    I have registered for the 5K and the marathon. I finished the half marathon last year. I have my fingers crossed for better weather next year.

    I did think it was cool that you could vote for the medal. I like #2. Too bad this isn't the year I'll be getting one. Or I guess I should say next year.

    Re: 2011 WDW Marathon - Who's Going? Want to Meet?

    Good luck everyone!!!

    I decided today that I'm going to shoot for the Disney Marathon. But between weddings and total lack of experience it looks like I'll have to wait until 2013 to give it a real shot. Wishful thinking.....but maybe by then I'd be ready to do the Goofy. I'd run the half too just to get a Donald medal to add to my shrine.

    But first it's "Couch to 5K" for me. :P


    Again best of luck to all of you for the rest of the year....and may you have better weather than 2010.

    Re: 2011 WDW Marathon - Who's Going? Want to Meet?

    I did the Full in Jan. this past year.E and I did it together, and E started to have problems at mile 6, didn't let on until mile 16 going into AK. It was cold, the water was slushy and the bananas were frozen. E was having so much pain and problems we had gotten so slow not realizing we are falling under the 16min mile. At mile 21 there was tons of sweeper vans, E was in pain then all the sudden the crowd we were in started running. The people were pushing and shoving. That's when I realized we are in trouble. The race officials were on the side yelling 49,48, 47... and there was one near the 21 mile marker saying you got to get here!!! I told E he had to run, and he just started running, and running he did right over the bridge. We made it. Holy Cats!!
    E we have to pick up the pace or we are not going to make it. If you can't go any more stop at the medic tent. E would not stop.He was in tears, you can see he is in pain. The medics were following us, keep asking me if things were ok, I said fine so far, then an official came back and said you have to stay in front og the lady with the balloon. We looked around and she was behind us!!!! Holy cats!!! At this point E was going to stop. I took off running, cause the lady with the balloon did too!!! This was entering Hollywood studios. Then I was told to stay with the group running with the orange flag. Holy Cats!! I will never catch them! I was entering the back side of where the Osbourne lights are and they were leaving!! I took off running again. I didn't see the lady with the flag, and I saw all my friends yelling go you can do this, do not stop... Hurry up E!!
    I turned around and E was right behind me. SWEET!!! We are exiting Hollywood studios, and a lady in front of us passed out. Here we come up to mile 23, there's the vans and the officials, I was freaking out!! They were yelling 25...24..23... and the one looks up and point at E and said you are the official last runner. WE MADE IT!!!
    I was so cold so was E. I twitted that we made it, and we saw WDWDeb and she has some snacks with her and E grab some and he just took off!! I went quit when we made it to mile 26, there's the finish line!!! We made it E was crying, in pain I was screaming in joy and there was everyone!!! We had hypothermia. We finished in 7:22.
    Our friends walked us to our car, started it to get the heat going.
    For me I had a blast, E did not.

    I was wondering if anyone running in the WDW 1/2 marathon might be interested in keeping some group goals to stay motivated? I use Nike Plus so that could be one way to log and keep up with each other? -Erin

    Re: 2011 WDW Marathon - Who's Going? Want to Meet?

    I'm in! I'm running the Full Marathon. I've done some long bike rides before (100 miles), but my longest run was a 10K. I was talking with a friend of mine who was training for the NYC Marathon, and he asked me if I would ever consider running a marathon. I replied, "The only marathon I would consider doing is the WDW Marathon." He responded, "Fine, let's do it."

    So, after doing a two-day, hill infested, 160 mile bike ride on Labor Day weekend, I put the bike away and started running. Wow, what a different experience. My knees in particular were not happy. I have since adjusted, and my last long run in prep for WDW was a 20 miler that I did in 3 hours, 42 minutes. And me knees were surprisingly okay. So, finally my optimism is setting in and I feel some confidence that I can do this thing! (Unless my knees wake up on the wrong side of the bed that day.)

    I wish success to all the runners!
