    Hi, I'd like to start preparing for the Disney half marathon in January 2015. Where should I begin? Thank you!

    Hi, Melissa! 

    Congratulations on your decision to participate in the half marathon during the 2015 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend® presented by Cigna®! You won't be disappointed by the opportunity to run in The Most Magical Place on Earth. This 13.1 mile course has you running through Disney's iconic Magic Kingdom® and Epcot® theme parks- It's sure to be a wonderful experience for you, Melissa.

    To begin getting prepared, keep your eye out for registration to open. Historically, this race event begins accepting registrations in the June/July timeframe- though dates have not yet been official announced. You will also want to get a training plan ready to ensure you have an enjoyable and successful race experience. With runDisney's official training consultant, Jeff Galloway providing free, race-specific training programs, you'll be ready to run come race day! In addition to race-specific training plans, you have the option of selecting a program based on your running experience. Need advice on nutrition or race details? The runDisney website is an excellent resource to keep you up to date on all things related to race events and race details. Of course, you can always ask me any additional question regarding the 2015 Walt Disney World Resort® Half Marathon or any other runDisney events right here on the Moms Panel.

    Happy Training!
