has been kind enough to add me as a maintainer to this little group so that we can use an old and apt name for the community while still bringing it up to date!
I hope to encourage an open community of livejournal users who are either planning to be involved with an upcoming Walt Disney World Marathon or who are curious about the possibility of doing one in the future! Together we can share training stories, food advice, and most importantly - encouragement! Feel free to also share information about Disney's other athletic events - particularly the runnning and walking races!
I actually did the 2007 Walt Disney World Marathon with Team in Training this past January. Now my brother has somehow talked me into going for the 2008 Goofy Race and a Half Challenge - where we'll do the half marathon on January 12th, followed by the full marathon on the 13th! So I am very curious to know if there are any other Goofy people out there.
So be sure to join and introduce yourself in a welcome post if you're doing the half, the full, both - or the family fun run! It's a whole weekend of awesome events, so I know there must be more users out there that are signed up to be a part of the magic!
