Checking in. Haven't had much time for any kind of training. Thankfully Cross country season ends next week, and I have a month until Indoor Track starts.
Went to Target today and picked up a running hat and running gloves. I've decided to hit the outdoor trail as much as I can to keep the body accustomed to running outside. The treadmill is too cushy.

In case anyone hasn't seen them, Jeff Galloway has made some training plans available on the Disney site:

As for me, I'm more of a walker than a runner, but depending on how I enjoy the Jan 5K, I may try for the 2013 Princess Half!

I'm planing on the Princess 1/2 for 2013. I haven't started training (or doing anything) yet. I just discovered the race within the last week and decided it was a great goal to get healthy. I have about 50 lbs to lose that have crept up on me in the last 5 years. I've never been much on exercise, but that medal looks so shiny and princessy that it motivates me to get off my butt and try something new. I also have C25K on the ready and as soon as I kick this chest cold I picked up at WDW last week, I will get started.

I'm happy to have found you and this thread!

My tentative training plan is built around the idea of first 5King at Marathon weekend. At this point I'm able to do it in the 45 minutes they suggest to avoid being swept.

After Marathon weekend, I want to add weight training in the hopes of being able to go over the darn wall at the Everest Challenge.

And then it's on to training for the Marathon weekend and princess halfs!!!!

(although DH husband doesn't know I want to to both the Marathon weekend AND the Princess half in 2013. I figure I'll let him in on that AFTER Everest.)

I am running very slowly so that I can last the whole # of minutes for that week. This is what the folks at my group have advised anyway. Seems to be working. As for diet, I am trying to cut down on portions to start, and cut out my night time snacking (well, snack-food-free-for-all LOL). That is THEE worst time for me...I put the girls to bed and then, oh wow, there's a whole bag of cookies left??? mmmmm LOL This is just a start. I only started my big 'change' 3 weeks ago. I have lost 6.5 lbs! i have tried every diet out there, all the quick fixes. Now i seem to be saying to myself "running feels better than that cookie tastes". I know that if I don;'t lose a significant amount of weight, I won't last through a 1/2. So here goes!!
Congrats on that change! I think it's a lot more impactful to consider it a "lifestyle change" rather than a diet, too. I've been running on and off for the past two years and gradually built up from the C25k to 5k to 10k to half marathon, and never would have thought I'd get this far. I ran/walked the half (but completed!), and that totally motivated me to want to run the entire thing, so am now looking through some training plans for a half marathon for 2012. I also started to eat better, happily stopped craving the junk I used to eat and felt antsy when I couldn't get my runs in - all a total shift from how I used to operate. It was a total rewiring of my system. Best thing I ever did for myself health-wise.

Anyway, I think your decision to run the Princess is awesome - good luck! - and thanks for starting this thread!

Throwing my hat in for the 2013 Princess Half. I am a total couch potato right now, but my SIL started running this year and when she found out that Disney did races she asked me if I would do one with her. If there is anything that would entice me to run, it is a Disney trip! So I need to get out there and get started. I have a bunch of weight to lose, so I'm looking at this as a year to change my whole life.

I'm in! I will be 40 next May, and really happy about some changes I have been making. Still have quite a bit of weight to lose - have been enjoying running since I started in June. Have lost about 23# so far, and have finished 2 5Ks - one in September and one in October. Am running one on January 1st, and the DW January 5k.

Going to work up to the 1/2!

Yay us1

ugh haven't started the running portion of my training but I now have a job a a dog walker so I walk at least 4 miles a day just for my job. Hopefully i can run this winter, and the snow gods will bless me and it wont be as bad here in MA as it was last year so I can.

As for eating right, i'm using my jaw surgery (today eek!) as a chance to restart my healthy eating. I have way too big a sweet tooth.

My goal is to run the Princess in 2013. The goal was originally 2012 but we got a wonderful surprise and I will be 8.5 months pregnant for the 2012 race. Not going to happen.
