Alright mwers! We are roughly 2 months away from the 2013 Tinkerbell Half Marathon and/or The Neverland 5k. Was wondering who is running it and what last minute things you do to get ready for race day! (First time racer here!)
I think my tip would be to run your own race. At the start a lot of people pass me and it makes me want to speed up but I know if I want to make it the whole way I need to run at my own pace, the pace I trained at. - MXPrincess399   646.8 #258 11-17-12 9:40PM Like(1)  Reply
This is super helpful!! Thank you! I will definetly keep this in mind!! - CourtyAstroBlisters  678.6 #244 11-17-12 9:44PM
Yay!! You can do it!! I'm just doing the 5k but I've done a few 10k and slowly working my way to 1/2 soon - MarshaMouse   4073.4 #24 11-17-12 8:05PM Like  Reply
Yay!! I will be there late Friday night so ill come watch you run the 5k on Saturday night!! - CourtyAstroBlisters  678.6 #244 11-17-12 8:09PM
First timer here as well doing the 5k - angy17   181.1 #2116 11-17-12 8:10PM Like  Reply
Awesome!! I probably should have started with the 5k not jumped into the half! πŸ˜‚ - CourtyAstroBlisters  678.6 #244 11-17-12 8:15PM
πŸ‘‹Me! Ran the half last year, registered for it this year. I have to work out shift trades for work but with some pixie dust it will all fall into place. I already spent my SW Rapids rewards points so it better πŸ˜‰ - tdashgirl   320.1 #709 11-17-12 8:16PM Like  Reply
Hopefully you get the time off!! - CourtyAstroBlisters  678.6 #244 11-17-12 9:40PM
Me! It's my first time running and I'm doing the 1/2 hopefully I can keep up! - victoria13   285.1 #903 11-17-12 8:23PM Like  Reply
I'm sure ill be right there with you girl!! - CourtyAstroBlisters  678.6 #244 11-17-12 8:27PM
I'm freaking out a little. haha I'm thinking of doing some smaller races next month to prepare! - victoria13  285.1 #903 11-17-12 8:32PM
Yeah I need to find one!! I live in nor cal and haven't found any in dec! - CourtyAstroBlisters  678.6 #244 11-17-12 8:39PM
I'm in NorCal too. Where are you? I'm in Vallejo. - NikkiMickey  1685.5 #78 11-17-12 9:41PM
It's going to be my first 5k. But after 2 months of training, I have an injury. I'm still determined to do it, though! - PrincessKristin   780.2 #202 11-17-12 8:35PM Like  Reply
I have had a few set backs myself! It's tuff but keep trying!! You will get better and push on! - CourtyAstroBlisters  678.6 #244 11-17-12 8:39PM
I was actually told I should not ever run. But if there is anyway possible, I'm going to walk (REALLY fast :) - PrincessKristin  780.2 #202 11-17-12 8:58PM
Oh that's a bummer!! But I like the walking really fast idea!! πŸ˜„πŸ‘ - CourtyAstroBlisters  678.6 #244 11-17-12 9:07PM
I won't be participating, but 5k is nothing! That was the length of the Color Me Rad run I did a couple months ago. It will be soo much fun with going to DL! Good Luck Girl! You will do great! - Armenda   1135.5 #128 11-17-12 8:40PM Like  Reply
Yeah it will be awesome! Just gotta hit that 13.1 miles! πŸ˜„ Thanks love!! 😘 - CourtyAstroBlisters  678.6 #244 11-17-12 9:06PM
CAB train rain or shine. Push through and do a countdown calendar. I will be running/walking it too. - MeridasHair   346.5 #606 11-17-12 9:11PM Like  Reply

I'm running the Half. Trying to decide on a costume. I ran as Peter Pan last time. - MXPrincess399   646.8 #258 11-17-12 9:13PM Like  Reply
Yeah my bestie and I are trying to figure that out now! πŸ˜„ - CourtyAstroBlisters  678.6 #244 11-17-12 9:23PM
I wanted to run as Tink because she my favorite but I knew there would be so many Tinks! Maybe this time. - MXPrincess399  646.8 #258 11-17-12 9:33PM
We are wearing light up rainbow colored tutus and bright colors I think maybe tink ish - CourtyAstroBlisters  678.6 #244 11-17-12 9:40PM
There were a ton of Tinks and lime green in general! My girlfriends and I were part of that :) I want to do something different this year but not sure what. - tdashgirl  320.1 #709 11-17-12 9:41PM
I'm running the 5k and half marathon. It's my first too. Yes, any tips would be appreciated. - NikkiMickey   1685.5 #78 11-17-12 9:35PM Like  Reply
Doing the half again. Trying to decide if I'll wear a costume or not. - LilSterner   4623.3 #18 11-17-12 9:36PM Like  Reply
Your doing it!!! I'm so excited I'm sure you will go way faster then me! I was actually gonna Dm you! Was wondering about pics and if they just go on your race number or something!! Hi by the way darling! πŸ˜„πŸ‘‹ - CourtyAstroBlisters  678.6 #244 11-17-12 9:39PM
Hi!! The professional photographers do use your race number to sort the pics. Usually the Tuesday after the race you'll get an email with a link. You can then purchase individual photos or a digital download (which includes video) for $99. There is also usually a CM at the character photo stops that will use your phone to take a pic of you. I haven't really trained so not sure how well I'll do! - LilSterner  4623.3 #18 11-17-12 9:56PM
I'm doing the 5K. I'm so excited, it's my first one. :) - Vegan7LuvsStitch   997.9 #156 11-17-12 9:37PM Like  Reply
I'll be running the 1/2, it's going to be lots of fun if you haven't done a runDisney event before! My tip is pace yourself and make sure you do at least three days a week of running and stick to a training plan. You can do it! - pixiedreamer   136.4 #2789 11-17-12 10:10PM Like  Reply
My wife will be running the 1/2. I think we are using it as an excuse to go back to Disneyland for a few days. We added 2 day park hoppers, just not sure what days we will be using them. Get in Friday and going home Monday. Advice that has helped her..... Follow the training calendar provided by trainers on the website - MermaidHunter   96.8 #3447 11-17-12 10:10PM Like  Reply
Another tip I forgot about- carry some energy bites, gel, etc. they give you a Clif energy shot between mile 9 and 10. I have found that it helps if I have something around mile 4 or 5 too. When I go on training runs I use PowerBar energy bites and they really help during the race. - LilSterner   4623.3 #18 11-18-12 9:24AM Like  Reply
Great advice. To expand on this, I would make sure you try whatever energy snack you plan on bringing *before* the Tink. I find a lot of them make me nauseous 😝. My personal faves are Honey Stingers. You can get them on Amazon. - tdashgirl  320.1 #709 11-18-12 1:44PM
Be sure to start hydrating the week before. The day before, be sure to eat hearty meals, but don't eat anything you are unfamiliar with. That's not the time to try something new or spicy! Also, if you are wearing a costume, be sure to do some training runs in it to make sure it's comfortable. This will be my 4th half marathon so if I think of anything else, I'll let you know! Good luck with your training! - PirateQueenBriezy   301.5 #800 11-18-12 10:10AM Like  Reply
I am running it! It will be my first half marathon ever. I haven't ran in about a month, due to craziness at school and work. I'm looking forward to getting back into training though! - ladylikesdisney   945.0 #160 11-18-12 10:26AM Like  Reply
Thank you everyone for all the great advice! You are helping to my nerves to the side and be able to enjoy this race! - CourtyAstroBlisters   678.6 #244 11-18-12 10:32AM Like  Reply
