Just FYI in case some of you aren't looking at the DL forum:
Costco in various states are selling 4-day PHs for $259.99 includes a $50 Costco cash card. I purchased mine today at the Smokey Point (Arlington), WA store. Limit 5 and must be activated by Feb 2013 (28th I think).

Okay, I already am 40, but if I were to change my name, how would you know it was me?

I am thinking about joining you in Ca. for the Tink! From the GET Travel site it looks like I can still register, but no registration fee is listed. Anyone know what the registration fee is at this point? Unfortunately GET is closed for the weekend...

POST SCRIPT
Looked on the GET site again...$250 for race and a one day park ticket. Doesn't seem bad.

I did it! I am now signed up for both the Tink and the Princess halves..... I have booked my air, hotels and ground transportation.

Now I need to work on a training plan. For those planning to do the Princess, what is your maintenance plan for the weeks inbetween the two races? Is there a Galloway plan for this!

I think I'll try to read all of the posts on here over the weekend....has anyone posted a picture of the medal?

Yay! I'm doing both too. I had a similar situation last year when I ran DL half and then the W&D half about a month later, and if I can remember correctly my weekday runs stayed low, 3 & 4 miles and I think for long runs I ran 7 miles a couple of times, I think a 6 miler and then did a short taper the week before the race. I will say too that my plans for a half never go up to race distance...10 or 11 miles at the most, and I planned to run the W&D last year as more of a fun run to take pics and stuff and wasn't worried about time, so my maintenance plan in between the two races wasn't very aggressive. I plan to do the same with these two races. I'll take Tink a little more seriously and try to do my best, and then Princess will be purely for fun with lots of picture stops. As a side note, who says stuff like that, right??? I'll run a half marathon "purely for fun."

The Tink medal should look the same as last year's, only minus the "inagural" part. It's a beautiful medal...my favorite of all the Disney ones I have so far for sure!

So it looks like I am actually running Tink next year. After finding out the WDW half was full when we tried to switch we made alternative plans. So I'm running Tink for charity again.

Had incredible luck though. I was talking to my Mom who is over near Disneyland right now because of a convention (lucky!) and decided to check and see if any rooms were available at the hotels knowing full luck was against me. Well there was a room available! So we're getting to stay at the Disneyland hotel!

I have some food questions for those who know the area. I will be staying at BW Stovall's Inn. I am not really into fancy meals and like to eat light/healthy. Breakfast is included with my stay and I will have a fridge and microwave in my room. I won't have a car. Is there a grocery store nearby? I am happy to hear about the opening of an Earl of Sandwich at DTD; are there other places onsite/nearby with a good selection of healthy choices?

Thanks!

ESPN Zone, right across from where Earl is going in, has good selections. Their salads are really big. I love their grilled chicken sandwich, you can usually make that 2 sandwiches, b/c they use a whole breast piece. UVA/Catal changed their menu, I know they have some healthy things, just haven't tried it yet. Also, there's La Brea Bakery at the end of DTD by the secuirty entrance to the parks. Next door to Stovall's is Coco's, but as for healthy... There are some good places in the parks too.

For stores, on the corner of Katella and Harbor (a block south of you), is a 7-11. They have a good selection for being a 7-11 ~ kinda like a mini-mart. And next door to them on the Harbor side is a liquor store that has some things also. There's a Target on Harbor, but it's a little further than the 7-11 and w/o a car it might be easier for you w/ 7-11.


Vichi ~ did you have fun down in DL?

We just got back from DL and we stayed at Stovall's so I hope I can help...Not sure about a grocery store location without a car but there is a Coco's that delievers room service to Stovall's guests. And for a Coco's it's ok food for a coffee shop and they bring it to your room which is nice. We are always trying to find light/healthy places and find the DL area a little hard to do that. If you want pasta the night before the race....Marri's Pizza and Pasta which is RIGHT down the street one block away (2 min by car so VERY walkable) We actually ate there twice this trip and great pasta, salads. It's in a little strip mall so don't let the location fool you, we have never had a bad meal there and the staff is very accomodating to special requests.

We're staying at Stovall's too for Tink. It's a perfect location and short walk to the start of the race.

I hope this helps a little. I am also looking forward to the opening of the Earl of Sandwich. I can't wait to try it when we visit at Christmas time.

Kim,

YES !!!! The party was fun and we really enjoyed how the Villians were brought to their meet and greet in Town Square in the horse drawn carriage with the fog and "thunder" ? I hope you had a chance to see that. Crowds were heavier than I thought they would be even during the week. I guess there is never a slow time to go now. We'll be back down in about 4 1/2 wks for Christmas time. Can't wait to see Cars Land dressed up for Christmas.

When is your next trip ??

Have you gone to Marri's for pasta yet ???? You've got to try it before Tink

No!!! I missed the carriage! I would have loved to see that, but I did see them/got pics of them all on the mid level concourse of the train station. When are you going in Dec? I'm trying for a short weekend 8th/9th so long as no weather going over the Grapevine so I can take pics and do the Holiday Tour which sounds like fun. The whole fam is also going down the 20th-22nd. My sister and her BF are flying in and he's never been to CA before so that'll be fun. And she hasn't seen CL yet, can't wait for her to see the finished look. I can't wait to see BV St all done up w/ the period look, but I also love the early LA period so that helps!

Haven't tried Marri's yet, but I have their site bookmarked for the fam trip, b/c I know DL is going to be a zoo then.

We're going Nov 29-Dec 3rd for Candlelight. We go every year for that and didn't try to sch. another weekend since nobody knows how the 20 days of Candlelight is going to really work this year. We'll just stand in the "cheap" seats. I also can't wait for BV Street Decorations !!!!
I'm with you on the weather over the Grapevine. I think wev'e gone through everything...wind,fire, fog, snow, rain storms, flooding it can be SO stressful !!!! I still get stress that closures will happen while we've got to get down there for Tink.

It sounds like you have a fun family trip planned. Your right DL will be a zoo then and Marri's will be a great choice to have a family dinner with good food.

I will start by saying I posted this also in the check in thread... Not sure of the difference.


New to this thread also... I may have posted once long time ago.
Got my husband signed up as well although he is running for a charity since it was sold out. We picked a good one TAPS (helps families of those who have lost a solider in combat) now just to raise the money.

I had to have surgery on a cyst in a odd area so I cant start training till mid November aghh. But I was running before hand and I can still walk so I walk like 6-8 miles a day.

I will be in the last corral no big deal and I have accepted my fate. My goal is to run it in 3 hours thats between 13-14 min miles. I am power walking 15 min miles now and brisk walking 17 min miles. The last time I ran I did 3.7 miles in 40 mins so I am hoping when I can train again I will be good to go. I am also hoping to lose 28 pounds by the race.

We are staying at Grand Cali again we were just there for a wedding but sad we didnt get to go to the Halloween Party. Love the hotel!!!!

We will be also running the Princess 1/2 marathon in Feb. CANT WAIT!!!

How is the Candlelight? Is it worth it to watch? I was talking to my dad about a week ago about the trip and he asked me why I was going 8/9 when we'd all be going in 2 weeks and I just laughed. I told him I wanted to get pics and be able to actually be able to walk around the park and be able to get on some rides. I really excited for my sister to see the changes in the parks and her bf to see the parks for the 1st time, but if we get on 15 rides total in the 2 days, honestly, I'll be happy.

Hi! The only difference b/w the 2 is that one is in the DL part of the threads and this 1 is in the WISH Community/Healthy section. Some people pop back and forth b/w the 2 and others post in 1 or the other. The DL thread also helps nonrunners who are planning trips that weekend and on that side know that there are the races going on so they don't go in blindsided when they see 13,000 women and a few good men running early in the morning on Sunday!
