Count me and DH in!

DH will be doing the Double Dare; he signed up at Pkg PkUp this past weekend at WDW

I'll be doing the 10K.

We'll be traveling with 7 other people; between us, we're running ALL the races! Now, for someone to watch our kids.........

Races at DL sell out QUICK. Last year it was about a month for DL to sell out. Tink last year was less than that. With the added race I wouldn't be surprised if DDD is sold out by the end of the week. I wouldn't be surprised if it sells out the day after registration opens to the public.

That's a great program! After that there is a 10k version that starts where the 5k leaves off. Galloway has a good app for 10k that uses his method.

I used bridge to 10k by bluefin software. I liked that a lot. Galloways app is great if you want to do the run/walk method. I run/walk on longer distances.

Thanks for the tips. I will definitely be doing the WALK/run method. Haha. I'm actually getting excited now.

Yea!! I have Galloways 5k app and really like it because I can set my ratios to anything I want when I get into longer training runs. His 5k app goes up to 7 miles if you want. I also use the app "interval timer" the free one for greater distances and can set that to anything. It's great to play around with what intervals work for you!

Good luck! You have plenty of time & will do great!

I joined the DDD group on fb and there is a post there talking about DDD possibly selling out on or before tomorrow! Who knows if that will actually happen, but if you are thinking about doing DDD, I'd sign up today if I were you. They have gotten a lot of registrations at the Expos. Apparently even the Disneyland half, on its own, has more registrations so far this year as compared to last year at the same time.

I was worried about this with the 10k. It's why I signed up before registration officially opens (AP)!

Maybe I'm missing something, but as long as you have the right link to register early at Active.com (provided earlier in the thread), it doesn't seem like Disney Visa or anything else is required. I clicked the link and registered and didn't get any complaints. At least I'm registered

Can't beat 7 medals for 4 races!
