A half is a big deal!! Congrats!! I'm one of the nuts that did her first marathon & first goofy. If you train hard it can be done. I followed Galloway and my goal was to just finish. I did. I did have a few halfs under my belt and the half before the full was my 10th - not counting the training runs where I went longer.

Take it slow & follow a plan. I started base building again the month before the plan started. That helped too.

PS - does anyone know what the music was playing in EPCOT for the marathon? I liked that and would love to get my hands on it.

This was me last year. I did Tink and was crazy jealous of those who were walking around with their C2C. I started doing some research on Goofy training plans and I found so many people that said it is totally doable. Train for the marathon and throw in some back to back runs. I found the Galloway plan just to survive and I followed that. I liked it because the mid-week runs were easy to fit in to my schedule and I always did long runs on Saturdays while my better half was at work.

Make no mistake, it's a lot of training miles to run. But the feeling of completion is just awesome. I was getting choked up as I was running through Epcot and by the time I high fived Goofy at the finish line I had tears rolling down my face. A volunteer thought I was in pain (I was) and directed me to get an ice pack. But when I approached the smiling volunteer with the Goofy medals and he put it around my neck and said, "Congratulations!" it was all worth it. Shoot, my eyes are leaking now just thinking about it.

You can do it!!!!

Thanks for the replies! I know the half is a still an accomplishment, I just felt intimidated, I guess.

Our race reports. In short between some injuries and the heat we ended up somewhat slower than we had originally planned for.

The 1/2 just seemed very congested between the traffic, the walk from the bag check, and the start of the race. I am not sure if it is because we were earlier the next day, but we did not seem to have the same issues the next day.

Congrats to all of the finishers and thanks to all of the supporters & volunteers!

Was Goofy out there at the finish line? Someone wrote they high fived Goofy at the finish line...wish he was there when I crossed it...I guess Goofy was long gone by the time I crossed the finish line but it would have been so friggen cool to high five him.

I did high five Donald at the half finish and that was cool!

Were there any characters out when you finished? When I finished the half Mickey was out...Minnie was out for the full. The characters switch out every 30 minutes or so.

I got a hug from goofy and it was captured by the marathon photo fols, my bib number showed and I was anything but fast. Think it was luck and that they rotated...

I hugged Donald at the end of the Half and high fived Mickey as I crossed the finish line. Such a high for me as I picked the Half for my first bc of the Donald medal.

I was able to high-five Goofy at the finish of the full. Can't remember who I saw at the half...

I had Goofy right before finish line for the Half Marathon! I stopped for a picture since he was one of the only characters with *no* line the entire race At that point I was obviously going to finish, I didn't care about adding an extra 30-60 seconds to my time lol.
