We have changed our dates...and in the process knocked 42 days off our wait!

Originally we had planned 10/30-11/7 but we have changed to 9/18-9/26!

Its still months away but it feels good to knock that many days off at once!

Hi! Can I join?

This is my first attempt at running, much less a half marathon. But I'm determined to do it!

I'm booked at BCV right now from Friday the 21st through Monday the 24th, but I will probably change that at 7 months out if I can.

Right now I just have a plan to do the Princess half marathon. Nothing else yet.

Congrats on running your first race - how exciting! You're booked at BCV - where do you want to stay?

I'll get you added to the list. If you do end up changing resorts, just post and I'll get ya updated. Jump on in and join the conversation!

So I noticed our original january dates fall in marathon weekend (9-12) is it very busy? Should I really consider later in the month? We would be considering the 4-11- but could also do a later week in Jan (value points w DVC...)


Suggestions?

Hopefully someone else will come along and be able to help, but our experience with marathon weekend wasn't too bad. We left later Saturday so we weren't there the whole time, but the day before (well, the whole week before) the parks didn't seem to be affected at all. The only thing I noticed was the food court was a good bit more crowded that Friday before (we were at sports that trip). Overall January has low crowds so I would think that even with marathon crowds it would still be okay.
