Disney Runners

So since this weekend is marathon weekend at WDW I was wondering if anyone on here has ever done any of the Disney runs. I'm doing my first one in Sept and am planning a week long trip the same time.

So, any other runners? Did you dress up?

The one in September is just a ten mile night run. This weekend was a half and a full marathon.

Just got back from the Tinkerbell Half and Neverland 5K over the weekend in Disneyland. It was rather fun and most things went pretty well since this was the first time this race and course were done.

There were 12,000 who did the Tink, 920 were men.

It's all about the bling....

Seriously Todd? Only 920 out of 12,000? Less than 8% of the field?

Sometimes with you I can't tell when you are joking - at least on line. That's a pretty interesting statistic though.

Scouts honor. And statistically, there are fewer men, percentage-wise at the Princess Half. I think the 'surge' of males was the draw of a new course and the special inagrual medal. And I am quite certain most of those males would feel quite at home here in this forum.

Just finished the Army 10 Miler in DC. Holy tattoos, muscles, and buzz cuts. LOL

Was a great race and a cool way to see DC. Started and finished at the Pentagon. And the Army guys all along the course was just that special finishing touch. Hahaha.

Did a 15 miler last weekend. Feeling good about Goofy training at this point.

Run happy and healthy.

This isn't quite in the same class as the other posts, but I've decided to run the Castaway Cay 5K while I'm on a Disney cruise with my family this June. Way back when, I ran cross country in high school, but I haven't run more than 2 miles in a long time. Right now, I could run/walk a 5k, but my goal is to run the entire thing.

I think that it is more about the getting out and doing it than the distance. The Castaway Cay 5K is a fun one. I'm not sure I would be willing to do it in June though. I've done one in May and two in December. Be prepared to sweat more than you normally do. This past October, our plan was to do the 5K on deck 4, on the running track. However, Hurricane Sandy prevented that (and our stop at Castaway Cay) so we worked with Guest Relations and ran/walked one inside the ship. Got some strange looks from Crew Members and fellow guests, but it was a fun experience.
