I was in C last year and I know we got our own start but I dont think we had fireworks. I think the fireworks just went off one time but then each corral got its own announced start. Anyone else rmeember?

I run with my phone on an armband. I just started doing intervals. I have a free app called: interval timer. You can set it for whatever interval you like. It vibrates and makes a sound. You can use it with other apps, I run with spotfy and run keeper, they all work together. HTH.

Last year for Tinker Belle I wore my long running pants and over them I wore the sparkle lite (the one without shorts) and a short sleeve tech shirt. I was not to hot at all during the race and it took me 3 hr 45 min to run it.

I got a sparkle tech (with the shorts) and ran the Nike women's half in DC and the Portland Rock and Roll. I have quite a bit of chub on the thighs and found that the short legs stayed in place and did not ride up. No chaffing on the chub. I had run in the skirt for two 3 mile training runs before I ran the half so the skirt had not been washed but 2 times.

I did find that I spent a lot of time pulling the skirt up on my waist. I'm not used to wearing anything on the "natural" waistline so was uncomfortable with the skirt being a little low.

I bought another skirt in the hickerchic design. The skirt is a 2 inches longer and the legs are 1 inch longer. I also bought it one size larger than the other skirt. This one I have done multiple mid length runs 4-7 mils and I wear it a lot for my bike rides and can say that I do not have the problem with where it sits on my waist or feeling the need to pull it up. The legs also stay in place quite well, no riding up or rubbing on runs or bike rides.

If you are unsure get the sparkle lite and wear it over your compression shorts that you like it see how you feel about the skirt. You can always branch out to the sparkle tech if you decide you like them.

There is a sparkle skirts facebook page where some of the girls are selling their skirts. That might be a way to get one at a lesser cost to try and see how you like them?
I appreciate your review of the sparkle skirts. I too am in the same ballpark size wise and was wondering how a bigger gal feels in them.

I'm running the Tink half!!!!!!!!! This will be my second RunDisney event.

first 10 k

Ok, I just ran/walked my first 10k--1 hour 15 minutes. I had a blast!!! Should I submit the time to the Tinkerbell 10k or should I just not worry about it and be in the last group to run? I am supposed to do another 10 k in October as well. Thanks y'all!

That is just over a 12 min pace which would be a 2:38 half. That should put you in at least corral D and probably corral C. You should definitely submit the time.

Those of you who have experience with GetTravel - what I am understanding from the e-mail I received from Bill is that for each night you spend at a DLR hotel, you get $25 towards your theme park tickets so long as the balance is paid by 12/18. So if we spend 3 nights, we'd get $75 off our theme park tickets - is this the GetTravel promo rate, or full price? I know he is super busy this week leaving for DLR so I figured I'd ask here rather than pester him.
