✨🏃✨I'm signed up for the DL Half! Yay! I've wanted to do this for 4 years now, and finally we can make it work this year. Question for those of you who have done this before...if you could experience your first half marathon again, would you have wanted it to be a runDisney event, or would you have rather run a local "practice" half to see how it goes before the more expensive, more fun Disney run?
Woohoo!! I'm so excited for you SOS! The DL Half last year was my first ever half marathon. I did other 5K and 10K races beforehand, but I wanted Disney to be my first half. The 5K and 10K races were my "practice" races and I learned a lot from them so I definitely recommend doing some of those (for example- learning what to eat or what not to eat, which shoes work and which don't, etc.). In my training, the most I ran was about 12 miles so I knew that I could handle the half. I will say that the runDisney races spoiled me though. Now I'm very dissatisfied with the races here in Vegas. Besides the DL Half, I also ran the Wine & Dine Half in WDW and the Tinker Bell Half a few days ago. If you have anymore questions, just let me know! I'm doing the Dumbo Challenge so maybe we can have a Chub 33 meet up! If you have fb, check out the #Team runDisney group. They have lots of tips for runDisney races. - PirateQueenBriezy   350.0 #783 1-23-13 11:06AM Like  Reply
Thanks! This confirmed what I was thinking exactly! I know I should do a few practices to work out the kinks, but wasn't sure if I should try a half or not. I definitely plan on being conditioned to handle the 13 miles! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  719.1 #335 1-23-13 3:14PM
Congratulations! That is a big commitment, but I have every confidence that you'll LOVE it! Definitely go to the runDisney website and download Jeff Galloway's training program. - D55CR   249.9 #1502 1-23-13 4:03PM Like  Reply
Thanks! Yeah, I've already been looking at training programs--so excited! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  719.1 #335 1-25-13 7:30PM
Good for you SoS! I'd love to do one of those - even I had to walk half of it! I just want to be a part of it all and wear the number and the medal in the park afterwards! - msdizmaui   1117.5 #203 1-24-13 11:36PM Like  Reply
It's going to be fun to finally be a part of all if it and feel the adrenaline! I'm definitely looking forward to getting that medal! :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  719.1 #335 1-25-13 7:34PM
Tink 1/2 was my first and was so much fun to do for my first! Would love to do it as my first again! Running in the parks was so much fun, I think I forgot I was running. - NikkiMickey   1686.3 #123 1-31-13 9:43PM Like  Reply
