I will be signing up for the goofy before the price increase 6/19... still thinking about the W&D to make it 3 in a row, but will most likely sign up

My DP wants to make my signature race be the W&D. I can't really argue as it would ensure a trip to WDW at least once a year.

I have recently started running again with a fellow co-worker. Our goal is to do the marathon in Jan 2014. We are also planning a trip to Disney around the same time. He and his partner have never been and I am so excited to share it with him.
Would love to do the one in Sept. also eventually.

Hey everyone! How's training going for you all?

It's absurdly hot out during the day (105+ most days), so I've been doomed to either 5am or 11pm runs after 8 hours of work. Ugh. Not a morning person. Super psyched that it's under the 90day day mark for ToT!

Officially signed up for the Goofy this weekend.

This was week 2 of the Galloway training plan for the Goofy. Using it to try and take it easy on the knees after injury. So far so good. My time has not been sacrificed by the walking and my legs and knees have felt great so far.

Have my dining reservations for the first part of the week. Weekend reservations hit 180 tomorrow.

Now I just need to figure out where I am gonna stay. LOL


Only 7 weeks til the Disneyland Half!!!!!

Happy and Healthy running to all!

My DP gave up on Marathon Weekend 2013 this past week.

But I am still planning on it. Just need to bite the bullet and register.

One good thing about going solo, I'm not as high maintenance. I don't demand DVC or Deluxe. All Stars or Pop are good enough for me.

4 weeks to the Disneyland Half! I'm in Corral D which isnt too bad considering I am still running a little slow as my knees get back into running shape.

Hope everyone is taking it easy as they train through the heat. Did 6 miles this morning before it hit 104 up here in Portland today. really? They told be about the rain. No one said anything about the heat.

Keep the miles coming!

I'll be doing my first full marathon ever this January! I'm pretty pumped and nervous at the same time! Trying to train here in coastal Texas is brutal, but it's happening! I'm also taking my lady friend with me for a 9 day vacation and she has never been to any Disney park! Hard to believe, but that just makes me even more excited!

My friend and I are holding each other accountable long-distance. We are starting with the Couch-to-5K program and my goal is to eventually work up to run the Walt Disney World Marathon! Then I can finally complete the other pupil of my Daruma doll from the Japan pavilion at Epcot (Anyone know what I'm talking about?). I've tried this before and fallen off the wagon, but I am determined to follow through this time! Week 1 begins tomorrow. Hopefully posting this online will hold us accountable too.

Here we go!

I hope everyone's training is going well. All this heat in SoCal is making it not fun at all to start packing on the miles. At least, as they say, "it's a dry heat."

I am looking forward to my first ever Disney race this January, and to maybe meeting some other DISers there in WDW for marathon weekend.

Jiminy...am really excited to continue reading your posts about your training progress. Keep it up! One weekend, you'll find yourself running 10 miles, and not even understanding how you made it that far. Enjoy the journey! Like planning a trip to WDW, all the build up and planning is half of the fun!

My plantar fasciitis flared up a month or so ago, so I've had to do a lot of biking and other low-impact stuff rather than running. I only just started running again, and I'm taking it pretty easy to see if my feet have healed.

Interestingly enough, my PF flared up when I stopped running all the time in Vibrams and started mixing in power walks in regular trainers. When I started running in Vibrams a couple of years ago, my PF symptoms (as well as knee pain) pretty much disappeared.

Just a few more days until the Tower of Terror 10 Miler and Halloween 5K.

I'm doing this race with a couple of friends. Even though I consider myself slow, I know they will finish after me by a considerable amount of time. Should I just go to the party and keep track of them through RaceTracker and meet them after they finish or wait around the finish line to watch them cross? (One of the pair is doing her first long distance event.)
