🌟Ok.. These pics of this morning's run have motivated and inspired me to do the next Disney run on August 31. I DO NOT run and will need tons of encouragement! Is there anyone else willing to make the commitment with me that will need some help? If we can use this post as a commitment, I will keep track of us newbies and find a way that we can work together (be it sending words of encouragement through DMs, etc) to keep our commitment and be successful on our first run!! Since this will be my first run ever, I'll be doing the 5k, but sign up fir whatever your comfort/ ability level is and LET'S DO THIS!! Who's with me?!?! Team MW!!!🌟
Why can't they do a "Zumba dance with Disney" or something like that? I'm also NOT a runner so I admire all of you runners out there! - MissAmericaSings   350.8 #588 1-19-13 11:14AM Like(7)  Reply

Count us in! Me and my mini (18) are going to run! It's our first, and we started training in earnest this past week. We are so excited, but we are also sure that plenty of pixie dust and encouragement will be needed! Let's do this! - mrstoad   256.1 #1165 1-19-13 11:27AM Like(2)  Reply

I won't be able to do the next one but hoping for the 5K next year. Can't run but sure can walk if it's allowed. I meet with a trainer tomorrow to get a workout routine specific for me. Hubby is even going for support. Thanks for all the inspiration everyone! And great idea RC mom! - MrsSchnooks   2780.2 #36 1-20-13 4:53PM Like(2)  Reply

A friend is a marathon runner, just completed her first 50-miler in September I think, found out she has breast cancer and had a lumpectomy in Nov and insisted on completing the California International Marathon before she would start radiation and chemo. She is my inspiration and proves I have no legit excuse to sit on my keester - duckymomo  36.1 #4894 1-19-13 5:10PM
I'm sorry if someone already advised these but you should try the Couch to 5k and Bridge to 10k programs. I was like you, never ran, I even hated running the mile in high school lol. When I tried these, they were easy to follow and you can go at your own pace. I never thought I would EVER be able to run for an hour straight but I did after finishing these programs. Now I'm 10 weeks pregnant with nausea and no energy so, I'm hoping to do these programs after the baby is born. Good luck to you, you definitely CAN do this and you will feel wonderful while doing it :). - kss4tink   217.7 #1638 1-19-13 2:04PM Like(1)  Reply
I love couch to 5k!! I just finished week two and I feel great. - BelleintheTARDIS  258.8 #1141 1-19-13 11:09PM
Your post as definitely encouraged me! I may not be able to make it to August's run, but have been encouraged to get up and run for my health, I've been waiting too long for a wake up call and this is definitely it! And maybe then I'll be ready for next years! - sleepyhead_CM   572.2 #302 1-19-13 2:28PM Like(1)  Reply
That's awesome! Hopefully we'll all come out of this a little healthier.πŸ‘ - RCmom  5172.4 #15 1-19-13 2:37PM
I walk the 5ks....it's really pretty crowded even though they start everyone in waves. It's a lot of fun and NOT timed. The 16min mile requirement is more for the half marathon. (I still can't wrap my head around 13.1 miles) sign up and then search active.com for some 5ks in your area to do before so you get a better idea of distance. In Feb is the Race on the base in Alamitos and a frozen food 5k at Angels stadium. March is the coaster run at Knotts and you get FREE pie!!! Lol. Just have fun!!!!! - CM_Tamstirr   542.9 #322 1-19-13 4:30PM Like(1)  Reply
I just set the goal for myself to run the half marathon next January! I'm not a runner and am still healing from surgery so wanted to set a reasonable goal for myself. I'm just trying to figure out where to start... And which shoes! - luvmygreenarmyman   208.5 #1762 1-19-13 8:59PM Like(1)  Reply
I just started running and I got the Nike Free Run+ and Iβ™₯ them. - ILoveDL  58.6 #4112 1-19-13 9:04PM
Go to a specialty shop like Fleet Feet or Roadrunner Sports--most of them have services available to figure out the best shoe for the type of foot you have. They should also analyze the way you run on a treadmill. Don't buy a shoe because it's on sale or trendy or pretty--buy a shoe because it fits your foot and works with your gait. If the right shoe is on sale, then great! But plan on investing in the right one. :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  536.5 #326 1-19-13 9:15PM
I highly highly recommend going to a runners shoe store and being fitted by one of their professionals . It costs nothing to be fitted and you would be surprised how affordable the shoes are there. As a runner .. Please trust me on this advice - eviljules  1002.8 #153 1-19-13 9:17PM
@spoonfulof sugar .. Jinx :) our great minds were thinking alike !! Lol - eviljules  1002.8 #153 1-19-13 9:18PM

Thanks ladies I'm online now looking for a store near me in AZ. I have flat feet and a knee that likes to act up so I am definitely going to take your advice! - luvmygreenarmyman  208.5 #1762 1-19-13 9:25PM
My feet are somewhat flat too. The salesman said Brooks are best for that. I love mine, but need a new pair because theyre now worn out. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  623.0 #276 1-24-13 4:24PM
For any other newbie runners that made the commitment, I suggest reading through this thread. There is are some fabulous tips, advice, apps, etc. Thanks to all the veteran runners for the tips they provided! - RCmom   5172.4 #15 1-21-13 10:28AM Like(1)  Reply

We often do training logs and motivational posts in Chub 33 land! Come join us! I'm pretty sure I'll be running in Sept--I've been running off and on since I was in high school, but I've never done a half! - Spoonful_O_Sugar   536.5 #326 1-19-13 11:13AM Like  Reply

What a great post! I so wish I could commit to this but unfortunately our passes are expiring in July and we can't renew so going back in August would be hard. We are 6 hours away in NorCal. Good luck and can't wait to see your updates. - Ldgsg   172.6 #2221 1-19-13 11:45AM Like  Reply
I did my first 5k last Sept and it was so easy. I am not a runner or walker (i am not in any way fit either) but I had no problems. I know you can do it!! I am signing up for the 10k this year and would be happy to motivate you - Deltachiq   1222.6 #109 1-19-13 11:47AM Like  Reply

I wish I could! I'm attempting to get into running and so far I love it, but I just can't afford to run a Disney race yet. My goal is to run the Tinkerbell half next February! Good luck with your race, I know you can do it! - BelleintheTARDIS   258.8 #1141 1-19-13 6:38PM Like  Reply

My sister is running the 1/2 tomorrow and she inspired me to sign up for thw 10k in August. I DO NOT run at all. I started training last week, she made a workout plan for me I am super excited! - ILoveDL   58.6 #4112 1-19-13 7:57PM Like  Reply

Tuesday I will be signing up for the half. It's been awhile since I've ran, but once I start, my body remembers that I used to do it a lot. I'm excited for it! - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper   623.0 #276 1-19-13 10:53PM Like  Reply

I'm committed to running in the next Tinkerbell half (2014). I am 4 weeks into my training program and have given myself a year to train for the 13.1 miles. I was so inspired by all the pictures from today and it only strengthened my commitment! - princessSue   262.0 #1108 1-20-13 4:49PM Like  Reply
Decided to do the 5k in August, but will probably be walking. Will be doing the 5k with my daughter. I'm so much older than most of you, so hope I can do it, but I'm kind of excited about it. Thanks RCmom! - snowwannab   679.2 #242 1-20-13 4:50PM Like  Reply
If you have an iPhone I recommend downloading the Nike + running app. It keeps track of your progress, talks to while your running, gives words of encouragement, and you can keep track of friends to monitor their progress and compete with them. I think it's a well put together app, and can help provide the motivation you're seeking. - stratdad   291.7 #856 1-20-13 5:07PM Like  Reply
Agree! - MarshaMouse  4072.0 #24 1-20-13 5:08PM
I will definitely be getting the app! Thanks for the recommendation! - RCmom  5172.4 #15 1-20-13 6:00PM
I'd love to do it it august too. I need plenty of motivation myself. We can motivate each other!! - Superspacemountainfan   80.0 #3681 1-20-13 5:42PM Like  Reply
I am going to join in on the 5K I believe! It's going to take some motivation, but I think it'll be more than worth it :) It just looks like so much fun!! - KylaShea   629.1 #268 1-20-13 6:06PM Like  Reply
I will be there doing my second half marathon. Oh btw I wasn't a runner until I started training. I totally agree about the Nike app it's great. - BeastlovesBeauty   210.0 #1750 1-20-13 6:09PM Like  Reply

Your excitement is contagious! Congrats on signing up for the 10K. My daughter and I just signed up for the 5K. I am a very long way off from being in the shape to run it, so we will be walking it. I would love to get to meet more MW'ers and hopefully some will be walking the 5k too. Thanks for your enthusiasm! Happy training! Hope to run into you at the parks soon! - HBMom   13.7 #7714 1-22-13 12:09PM Like  Reply
