    Hi Moms & Dads! I'm a new runner. 4 a goal, decided to run the RF 5K in March (hope to work up to a 1/2 marathon someday). ? - has anyone ever run these events? Are there many walkers or folks who walk/run the events? Like to know about 1/2 and 5K both

    Hi, Julie!   A bunch of us from the Moms Panel all joined together to run the Expedition Everest 5K last fall.   It was so much fun!   There was so much energy and excitement!

    I am totally not a runner,  but I did do the 5K.   The experience levels run from Expert down to those of us who walked.   There was a group of us who took the back of the pack of runners and walked a quick pace.   Even walking, we were able to complete the 5K in about 45 - 50 minutes (and it was a complete rainstorm/downpour/mess, but that is another story!)

    I definitely suggest sticking with the 5K until you can build up to the half marathon.   My husband and I are doing the Royal Family 5K in March, and a whole group of Disney Moms are running the Disney Princess Half marathon, so I look forward to seeing you there!
