Run Disney?

Hi,
I'm new to this board. We are planning our first, ever trip to Disney World and cannot wait! We decided to go during Marathon Weekend (jan 2014) and participate in some of the races, and I was wondering if there are any threads or boards on this site dedicated to the Run Disney weekends?

Thanks!

Hi! Best of luck to you in the half marathon!!!! That is really awesome. Have you done one at Disney before?

My husband is doing the 10k -- he was psyched to get in to it! He's hoping to work up to half marathon and then marathon, but he's just doing 10k this year. He was a distance runner for years and is happy to get back to it.

I am doing the 5k. This is my first race ever. I've done other sports, but I'm new to running. I think it'll go well. I'm goal-oriented, so having a reason to run will keep me motivated

My kids are doing the 200m and 400m dash. they don't know about the trip yet. We're going to tell them soon. They are going to flip! They've been dying to go to Disney World for years now

this is my first disney race. i wanted to do it this year but every one was sold out. i made sure i got in. i want to do the coast to coast next year so that's my plan.

i've actually been training for the Hartford, CT Half Marathon in October. but this gives me even more reason
