Afternoon Ducks!

It looks as though most everyone is getting back to running/walking. Hopefully by Wednesday I will be able to get back to it. Ended up with a knee issue after the half which required me to walk the relay, which resulted in blisters on the bottoms of my feet. Strange isn't the word for it.

I've never participated in a relay like that so, I didn't really know what to expect. I did the second leg and had a lot of standing around time in the MK parking lot. I sent RunDisney my observations of the weekend and asked if maybe they could put a Runner's Retreat there as I would have spent the money for a place to hang out while waiting for my teammate. Other than that, I thought it was pretty well organized, and the medal is cool! However, I wasn't quite sure what I was supposed to do with the butt pad they issued us. Either throw it away before hitting the course or take it with me. It may have been one of the "It looked good on paper" deals.

The Tag Fairy is jealous of you...Japan gets all the good electronics and video games first. Plus, DisneySea is so much cooler than any other Disney park. Can you be my tour guide when I visit?

I bought some this fall when I was having serious problems with my calves seizing up on me. I bought the Zensah brand from my local running shoe store. Unlike Liz's experience, mine don't rub or get itchy. I forget I have them on because they're so comfortable. And yes, I think they do help me. I wore mine on all my long runs and during the WDW Half.

A side story: They told me to wear the seam down the back of my calf. I thought it was funny when I got on the monorail after the half marathon and saw a girl with the same brand on, only she was wearing them backwards. You can see by their construction how they should be worn. Not sure what effect she was trying to acheive.

Yep! I'm the "blue" one. We'll be wearing wings and hats. Sounds like she also got us some wands, too! My sister is the creative one. I'm the enginerd.

Liz - Put me down for the DL Half in September and the W&D Half in November on Page One. That way, I'll be committed. In more ways than one. Thanks!

I lifted weights today at the gym. Will go for my first run since the half tomorrow morning.

Hi everyone, I'm in!
I haven't been very active since the WDW half. Tonight was my first night working out, I did a 30 minute Bob Harper DVD with a kettle bell. It was a leg killer. I will be doing other workout dvd's for cross training and doing just 1 run during the weekend until the spring.
Last year I posted my race wish list and was able to do everyone except I changed the Dexter/Ann Arbor half to a 10K. So here is my wish list for this year.

Flying Pig half marathon in Cincinnati on May 6th
Dexter/Ann Arbor half June 3
ToT 10 miler in September
Detroit half marathon October 21
and the WDW full in January
and for the heck of it, the Wine n Dine relay with Debbie.

OK I wrote it down now to make it happen.
I will let you know once I actually sign up for each event.

Have a good week everyone.

Joe

I have had a little set back...

I am running the Princess this year as well as the ToT 10 miler...


About a week ago I started having hip pain, bad.. it gets worse and better but it hurts enough to make me limp.

My husband doesn't want me running for a few days to see how it gets.. I get worried either way.

Renee, do you think it could be ITB related?
That is how mine starts.
Have you tried foam rolling or other stretches?
Sending positive healing thoughts!

Hi I've finally completed wk 1 of c25k but think I'll repeat it before advancing to wk 2 as life is crazy at the minute-figure if I can do that for a second week I'll be better able to handle wk 2! I hope so anyway

Half 2013!!

Hello

Is the Marathon wknd for 2013 really on Jan 11 - 13th, 2013?

I just booked a room at the military hotel Shades of Green for 3 nights in 2013!!! Yaaaaay. Good spot for families to CHEAR also

I've got two possible recruits on board, a co-worker and my younger sister. Getting them on board to start their walking on the treadmills. We'll see.
For sure I aim to beat my previous time for the Half.

Later Ducks

can i rejoin you all?

2011 was an interesting year. i was planning to run the half marathon in January, but ended up pregnant two weeks into my training. so...

but now, it is time to get back into the swing of things. i actually was back to running this summer. but i'm a photographer and the fall was crazy busy. with that and a newborn, it was hard for me to put my running first. but now, it is time to really buckle down and do it!

my goal is to run the Donald half marathon in 2013.

How old is your little one? I have a 6 month old, so I know how hard it is to get anything done for yourself with a baby in the house!

Actually, now that I think about it, she will be 7 months on the 30th, which isn't that far away . Time flies when they're little.

I have a 4 year old that goes to preschool half days, so I have her in the afternoons. Right now DH's schedule is flexible enough to allow me to get my runs in before he leaves, but when it warms up I hope to make use of my jogging stroller while my oldest is at school.

Happy Wednesday Ducks! I got in a good bike workout today.

I'm scheduled to run again in the morning, but there's a 30% chance of rain. So, I think I might just go ahead and knock it out this afternoon.

However, I know I won't be able to avoid running in the rain indefinitely. Like any good duck, I'm not afraid of a little moisture, but what do I do about my shoes? What's the best way to dry them out when I'm done?
I've always just let mine air dry. I've heard the newspaper method that Karin mentioned works well! Were you able to get your run in?

Hope your knee and feet are feeling better!

Ha, yeah if you didn't have a partner who could take your butt pad then it was kinda a waste.

There's nothing wrong with repeating weeks, way to go for being smart about it!

Just got the email telling about the Disneyland Half registration being open now. And anyway they listed the future races in the side with Marathon weekend as Jan 10-13. So I guess it's official. I can't wait for that registration to open. I need to sign up for Goofy before I chicken out!
