Maybe I'll just get one "powered by pixie dust" heart and we'll make a big deal of handing it off to the next person to race...the 5K, the 400m, and the 13.1 Like Dumbo's magic feather?
I think that's a super-cute idea!

you can do it! I got sick too in December and missed 3-4 weeks of training, and I'm doing the Tink half next weekend! Keep plugging away. You may have to change your goals for the race depending on how much you've missed and how quickly you can get back on track, but that's OK! I'm resigned to the fact that Tink will most likely take me about 45 minutes longer than I had anticipated being able to run it in...but I decided that since the registration fee for it went up, I'm just getting my money's worth by enjoying the course for a little longer

Thank you so much for the words of encouragement, sometimes that's what you need to keep going! :D
Yeah, I will definitely have to change my goals, I wanted to run the whole thing, but I don't think its possible, so a finish shall be a finish for me for this one! LOL
Heck, we all get that same medal in the end right!
Good luck to you on Tink!!

I'm justifying dinner at V&A because I'll be running 13.1 miles and walking several more. I'm aiming for 50,000 steps on my bodybugg that day.

Oh girl....soooo many of us have had colds etc, battled new and old injuries so don't feel alone! I found that my time off for my bad cold in December and now my exercise asthma hasn't really put me too far behind my training. My first goal for the PHM is to be at least two steps ahead of the balloon lady and then from there to be fast enough to enjoy some pics along the way! If all goes well...I would like to finish around 3 hours. right now it's looking good.

Hi princesses!! Looked over my calendar today as realized we have have a handful of long runs left and the it's finally here!! It seems like ages ago that I signed up.

With jut a few weeks left to make progress I had a question for any run-walk interval ladies.

I started running with C-to-5K and proudly made it up to a very slow 30 minutes of steady running. After learning about Galloway's run-walk method I quickly switched and noticed big improvements on my overall time.

I've been playing with intervals and have realized that no matter how long/short I make my intervals, I perform best using a 1:1 minute run:walk method. It keeps me from being bored or slowing too much but isn't too much to tire me out.

So my question is: Is this totally impractical for race day?

I'm worried I'll be stop/starting too much and will get in people's way. Are there any other 1:1 people out there who are planning on this method come February?

Dumbo double dare

For those of you princesses that might be interested in the DL half, someone on the Dumbo Double dare thread posted a link they received today from Disney Visa that allows them to register right now.
I don't own one and I just registered both of us for the dumbo double dare to get our C2C medal!

I got that offer email to. If I could only win the lottery!!!! I would be all over that. With C2C and Double Dumbo you will walk away with 4 medals!!! So so so so jealous.

I have a question for all you knowledgable run disney veterans......


My husband had signed up for the race with me in September but he has gotten injured and will be unable to complete the half marathon with me ( I don't want him to get even more hurt).

I was wondering if we have to eat the race and race retreat costs or can I sell them to another hopeful runner?

I didn't know where to look and I thought that someone may know here.

Thanks!

( and I completed 9 miles in 1.45 this weekend!!!)

I'm so happy to be registered. DH ran the TOT 10 miler with me even though I'm barely 15mm. I am still under trained and I don't think I'll be much faster for princess half. But DH is turning 40 this summer and this is my gift to him. I plan to really push myself in the next year to be able to challenge him during those 2 races. And let's face it... getting those medals will be freaking awesome given the fact that I was always the short and fat girl who could not run to save her skin during gym classes. I'll be very proud of myself if I can achieve that.

I need to adjust my thinking! I do a 107 mile walking event each year and at the end always ask my DH to take me for a cheeseburger!
