I'll be very proud of myself if I can achieve that.
I am still the short fat girl who never ran in gym class, finished 2 1/2's, 2 5k's, 2 10k's and 1 8k this past year. And another year is just beginning.

We love Bee Cause charms--I have 5 of them on my shoes! We bought a few at the expo over the last couple of years and have gotten several specially made. I need to get a 6th because its bugging me that my shoes are uneven!

Having it on your shoe....does it bother you in races or even training ??? Just wondering ?
No, they don't bother me. The only thing I ran into was getting one on elastic laces was tricky! There was one pair that was just too big to fit through the hole, but I eventually got them on the shoes.

Yes, I NEED to get the vinyl for the race now. I love the little medal you can add.

Speaking of fairy dust, I uploaded a pic of my youngest daughter's shirt for the 400m that says "I'm Fairy Fast" on the front and "Eat My Dust" if anyone wants to check that out: http://www.crowdrise.com/shotlife/fu...er/cindylevin/
Cute shirt!!

Maybe I'll just get one "powered by pixie dust" heart and we'll make a big deal of handing it off to the next person to race...the 5K, the 400m, and the 13.1 Like Dumbo's magic feather?
I am pretty sure at the Expo last year I bought 2/$20, so you might want to wait and see what they have there.

I started running with C-to-5K and proudly made it up to a very slow 30 minutes of steady running. After learning about Galloway's run-walk method I quickly switched and noticed big improvements on my overall time.

I've been playing with intervals and have realized that no matter how long/short I make my intervals, I perform best using a 1:1 minute run:walk method. It keeps me from being bored or slowing too much but isn't too much to tire me out.

So my question is: Is this totally impractical for race day?

I'm worried I'll be stop/starting too much and will get in people's way. Are there any other 1:1 people out there who are planning on this method come February?

Sent from my iPhone using DISBoards
I also am doing 1:1. I am trying to work up to 2:1, but have had some foot/heel/shoe issues, so I am behind in training. From what I have read and observed in the 5k last year, there will be areas of bottlenecks where many are stuck walking. I plan on staying to the side, so hopefully it won't be a big deal. I know there are MANY, MANY walk/runners in the race.

I was wondering if we have to eat the race and race retreat costs or can I sell them to another hopeful runner?

I didn't know where to look and I thought that someone may know here.

Thanks!

( and I completed 9 miles in 1.45 this weekend!!!)
Officially you can not sell your bib/retreat or you run the risk of Disney banning you. Call RUNDisney and ask them if you can postpone your entry. I can't think of the "word" now, but they have let injured people credit the $$ to another race. They haven't offered it on all races, so they might say no.

On the race retreat you could sell that off, just swap funds for the bracelet.

Thanks for the answers on the bib guys.

I kinda thought we were just going to eat the cost of the bib and that's ok. He wants to walk the 5k now!

The disney stuff is a regular register and they take cards, most vendors take credit cards as well. Some vendors have a minimum for charging and some have cash deals too. We buy gu there so we don't have to bring it from home.

Hi Girls...and Guys, do you know when they announce the Corrals? Is it like a month before the race? I'm super anxious. Training is going good other than a mild case of shin pain, I'm using KTTape and a Zensah sleeve for it and they really do help.

4 weeks out you usually get your waivers which has your corral :-)

The waivers won't have corral letters, just bib #s. But for the past year RD has posted on their FB page a graphic of where those bib#s fall in the corrals, saves them the phone calls asking.

thank you...I'm at a 14mm pace and I really want to stop for a picture with the Princes (Eric, Naveen, Ryder, Tarzan,etc) I'm just hoping I'm not in the last corral (althought I'm almost 100% I will be). My second stop for pictures would be the Girl Villains (Cruella, Maleficent, Step SIsters) but that's depending on how I'm doing. After that I won't stop again, only for Tiana since she's the princess I chose.

I'll be doing the same thing. I have to walk the first 1-2 miles -- no running. I have plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. I have to walk through it to get used to it enough to run (although the walk from the tent to the corral may suffice). Then, I rotate between a 1:1, 2:1 to 3:1 ratio.

My plan is to stay on the shoulder, so that I am out of the way of the people who are running.

I know that I won't have time for pictures. I am just hoping to finish....

Anyone ever try running with a wig? I'm trying to decide whether to run in a Merida costume. I have a Northface running skirt and tank that are the perfect color and found $1 knee socks at Target (thanks for the idea Tinkeramy!) that match to use as arm sleeves. Question is whether I put on my daughter's Merida wig and a soft woven brown belt.... or just forget about a costume and go for comfort.
