Hey V! I'm signed up for it. Nic is doing it too, along with a friend of hers. Happy to hang with ya, since I am slow, too. 😀

We will def be slow! I expect my friend to be placed in the last corral as her current pace is about 18 min/mile. We will be working on getting that up enough so she doesn't get swept! I told her I would stay with her as long as we don't see the sweepers. If we do, she knows I'll be leaving her behind. Hopefully it won't come to that tho

I've been soooo bad in the past about making it to any DIS meet-ups, but I aim to do better this time! Time just always seems to slip away from me...

I'm hoping to be faster this time around; not dragging an ITBS-laden leg should help, right?! I haven't put in a truly long long run since Princess, but I'm back to an average pace hovering between 12:30 - 13:30mm up to around 6 miles. I'd love to be down to a 12:00-12:30mm by Oct....

PrincessV I just read some of your blog and it's so helpful! Love your info on the past TOT race and the Princess 1/2 because I'd love it do it in 2014 if the TOT race goes well. Hopefully this race goes better for you this year!

Just something I've been wondering...what do you take with you to the corrals? And do you carry a bag or anything during the race?

I think not as many as some would have liked. I remember being thrilled to see the grave keepers.... Dr. Facilier... the hyenas. Stitch was out too... I am trying to remember who else.... cards from the queen of hearts? Oh... big bad wolf. I thin there were a couple more maybe?

Here is what it says...

If you buy discounted tickets through runDisney, can you upgrade them to AP?

I understand that "special" tickets can't be upgraded, but I wasn't sure whether the discounted tickets count as special.

"Special Tickets include Touch of Magic, YES (Youth Educational Series) Program, used or unused Special Event Tickets (MNNSHP, MVMCP, NoJ) after the date of the event, any ticket that includes the word “comp”, “complimentary”, "SPORT", or "YOUTH" on it, or has a "not valid before" or a "not valid after" date on it and any tickets that are not sold at the Park Gates cannot be upgraded or modified in any way."

you probably can but like the military tickets and the florida resident tickets they just use the price you paid for the ticket they wont do any "bridging" like they would with some of the other discounted tickets. so really you are paying the same either way

Another slow poke..

Add me to the first timer, slow, running solo group!

Family will likely come on the trip...but I am the only runner for the 10 miler. Still trying to talk a friend into it but she may do W&D instead. Going to sign DS up for the sprint and maybe the 5k with my dad. But first we'll see how he does in the Color Run this weekend.

We will also likely stay at Port Orleans or Shades of Green.
