Do you have a picture of the one for the marathon.
I am still hoping that they will change the bag for the princess so its not the same as last year

Click here...bags are toward the bottom of the article.

From what they've posted for Princess pre-orders, the bag looks the same as last year. Kind of a bummer...it's the same as last year for Tink too.

I LOVE the bag for the marathon. But I would not buy one with the special marathon tag. I also hope they end up in the stores.
Last year's tink D & B ended up in the Vault 28 store in DTD last May. Of course without the 1/2 marathon tags on them. They were "flying" off the shelves.
So I am keeping my fingers crossed about the marathon bag in the stores.
I really really want one.

Injury question for you:
Has anyone had Morton's Neuroma? Let me back up for a moment and say that may not be what I have, but I am getting different diagnoses from different professionals. No one seems to know anything for sure except that is not a fracture (had an x-ray and bone scan).

Podiatrist thinks it is biomechanical issues resulting in scar tissue, ortho dr assumed it was a tear of plantar plate, PT thinks it is a neuroma. Besides rest (well, no running - still walking around gingerly to live my life), ice and Aleve, I have had 2 rounds of shockwave therapy and now 1 round of ultrasound. The shockwave seemed to further aggravate things and my foot is quite swollen. It is going down but very slowly. The actual "problem" is a sharp pain in the ball of my foot when running.

Any thoughts or advice? Has anyone else dealt with anything like this? It is beyond frustrating not knowing exactly what the problem is when we are 7 weeks out and I have now lost over 3 weeks of running (I am cross-training but it's just not the same).

The PT said the next step would be cortisone if the ultrasound doesn't alleviate the swelling.

I am just desperate for answers or advice so if you have any thoughts, please share! I have worked so hard and trained for almost a year now. I was up to the 13.1 and feeling fine so this is so disappointing. At least with a fracture I would know what to do and what the healing time would be.

Help!

Gold Bond has this product as well, and it is cheaper than the BG.
Where have you seen the Gold Bond product? I'm almost out of BG and was going to get more, but cheaper is better.

We have had an early loss before so we are a bit nervous but really really happy.

I also wanted to share this very special video my hubs made of our Disney Christmas Village! It is his project and it's really truly amazing. Anything with lights you see he custom did. He custom lit the Contemporary, GF, Poly, and even did the color changing LED's on the castle! Sorry for the pulsing lights in the video, that's just how the LED's translate onto HD. I don't know how to fix that. I know this will get you all even more psyched to be running!!!!

Congrats! Thank you for sharing the video!! Where did all of the buildings come from? I have never seen them before.

But since I had it on, I had him take a picture. Here's what I am wearing. I still need to get a green running belt and head band (mine are pink) but otherwise here it is:





I have a wand but I think I will skip it since I plan on having my phone, KTTW, iPod Shuffle and cash in my belt pouch and my camera in hand. I don't need another thing to carry for 13.1 miles.
Be sure to double check your straps before the run. I'm a dance mom (not a crazy one, LOL) and from experience the straps are not always sewn in tight. I would maybe carry two safety pins with me just in case.

I carried my Olympus 850sw in my spibelt for the 5k last year and never took it out. It did not bounce. The first time I used it as a test run on the treadmill, I had it on the wrong spot and it was making me feel like I needed to pee. Once I peed and moved it, I didn't have any issues.

I can't tell you too much, but my mom had it and had surgery to remove it. I did find this, which is what she sent me to read up on it. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/mor...euroma/DS00468

I would say, before you get cortisone shots, be sure to read up on why they use them and what results you can expect. I had several in my heel for PF which did a little to nothing. The Dr lead me to believe they would "fix" it, when in reality it was a bandaid. I was pain free for a day or so and found out later there were possible side effects he never mentioned.

I was gonna mention this too...the podiatrist I see for PF mentioned shots as a last resort and said I would have to stop running if I got one because a side effect was that it would make it more prone to tearing and then I would have a bigger problem on my hands! (Or feet, I guess ). Right now I'm just stretching and taking naproxen and its helping, slowly but surely. This reminds me that I forgot to reschedule my Thursday appointment with him this week...must remember to do that first thing!

A fellow walker on the breast cancer 3-day had it-that is how I learned about it. I have seen it at Walmart and it also is available on line through Amazon.

Before the holidays and through them life got a little crazy and I missed more training runs than I should have. With the start of the new year I decided to get myself back on track. I went for a run on the 1st that was supposed to be 6 miles and barely finished three before I threw in the towel. I have been feeling majorly discourage since and if I’m honest downright terrified of the race.

This morning I am happy to report that I am in a much better place. I’m so glad that I was able to read everyone’s posts about not letting one bad run get you down. Last night during my short run I was able to run for a whole mile and a quarter before taking a very short walk break (granted it was on a treadmill), normal I run one minute walk one minute. Not going to lie, im feeling a little proud of myself. Thanks for all the support everyone! I hope your training is going well and everyone is getting excited, I know I am!

Yay you are staying a whole week! I wish..

Last year I had the 6 AM flight out of Midway on the Friday and that Thursday we got snow, so SW canceled my flights. All flight the rest of the weekend were full. I had to fly to Texas then to Orlando. I got to Orlando about 5:30 PM on Friday. I said NEVER AGAIN. That is why I am flying Thursday if we get snow I have at least an extra day to get there.

I did hear that some princess's from Chicago had to drive to Orlando because they could not get a flight.
