Thanks! I did and went and got the tape last night. How long did it take for you to feel a difference in your pain level?

It is under Member Extras, then special offers. I believe they have a $10 dvc discount for every half and full and $20 off for the goofy.

Got it - thanks so much! I saw that before but I had been looking for a link to click. I didn't realize the title was a link until I accidentally moved my mouse over it.

Yes, check out You Tube for instructions on taping the IT band/knee. I found the video they have helpful and it made it easy for me to tape myself.

I used it for the marathon and noticed that it helped support my ankles/knee quite a bit. I didn't have much pain after the race except for stairs, although I did get swept at 21 so I didn't actually finish the last 5.2 miles.

I had it on for about two days after the race, then my mom and sister-after managing to get their own tape off- spent about an hour with baby oil and nail polish remover pads trying to help me get it off. I had some of the sticky stuff on me for about two weeks- no matter how much I tried and scrubbed I could not get it off.

That said, besides the issues getting it off, I think it helped and I'll use it again.

RunDisney wants to do a relay, and they get an A for effort, but they seem to fail miserably at doing it and get an F for application.

Dressed up as a Modern santa for a december 5k. Dressed up for Tinkerbell half, red wings and all. Just dressed up for the Yuengling Shamrock half as a leppruchan, orange sideburns and all. But for the W&D I am going to be more focused on the after party and I don't feel like carrying around a costume all night, maybe I'll wear a local beer tshirt and one of those beer helmets...

How was the Yuengling race? I wanted to do it, but it was a little far for a 5k

The Yuengling Shamrock weekend offers several races for everyone in the family. A mile run for youngsters, 8K, Half and Full. The course is super flat and fast, many use it to qualify for Boston.
J&A put on the best races. Awesome management. The best after parties for all races on the beach. Great bling. And nice attire to purchase.
Va Beach usually has warmer than normal temps in March, so coming from PA is a break from the cold weather.
My family loves going and this year my DDs, 8 & 9, both ran the 8K. We had a ton of fun.
