I've been running in Vibrams for a couple of years now and love them. I'm intrigued by the Invisible Shoe, but I've never liked having sandal thongs between my toes. Hmmm. Must think some more. Any input/reviews from Invisible Shoe wearers?

It makes me a super sad panda that the Disneyland half marathon starts their registration at $175. . I really wanted my coast to coast medal this year but I guess it'll have to wait until 2014. That's more than I paid for the full marathon next month

Well, look at it this way; more money to save and spend down here in the Fla. sunshine next year!

Did you all see the new Dumbo Double Down?!

Was thinking about skipping DLand this year since I am running the Tink to get my C2C.

But how with this, all bets are off. LOL

Guess I need to bring the credit cards to the expo so I can get signed up. Hello to DLand Half number 5 for me Labor Day weekend.

I saw something about this at the office Christmas party last night and thought I had too much to drink. But after looking at it on RunDisney's site this morning... I was planning on skipping the left coast in 2013. This has made me seriously rethink those plans.

I suspect it will sell out quickly though. So if you are thinking of registering, do it soon.

I wanted to do the DL Half this year too but I'll have to wait because of the money situation and going to FL like 5 times this year! lol! However, with the new option I think I'll be joining in with the Dumbo in 2014! It's pretty awesome them adding a new race in California, even though I think that's bar far the most expensive 10K I'll ever do! LOL I'll have to get a new credit card for the Cali races!!

Yeah; I guess they don't appear the comfiest to run in, but every review I've found has been exceedingly positive. None of them mention the thong between the toes.

I didn't feel that my current shoes were too tight or too loose, but I'm now wondering if they are. I'm not sure how long I've had them; maybe five years? Maybe I'll have to visit a specialized running shoe store.

I have flat feet and most of the friction seems to arise between the tips of my toes and the shoe. A few of my toenails have recently taken a few hits after I went on a sort-of power spree on a treadmill; I was trying to avoid that. It doesn't happen so much when I run outdoors, which I'm thankfully still able to do. I wonder how I'll train in January and February.

One person suggested taping my foot to the shoe sole or donning thinner socks. These are interesting ideas I might try.

It's been a crazy couple of weeks and I'm so relieved I can breathe again. On the up-side, I've now completed the Couch-to-5K and Jeff Galloway's 10K training programs ahead of schedule! Woot! I'm on Week 2 of Jeff Galloway's Half-Marathon training program and aiming to pass 7 miles tomorrow. I feel kind of skeptical that it will happen. I wonder if I should register for a Half-Marathon this Spring. It seems that completing a marathon may be within reach after all!

Good job! You can do it, I did my first half about three months after I started any type of running, it took a while but I finished! Lol! I would recommend going to a running store as well for shoes. I went to my local store and they were able to test my strides to see how I step and which type of shoe was best. They hooked me up with some that have been more comfortable than any shoe ever in my life I've tried to workout with haha!

Wine & Dine was fantastic this year! Meeting you was just the icing on the cake. What a great weekend!
