    Yay! I'm glad I pushed you to create the thread!

    I'll be there for the 10K, my husband is running the Challenge (I lost legacy this year thanks to the ankle from hell)

    Hee hee, thanks for the push!

    Just so everyone knows, I'm lousy at this, though: don't count on me to be making any lists of DISers going or anything. If anyone else wants to do extras like that, please feel free! I can always edit the first post to add links to other posts, as needed. :thumbsup2

    I'm booked with a travel agent for the challenge + 5k for my husband and I and 5k only for my daughter. I was waiting to see what was going to happen with the Light Side because I really want that Kessel medal but I gave in and booked anyway.

    <--- used the Past Participants link to re-up for Dark Side Challenge #3! The $10 discount should buy me an expo beer. ;)
    I'm sure I'll eventually add the 5K, but my credit card needs a breather first...

    I'm running the half so I can maintain legacy status and I might run the 5k with DS10. He had such a great time this year.

    The good thing about running only the 10K means I don't have to limit my drinking for the weekend!

    Not sure if I will be maintaining my legacy status, but I will follow the thread just in case.

    I'll be in for the challenge to maintain legacy (for whatever that's worth! :teeth:) and possibly the 5K with DH again if he's up for it. Thanks for starting the thread, I didn't get the early registration link (never get those emails), so I've calendared APH registration.

    I'm planning to do the challenge as the second half of my Kessel Run if they ever open Light Side registration! May end up doing the 5K as well as I have Florida family who is talking about doing it. But three races this year at Princess nearly killed me, so I'm not sure about that.

    DH and I are in for all three races next year. runDisney is spot on sending Thank You emails with links to early registration. It's the first time I've seen DH register for anything online...ever! ;)

    And thank you for starting the 2018 Thread!!!!

    Thanks for starting the thread PrincessV! I signed up with the past runner link for the 5K and half, also to retain legacy status!

    Missed out on this year's races due to a conflicting trip. Really hoping to get back next year.

    I received the link too. Haven't fully decided whether to do this one again....but I don't think I will be able to stop myself! The Princess half and this half are at expensive times to visit Disney World as they fall in the time period of Winter and Spring school breaks. But Legacy would be a good thing. Right??

    I talked a friend into doing the 5k so we're hoping to make it in for that... also trying for the 10k solo
    It'll be my first weekend outside Wine and Dine (did the 10k in 16 and signed up for this years 10k in nov)

    DH and I are hoping to stay legacy on the half. I haven't bit the bullet and signed up yet with the early registration link. We may all do the 5k again, but haven't decided. DD was miserable on so little sleep.
