I registered back when registration first opened at the urging of a bunch of coworkers. As of this week, i am coming off a marathon finish and they havent even started training. Well, a couple can struggle through a 5k. I mighf be going it alone.

At least it gives me something to focus on. 2012 was about finishes, 2013 is about increasing speed and improving time.

Are you seeded? I had a bad running year so I am green AGAIN! One year I will make it into the red corral!
I am trying for a top 10% finishers hat this year. I just missed it last year and desperately want one this year. Fingers crossed.

You could be seeded! I think up to 12mpm is seeded. If you have a time call first place sports and get in a corral!! Unseeded is a nightmare at the Gate. All you need is 5k or more race in the past year with a chip time.

I downloaded the Goofy results in a spreadsheet and ran an average.
I am working on the half and full now and will hopefully have something up in a few days that you can download.

Ahhh....makes sense, because that is not available anywhere. Thanks, will look forward to the averages for the other races too.

A bit slower than I had planned but I definitely slowed down with the heat, and did stop to ride Everest! Where else can you hop on a roller coaster in the middle of a marthon. Princess half is awesome and the full is just as awesome! I'm already thinking about Goofy next year. My biggest problem is my bank account. I really need to win the lottery!

And I'm going to sign up for the New Jersey Marathon this May! I figure I'm already trained, just need to maintain.
I ran the Disney full last week having only ever run 2- 1/2s the princess 2012 and the Wine n Dine in 2012- If I can do it you can do it- corral placement is key if you want to enjoy picture stops- I am heavily considering going Goofy for 2015! I am plannning to do a few more 1/2s this year as well-

Hi guys, lurker here. I just wanted to thank you for all of your (unknown) help.

I ran Goofy for the first time this year, and the Full was my first Marathon. To say I was nervous was an understatement but I really appreciated all of the tips and tricks you all shared. It was nice to know I wasn't alone! Running the marathon was an awesome experience. I'm not sure if I'll do another, though I have to admit, the temptation to try again to see how I do without a Half the day before and in lower temperatures is definitely there. Just not sure if I want to go through all the training again quite yet.

I also had a question. I am seriously kicking myself for not buying a short-sleeved marathon tech tee now. I guess I didn't want to jinx myself. Anyhow, I'm stalking ebay like crazy but also wanted to find out if you know if World of Disney was willing to ship things? I called their number today but it said they were closed (which was odd), but I'll try again tomorrow. But I figured you guys may be more seasoned than me at this stuff. I'm in Pennsylvania so it would be hard for me to get down there anytime soon to buy one in person.

It is a great race, it is the US championships so it is the largest 15K in the US. It has a great expo, a fun kids 1 mile run, beer, lots of fun!

Will be my first go around. I started running years ago just so I could run the race. Some how, I have always been sick or injured every year.

So far so good.

I am feeling the post race let down now. I need to find a new goal race. I could say its only January and I did my goal race.

I wish Disney was in my future but the finances aren't there for a few more years.

Has anyone seen/heard from Coach?

Yeah WWoS isn't super easy to get ahold of. Alternately, you can try emailing them...
Something you can also do is google the numbers for Character Warehouse - the outlet that gets all the Disney leftovers. They had some Marathon Weekend stuff in stock last year when we were down there for the Princess, so they should be getting stuff fairly soon. They will ship.

Team Mickey at Downtown Disney has some race stuff leftover - but not much. I was able to get a Donald 1/2 marathon keychain (looks similar to the medal) and a Goofy "I did it!" shirt.
