Here's my question: At what point do I give up on "this is just race wear and tear that will subside on its own" and have it checked by a doctor? My overall recovery was longer than usual for this race (quads, hamstrings still sore on Wednesday). Hoping this is just a strain that will also feel better soon, but starting to worry.
If it were me I would make a appointment for the foot. DH broke his foot a couple of years ago, thought it was just a sprain. Found out later it had been broken but too late to fix it so he does have some running problems now. Better to get it checked out now.

I don't know yet about the DL half. I have a lot of local races and I'm working towards a personal goal for the year.
I wouldn't have looked at you like a wack a do
What are your upcoming races/goals?
Thanks !!

I just completed Tink and Princess I finally got my C2C . Next race is the DL 1/2 and next year Tink again. We do the races at DL since we're in California.
I only seem to run for the mouse--so until DL I will continue to run and work on my time goals.

I think I found a video of you while stalk--searching for Sean Astin on youtube

Jenna, you are my hero. Congratulations on getting your coast to coast. I hope to do that next year, with the Tink and another non-Princess race.

We saw you on the side of the stage as we ran past - I was hoping they let you start in B or C, and I am glad they did. To be honest, we looked up your time before ours because I was hoping you had finished and earned your medal.

I'm disappointed in the snark I see over where you started. I think your journey to this is inspirational and your Think finishing video was my go-to when I felt like giving up in the weeks before the race.

These Disney races are not, in my opinion, for the serious runners or for PRing. We all have a local race or 10 we can PR. These races are Disney - magic, dreams, all that stuff we buy into even though we are adults. Pixie dust!

Jenna and women like her embody what these races are about for me. Reaching a goal that seems impossible. I know I NEVER would have done one half, let alone 4, without my friends and Disney magic. I never would have attempted it. But the welcoming atmosphere allowed me to do the impossible.

I also think that this race is a natural girls' weekend, and I don't appreciate that snark either. I'm not a "real" runner. So I don't understand those frustrations. But I live in a runner heavy area and the serious runners I know distinguish the fun races from the PR ones. Not one of those ladies who can run laps around me at the track finds fault with making a race like this an experience. On the contrary, they encourage women like me to keep going. I might not be them, but I'm something. And that's enough.

Jenna, congratulations again and please know you inspire me and many more women like me.

Really well said! When I saw Jenna before the race, I got chills watching the video of her finishing Tink and was so excited for her to get her Coast-to-Coast. Only a few years ago, I wasn't a runner and I was very non-athletic, yet I felt welcome at RunDisney races. I'm glad to see that Jenna felt the same, and she's a big inspiration!

AMEN sister....just got done talking with a friend and said this race was not a PR event but an "I did it" event and fun weekend. Most people I talk to about the race never ask my finish time...just congratulate me on a really big achievement!

Way to go Jenna....you have inspired many !

1 (I know, I know -- I just didn't realize it would come so quickly! ), 7, 8, 9, and 13 (I think I was just ready to be done! ).

I would appreciate any help.
Me too! If anyone has 1, 2, 5, 6, 8 & 13 mile markers I'd appreciate copies of those please! TIA

Hi friends! This thread will need to be closed since it is over the permitted length. (I will be making that happen soon.)

You may want to start another thread and direct those who post here to that one.

Or, you may want to take up this thread in the 2014 Princess Half-Marathon that is already in progress.

Or, this thread Calling all Princesses! (2014 Princess half marathon board)

Hope to see you there.

DH (who did the PHM with,e albeit a little grudgingly...) thinks we should do the coast to coast. Since Disneyland half is closed...do we think they will do coast to coast next year ?

Hope so. Gives us 1 year to save up money for travel.

Yes, they have had C2C for years now. Another ideal for 2014 is doing Tink in Jan. Then you could do Princess the following month. For any DL race, I would sign up right when reg. opens ups.
