This nice older man gave him a peppermint and you'd think it was a million dollars for how excited he was.

DS7 did a 5K turkey trot this past November and they both do the 1 mile runs at school. I have both of them signed up for the kids one mile and DS3 is doing the dash (I think it's 100m for his age group but might be 200m). I am hoping to sign all 3 of them up for the Neverland 5K next year when I run the Tink but I also try to keep it fun so I only take them when they ask to go. Or I'll say "Mommy's going on a fun run. Who wants to come with?" In the summer, I get a lot of takers. In the winter, not so much. But they know if we go to the track and they are good, I'll let them stop in the jump room before we leave, so that's some motivation.
I may bring my 5year old to the indoor track to see how she would like it.
In July there is a kids race, Sundowner 5K and Kids Race
I may enter them in that.

My DD runs track, which was one of the reasons I started running. She does the 100 m, 200 m, 400 m, 800 m, and long jump.

Here she is, in the blue, turning it on to pull out a win.


And here she is long jumping. Her longest jump this past season was 9'2" & she was only 7.



And just because it's cute, her she is in her team uniform.

Didn't feel bad otherwise and thinking not enough water the day before and before the run or is there something else to take while running? I had a shotblock, water and gatorade on my running belt so willing to try other options.
My fingers swell like sausages sometimes and I find if I bend my arms for a little bit every now and then instead of just letting my hands hang down that helps.

PF is flared up big time and I'm super worried about Princess next month...I'm sure ill finish, but probably feelin like this again. It's a lot of my own fault though! I'd love to keep my legacy status and do it again next year...I really like this race! We had a few muscle numbing drinks over at Trader Sam's and now we're strolling California Adventure with our medals until its dinner time...ADR at the new Carthay Circle that I'm really excited about! Keep it goin' Princesses, we're so close!!!
Congrats on finishing!! Hope you're feeling less sore today. You have plenty of time to recoup before the Princess.

She is cute I don't have kids and never realized they had track for young kids. That's awesome.


I got Mickey Mail this weekend -- my Magical Express voucher and those yellow luggage stickers.

I have a question for those who have been to the Expo before. I've been looking at compression socks/calf sleeves for awhile now and I was wondering if I should wait until the Expo. Do the vendors sell stuff at the regular prices or are there sales/discounts/specials? thanks

Hi all,

I've been lurking on this thread but I think it's finally time to jump in. I'll be doing the PH and run/walking and I'm pretty nervous about finishing, but also really excited. I'm staying at the BC with my fam but running solo. Any other solo runners on here? I had a team but they dropped out.

Looking forward to getting to know you over the next five weeks!

Liv

Greetings to everybody! I will be going to WDW for the princess marathon weekend. Being a guy, I am not doing the half marathon (my sister is)... But I want to do the Royal Family 5k! I want to wear a Disney themed costume for the race. Is anybody else planning on dressing up? Thanks, and I hope everybody's training is going well!

Definitely do it! The rare benefit of the indoor track is they can jump in where they can and sit out a lap or so when they need to.

Have you already signed up for the 5K? Because I heard that it was sold out! TONS of people dress up, so you would definitely not be alone.

I did it! We're signed up for the 2013 Double Dare! I even saved $10 using the DVC discount code. It opens to the general public at noon tomorrow-- I wonder what % full it will be when registration opens.

Are you on any of the FB groups?

There are a lot of us going down solo or just running solo.
