I just got new shoes yesterday! I've been running in Brooks Adrenaline 12's, and they just came out with the 13's, so I thought I would go back into my local running store (Marathon Sports) to try a few options. I tried some kind of Muzinos that were huge and a pair of Asics (whatever their stability shoe is) that were terrible--- as soon as I ran down the sidewalk my shins hurt. So, I'm back in the Brooks. I couldn't tell much difference between the 12s and the 13s, and hopefully that will also be true once I am able to try a run in them (hopefully it will be slightly warmer on Thurs to give me a chance-- no indoor track or treadmill available for me).

Oh, and on the waiver thing, I don't expect to see anything until they get through the post-Tink and DL 1/2 wknd registration craziness.

If it helps you feel warm, it was -6 today but -19 with wind chill. So pretty much +18 is 35-40 degrees warmer.m

Hi Princesses
I just wanted to share......we just got back home from DL and running Tink. Had a great time and loved the warm weather.
This race was actually my best yet !!!!!
Really for the first time I was really "in the zone" and just kept pushing myself, kept running and had a strong finish. I'm usually very cautious (probably too cautious) especially when running by myself, but something just really clicked and I just went for it !!!! Maybe it was my wings. But I am even more excited for Princess and to really push and challenge myself even more.

I'm so excited and I knew you Princesses would "get it". Now I am half way there to finally getting my C2C. Until next years Tink, it's time to put my wings away and start polishing up my tiara.

Can't wait to run with all of you !!!!!!

I love marathon sports! It's where I got my shoes! Mizuno wave inspire 9s... Before I had brooks defyance 5s. Although recently I cheated on them with the greater boston running co. As I had a groupon and they're right down the street from where I work.

Thank you so much! It's been quite the journey, that's for sure. Just gotta keep swimming, though, right?!

Sooooo...no training this week until I feel better. Coach assured me that missing five days of training would not push me back. DH and I have already done a 10 mi run so we are okay for our goal of completing our first half. Still bummed...just not the gal who sits on the couch and watches tv !
I'm sorry that you're not feeling well, but glad you're taking time to rest and recover! I know how hard that is, mentally. I'm absolutely terrified of germs at this point. And I live in Tourist Central... very tempted to get a mask for running errands, lol!

There was only one giant corral last year, with pace times marked to guide us to the right area, but it didn't work: it was a giant free-for-all. They made actual, lettered corrals for the W&D 5K and I'm pretty sure I read that they did the same for the 5K over Marathon weekend, so that may be the new method.

Hey Princesses! I have decided to defer the race. I know! But it really is the right choice for me at this time. I am 8 weeks preg and haven't run in a month because I have been literally sick 24 hrs a day with morning sickness. At this point just getting down to WDW will be an accomplishment for me! I spoke with Run Disney and I will be deferring to next year's Princess, and then they made a special exception/note on my file that I can defer again to the 2014 Wine and Dine which will give me plenty of time to train and prep (2014 Princess will be 15 weeks or so after I give birth to our first so cutting it a wee bit close imho). DH will be running this Princess of course, his first ever Half Marathon. I really know this is what's best for me. Sure I could try and drag my butt down there and try and walk most of it but i want to participate to my full extent. Especially because I feel like crap! It is bittersweet :-(

I do sympathize with you but understand your decision. My DD had sickness with both pregnancies and the most important thing is to take care of yourself and your little bundle of joy.

Another question. Did anyone else make reservations with run Disney and not get luggage tags? I have the package with dining. Trying to decide if I want to call run Disney.

Such a difficult decision, but I think you made a wise choice!

Hope everyone is warming up! We went out running yesterday and made it 5 miles in the wind pushing two kids in the stroller before we called it quits. It was just too hard to push my kiddos in a sail! We were still averaging about 13 mins despite feeling like we were being pushed backwards by a kite!

We also bit the bullet and booked a room at the Gaylord Palms for the night before the race! We live about 45 mins away from Mickeys home and decided it would be nice to "sleep in" (haha if you call 3am sleeping in) and having a place to shows afterwards!

Congrats on the pregnancy! I know exactly how you are feeling! Hope the morning sickness passes for you soon (mine did by about 13 weeks)!

You are among people who do "get it". Congratulations. I ran my first 1/2 the first weekend in January and several times during the last few miles I felt like crying because I realized that I was going to really finish and with strength. I couldn't believe that someone who considered herself a non-runner just 5 months ago could make that transformation. I first started running just to survive the PHM (my DD's idea. Cute costumes, Disney, how could i resist?) and not get swept. Now I think I'm hooked for life. I've already signed up for a 10k in March and another 1/2 in April. I'm not near as fast as most of you, but that's ok too. I'm not young (57) but I've found running is a safe place for self expression within each individual's capacity. No competition except with myself and lots so support to help with the hard run days.

I'm looking forward to running with (and probably behind) all of you while we all earn our medals.

Congrats on your first half marathon ! And I will surely be right there with you behind lots of our fellow Princesses. I'm hoping with my current pace to finish around 3:00 hrs.

We got Disney envelope in the mail too ! Anybody else staying at the contemporary ? Still thinking about reservations at the wave but looked at the menu and don't know if my tender tummy should try the "rich" food the night before the race.

Already thinking about getting back to the hotel after the race and then it hit me...monorail...yeah....guess the brain engaged between coughing spells and cold meds !
