    I was thinking of running next year in the half marathon. But I'm a teacher and school will be back in (and there's no chance of getting even a day or two off). I'm just not quite financially stable enough to justify flying down for just one weekend (not to mention I would have to get into florida LATE friday night). Maybe one year it will happen...

    I may come cheer.

    I have run the half two years in a row and not sure I am going to do it again. Its pretty $$$$ for a race and this year I felt like I was 'packed' in there all along that course, especially on that road by the GF. I think Disney has let the thing get too big for me.

    I have to take these things one at a time. If you would have asked me about Princess before the Goofy this year, I would have said probably not, but guess what I'm doing the Princess now. I can't get enough of the Disney races. They give me something to work toward and to be excited about.

    Let's just say I will do everything in my power to be there, but like Lori said with so many other trips around that time, this may be the year that I have to skip it. I definitely will not be doing Goofy. I'll have to see about the Half or full.

    My hubby and I are doing the half. This will be our first race...ever. We're really excited, though. Mary Jo, I have to say that you have definitely inspired me and I thank you for the fb message a few weeks ago.

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

    After listening to a couple of Podcasts about the Marathon Weekend and how much fun everyone had, I decided I wanted to give it a try. When I told my wife about it, she thought it was a great idea and wanted to join me. Neither one of us are runners and both out of shape. I am close to 40 years old and figured if I was going to try it, then I better do it now. Since it gives us a goal and a timeline, we figured this would motivate us to get our tails in gear and start working out. Having a chance to run through the Disney Parks motivates me even more. Hope we can make it and can't wait to meet all of you.

    It's a great strategy to register for a race that's almost a year away then work towards that goal. If you decide to get in shape before thinking of signing up for a race the years can slip away.
