    And Dumbo is sold out. Decided not to do it this year. Was a hard decision but the right one for my body and knees.

    If its in January I went this yr and weather was between 37-70. Some days could be chilly in the morning or late evening. But great in the afternoon hours. :)

    A few years ago it was sleeting and snowing on Marathon Morning and the water stops were ice hazards.

    This year, the consensus seemed to point towards uncomfortably warm/hot.

    It really snowed in Florida, or are you kidding?

    No joke. It made me glad I wore my winter wear from back home down with me.

    2010, the sleet and snow year, was when I discovered hand warmers!

    I am not a big fan of running in the hot and humid weather. I will participate when they offer it in the more mild months.

    Yes, I signed up for the Glass Slipper Challenge. This will be my first half marathon and I can't wait. Maybe, we could all get together during the Princess weekend.

    There was something oddly magical about running through the castle and exiting into snow. But that's about all that was magical with the weather that year!

    Had been in the runner's area all of 10 minutes when I dropped a mitten in the porta-pot. Ran the half in snow/sleet and no gloves... Was still an amazing race though!

    I was so bummed because I was at work and it sold out by the time I was out :( I still signed up for the Princess half Marathon though. This will be my third year doing it... I cannot wait!! Going down solo for this one. I would love to meet up with other runners if anyone is interested :)

    I impulse bought the early registration for the Tinkerbell half marathon as well.. My first coast-to-coast challenge year!!! And first Disneyland year for that matter :)
