CSR for me, too! Getting there around 10:30-11:00 am on Friday, depending on the traffic. Will wander the Expo after checking in. I am up for hanging out! I have dinner at Kona @6:50 with a bunch of Solo Princesses on Fri, then Wishes watching from the Poly beach. I'm in BC, so bring on the Sangria and snacks.

CONGRATS to all who got into the meet-up! I passed on trying, as what my leg needs most is pre-race rest. I'm looking forward to reports!

Weather... I'll confess to being very happy with the latest forecasts, so long as any rain holds off. I waited all summer for cooler temps... only to find that i really prefer to run in the heat, lol! 65ish is just right for me.

Humidity is, well... relative. I expect it to feel pretty normal to me, but those from drier climes may find it pretty damp. The downside to humidity is that your sweat doesn't work as well to cool you down, since it can't quickly evaporate. My advice is to take the first few miles a tad slower than your usual pace and see how you feel: feeling great, bump it up; feeling hot and run down, take it down a notch. Pre-hydration is KEY in the heat, as in days before, not hours. But don't overhydrate without adding electrolytes, either. I'll do a 3:1 ratio of plain water and Nuun in the days before the race, and alternate 8oz bottles of water and Nuun on race day.

One thing I haven't seen mentioned: pollen counts are through the roof down here. If you have issues with tree and flowering shrub pollen, bring your meds. I'm a right mess and am taking my usual daily Zyrtec, plus a nasal steroid spray, plus using my inhaler more than usual.

You go, girl!! That is awesome

I'm scheduled to land around 10:45am Friday too, so we might be on the same ME bus...as long as I meet up on time with my friends and their parents...none of them are running, but are Disney lovers (and great cheerleaders!) so they come along on some of our trips with us to hang out. This time my friend's parents are coming and they are bringing their grand daughter for her first trip too. I'm sure she's excited! They are flying SW and are scheduled to be in 15 minutes before me, so I'm hoping they'll already be waiting once I get down there and we can get moving! I'll keep an eye out for you

I'm also at CSR. I get in Friday early evening. Am hoping to get checked in and to the expo to pick up my stuff before heading to Kona to meet up with some solo princesses for dinner. If I don't make it Friday, I'll be hitting the expo Saturday morning. Not sure of my plans for the rest of the day. I've got some friends who will also be there (but not running) so will hook up with them for a bit, but then probably taking it easy. Plan to be on the first bus Sunday morning so that I have some time to enjoy the race retreat

Now as I think about packing, I wish I knew shirt color so I could pack matching shorts.

If you have khaki, jean, or black shorts, those will match just about anything.

Did my last run today before Sunday. 3 miles feels so short when you've been running quadruple that distance. I blinked and my run was over. I do have a bit of a knee injury that's sprouted up, so I'm not doing anything else exercise wise between now and Sunday. DH just got a new car and I opened the glove box yesterday only for it to drop open really fast and it banged both of my kneecaps something terrible - left a bruise on one. Am I the only one prone to weird, freak injuries right before a big race??
Well, poor Cripey fell backwards into her suitcase! I've been meaning to ask, Cripey, how you are? I hope it's just funny now and that you aren't feeling any residual pain.

I'm at Pop Thurs night, then over to CSR for the weekend and race. Then to POR for my final night. I wanted to experience a couple different hotels!

I hope the expo goes smoother than people are projecting. It sounds kinda nightmarish so far.

Thanks for asking It feels alot better today. I'll probably go ahead and get my 3 miles in this evening on the treadmill. I should do one more 3 miler, but I'm having trouble figuring out where I'm going to fit that in this week, so tonight's will most likely be the last one before race day.

I'll be at CSR -- booked it before we even knew the Expo was there. Getting in late Friday night, and probably going to head straight to Rix Lounge for a "yay, we're here" celebratory drink.

OK Orcagirl and Longhorns. I see you out there in the Twitterverse following me. Just you hush now on Twitter about how much I love Sean Astin! I'm trying to be cool. I put all my fangirl-ness on this thread, but now we're going out in the real world and I'm going to try to be all cool and stuff when we're in person

We did too! We even considered switching over to AoA at one point and I am soooo glad we didn't!

Thansk! It's the comb-less kind and very tight; tight enough that it anchors on well. I've jumped around and bent over to tie my shoe in it and it didn't budge, but I fear losing it in a porta-potty, so I may tack it on with a few stitches.

Love the outfit ! Thanks especially for the pollen count...pretty bad here in San Antonio so I will be packing an extra bag I believe just for meds !

Believe I read they have power aide lime flavor along the course. Our running coach suggested we find out what they would serve along the course and try it BEFORE race day and before a short run just to see how our bodies and tummy's would react. We both did fine...but I know some folks have had ...hmmmmm...adverse reactions so to speak... so....if you haven't had power aide before go get some and try it out from the comfort of your home versus the porta potty !

Staying at CR...anybody else. . .
