Hello one and all! Been reading with interest. I did VMLM this year using 2.15:45 and finished strong in 4:53. Just signed up for e coaching and currently trying 30:30 for long runs. 

Are Hoka for me?

Thanks Glenn, looks like the width of my foot may prove to be a bigger problem, not sure I'll even get them on!

Thank you Pixie, Thank you Recovery Runner, just the sort of helpful suggestions I was looking for.  Clearly I shall need to make my own decision, but it is still helpful to hear from others experiences. I really appreciate the positive approach which you have both taken, you make this forum better.

Brilliant feedback folks, thank you! 

Think I might toddle off to Hoka World today and try a pair for the heck of it. However I am rather concerned about the 4mm drop. It'll have to be a very gradual transition if at all. Thanks again.

I'm a slow, novice marathon runner who is prone to tight calves. Not getting younger but feeling ok! 

Please does anyone have any thoughts on whether Hoka are suitable for me? Just about to go shopping and my current favourites have been discontinued so I need to branch out of my comfort zone ( Saucony Hurricane 15)

Wowee Orbutt, that really sounds...spectacular!!

Great  to hear everyone having so much fun.

Has anybody had any experience of Hokas? I'm thinking of trying a pair but I'm prone to tight, short calves and not sure if Hokas would make them worse or better. I'm oldish and slow if that makes any difference.  Thanks in advance. 

Disney MArathon 2016

It is all cups for drinks. Loads of stations though. 

Races start early. Even if you're as slow as me, you'll still be back at the hotel in time for brunch. Leaves time to hit the parks etc after the races!

There is nothing for your family at the start. Don't drag them down there at 4am, limited viewing points along the course so will need careful planning. All the roads are closed so it is hard for them to get around. If you contact run Disney they're pretty helpful with spectator guides  

The Everest opens early, but really only in time  for slower runners.  There is sooo much entertainment on course for runners, it's an awesome day. 

Family can get the same shuttle bus that you took to the start / finish area a bit later on though. The busses just run in a constant loop. Then get bus back with you after the race  They have lots of seating at the finish  

Try popping on RunDisney Facebook page  I got loads off good information off that last year. I also used the Disney Mom site and Undercover Tourist

Have a look at Jeff Galloway's website. Lovely gentle way to complete a marathon.
