    I might have to check that out. Thanks! I've been using RunKeeper and it allows to post runs and gives pace & distance info but it doesn't integrate with music. Definitely will have to check it out and thanks again!

    Re: runDisney 2013!!!

    Hey Team....how are your times and distances comming along? I want to be sure we are helping each other remember to run. I took the week off from running since my 5K..but that seems a bit over the top and lazy. Anyone getting a good surge of running time or distance in? Who has left over jelly beans from Easter that they are munching on??? (I know I am:-)) Lets hear your results and distances!!!

    Have a magical day!!!!

    Re: runDisney 2013!!!

    Just joined the running team and I'm excited to run my first Disney race in January! I ran my first half-marathon in March out in Moab, UT and had a lot of fun. Now I'm stepping up for the Disney World Marathon.

    Re: runDisney 2013!!!

    Hey all and welcome Disbull!
    My training is continuing to go well. Part of what is motivating me is my son. Our whole family is running the Expedition Everest Challenge, and while my fiancÚ, my daughter (his twin), and I all had PRs in the 30s or lower for a 5K, his was in the mid-40s. I want this to be fun for him and not a challenge, for him to be able to complete the race and enjoy the party afterwards, so I started doing C25K with him. To begin with, his runs were easy enough that I could do my own runs in the am and his in the afternoons or on my rest days, but I'm now using them as my easy runs, seeing as we are in week six. :-)

    It's working, too. We did a 5K last weekend, and he got a new PR: 38 minutes! I'm so proud of him, and it really drives me to keep running, to see him grow. I can't wait till Everest! I know he's going to rock.

    How is everyone else doing? Anyone else signed up for Everest? Everybody registered for WDW Marathon Weekend?

    Re: runDisney 2013!!!

    Already registered for Disneyland Half and Tower of Terror 10miler. Tomorrow I register for the WDW Weekend full marathon -- my first full! I'm doing Galloway's speed improvement plan for Disneyland, which continues directly into his training plan for the WDW Full. I'm so excited to take on the challenge of running the full. Especially completing it at Disney.

    Training is gonna be slow, steady, gradual, and consistent. The only way to do it.

    Re: runDisney 2013!!!

    Thanks!! I'm going for my Coast-To-Coast with the Half, and once that's done it's back to training for the WDW Marathon as well. My longest run has been 15 miles, I can't even begin to imagine adding another 11 on top of that.

    Re: runDisney 2013!!!

    The Disneyland Half last Sunday was tons of fun! OK, it can't compare to WDW simply on the basis of space alone -- we spent the vast majority of the run outside Disney property on the streets of Anaheim; no characters, no video screens, basically nothing Disney at all! -- but it was well organized, well run, and a flat, fun race. DEFINITELY hitting it again next year.

    If anyone's interested, I did a write-up on my blog. You can check it out here if you're so inclined.

    Re: runDisney 2013!!!

    I want to bring a camera for the marathon, but I havn't trained with a belt to which I could hold a camera in. My family is full of kiddos who won't be up untill I cross the finish line. Any suggestions? Will there be a lot of Disney sponsored photographers along the way?

    Thanks and happy running!!

    Hi Christian! First of all, good luck! I ran the marathon last year and it was a blast. I had a belt, but I ended up carrying my cell phone in my hand for a good part of the race. There are disney photographers all along the race, so you will have lots of photos sent to you for you to purchase. If you stop to get pics with characters, you will have more. I would suggest stopping to get your pic taken in front of the castle. They will have a couple of photographers there and you will not have to wait very long. Have fun!
    Disney World is my Happy Place!
