I am not running it in 2013, but did it this year. It wasn't my first (it was my 7th) but it would be a great first half marathon. It is going to be SUPER crowded, so be prepared for that. But there are a lot of people that walk or walk/run the race. And although my friend and I could have run the whole thing, we didn't want to do that. We wanted to take lots of photos and take our time. I mean, it's Disney, what's the rush? LOL! So you'll be GREAT and have a ton of fun! Definitely make sure and go to the expo. It is crazy but fun. Good luck to you!!!

I ran it this past February and I had so much fun! It was my first half and l love every minute of it.

I am planning on doing it again this coming February and have even convinced some friends to join me in the race. It is well worth it.

Myself and another SP member are planning on doing it! It's our first half ever. emoticon We're both new to running, and I'm really nervous about being able to finish it in the time allowed. I'm doing the Galloway plan and liking it.

If anyone needs a virtual run buddy, send me a message. :) I'm finding having someone else working towards the same goal has been a huge help. I'd love to meet up with some fellow SP at the race!

I can't wait to register tomorrow!! But...I'm scared, being that at this point I can only run 3 miles at a time, and its not a pleasant experience...eeek!

Good luck with the race! I would love to run one of the Disney races but I'm so far away from either, in New Mexico, that the cost of the travel has no made it an option I can afford yet. But I'm still dreaming of doing it on day in one place or the other!

The one I'm thinking of is February 24th in Florida. I'm so excited that other Sparkers will be attending! I live in Pensacola, so it's nice not to have to consider airfare, etc. Luckily, my husband has a conference in Gainesville the following weekend, so we've opted to head down a week early. I'll do the half, and then our family will vacation at WDW. We're Disney geeks anyways, but this year the half is just the icing on the cake!

I'm planning on running it! :) I won't be able to register right when it opens on Tuesday, but I plan to. My mom's going with me (but not running) and we are going to go to the Disney parks while we are there. We are trying to find a good place to stay right now as well.

You know, I did the inaugural and would love to come back for the 5th anniversary, but I don't know if I can swing it financially this year. I'd love to, though!

I know it's a ways off, but is anyone running the 2013 Disney Princess Half? Registration kicks off next week and my husband and kids are giving me the registration for my birthday. It will be my first half, but I'm already really looking forward to it. I'm just curious to see if any other Sparkers will be there since I'll be running alone.
