Its okay - I blame Patty for Princess, Summer for Dumbo and YOU for Nike San Francisco!

Don't be scared - just run easy on Sat...you're in the parks almost the whole time so lots of photo ops - take them. You'll be good to go for Sunday.

It's really easy planning for DL. Like the pp mentioned, the parks are across from one another so it's really easy to park hop, the hotels surround the resort so no need for shuttles. You don't need dining plans at DL, and the only ADR's you really would need to make would be for Blue Bayou and Carthay Circle; and maybe Napoli's in DTD if you're carb loading just as a precaution.

2. Did you go to the parks on Saturday after the 10K?
Running some parts both days didn't feel less special. Plus if you buy the race pics or take your own it gives you 2 chances to get the best shot. I went into the DL after too for a couple of hours. When I got back to the room, I did a short ice bath, had some chocolate milk w/ pb & a bagel and like Sarah, I wore compression socks and drank a lot of water all day. Muscle-wise my legs were fine that day and the next. My problem Sun was coming off the flu combined w/ the weather.

I finally updated the list of everyone, and I think I got everybody, so if I missed you or a race, let me know and I'll update it again.

Yaaaaaaayyyyyyyy. You'll love it.

I loved the 10k course!!!!! Loved. It.

I didn't go parks after 10k though. I was worried about my feet due to the temps I get blisters easily.

But I can't wait for tink now!

HAHAHAHAHAHA, Sucker!!!!

Amazing what that % Sold Ticker will do to us RD addicts. I felt the same way with the 1/2, even though I had already decided to run only the 5 and 10. Thank goodness it sold out so darn quick, I was put out of my misery!!!!!

DD has the kids races on Saturday at 10 and I know we'll be going to the parks after that. I'm just concerned it will be "too much" to do the 10K, park during the day and then run the half the next morning.
1. Not at all! It was still absolutely awesome, although getting as many miles as we did in the parks for the 10K and then barely getting any for the half was a bit of a bummer.

2. Nope! I went back home and napped and stretched all day. If I was visiting and not local I probably would have.

Tink will be perfect for back to back races!
Glad it wasn't just me! Originally I wanted to try and PR this time around, but I'm glad everything worked out the way it did. That's what January is for from here on out.

SeaWheeze is the Lululemon half here in Vancouver and it is incredible! Its the most beautiful course ever and the swag is great. Its in August but registration will open in January probably and it sells out quickly. Its a whole weekend event in the city complete with concert, beer garden, party in Stanley Park the night of the race. There is yoga all over the city all weekend, they'll do your hair even for you! You get a wrist band at packet pickup and that's your admission ticket for everything all weekend long.

All my running buddies need to come up here for it!

I totally agree. It sounds beautiful! I'm gonna have to look into it a bit. DH and I have always wanted to go to Vancouver. Too bad it wont be hockey season though. I'd love to go to a game in Canada!
