Thanks for the responses about the buses. I think we return to the hotel and then hop the bus to the expo. Hope we have enough time to make it to the kid races.

If it's the Mickey Mile, note that the start time is 1.5 hours after the start of the other kids races.

That was a good one - has anyone seen this one? Not specific to marathon training, but still funny and I am sure some people here can relate to the sacrifices made while training.

Unfortunately no. The youngest starts at 11:15. No shower for DH until later.

Bag check I've never done. I know for W&D people changed out of their running clothes because they hung around EPCOT for another couple of hours but personally I have what I call my "personal bag check" aka my sister who is meeting me near the finish. On me I'll have my phone, camera and room key but I'll have her bring a jacket if it's chilly and my flip flops so I can take my sneakers off. I LOVE being able to take my sneakers off.

I can already hear myself going "aaahhh" as I slide them off and wait to see if I still have all my toenails...

Holy Cow this thread is moving fast! I would love a tattoo but I don't think we are going to make it. I promised the kids we would go to AK but if we have time we will come by. Thanks for the offer; where did you get them by the way? I will look for all you lime green folks and wish shirts!

Hi all! 2 random questions

1) After the half, is there a place to get our medals engraved? I got them done for ToT and W&D, but both of those had in park parties afterwards. Do they have them in the parking lot somewhere or not do them?

2) Question about PT...I have gone 2 times now for my knee (no one can decide if its ITBS or runners knee or both). Anyways, the first time was last Thursday. The physical therapist showed me a bunch of stretches to do and how to use a foam roller and told me to do them at home. Great. So I've been doing them everyday. I went back yesterday and they just had me do the same thing again. Nothing new. Is that normal? I feel like I paid $25 for what I had been doing at home!

Most of the work for PT is knowing what to do and doing it. For ITBS the foam roller and ITBS stretches are the key (and not increasing mileage or distance too much and not running on sloped roads). For Runner's Knee it is usually about getting the inflammation down and strengthening your quads. That's about all that really can be done.

It should be easy to distinguish the two. ITBS hurts directly on the exterior side of the knee. Runner's Knee is like under the knee cap. I have had both in the past. If you have ITBS, be very careful at WDW. The roads are highly canted in many places. Always look for where the road is the flattest and try and stay on that line.

Last January, there was a tent area where you could take your medal and have it engraved on the spot. It costs $25 'cash' and you give them your medal and wait about 15 minutes before it is completed. They have a laptop and pull your official finish time right there if you want that engraved. So bring some cash with you.

If PT has given you a regimen of strengthening and stretching to do, and you are comfortable doing them on your own, then my opinion (not medical) is that you should be fine doing it on your own. I speak from experience. I went to PT for IT band when I first had it and at $100+ a pop for sessions it was an expensive fix. In January when I had strained hip flexors, I just had the doc give me the exercises and skipped PT.

PT is great for some injuries--they helped me when I had my herniated cervical disk (diagnosed it before my sports med guy)--but for others, I think--and my doctor thinks--it's okay to go it alone.

That's exactly why I stopped going to PT--except my copay was $60!! We never did anything hands-on, she just gave me things to work on at home. I quit after the third appointment. Obviously this would vary person to person, but no, I don't think it's incredibly uncommon.
