The JetBlue terminal at DCA is short on amenities, so you may want to eat before you go through security, seeing as how you'll be there around lunchtime. Just an FYI...

Sure. Our kids did fine at breakfast with some muffins and fruit back in December, but the options were limited to about that.

I'm going to be in MK on Friday night. I think anyone who's going to be there should join me in showing Gaston how big our muscles are.

Good luck everyone ... have fun!!
Yep, me too on the long run. Funny thing is that I had the same thing in 2011 and had no real problem (minus that Achilles thing lol). This year I've managed to sneak in some long runs on both Sat and Sun two weeks ago and a 8 miler on the treadmill Sun. You'll do just fine

Jules, too funny - we'll see you there!

Last short run early this morning - not a great one, but fine. I was doing stuff around the house and forgot to eat my usual banana & drink my usual glass of water. I'd rather have an off run today, though, than Saturday - ready as I'll ever be for my first half!

For me, an ice cold 12oz can of fully carbonated coca-cola. I don't think I would drink the entire thing, but man I would probably pay $5 an ounce. I have pondered the option of stopping at McDonalds, just don't know if I would pull the trigger.
A Coke sounds pretty good! A few bites of NY cheese pizza. Pineapple juice.
Not within reason, but a wish just the same...pain-free!

Finally had my first marathon dream last night, as many of you already shared! I was running with my 8 year old daughter, who's not even a runner. My 10 year old is! We were getting off a ride, I think Animal Kingdom (old course) because I had 10 more miles to go and 1 hour left till the 7 hour cut-off, and she decided she was done. Not gonna finish, just giving up. So I left her with my parents and I thought I could still finish. I actually did the math, remembering that with me being in corral D, I actually had a 28 minute cushion. So I took off running thinking I could do 10 miles in 1 hour 28 minutes. I'm about an 11-12 min mile runner!! Not gonna happen. But I was thinking to myself, darn it, I trained for so long and so hard I'm not gonna give up. Otherwise I'd have to go through this training again because I will get that Goofy medal. Oh yes, I will. And I soooo don't wanna do this training again!!!

Silly dream. I guess I'm determined.
I had a bad marathon dream two nights ago. I forgot my Garmin, we got lost on the race course, I had no idea how far we had gotten. Somehow we ended up in DHS early in the race and I got upset because I knew it was supposed to be near the end. On the plus side, right before I woke up, I saw the mile marker 19 - so even in a bad dream I made it that far!

Gu has to be checked. The other stuff can be in your carry on or checked - your preference.

Thanks!!
1) Either. Pack gels in a zip lock because one will seep; especially if not in the baggie.. On business trips where I am only carrying on, I have only been questioned once. ( I guess I should say that I usually do not include in my 311 baggie.) To be safe, include in the 311 baggie if you have room. For Disney, I pack mine in the checked bag. This is one of those items you would hate to lose but is very replaceable if that were to occur. I check mine for the convenience.

2) Same. They can be carried on if you have space. I pack mine. If you have not thought ahead here, bring an extra zip lock for your race day supply.

3) Of the 3, I would be more likely to carry this on. Since it comes in an expensive and large tub, you would hate to have to replace in a pinch then try to make room for the tub on the way home.

Hope this helps. YMMV

Actually, Gus can go either way. The requirement is a container less than 3.4 oz. I carry mine on when traveling a short trip. Check for Disney as I need room in the carry on.

Your dream should be a reminder that you should erase previous workouts from memory; especially on a model older than the 610.



[ADDED] Did I really say 'Gus' can go either way? Spell corrector got me. GU's can go...
