I can do the distance without any problem. Now I just need to add more speed.

I am getting very excited. This will be my first Run Disney event.

The husband and I just started our official distance ramp-up. I ran a 5K early this month, so I was mostly speed training, and now I need to get back into distance. We've done the half-marathons before though, so I don't think this will be hard to work back up to.

My sister chickened out at the last minute. But my BIL got one of the last spots. So my sister and my DH can hang out together while the rest of us are running the race! I see lots of Star Tours and Toy Story Mania in their future!

I am all excited to be doing the race. Hoping that my friend will be doing it with me but she might not since it is almost sold out.

My daughter and I signed up for it - she's been wanting to do the TOT for awhile. We're doing the Disneyland Half in Sept and figure we're already trained for it so why not? Can't wait!

It is definitely a sing-a-long, there's also follow along dances and lots of interaction with the piano players. I'm actually facebook friends with a few of them because I go there so often. There is definite expectation of singing if you sit up front. It is possible to hide in the back and not sing. It's also all request, so the songs vary depending on the crowd and the tips.

Hey, Ivory, tell me more about this piano bar. Is it really a sing along, or does everybody just sit and listen?

Yep, I am running this one instead of W&D (which was the original plan) this year. Tower of Terror is my favorite Disney attraction, and I was majorly bummed when they discontinued the ToT 13K right after I had just started running. So when they brought it back as a 10 miler I jumped at the chance!! May also do the 5K, although currently on the fence about that one.

Since everyone has such different finish times, a meet-up before might be better... Just a thought. :-)

For adults only, if you have a chance Friday or Sunday night, I recommend Jellyrolls Sing A Long piano bar at the Boardwalk, it's my favorite place to hang!

Looks like we definitely need to plan a meet-up of Sparkers after the race. Under the big hat? Time?

I'll be there! We're doing an adult only weekend at Disney, which I think will be perfect for ToT, especially since the food & wine festival is going on at Epcot. I can't wait! :-)

My husband and I are both running this one! And somehow my mother talked me into doing the 5K with her that morning as a warm-up! We'll all have to keep an eye out for each other.

I was just about to start this as a thread, and here you are! LOL

I will be walking this one. I am not supposed to run for health reasons, but I can walk pretty fast. I am up to five miles at a 16 minute mile pace. When I can do a full ten at 16 minute miles I will work on upping my pace. My goal is simply to finish.

Let's meet after the race!

I'm all signed up and registered for the 10 miler!! I'm looking forward it, although I still have a lot of training before I'll be ready for the race on September 29th! Anyone else running this one?! :)
