    Oh! I'm so in for next year. I don't know if it's going to be a family trip again or what.

    However, (I'm putting this out there) I hope that it's just a drop off, seeing how we're looking to move back "home".:cool1:

    My wife and I will be doing the half again, and probably have our kids do the fun run. I might try to get our 6 (then 7) year old to be able to do the 5k, that would be a lot of fun!

    Aw, Kim, thanks for thinking of me! I'm in Sacramento, so not horribly far out of the geographical area, but I'm planning on being in SoCal around that time. The Color Runs sound like a blast - I think they have one here in Sac. I'll have to check it out. I'm also intrigued by the Electric Runs. Have you seen those?

    My next run is on March 16 - a Biggest Loser 5k here in Sacramento. Supposedly there will be some of the former Biggest Loser "contestants" that will participate. Wonder who it will be? Hoping for a PR (which wouldn't be that difficult since I am sloooooooooooow... except I've taken a break since the Tink and haven't run a lick). :scared:

    Unfortunately, the Tink '13 already happened, and the '14 race won't earn your C2C. One has to complete an east coast and west coast race in the same calendar year to achieve a C2C. Now if you could someway find yourself in the DL '13 Half that would get it.

    If you want to run in Sept., you might want to check and see if there are still charity spots open. On the WISH thread, someone mentioned that they were able to register late last week.

    Completely worth it!!! It's a really beautiful medal and I'm do glad I got it! Funny thing- I'm doing DDD and W&D so I technically am doing it twice this year! But they don't give a second medal.

    Princess was amazing. I ran with tinkeramy and saysay from Dis and we are planning Tink next year! They are pros at stopping for pics so we got a ton. Weather was not so great but manageable.

    Big difference from Tink in size of the race. It's huge!!! But I love wdw and had an amazing time!

    Totally loved doing both girl power races. :)

    Next year is a big year for me. I'll be turning 40. :scared1:
    I'm considering going for the C2C next year, but not sure which WDW run to do. I think Princess (although better for training purposes) might be too close to Tink for work purposes.

    Have you done the F&W 1/2 before? Isn't that in November? How is the weather then (humidity)?
