Thanks for the info. I walk every day but need to continue building up my miles. I have tried to get some of my friends to do this but they will not. I told them they will miss out. I hope my husband can handle watching this. He was supportive when I did the biggest looser 5k in Myrtle Beach the other year. Again, thanks for the tip

If you want to can check out my blog (which I had to put in when I registered so you can probably find it), as I am totally new to all this but super enthused. My treadmill will arrive this Saturday!

I'm in too! I started training at the end of January and just did a March of Dimes March for Babies last weekend. I did 8.6 miles in 3 hours. I know it's nowhere near that 15mm pace I need for the Princess, but it's a dern good starting point!

Hi Ladies or I should say fellow Princesses ......

I noticed a couple of new runDisney items at the Disney Store.com. I really can't wait to register for the race. This will be my first time doing the Princess 1/2. I am wondering if they will be doing something extra special since it will be the 5th year having this race ??? For the 5th year of the DL 1/2 we had a special medal and bibs. I guess we will have to wait and see.

Add me please!

Hi everyone! I posted in the other thread before I saw this one. I just started running but I'm planning to be in the Princess 1/2 next year. As of right now I think I will be going it alone, with my DH cheering me on at the finish.

This is what I hope for. Disney by far has some of the best medals around.
I really hope they have some nice commerative race swag.

I'm also running alone. DH and son will be somewhere along the course cheering me on too. They will also sign up for the chEAR Squad.

I ran it alone this year, and let me say, I never felt lonely!! My mom was so worried I'd feel lonely or alone, but there are so many supportive women out there cheering you on and you cheering them on, and striking up small convos', etc.

Special shout-out to the ladies I ventured into the woods with when we all had to pee really bad right before mile 1 We became very good squatting friends lol!!

Oh and when my phone went off and it was my Uncle Joe on the phone, and I was ending the call yelling "I love you Uncle Joe" and about 10 ladies around me yelling "we love him too!!"

I read about the chEAR Squad a while back and completely forgot about it. Yep, DH will be signing up for that too.

That's good to know.

I think I would rather venture into the woods than use those PortoPotties.
I swear I have a phobia of those. I really need to find out where ALL the real bathrooms are along the course. I hope we are allowed to use them when we are inside the MK. I am not familiar at all with WDW like I am DL.

I used real bathrooms in Fantasyland next to Cosmic Rays and it was sooo
Nice to be able too. You also could use it at TTC before entering the park.

I used the real potties in Tomorrow Land right across from the speedway. Actually I ducked into the men's room since there was a line for the ladies room. there were a few guys in there, but I just kept my head down and ran into a stall. There is a large bathroom as you head into Frontier Land.
