I have a 5k this Sunday, a 5k on 5/4 (Color Me Rad, I'm so excited!) and a hilly 10 miler (Mountain Goat Run) on 5/5. Oh, and I'm attemping a sprint triathlon this summer.

Anyone else have races coming up?
I also have a 5k (my first) coming up 5/4!

Can someone tell me more about the Villains Hollywood Bash after party? i.e. what's included in the price in terms of food, drink, or anything else...

Also, there doesn't appear to be anywhere to enter the runner's information when just booking Bash tickets online - is there something I would need to produce on the night, or is just the Bash ticket all I need? Don't want to get stranded on my own either outside the park or not able to get on a bus if I don't have everything I need with me!!

Nothing like that - It is just like admission to the park any other time. There are really no freebies in terms of food/drink/etc.

With that said - It's still a blast.

That's a shame, I thought with it being a similar price to say MNSSHP there'd be some freebies to be had!
Is the park fully open, e.g. are the restaurants or counter service venues etc. still open as well as the rides?

Does anyone use Nike plus or Daily Mile? I am so lonely training by myself! Would love some virtual training buddies!
I'm on Dailymile!! You can add me, I'm Barbie L, and the pic is me dressed up as Minnie, it is my finisher pic from last year's TOT 10 miler!! Anyone on here can add me

No, no extras, most of the rides are open and a lot of the food places too (counter service, I don't think any sit-down places were open). They have DJ's playing music Extra characters out for meet and greets. Most of the rides open, but none of the shows other than I think Muppetvision was playing.

It was a lot of fun, but unfortunately I had to leave early cause I was one of the masses who puked that night LOL!! My goal this year for the party is I'm not going to ride anything, just enjoy the party and get some pics with characters- I think it was the spinning on TSM that set me over the edge LOL!!

I'm not registered for Hospital Hill. I think by the time I finish all that I'm currently signed up for this year, I'll be ready for a bit of a break. I'll have to look into that for next year!

You can always use last year's plan and change the dates to fit this year -
that's what I did to plan out my milege between now and then. The TOT plans form last year are in here: http://www.rundisney.com/training/running/

ACK, I'm so sorry! Been there, done that. Nailed by ITBS late last summer and finally seemed to get rid of it in Feb.

I didn't actively pursue food, so I can't say for sure, but I think I remember Backlot Express, the outdoor stands near RnR/TOT and ABC Commissary being open.

i'm on Dailymile too! I'm Emily M. my picture is me with a black top and white pants.

i went ahead and bought Bash tickets for my sister and my kids. i don't know that i plan to ride anything, but i do want a picture with the Evil Queen and with Darth Vader. i told my kids that i don't care what they do when i'l running--just no pictures with those two characters. and i also requested that they at least cheer me on through part of HS!

Which characters are typically at the Bash? And there are opportunities right through until 4am to find them?

are you running? if so, you don't need to purchase a Bash ticket. your running registration includes the Bash party. you do need to purchase tickets if you're having family/friends join you.

i purchased tickets for my sister and kids and have already received them in the mail!

Hubby's running, I'm the lazy one! Just thought there would have been something I'd need to provide to evidence I was with a runner...

Think I'll do will call as postage to the UK ain't cheap these days!

What's the time frame for picking up the runner's pack, will need to build it into our schedule? I'm a big advance planner but all this is new to me. I'm upset we've already missed the cheapest price bracket - I'm normally first on the draw!

But hopefully I can do a little training on vacation and gear back up for the last couple of months when we get back. I'm not really expecting to have an amazing time...just not wanting to get swept!
Congrats on the color run! I am still so nervous to try anything like that. I worry I am just not fit enough.

Also...congrats on starting the C210k!

I'm also considering doing a 10K the day after the half-marathon because I have done that 10K the last couple years and I really enjoy it, just not sure how my legs will feel about running that after running a half!!
That is a lot of miles!!

Annmarie, NICE PR!!!! It is my goal to get a sub-hour 10K someday, I don't think it will happen for me yet this year, but I keep striving toward it!!! CONGRATS!!!!

How is everyone's training going?? Have you started training yet? Waiting a bit??

I'm already training because I have a half marathon in August So my long run last weekend was 7 miles, which makes me happy that I'm almost to where I need to be for the TOT!! I know the next couple weekends will probably be wonky, so I'm happy I hit the 7 on Sunday!!

Hope everyone has a great day!! Keep up the awesome work And I'll try to be on here more often!! I'm such a slacker LOL!!
Thanks so much! I hoped I would get a sub hour one day... I never thought I would come in as first female. Granted... there wasn't a lot of competition.

June 23 - Baltimore Women's Classic 5K

I think June may be a little race heavy
maybe June is a bit race heavy... but what are you gonna do? Sometimes the races I look at are all clumped during the same weekend... but to scatter them across different months is a real challenge!

It is odd they have not changed over from last year... but I imagine you could just use it as a guide and shift dates.

Does anyone know what food options there are post race at the party? I know the food court back at the hotel will be closed and that box just isn't going to cut it... At wine and dine only the stands were open, no actual restaurants so I'm curious what they do for this one.
so cool to get that sub hour, isn't it?! Congrats!!! And I too like how they updated the time. Even for the phm, it seemed random and arbitrary.

I am doing the color run at the beginning of May with friends. We plan to walk and enjoy it. This our first time. Do you have any tips or advice?
