    I'm going to do this next year, I'm getting married at the end of September this coming year so I won't be able to participate. I'm doing another half marathon in August but wish I could have done the Disney one!

                    I'm signed up, making it my first half marathon after Disney was my first 5k last year. Plus, I've managed to convince my wife and two of my friends to run with me after the great experience I had last year. My endurance is built up to the point where I'm happy with my time (easily fast enough to not be in the last corral, but no way to prove it- oh well, next year). I can't wait!

                      Newby question. Do they put slower ppl in the first corral's or the faster people? Both make sense to me.

                      Slower in front to give them more time to run
                      Faster in front so the slower people don't block the faseter

                          Don't miss out on this! It's so fun! I did it 2007 and 2008 and I'm pretty much done...I wanna try the 5K though.

                            The faster runners are put in the front corrals. I've got to say, nobody hosts a marathon quite like Disney. Running through the parks is lots of fun; last year they had characters throughout the parks and some of the POD floats set up along the route and many employees were lined up cheering us on. Even outside the park, there was never a moment when we weren't being cheered on by various youth groups from Anaheim and the surrounding community. Even folks who live along Ball Road set up lawn chairs and cheered. There were marching bands, girl scouts, boy scouts, cheerleaders--really very cool. When we got to the Anaheim Stadium parking lot, I was feeling pretty drained and wanted to stop and walk, but at just that moment, a little Brownie girl scout shouted my name (your first name is printed along with your number that you pin to your shirt), so naturally I kept going. I give credit to that little girl for my respectable (for a 51 year old beginner) 2 hour and 17 minute finish.

                              This was going to be my year to run now that my knees feel much better, but we now have a 4 month old and being gone during that weekend won't fly.... Next year!
