    wtpclc (Carrie) and dh (Scott). This will be our 2nd :D WDW Full marathon and second marathon ever. We'll be at Beach Club Villas from 1/5 to 1/12. Again, we hope to run the whole way (minus water and pic stops). We'd like to break 5 hours this year.

    :wave: Amy here! This will be my first marathon, planning on doing the Full (have to send in that registration paperwork :blush: ). I will be doing several smaller races up to the WDW race in preparation, following both Galloway and Bingham's training plans respectively. I hope to run most of the marathon, walking at hydration stops, maybe doing approx 10:1 intervals. That's the plan anyway. Staying at BWV from Friday before the race and checking out on Wednesday post race.

    Dave here as requested. :wave:

    My plan is to do the full marathon in January '07, but I have not registered yet. It will be my first marathon ever, and I plan on some sort of run/walk strategy. I ran a lot of races about 10 years ago, and I will be running smaller races leading up to the marathon in January. So far I am planning on running a 10K in May, a 10 miler in August, and a 1/2 marathon in September. I would list my experience as intermediate, but I'm a beginner at this "incarnation" of my running. Don't know where I'm staying or any of those details yet.

    Marissa here :banana:; Goofy in 2007-- Second Disneyworld Marathon weekend; also running the Minnie and the Disneyland 1/2 and some other small races along the way; hope to run most of it, but with Goofy will definitely have walking intervals in there!!! Currently booked at Grand Floridian, but if I do Team in Training, I will be at their hotel (CBR, I heard??); then switching to a DVC Villa after the weekend!

    DH (Mike) and I will be running again in '07. Full for me and half for DH again. It will be my 3rd year for the WDW marathon (Goofy '06) and DH's second WDW 1/2. I will be running the Minnie 15K and the DL 1/2 before that time. I've been running for many years and only race at Disney events, as I really don't enjoy racing. I just enjoy Disney and getting away with DH (and DIS Meets!!). At the kids' request, we're planning on staying at POP. Thanks for starting this thread :)

    Jen here. I am a beginner doing the 1/2. This will be my first major race. I am doing a 5K in May and possibly a 10K this fall. I will be run/walking and possibly an intermediate by the time the race rolls around!!

    I have not registered yet, but we are looking at where to stay. Possibly the Wilderness Lodge? I will be bringing my girls along, DD3 and DD6. I will post more updates as I get more info on me.

    Judy - Since we are both beginners, I will be keeping my eye out for you!!!!!

    Jen, how sweet! :goodvibes Thank you! I'll look for you too. I was actually thinking maybe I could make nametags for everyone for when we all have dinner or something. :teeth:

    Hey, it's Mel (short for Melissa for those who have asked :) ).

    2007 will be my 2nd WDW half and my 3rd half overall. I'll also be at WDW in May for the Minnie 15K. I had never done any distance events of any sort until last year. I still don't feel like a runner yet, though my intervals are now more running than walking.

    Thinking about doing the full in 2008...that's the year I'll turn 40, so seems like a good way to start it off!

    I haven't made ressies yet, but hoping for BCV Jan 5 to 8.

    Judy, if you want to do nametags, that would be cool! Helen took care of it last year, but looks like she won't be with us next time :sad:

    Kevin here. I will be goin' Goofy in 2007. I did the 2006 full as well, so it'll be the second marathon for me (and technically, my first half). Mostly running it, I hope. Staying at the Polynesian.

    Lynne here. Going Goofy for 2007. 2nd WDW Marathon weekend, my 3rd marathon and 4th half marathon without the swim/bike warmups I prefer. If you include the swim/bike warmups, it'll be my 6th marathon and 10th half. We'll be staying at OKW from Jan 1 or 2nd to at least Jan 8th.

    Minnie (Suzy) here :wave:

    I missed out on my WDW 1/2 last year due to injury but I am going to be there this year somehow someway ;)

    I plan to run/walk the 1/2 and I am not sure yet where we will be staying. It has been years since I have done anything competitive (other than horse related) so I feel like am back to beginner status. I do plan to try a couple 5 or 10ks sometime before WDW.

    Me me, I am coming. I look forward to meeting you all as well.

    I am doing the half. Not sure where I am staying yet, probably one of the values. DH might be coming as well, but not sure about that yet.

    Judy & Jen look for me too! I am another beginner planning to r/w the half. It will be my 2nd half with the first being this August. I just did my first 5k about a week ago.

    I plan on staying at one of the values, probably pop century.

    I may be alone - except for all of you ofcourse! My husband, dkidsx3 and I will be in disney at the end of this month and I am not sure if they will be able to join me in January. But I get to go because it will be my birthday weekend!

    Thanks for starting this thread. It is motiviating to see who else is committed to 2007.

    Melissa - 2007 Full. I think if I include Goofy (my 1st full) and another ultra i did in feb, it will be my 5th or 6th (depending on if i do the 50 miler) marathon distance. I've done 3 1/2's.

    I haven't registered yet either, b/c we are undecided on the whole 2nd baby thing. If we do decide to get pregnant (and God willing we can) I'll still try to do the full but it obviously depends on timing (Sorry - too much personal info!)

    :yay: Hi, all! I'll be there with DH WALKING the half. Look for me at the end of the pack! We'll have done a 5K, a 10K, Minnie 15K, and the DL 1/2 by then. Going to firm up ressies after Minnie. So looking forward to seeing all of you! :woohoo: Anne (with DH Bob) :crazy:

    goofyguy1958 here, AKA Mike B., I will be going Goofy in 2007 and they already have my money (I registered on Saturday, April fools day :confused3 :rotfl2: - I just got that). This will be my 5th marathon and 15th half but never back-to-back. Staying at either OKW or home at SSR depending if I can get DW to breakdown and come along with DD and DS. Here I go getting myself in trouble again; my goal is to do the Goofy in under 6 hours! :crazy:

    Susan and I are doing the Half again in 2007. We walked really really fast (for us anyways! LOL) in 2006 so we're hoping to walk/run it with more running in 2007.

    It will hopefully be our 3rd Half Marathon we finish.

    In 2005 we attempted the Half but chased down the bus because there was a rumor they had bananas :banana: We finally caught it at mile 8.5 :) Mmm banana good.

    We'll be back at either OKW or SSR and plan on arriving Thursday morning. We will be heading to the Expo for when they 1st open. Afterwards we plan on checking out the booths more, we didn't in '06 only shopped the weekend merchandise.

    I'd have to say for speed we're still beginners. There is a gazelle in there somewhere but to date the penguins have been making an appearance.
    And our plan is to cheer for the Full, leaning towards the inside of Epcot.
