That's a great idea! Think I'll spoil my chEar squad and get them all extra gift cards. It'll be long after midnight before I get there!

The DH and I usually get up early (at least for me!) on the weekends and try to get the miles in before it gets TOO steamy. We make sure to bring the key to our community pool and jump in at the end of the run, clothes and all!

I'm so happy to have finally found this thread!

We signed up last week! Second W&D here! First was in 2011 and had already planned our 2012 trip (Disney wedding) around the assumption W&D would be the same weekend, only to be replaced by ToT! Super excited!

Sadly, i have to bail on the W&D this year. Dopey is going to take my W&D budget and then some. Its tough because W&D is my favorite, but Dopey sounds too crazy to pass up.

I'm trying to get my mind set to run this race...see it would be perfect. It is on my 40th birthday. What better way to celebrate 40 by running a half AT Disney World? I'm a total couch potato right now, though, so I've got to get busy.

I see registration only moved up from 61% to 65% this week. I wonder if the WDW Marathon Weekend registration opening will draw some attention away for a while.

So excited for my first W&D! I signed up for this race in lieu of Marathon weekend in 2014. Then Disney goes and offers all sorts of new races... the restraint I am exercising as registration opens today is more challenging than the marathon itself! Dreaming of November...

Come on over.... you actually have a very good half marathon and marathon in early December. Starts at the Mall (nonexistent when I attended) and moves up into Bryan then back along Welborne and through campus. Last year was doubly exciting as it was the day after the Heisman.

The Jeff Galloway training guide says to train for a temperature of 60 degrees F. Is that what the temperature was previous years?

Thanks for posting that Coach!! I didn't realize they had a marathon there!! Good reason to go back and visit again! The mall was there when we were, but unfortunately we weren't runners back then! When we visited the campus this summer, we saw so many places we would have enjoyed running there! We might just have to sign up for this one!!

Good luck to you! I admire anyone with the fortitude to take it on!

Me too! I think I may be more excited about the kids free weekend than the actual race. First half for us too.
