    Good luck! Maybe I will see you there (I am also running the Half, and praying not to be swept).

    Thanks! It's not easy, but it's the best I can do right now. I'm hoping to get in some outdoor running after the move.

    Heh, maybe. I knew I was moving back in Feb, when I was accepted for the CP. I can't wait!

    I will be running the 1/2 Marathon in January with my husband. So you can count us down for 2 and would love to meet up while we are there. This will be my 2nd Disney Half. Hoping to run the Disneyland 1/2 next year as well to get that 3rd Medal.

    My husband and I are both running the half. I finished my first half marathon a few weeks ago in NYC and I'm really excited about the Disney one. I'm hoping to improve my time as well. We would both be interested in meeting up with everyone!

    Hey all,

    I will be running the half this time (I've ran the full twice) and coaching and travelling with 20+ people from Toronto.

    I also know for a fact that Carlos from the Northern Mouse podcast is also running the half.

    As for a Meet, count me in, I need to show my wife that I am not the only person in the world this crazy for Disney.

    Robb aka Northern Sorcerer Mickey.

    I believe there was some mention of having a WDW radio marathon shirt available for the race, is this still in the works?

    our plane tickets are paid for and the hotel is booked! I spent part of my morning configuring the dining strategy so I'm getting psyched! My Husband decided to go so that should be fun having more people to cheer us on.

    Training? Huh? Oh yeah, I've been doing that too.

    My group is going to the Pasta Party on Thursday night, anybody else?
    We're staying at the Wilderness Lodge.

    My dad, my husband and I will be participating in our first Disney half, so please count us in for the team! DH and I would also love to come to the meet! Just started booking Adrs this morning and am happy to say that we'll finally get to go to Le Cellier for dinner; we've only ever had lunch there!

    Thanks!

    Count me in! I'm running the full and it will be my second go at it. The 2009 Disney marathon was my first marathon ever and it was an incredible experience! If you haven't listened to it already Lou was interviewed on the Running to Disney podcast and gives a great perspective. Give it a listen on your next training run.

    I'm also definitely in for a Team WDWRadio meet up!

    Lou's podcast has inspired me to do a 1/2 marathon ( I want the medal and go to an exclusive party and meet great Disney friends!) so I'm a newbie. what is being "swept"?

    That was an excellent interview. Those two could make a stone statue laugh!

    This is my first Half also and I was also inspired by Lou's accomplishment.

    Being swept is when they make you get on a bus if you fall behind the 16 minute per mile pace. The good news is that the sweeper clock doesn't start until after the last person crosses the start line.
