I didn't have to specify a location so does that mean we could go anywhere? Thanks for your answer

I always thought it was DW - Disney Wife, DD - Disney Daughter, DH - Disney Husband, DS - Disney Son, but I guess it could be whatever you want it to be

The Command considers us a bunch of losers. But we’re gonna do it right this time, ’cause we’re the best. If we don’t... We’ll be drummed out of the corps.

Went to go book and register... Was told that all of the All-Stars were booked solid for our dates. Bummed, because I didn't think we'd be able to afford a mod (even though I love CBR) for a 6 night stay. The CM told me that this morning they decided on-the-fly to add Pop, PO, Poly, and I think she said another resort as well because the All-Stars were almost at 100% capacity before registration for this race even opened.

Anyway, was excited Pop was back in play as a host hotel because I hate the All-Stars, but she said the RunDisney allotted rooms were totally booked Friday and Sat, but she'd give us a room discount because of the confusion over the hotels and that it would apply for the whole stay. On a lark, had her price CBR for the same window, which she said had plenty of availability still, and with that sweet 20% off extended stay deal on top of the RunDisney discount, we got our rooms at CBR for $300 less then Pop.

Mod hotel, DDDP, 6 days, for cheaper then Pop? Yes please!

So... I'm officially registered!

I exercised soooo much restraint.

I waited until 12:13 to register. Staying at the Boardwalk because I got a good deal through a travel agent and now I'm really excited to go! This is my favorite Disney race, I loved it last year and can't wait to stay in EPCOT again until 4am with my creme brulee and pretzel from Germany... It'll also be my sister's first half!

Hey, i am trying to convince the hubs we need to go...has anyone priced out the park tickets? The race website said save up to 40% on park tickets, just wondering if I can justify.....and I know this will help. OK, I am the runner, he and the princess can come for the fun! Thanks for any help you can give my cost analysis husband.

I'm registered, and I'm so excited. And they included my beloved Pop! So I'm booked in there, and more pumped than ever about this trip. Bring on November!

On another note, how's training going, everybody?

Mine is going great... As I said earlier on this thread (I think?) I went straight into the training program for half-marathons and, while I could do it, I was sloppy. So I hit the reset button and just started on week 1 conditioning. Part of me felt so odd to step off the treadmill 10 minutes after getting on it when I could run a solid 20-30 minutes, like I was cheating on the training. I kept telling myself a great 10 minutes is far more productive towards training then a sloppy 30 minutes... But I felt so guilty.

Now I'm, I think, 14 days in (my calendar is in the other room, I'm not sure the exact days in I am), and I've hit several PR's, and instead of my disgusting runs where I'd need days off to rest, I can now do runs every-other day with strong walks between them and maintain pace, good form, and not finish feeling like I was hit by a truck. So utterly proud of myself.

That's awesome, Tropical Wilds! I know EXACTLY where you're coming from. I was doing long runs on my own, but I have some pretty specific needs (I'm a bariatric surgery patient, so things like carb loading are a total bust and gus and gels sometimes make me sick) so i stepped back and started at the beginning. I started working with someone who trains like a beast and has a few Ironmans under her belt (as well as a gastric bypass patient) who has made all of the sifference in the quality of my training. I hated starting over, but my form and the quality of my fuel and runs is vastly improved.

I am still working on Jeff Galloway's Easy 5k time improvement app. I ran a full 5k tonight for the Run Rock Shamrock Virtual 5k and I did it in 39:12, my best time ever. That's 3 full minutes less than my 5k time about 4 weeks ago when I started the JG app (and I have been using it loosely, only twice a week some weeks because of COLD weather, broken treadmill and a busy schedule). In a month I am going to start building beyond the 5-10k distance. I've been doing run 2 walk 1 but bumped it up tonight to run 2.5 walk 1. Trying to watch form, stride length and use of core and thigh muscles to reduce shin splints. All in all, so far so good!

Well, I wasn't planning on it, didn't think my husband would budge, and have another half in another state 2 weeks before, but I'm officially registered for Wine and Dine!
