Congrats for making that committment! I'm also a fairly new runner, only have officially crossed 2 finish lines But by the time the half comes I will have ran the ToT 10 miler so hopefully I will be up to par! Good luck in your training, we have plenty of time!

We're in the same boat! I've only got 3 5ks under my belt but I figure we have plenty of time to train for the Half. I just want to finish.. don't care too much about time at this point!

you guys can do it! :D i've been training for a half marathon up here in connecticut so i'm more worried about that. we'll all be able to do the donald half! :D

so question for people who have done this in the past...does disboard usually have a meetup at the races? i mean, i'd like to run with people at the half cause i don't want to make it the race where i beat my time limit. i just want to have fun and be under the 16 min/mile

You guys can absolutely do this! I've run on and off for many years, but only got focused on distance a little over a year ago - started distance training last Jan., ran a few 5Ks before summer, completed TOT in Sept. and finished the Princess Half this Feb. Lots of time to train and totally do-able - you've got this!

Yep, though I've yet to make it to any of them, lol! We usually start talking about a meet-up a month or so out from the race.

I just registered! It'll be my first 1/2 marathon, so I'm wicked nervous!

I am training now, hoping to hit 5k by June/July and 10k by September/October!

Hey Donald runners! I am deciding between Donald or Princess? I have run Princess the last two years and this year was very crowded. Anyone run both? What race is your favorite?

Any one know when the 2013 Donald Duck half marathon sold out? I want to sign-up but need a more training under my belt before I have the confidence to spend the $160 registration fee.

I'm a total running newbie, but such a huge Donald fan that this race has motivated me to get moving.

It didn't sell out until early September last year--but it was also July before it go to 60ish% full like it is now. With the new (official) Dopey, everything is a bit out of whack this year.

That said, you can absolutely be ready for a half by January! Or at least I hope so, because I haven't been running at all in the past few months and will basically be starting at zero.

Thanks for the info - I'm hoping to wait until June before registering. By then, I should have an idea how my body is responding to the training.

I'm in! I ran the W&D 2012 as my first 1/2, this will be my 4th, maybe 5th (depends on how good I feel). My husband is running too, but we don't race together, so I'll let him post on his own - if he even sees this!
