That's usually what I do - not because I am worried about bad guys but because we live in a neighborhood without 8 million very steep hills.

I hear ya on that one! DDD was a tough one to swallow and probably a one time challenge for me! Something about getting 4 medals (the 3 for the races plus my Coast-to-Coast) was too had to pass up haha!!

I'm in!

I'm running in the Disneyland half! It's my first half and I am so excited. Are there any plans for meet and greets (or running buddies) for the marathon?
