Congrats! You should be pretty solidly in the middle, probably I or J (I think it goes to P).I am doing the Dopey Challenge. It will be my 1st rundisney event. I'm pretty nervous. I'm an on again off again runner. I've run 1 full marathon a few years ago(5:25) eeek but I just wanted to finish. I've ran several half marathons, my fastest was this May(2:05). So, I have submitted that time to rundisney. Does anyone know if that will place me somewhere near the middle. I'm just hoping not to be in the last few corrals. I'm going to need as much time as possible for the full lol!!
Wine & Dine Half Marathon hands down. Night race. Three parks in 13.1 miles. Osborne Lights. Epcot After-party.Would love to hear what people's favorite runDisney event/race is and what you've enjoyed about it.
Definitely go to a running specialty store to get fitted if you haven't bought shoes in a while. The models change so much over several seasons its hard to keep up. You may have ramped up too fast also. Adding walk breaks can let you ease into a new training cycle and still allow you to do the distances you want while stretching out your lower legs during the walk portion. Just a thought.This thread is motivating me to start running again. An excuse for another Disney trip is a great motivator! Just run/walking to start. Only 4 miles today and already feeling twinge of shin splints so going tomorrow to get fit for better shoes. And as long as I'm at the running store, might as well look at GPS watches. My last watch is an ancient polar HR monitor with chest strap that didn't do mileage. Any advice on watches? My needs are simple but I'd like to have HR and accurate mileage.
look what Touring Plans posted this weekWould love to hear what people's favorite runDisney event/race is and what you've enjoyed about it.
I'm in Houston and training in the summer is brutal. Hopefully all the hard work will mean we will be much stronger in the fall --- or at least that is what I tell myself to make me feel better.Any one else training in the deep South? It is miserable. Ran 9 miles this morning, it was already 80 degrees and 90% humidity at 5 a.m. It looked like I jumped in a pool when I got home, left puddles in front of the fridge when I stopped to get some Gatorade out. I swore the last time that I ran a fall race that I wouldn't train in the heat again, but apparently I forgot and registered for the Air Force half marathon in September.
I know! And will be back way too soon - every time I start to gripe about heat, I look at this picture on my phone.Oh yuck. Snow is a 4 letter word.
