Nope. It was definitely happening last year. They did not cancel emh that weekend.

We stayed on site and my plan was to get into DCA after the race to ride rsr before the rush! I didn't go but that was my original plan

It also explained the change in route from 2012. 2012 you ran DL first and them streets of Anaheim, finishing up by running DCA at end. That's because DL had emh On Sundays- Or maybe no one did. Don't rennet. Anyway, changed up the schedule for emh and DCA now had them. So the route changed and we run through DCA first now.

I remember all this because I was so upset about the route change at the time. But the emh made it necessary.

I think it was available too because my DS also ran the race. I was in the last corral, I think he was in C. He finished the race, ran back to VGC and showered and hit RSR in the single rider line twice and made it back to see me finish. I finished at 9:00.

stuff" to do

I'd really like to do the 12 and then one more long of run 12-14, but if it doesn't happen I can make the 10 work for me. I'll have to, right?

How are the injuries? Everyone check in! We are in the home stretch here!

In another 2 weeks we should have waivers and course (I hope!) and all that good stuff.

Course issue--- something that I'm a little concerned about now. The hours were released for Sunday and DCA opens at 8am for EMH that morning. I wonder if they will be changing the course to accommodate this? Last year the end of the run was through DCA (and I was hoping we would get a Carsland detour this year!) but with the EMH and the sheer numbers of people heading right to CL, I wonder if we will see a different map.

Race starts at 5, but there are certainly people who will be out there until almost 9.

Come on Disney! We wanna see the course!
Here's my obsessing from 2012- lol. This is what I was talking about.

Hi
I am doing the half (3rd year in a row) and the 10k.

Right now we are booked at HoJos in a kids suite. We usually go to HoJos 5x year (we have APs) and the kids suite is great for race day because I can sleep in a separate room from DH and my youngest daughter (light sleeper) and get up early and leave without waking them up. However, the price is high ($700 for 3 nights) and its about a 15-20 min walk to the start/finish/expo.

I also booked Stovall's Best Western- great price $353 for 3 nights (they still had rooms as of today)! This looks like is SUPER close to the start/finish and that would be really nice for me given i'll be up really early on sat and sun. I'm curious though how long of a walk it is to the DL entrance. It looks like we could cut through the GCH to DTD/CA to save some time. We are used to the walk from HoJos which is about 8 min. We will not take the shuttle- we'd rather just walk even if its longer.

(I love their tink "race legs" and "race wings")

Oh, and just keep in mind it is WARM that time of year in Anaheim. The first year I wore short crops and a technical t-shirt and I was TOO hot. Last year I wore a running skirt and tank top and was much better. Be sure and bring sunglasses/hat and put on sunscreen before the races.

We typically stay at the hojo for now race trips and love it. However, for the race we are staying at Stovalls. The distance to the start and finish is great and it is about 15 minutes to the gate. You do cut through the GC.

We stay at BW Stovall's for Tink. It is super easy to get to and from DTD - cutting through Grand CA. Unless you're going to the park, there is no security search! The walk is also super easy to/from the Expo and especially to/from the start/finish line. BW Stovall's cannot be beat for Tink Half. But that's my opinion - having stayed there the past 2 Tink's...and booked for Tink '14!!

BTW, when I did Disneyland Half and shared a room with DH and DD last summer, I brought along an eye mask and ear plugs. I went to bed super early while they went and explored DTD a little bit. I slept with my phone tucked under me so I would feel the vibration of the alarm. Because of the plugs and mask, I never was disturbed when they returned to the room. You can buy ear plugs at Target for super cheap, I recommend the kid ones that are formable, not the plastic reusable ones.

I ran 7.3 miles today. I'm training for my 10k in September. Gotta run that so I can have timed race for Tink.

My butt is so sore. My friend/trainer thinks it's my siatic nerve. Not happy about this development. Any suggestions?

Try a foam roller if you haven't already. Also, are you following a 10k training plan? I only ask to make sure you didn't up your mileage too fast, which can lead to injury/soreness.

I will try the foam roller. I have been running for a couple years and started increasing my miles in the last couple months. I guess I'll pop back down to 5 miles and see how that goes. Vacation is going to force a break from the long runs for the next week. I hope that helps it out.

Chiropractor. Every little ache and pain and tingling down my legs, up my spine, etc. all seem to be addressed by an adjustment. I saw another post about foam rolling - that too. But an adjustment from a chiro can do major wonders!

I second that! I see mine about once a month for a "tune up" and always schedule what I call my Humpty Dumpty appointment a few days after a race for him to put me back together again in case I pushed too hard and hurt something.
