I'll be doing the Jingle Jungle 5K. Training for my first 5K right now. Really looking forward to running in Disney!

They do switch host resorts, but I do not see them adding AoA. The resort will have been open just over a year and I think they will be banking on the newness factor as a draw to fill the rooms, not host resort status. This is not as big of a race as during marathon weekend where all resorts across property act as host resorts.

I'm in! This will be my second Disney run after the Princess in a few weeks. I'm trying to talk DH into training and if I succeed...it will be his first. VERY excited. I may have changed around my family(and extended family)vacation just for the race!

If you guys are slow pokes, then welcome to my world!

My husband and I are going to try the Wine and Dine this year. My only fear is that I am always "done" after the race. This year's half I barely managed to walk back to my car--my feet hurt!!

The "idea" of walking EPCOT after the race sounds so fun but the reality is probably quite different. My goal is to really get comfortable in the high mileage so that I'm not so worn out at the end of the race.

Started the Couch to 10k program today- even though I've done Halfs before (2 Tinks, DL, and San Francisco), I want to be able to finally run an entire Half with minimal walk breaks. Hopefully by San Francisco (assuming we get in again), but definitely by the Wine and Dine!!

I'm really looking forward in running my first half-marathon ever at Disney! Let the count down begin.

They need to hurry up and release the host resorts, I'm going bonkers! I've already booked us in for POR, but we won't have access to a car and are totally going to be at Disney transportation's mercy. If I need to change, I'd rather know in advance. I certainly don't want to be trying to hunt a cab at 2-3 am.

I doubt they release the host hotels until registration, but I agree that it would be nice to know much sooner. I booked my room using DVC in November. Worst case, if you are not staying at a host resort, they will have taxis at the front of Epcot after the race, but I would probably walk through the showcase and grab a cab from Beach Club.

I'm with you - I'd like to know as soon as possible! We made reservations at CBR, since that was listed as a host resort last year, so I'm hoping at least that resort will be one again this year. We'll have a car, but taking Disney transportation makes it so much easier, of course!

Wink Webpage

It seems like they are starting to get things organized at the webpage. It seems to me like last year the Host resorts and deals didn't come out until registration or even just after registration opened (we were thinking about going last year).

How is everyone doing with their training? I am feeling much more comfortable with my 2 and 1's. 5k is getting easier and a little quicker using this app.

I am starting training in one week. That is my goal! I had 5K down in August and for personal reasons stopped running then..so now I think I need to work myself back up....... hopefully my body 'somewhat' remembers what it used to be able to do!

Training is going well! I did a seven mile long run this morning. My muscles protested a little bit after, but I'm not hobbling so hooray!

It's chilly and windy here, but we're too far south to get much ice or snow. I think training in the winter here is ideal, so I'll be in pretty decent condition before the agonizing heat and humidity set it. Hopefully it'll clear up soon so you can get on the road!
