It will probably be in the 50's when we start, but it quickly warms up once the sun comes up.

The time before the race will be even cooler. This year, it was in the mid- to upper-40's when the race began, but in the hour or more people had to wait around before the official start it was in the upper 30's. As you said, though, once you start running and the sun comes up, it warms up fast!

So a gal from Arizona only doing the 5k will freeze ~ I better plan for a warm costume!

Ditto this! I always warm up after the first mile. Though waiting before the races is when I'm chilly!
I always get a zip-up hoodie from Goodwill for my races. I wear it before the start and for the first mile and then I toss it on the side of the road.

I noticed the Saturday was colder than Sunday last year. I was ok when I left the room, but when we were waiting for the start it seemed like the temp dropped. It could have been the same Sun, there's just less people huddled together for the 5k. I was wearing my Smee costume- cut off sweats, a 3/4 sleeve top and a red beanie. But like everyone's said ~ once you start going you warm up.

Which is why I would definitely not be surprised if they did, but I personally see it happening more in 2015 than in January. I could very easily be wrong but why would they create the extra hassle of adding an event after people have already started to register and pay. We'll just have to see. I wouldn't mind being wrong (except for the fact I wouldn't be able to afford another challenge right now, lol) and I definitely want to see more events over here. They're definitely taking their time to announce it if there is one. DDD was announced about 1 month before registration opened, and we've just passed that mark for Tink.

I am! I'm registered for DDD and a friend is joining me for the 10k. I got the crazy idea to register for the GSC so I registered for Tink to keep my legacy status but I'm going crazy waiting to see if there will be a 10k and challenge.

Way to go! I'm getting antsy about being able to register, period. I want to keep my legacy status as well, but there's no way I could afford going to WDW for the Princess so pre-registration for me just aint happening, lol. Guess we'll just have to wait and see about the 10K but I don't understand for the life of me why they would announce something like that after people have already registered.

I agree. It seems crazy. I'm crazy making the trip to WDW because I'm so bust at work then, but this is becoming an addiction! I will have to look for you when we are there.

Would love to see you again! Maybe even meet a few more fellow DIS runners while I'm at it. I'm taking a few more days off work this time, hopefully. But addiction is right. Thankfully my wallet stops me from signing up for everything I want to.

At least it's a "healthy" addiction, right?
