Looks like you just started it! Congrats on signing up for it! My first half was the DD.
I think of all the races...this half is probably the most popular. People are feeling are great and ready to go!
You have time to train for this now. Make sure you find yourself the best pair of running shoes for your feet! Get them at a proper runner store place.
Of all the investments, that the biggest deal.

Just changed the title of the thread.. I've ran three 5ks but never done anything longer. We are very excited.

Running shoes are ready and we just printed out our training schedule.

I'd sworn off any Disney races beyond TOT for 2014... but I caved. I'm in for Donald! It'll be my second Disney half, possibly third half altogether - I'm looking at a local race in late Oct. or early Dec., too.

P.S.: Hi sunnygal!

I just joined the site but I'm definitely doing the half marathon this coming year! :D I want to wear a figment hat or do something special. Cause I plan on asking my gf to marry me after the race. but my ultimate plan is to do the coast to coast next year.

Thanks! I have no idea what my plans are for the whole thing so we will see how it goes.

But definitely put me down on the list for people running the half!

Hi! I'm signing up for the half today! Waaaaaay outside of my current comfort zone as I have only run three 5Ks so far in my running career. But I am committed to making this happen in 2014! So I would love to be a part of this group as I prepare!!
