    ROFL. Seriously, though, that's incredible. I've never heard of an 18-miler. I'll have to look up the Tink. Is that in Anaheim? Hook would be fun--he's kind of a diva. I can't imagine anyone running in a crocodile costume, though. Maybe not so much crocodile?

    18 miler was just one of the training runs for the goofy. Got one more long run coming up. Besides that just focusing on the back to back runs. Did 5 and 9 this weekend and felt good.

    Jiminy, which half you doing at WDW?

    Oh, I see. Well congratulations anyway! Geez. Is the Goofy 1.5 marathons??? Five miles is my longest run so far, which I was supposed to run this weekend. With finals for my night class looming, though, running has taken a back seat over the past couple of weeks. I'll aim for six miles on my next run.

    My dream is to run the WDW Marathon, and I have been noodling on doing the Half for years. I know I won't be ready for the one this January, though, so I'm thinking about doing a different one next year...not sure which. Guess it depends on season and registration availability. Which ones have you done?

    The Goofy Challenge is comprised of doing the Donald ½ Marathon on Saturday and the Mickey Full Marathon on Sunday. (You get a bonus medal. More bling!!!!!!)

    Doing the Dopey is adding the 5K Fun Run on Friday as well.

    Maybe 2014 for me. Had to bow out of 2013. :sad::sad::sad::sad::sad:

    I'll be having a Pirates pirate: and Princesses princess: weekend in February. I'm running the Gasparilla Distance Classic 15k on Saturday the 23rd and volunteering for the Princess 1/2 Sunday the 24th.

    Dang. That's over 40 miles. Wonder why it's called the Dopey. I think I'll struggle just to get through a Half. Don't worry. Disney will still be there in 2014, when you can try the Dwarves' mine coaster.

    My toes are actually getting a bit beaten up from time to time in my sneakers. I'm actually thinking about trying out the Invisible Shoe. It's about as close as I can get to running barefoot without actually running barefoot. Has anyone tried it? What were your thoughts?

    I've been running in Vibrams for a couple of years now and love them. I'm intrigued by the Invisible Shoe, but I've never liked having sandal thongs between my toes. Hmmm. Must think some more. Any input/reviews from Invisible Shoe wearers?:surfweb:

    It makes me a super sad panda that the Disneyland half marathon starts their registration at $175. . I really wanted my coast to coast medal this year but I guess it'll have to wait until 2014. That's more than I paid for the full marathon next month :(

    Did you all see the new Dumbo Double Down?!

    Was thinking about skipping DLand this year since I am running the Tink to get my C2C.

    But how with this, all bets are off. LOL

    Guess I need to bring the credit cards to the expo so I can get signed up. Hello to DLand Half number 5 for me Labor Day weekend. :)

    I saw something about this at the office Christmas party last night and thought I had too much to drink. But after looking at it on RunDisney's site this morning...:cool1::cool1::cool1: I was planning on skipping the left coast in 2013. This has made me seriously rethink those plans.

    I suspect it will sell out quickly though. So if you are thinking of registering, do it soon.

    I wanted to do the DL Half this year too but I'll have to wait because of the money situation and going to FL like 5 times this year! lol! However, with the new option I think I'll be joining in with the Dumbo in 2014! It's pretty awesome them adding a new race in California, even though I think that's bar far the most expensive 10K I'll ever do! LOL I'll have to get a new credit card for the Cali races!! :cheer2:
