I wish I was heading for Disney (or Phoenix for that matter), but alas I am just coaching this season. This thread will pick up steam soon, here we haven't even had a recruitment meeting yet for the winter, so we will be signing them up soon. Friend of mine did the Goofy last year, and when I do make it to Florida I certainly want to do that challenge as well. Train Well, Raise Lots.
I am running the full on sunday, But will be out all over the track on Saturday cheer, My great but goofy friend Kyle who I ran the full with last year for his first Marathon ever is running the Goofy this year. After the full was done he said I am not doing the goofy. But by the party the night he was dance and ready to sign up for the goofy. My hats off to you , Kyle and all the other goofys out there running to save lives! Thank you so very very Much!
Next year if he does it again maybe I'll do it also.

Hi everyone! I just joined the team today to walk/run the 1/2 marathon in Disney in 2009. I'm nervous because I have no previous running experience or training in my background. But I am excited to train and get to know other participants. Anyone in a similar situation as me?

Jojospirit that is Great!
I am also from Syracuse...doing the full/walk in Disney 2009. I bet we will be meeting soon with TNT. Anyway I am worried about walking a whole marathon....will there be enough time...will I have to run. I have only found walkers that do the 1/2, not full and keep wondering if it is possible. Has anyone walked a full?

Hi folks! I'm doing the full marathon this year - I'm gonna go Goofy in 2010 for sure. I did the WDW 1/2 last January, so if anyone has questions about that, feel free to ask! (Yes, the medals are AMAZING! And yes, the course is flat as a pancake, except two overpasses between miles 10-12!)
I ran the Disney marathon in 2005 and then the first Goofy Challenge in 2006. If you plan to do the Goofy try to throw a few longer runs into your training the day before your true long runs to get your body used to it. I also walked the water stops to reduce the wear and tear and keep my hydration up, it can get hot in Florida. I also had a massage each day after the race to speed recovery, but I'm used to doing this. If you don't regularly get massages I would not recommend doing this because it can backfire and cause a lot of stiffness with the extreme exertion by your muscles.
