I just walk now.

Welcome Mark! How is Your Better Half doing with her running? Is she still working at it?

I've started looking at Jeff's training and it looks good. There is so many training program out there it's hard to settle on one. Might as well go for the one that Disney tells me to use!

I know I won't be able to squeeze in any more Disney trips for running, but I know I'll be looking for some around home to keep me motivated!

Baby steps Tim. Trace out a 5k (3.1 mile) course. Much easier! Worry about the 13.1 later.

If your life wasn't in such disarray right now, this would be very tempting.

I didn't buy the app... but I did bookmark the page. Does that count?

I don't eat horribly, but I know if I'm running 20 miles a week I WILL be losing some weight.

WOW! I didn't even realize that was going on while we are going to be there.

$155 dollars to run in a 5K? Seems a little pricy. I never looked at the price for the Jan. 1/2. I wonder if we will be paying that much... or more?

Can you walk faster than a 16 minute mile?

Ooooh, a joint PTR! Yay! Hmm, it seems like there's quite a few men here, time to add a little estrogen then.

What a fantabulous reason to return to Disney...a marathon? I'll never understand all of you exercising people. I thought Disney was where you go to vacation? Running 13.1 miles doesn't sound as relaxing as sipping on a dolewhip at the MK.

Tim, I loved your intro. even if you sorta, kind of, sounded a like a teenage girl obsessing about her weight. Just kidding! I think it's wonderful that you want to take control of your health. I really do! Great family pics as well! I forget but did you mention if Mel and the kids are coming too or is this strictly a marathon thing?

Ok, so who's this Barry fella then? I've seen his posts around, he sounds like an instigator. I can see why he's your nemesis then Timmy.

Barry, I hope you can overcome your siren call of the "deep fryer" then to outrun, outlast, outplay Tim. Your intro was great, not as girly as Tim's of course but I loved it! Your kiddos are beautiful and honestly, they are a great motivation to be healthy (I say that from experience). Good luck to you!

So apparently we have to choose sides then? Boy, it's like being back in gym class and there's only two left to be picked for dodgeball! I'll reserve my "side" until I see how well you boys train up in the next few months!

Cool sneakers Tim! Though for some odd reason they remind me of Star Wars. Weird.

Wow, great post. Cheap shots taken at both of them!

You can just join me in my effort to antagonize both of them equally until an adequate bribe is sent my direction to gain my loyalty. I personally think it is more fun this way.

I know the entry fee isn't exactly cheap for the 1/2 marathon, but I figure I'll just budget into the cost of the trip.

Hey now! The Rocky/Mickey thing is between me and CJ. You can have Ivan Drago and his team of scientists.

No, Monday will probably work better. That way I have more motivation to no slack off on the weekend.

"instigator" huh? Well, I've been called worse. But I've never been called a teenage girl obsessing about her weight.

I bet they even light up and make the lightsaber "swooshing" sound when he runs.

Well, I'm a firm believer in treating everyone equally and fairly.

Thanks! That's my plan. Keep them guessing, I like the way you think. It's much more fun to annoy, isn't it? Let them work for our favor, then we'll see who wants to win badly enough! Oops, did I say that aloud?

That was my thought on the Galloway program too.

Giving up cheese is any form should NEVER be an option.

The App is nice because it propts you when to run/walk over your iPod. Plus it keeps track of your distance and splits.

It's $50 for the 5K. $155 is for the half
