I've got another idea for you......I just got a mailer from RoadRunner Sports and in the book they showed Run, Walk, Capri and Pants in short (tall also) inseams. Price is lower if you sign up to be a VIP.

Nordstrom also has their "in house" line Zella that has pants in different lenghts. Free shipping and always outstanding return policy if something just doesn't work.

Good luck

I so already am a road runner VIP! See, I need a field trip. Title 9 is located next door to Road Runner. I just need a day where I can drive down there and back....

Good morning! We are about 2 months out! Time to get this party started in here!

We have made arrangements for my father in law, so my husband will be making the trip with me. . Since we'll be there for 5 days and there will now be 1 of us, I am thinking of switching from Stovall's Best Western to a suite at the Hampton Inn in Garden Grove. Each place includes breakfast with the rate. The upside to Hampton is that it is larger and we'll have a kitchen. Downside is that it is a bit farther. Anyone have thoughts on either of these?

Also, our plan is to keep our bodies on East Coast time.......

Stovalls is so convenient for the race. Especially an early start race. They also had food out early for the runners. It is however a motel with thin walls.

Personally, I would stay at Stovalls. You can't beat the location for pre/post race. Also staying 5 days...dealing with driving to the park may get old. At least at Stovalls you can walk to DTD and to the parks with out getting in a car, bus or tram.

Sold! Thanks for your input. And of course I meant that there will be 2 of us....that is why I was thinking about getting a larger room. But, I looked at some of the pictures of the rooms at Stovall's and they seem pretty big. So, that is where we will be.

Now, what's the countdown?!

I think you'll be happy with your choice! I've heard good things about Stovall's and I always stay within walking distance. It just makes things easier and you dont waste time driving and parking and such.

I'm super excited! Can't believe we're two months out!!!! Training has been spotty lately thanks to a couple injuries but everything feels good now so time to get ready!!!

Yesterday was my first officiial training run for the Tink. Last week I finished the Galloway Wine and Dine schedule. Yesterday I did a 45 minute workout with hill sets. Tomorrow I will run a local Thanksgiving Day 10k. I will see how I feel Friday about working out.....

The Galloway program I am following for Tink is for time improvement and includes speed work. According to the schedule this weekend is 8 x 800. Since I haven't done speed work like that before, I may just do 2 x 800 but cover the same overall distance.

Happy Thanksgiving one and all! I for one am glad I have this race to keep me focused through this holiday season!

RunDisney posted a teaser on FB about an hour ago..."Forget Black"! If you missed out, we've got something coming back at 12 AM ET on Friday for a limited time that will make you want to..." and then a pick of Tink with the caption "Get your Green On"

I'm thinking they are opening up some more spots maybe? I

Bump!

I wonder how much of a response "green Friday" is getting? Anyone recruit a running buddy for this race?

I completed a 10K Thanksgiving race and took yesterday off. I have a 8 miles scheduled and will work in some speed work with that.

I am not so much into costumes, but came across a Tink colored running shirt that will be perfect for the race. I may train in that today to see how it feels. It made its way to the bottom of the drawer years ago due to color and it has a very high neck......

What was the green thing all about anyway? I never saw another post other than the teaser.

Just wanted to say thanks for all who posted about the weekend event on Run Disney for Tink.

My schedule for Labor Day was looking a little chaotic for this coming year and I was not sure how I was going to get my Coast to Coast this year.

But I let the runner's high from my 18 mile run on Saturday take over and signed up for Tinkerbell.

With Goofy the weekend before I am going to be one tired mousekeeter, but it will be worth it!

Happy and healthy training everyone!
