Tinker Bell Half Marathon: Goals

Race goals. It's hard not to form them when training. Mine are usually about improving time and achieving a PR. 

For the Tinker Bell half, 10k & 5k, I have a few goals: have as much fun as possible, stop for photos with characters, and finish to get these beauties!

(I saw a photo of the 5k medallion a while ago, but can't seem to find it again.)

This will be the first time I've done back-to-back-to-back races. My training has been worse than my normal half marathon training and most importantly, I won't have my running buddy (aka my husband and motivator) with me. 

I'm walking the 5k in costume with a friend, so I know that'll be a lot of fun. I'm running the half with another friend who is running her first runDisney race. I'll be starting in Corral E with her, so I hope we have time to stop for photos without worrying about getting swept. I don't have a running buddy for the 10k, so I plan to take it easy. I suspect there will intermittent running with lots of photos. :) 

Do you make goals for runDisney races?

    1. Thanks, Karen!
      Princess is coming up soon! I just saw the new Dooney & Bourke bags, so cute! :)

  2. Aw man I was hoping we could hang out in corral A together before the race! Hopefully I'll see you in the pre-race area though!

    1. We will definitely hang out in the pre-race area before the race! It's my friends' first runDisney race, so we're all starting together. Plus I am no where near ready to run an "A" time. ;)
