Yes, and I believe you can walk from BW to the start of the race as well, avoiding any need for a bus

Yes, you can walk from the Boardwalk area to the start of the race at DHS- that's what we did last year! And we walked back to the resort after the race also.

How long did it take you to walk? Not trying to get there right at the fireworks, but excited that I don't have to wait in line for a bus to again wait in line for a bathroom (who am I kidding, that will happen anyway) then wait to go to my corrals.

I think it took about 20-25 minutes to walk from the Boardwalk to the parking lot for the start of the race.

It's about a mile to walk from BW to HS. I'll be walking from our room at BWV to the start corral also. I'm sure alot of people will have the same idea so add a few extra minutes for foot traffic to get there.

Coming out from lurking...

I am running the TOT race this fall, basically I caved under peer pressure and now I am really excited. Some fellow DISfriends that I "met" through writing PTR for our Christmas Trip in 2011 are getting together for a girls trip and DISmet together around F&W, MNSSHP, and TOT Run.

I have never ran before in my life, the only time I have ever ran was cross training for swimming in high school and that was too many years ago and my swim coach shed lots of tears over my running. I do come from a sister who was a long distance state winner, my husband who was also state champion...and my dd who is a long distance runner!

Basically the girls decided to do this and would not let me be the cheerleader...I am glad they pushed me into this because I feel like I am doing something and it is getting me a trip to WDW without my husband blinking when I walk through the door....

You are gonna do AWESOME! I had no prior athletic experience.... I mean... seriously... I didn't even run during PE in school. Often I sat PE out (any chance I could) A year ago, I couldn't run a quarter mile.... and now, well you know how I am doing. While cheering would have been fun too... I think you are going to love the sense of accomplishment you will have when the race is over.

That's awesome - good for you!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I can't believe I'm about to say this, but... I'm actually looking forward to another long, HOT summer of training runs. I am so sick of trying to decide on what to wear on these chilly (yeah, yeah, I know - boo hoo, poor Floridian, right?! It's okay, I know how good I've got it ) mornings; summer is just so easy, in comparison - shorts or skort, sleeveless tank, socks, shoes, out the door.

I will, of course, still complain when I'm near heat stroke or dodging lightning strikes as I run through a tropical storm, come late August.

I still need to register. I am thinking next week. I still don't see a bar, so i assume we are still under the 50% mark. I have a feeling that is going to jump up the closer to the end of march we get. I have a 10k that I am going to run next week... to use as a time to submit. Not that I need to get into a specific corral... but I want to see what corral I get into. Running in that corral will depend on where my friends end up.
