A friend told me today that "lazy is just resting before you are tired" so yes, I think that counts

Sounds good i figured it has lazy in its name so it must count.

Also can anyone refresh my memory what time we had to be to ESPN last year. I really want to plan a nap at some point after TL but also need to eat.

You could probably sell your fabric-dying secret and get back some of the money you're out!

How do you feel?

I got to go to the running shoe store because the inserts I got are NOT working for me. Had them redone and ended up getting entirely different shoes. Please oh please let this work for me....

Running back and forth in different shoes isn't the most fun thing to do the day after a 10 mile stint on the treadmill!

It sounds restful, but for me, I would be tired from the heat and sun. It might be hard to stay hydrated enough to run in the evening humidity. It can easilY still be 80 digress at 10pm.

I got my 10 mile run in this morning. Finished in just under two hours

My first ADR is a late lunch at Mama Melrose with the Fantasmic package for 10/3. I can sleep in the next morning before heading to the Expo.

Good for you! We arrive on 10/3 but not til 8:00 at night so I won't be heading to the expo until Friday. I love to look around but at marathon weekend it was a madhouse! I want to look at the sparkle skirts and hopefully get one if I can get into their booth.

Totally agree - my goal last year was to stay out of the sun and heat as much as possible, in addition to being off my feet. I watched football at the resort and took a nap. Planning to do the same this year.

Ugh, hope the new-new ones work out!

I found the Final Instructions here - runners had to be on a race bus at ESPN by 8pm to make it to the corrals on time.

Oh well I am still going to do the race. Hopefully I can just walk really fast and not be last. felt sorry for myself yesterday.
Oh no! I'm so sorry. Hopefully, the pain will dissipate by then - crossing my fingers for you!

Still no sign of waivers...

Meanwhile - it's feeling a bit like Groundhog Day to me... gues who's battling IT Band Syndrome heading into TOT - AGAIN??? Yep, this lady. In the opposite leg. I'm starting to feel like this stupid race is jinxed.

It's early - and I won't try to run through it this time - so I'm cautiously hopeful that I can get things mostly repaired by race day. But I suspect I'll need to approach this race as more of a fun run than the PR buster I'd been planning. Maybe, if the stars align and my body's willing, I can take it easy at TOT and nail my half three weeks later.

Good grief!! What is it with you and ToT?!?

PR or fun run, I will venture a guess from reading your posts: you will make it as great an experience as possible for yourself no matter what, and then continue to share your gained wisdom with grateful DISers here like myself!

to you, from me!!

PS. Do you use a foam roller to roll out those nasty IT bands before and after running? My physical therapist suggested this to me and so far, so good... *fingers crossed*...

Carolyn, you ROCK! Thanks so much for that - I needed it! Yep, I foam roll religiously - before and after every run, twice daily even if I don't run. Sometimes thrice, for good measure. I went to my chiro this morning and my right hip was WAY out of alignment; just having her jam it back into place relived a lot of tension in my ITB. I've been "off" ever since a very long, intensive yoga session last week and I suspect the resulting tightness, plus my sprained LCL plus new, - albeit better - shoes was just the wrong combination of stuff at the wrong time. NOTHING NEW BEFORE A RACE!!!!! When will I get that through my dense head?!

Links appeared a few minutes ago for Final Race Instructions. Links didn't work initially, but do now (at least did for me a minute ago).

Hopefully waivers sometime soon

I bet the corals are smaller though. If you look at the start times the first ones are only a couple minutes apart. With 4 corals I was truly hoping to be in b... Now I will be happy to be in d. With b though I figured I would stay to the back. I bet with fewer people in corals (in theory). Maybe there won't be such a need to watch where I position myself within the coral.
