I've started training finally. I opted for Jeff Galloway run-walk-run since I really just want to finish and my fitness level is not that great at all truthfully.
Nice!

With training, don't be afraid to repeat steps. For me, I was getting everything into better health, and my lungs were pretty far behind everything else. I had to repeat more than once, to make sure my lungs could keep up with everything else.

I think that most racers talk about "the taper", so I do think most racers would bring it down. Maybe look at one of the Galloway training plans for a 10K on rundisney.com and see what he suggests 2 weeks before?

Nice thing about the Half is that it's still a ways away.

Hey everyone! I'm not always an active DISer since my cruise last summer, but I'm so excited to be running this race! It will be my 4th 1/2 and my 2nd with RunDisney. My first ever was last year's W&D and then I also ran (half of) the 26.2 With Donna 1/2 and Full Marathon in Jacksonville Beach in February. In October, I'm running my first ever 1/2 with hills at the Allstate Atlanta 13.1 (KMN?).

My husband is running with me; it will be his 3rd. Our DS11 is coming with us, but not running.

How is everyone's training coming so far? We're having a hard time with all of the rain here lately in ATL; it's even more humid than normal! I have managed to convince myself ONCE to run in the rain but that was it. So I've only gotten back up to 4.5. My goal for this weekend is 5mi.

Does anyone else have any races scheduled between now and then? We're running two 5ks and the ATL 13.1, but that's it. I feel like I need a 10k, and soon! Good luck to everyone!

I see you're from ATL. Did you run the Peachtree? We have talked about running it every year since we started running (about 4 years ago). But our DS's birthday is on the 4th, so we never have. This year, he said that he'd like to run it next year as a way to kick off his birthday, so maybe we'll do it next year.

So trying to plan our days a bit now since ADR day is right around the corner. Does anyone know anything about the cool down party? It is in DTD on sunday... it mentions discounts at some merchants. Is this worth planning to do or something to skip?

I keep forgetting about that, Ann (if I may call you that). Since I've never done a rundisney thing I have no idea about it, but I'd love to hear answers!

Of course! Tis my name!!!

This will be my 4th RD event (having ran 2 and ToT this year will make 3) The ToT last year (as well as this year) has the villians bash. The phm didn't have any after party event that I am aware of that was included. This seems less of an organized event. I believe there is a party in epcot after wine and dine... a party inside AK after everest.... all of these seem clear to me on what is included and or what to expect. This one.. the "cool down party" seems like it really is less of an event and more of a "hey stop in and show your medal" thing.

I don't think we have a marathon-weekend 5K/MickeyMile thread, so I just wanted to post here (b/c I'm doing the Half so I'm comfier here) that my son has started his training for the 5K (and Mile) now. He is incredibly active, but his running is done in bursts. Basketball, or the running for gymnastics (barefoot), or just playing tag. It's run FAST then stop. FAST, stop. etc.

So we're actually practicing how to run further distances, how to pace yourself, etc. OK OK so he's having to do the same walk/jog as I do, but the theory is the same.

It's pretty fun! And since he can't get on the treadmills at the Y because he's only 9, we have to get out onto the sidewalk and really run. Good for me as well!

The Tag Fairy is jealous of you...Japan gets all the good electronics and video games first. Plus, DisneySea is so much cooler than any other Disney park. Can you be my tour guide when I visit?

I am thinking of bringing a tutu and dressing as a bridal Minnie Mouse.

New to the Thread

Hi!!!!
Back from ABD South East Asia trip, it's time to get uber serious about training.
This will be my 4th half. My first Disney RD race. I've worried about getting swept (a little) as the Austin half doesn't actually sweep, but my meds are working (I have RA) and I have faith that I can finish in nearly my personal best which will be plenty of time to even stop and pee once or twice AND get my pictures.
DH is making plans for the hotel and parks stay pre-race now. It's getting real



I have a FB group
2014DisneyHalfMarathon
if anyone wants to do hoopla support things and maybe get some conversation going.

WOOT!!!

--- DEEP breath
--- if I can do this, you can do this
--- don't psyche yourself out too much
It's YOUR race... race your race...
When I've done my halfs, I usually find someone to either try to keep pace with, or to try to catch up to an pass. I've always done races alone so this just seems to be a game I play with myself.
--- you CAN do this...
