Woohoo!! I'm in with y'all! We decided we're going to make a weekend out of it. DH will do the 5K, kids will each do the mile, and I'm going half for the 2nd year in a row! I am SO excited! I will be running it alone this year (had a friend coach me through last year), so hopefully I can meet up with some of you Wisher's for a great race!!

And to all of you who will be doing this as your first half - it will get you hooked! Last years was my 1st (and thus far only) half, but I've gotten even more into running since then, so I'm super excited to be going this one again! I think I'm also going to head to the Princess Half in February!

We are booked for AoA from wednesday til Monday and DW is super stoked. Bringing the inlaws and nieces and all! Can't wait!

Does anyone run while on vacation at Disney? I brought my stuff because I really wanted to stick to my running plan for the 10 miler in May and didn't run once! We were either at the parks all day or I have to admit the 3x we went back to the room, I napped right next to my 5 year old!

I usually do, but I'll go before we hit the parks in the morning. It's easier for us though as the time difference means I'm often up silly early at first so there's time to burn before rope drop. I'm always amazed by how many other runners/walkers are up and about at 6am when on vacation.

I usually make it a point to run once or twice. I get up in the morning and go. It's awesome to explore the resorts on foot in the early morning.

The DH and I run every time we go to WDW . We'll get up and run before going to the parks so it's done for the day and not crowded everywhere. We do however take it easy on the mileage as we know we'll be on our feet the rest of the day! And it never surprises me how many people are up and about in the morning running, especially around the loop at the Boardwalk.

Snelldog, I was cringing as I read that race report. Wtg.

I don't like hills. At. All.

Another early riser who runs. We usually stay at BLT and running past the MK early in the AM is really nice. It feels so good getting back to my room in time to wake up the kids.
