I'm sure you'll find us somewhere along the way. Usually takes us about 6-7 hours since we don't just drink and waddle off to the next country. We like to see the exhibits, etc., along the way.

Starting with tequila makes for a really long afternoon. Finishing around dinner time with tequila and Mexican food makes for a great end to the afternoon. Or so we've found out.

Aaaah. Good thinking! See you there! Look down through the crowd because I'm really short, but everyone will probably hear me before they see me! LOL

And BTW Holy Crap! The marathon is only 5 weeks from this weekend!
Great! Glad he's feeling better. And yeah, 35 days until Marathon Weekend starts!!!!!

Just got back from the doctor! He is pretty sure its just shin splits but wants to rule out a stress fracture so I have an MRI scheduled for Monday and a follow up appointment Wednesday. I asked him if he thought it would be ok if I walked the marathon, and he said that would be fine but he'd like to see me run it instead :-) optimism is good medicine, right? Lol!

Has anyone else dealt with shin splints before? How long was your recovery? This has been almost 4 weeks for me now.

It can take forever, especially if one is not resting the small tibial muscles, running on worn out shoes and/or correcting structural issues. Now I am not saying that you are doing any of these three.

Follow the docs orders as you wait for the MRI. I would purchase a calf compression sleeve for comfort. The warm and compression will make the area feel better. On the walk/run it will help keep the inflamed muscle from ‘flopping’ on the foot strike.

At your next visit, see if you can get a PT script; if not already visiting a PT. They will look at the leg structure and give you some work to strengthen the leg.
If you shoes are old – say in the 300+ miles, gab some race shoes for January.
Make sure you are stretching your legs (calves) post run. Also, try shortening your stride just a bit. Over striding can cause the tibial muscles to snap on heal impact which can create the splints.

Hopefully, this is a soft tissue issue and you will be released to get back on course for the race.

Less than 40 days, I've got a countdown at worked and extremely excited! I hope everyone has good runs this week!
Fellow Upstater here! I thought it was a great night to run also. I'm not used to running when it's so dark out so I have to get used to that. I need to get some better reflective wear. So my neighbors say. Any suggestions?

I'm getting pretty excited for our trip too! I've been to WDW a few times during MW but have never competed in it. Can't wait!!

The registration ends December 6 I believe. I did it to help me with training to get me over the 13.1 limit. I did 15.75 miles today and completed the virtual race.

The following link brings you to the race page.

The medal is shown in following link.

If you do register, thanks. They are trying to reach $10,000 for Partners For Life Foundation, created by Lorraine Yaslowitz to memorialize her husband Jeff, a K9 police officer in St. Petersburg, FL lost in the line of duty on January 24, 2011. Last I heard, 15 participants were needed to reach that goal, they had over 240 virtual participants.

Just signed up for this. Thanks for posting

Jennifer

I like the spreadsheet o'fun! One thing we always do during DATW is not repeat colors for drinks. Makes it more interesting that way, so maybe you can add that to your schedule too.

Will do!

Just got an email. shoebuy.com is offering $30 off $60 orders if you use a code and checkout using v.me which I guess is kind of like Paypal.

For all of you who need shoes, here you go!

ShoeBuy: $30 Off $60 Today


Get $30 off any $60 order with code EMLVME30OFF60 when you check out using V.me by Visa at ShoeBuy. This is one of the best coupons we've seen from ShoeBuy! A best bets are thei LifeStride Explode Riding Boots, which drop from $70.95 to $40.95 (which beats our previous low mention by $21), or these Men's Timberland Baluster Chukkas , which drop from $94.95 to $64.95. The V.me option is located above the PayPal option at checkout, has no fee, and accepts all major credit cards. Sales tax is not charged in most states.

For the record, we are not married.

I have a spreadsheet with the same info on it. Though I do note the EMH on the sheet. Crazy stuff

Phew! so happy to know I'm not the only one. My mother is going to flip when she sees my very detailed itinerary. She's used to my dad, who was one to just meander and if he got on a ride, he got on, if we were pissed because we missed out, oh well. LOL

When we do family trips, I am an uber planner as well. For Marathon Weekend, it is just DH and I and we hardly plan anything. I have made only 3 ADRs (Be Our Guest ) and we do have a list of a few things we haven't done before that we would like to do (Segway Tour, Campground) but that's pretty much it. Last year, we spent 7 nights around Marathon Weekend and literally rode less than 10 rides...and had a wonderful time!

Oh and count us in for DATW...I have made shirts!

I do the same thing too. The moment I know I am going to Disney.....*scratch that* Even when I have no immediate plans to go to Disney, I make elaborate spread sheets with park hours/dining plans/not to miss snacks/adult beverages and rides that I don't want to miss. Sometimes I make the mistake of asking DH what he thinks about a particular thing on the itinerary and he's all "I don't know where I want to eat or do in the parks months from now. I don't think about food unless I am hungry and I would rather just decide when we get there, so lets talk about it later". I guess that is why he is so thin! His idea of a vacation is not having to do anything on a timetable and I am the opposite. I like to know what I am doing and when I am doing it. Somehow we always survive our vacations.
