Nope....not through Disney like other sporting events. You can check sites like Undercover Tourist. I finally just ordered mine through work. Ouch!

I don't trust Accuweather. More of a weather.com girl. Accuweather was so wrong here in central TX in one of the cold snaps a couple of weeks ago...for a short term forecast, no less! They said it was going to get down to 25 degrees, so I called my BF to make sure all the pipes were dripping and protected and worried needlessly. Only got down to 33 or 34. 8-9 degrees is a fairly big miss when you are only 12 hours out. (more understandable for long range) Weather.com called it much closer.

So, I won't really look at WDW weather until about Jan. 1, and won't finally pack until closer to Jan 7-8.

Ran 5 Christmas miles yesterday--felt good but it was so hot!!! I've been trying to get in some yoga to help stretch my muscles--things are getting tight.

Today I am sending out a ton of race metals to Medals4Mettle. Hopefully it will help others in their fight.

I wouldn't be too concerned with the forecasts yet--we're still a long way out--my husband is a meteorology nut and even he doesn't look this far ahead (stay positive, right!!).

Have a great day everyone!

ALMOST wiped out this morning. I was running late (as usual) to work and while running across the parking lot, I slipped on a piece of black ice.

Whoa!! My left arm hurts from the way I threw it back to steady myself, but I'm so happy I didn't fall this close to the marathon!! It's the little things that make me happy.

Hope everyone had a WONDERFUL Christmas!

Lets not forget 2010! 70's on Friday 30's and snow/sleet/rain for the half and freezing for the full. I was standing in line with a bunch of guys from Brazil after the half for the bus and those poor guys were blue from the cold lol. Definitely knocking on wood as I type this.

My first marathon

Hi, Everyone,
I just joined and am popping in to say hello. I'm a veteran of many runDisney races, but this will be my first marathon. Training has gone well...now time to taper.

Good luck everyone!

My husband has one as well and said he barely notices it's there.
I have the same belt and love it. I've not tried using the water bottle holder for a cell phone but that is a good idea and I'm going to try that. I used the toggles to hold my bib recently in a race and it was so nice since I could layer on top and not worry about covering my number. And the belt really stays put. I wear it low and snug on my hips. No bounce at all. I also have the belt from ifitness that has the double pouch. It is good too and I rigged it to hold my race bib with an extra set of toggles that they gave me. They have a new sunglasses add on. Hopefully they will have one at the expo that I could try and maybe buy.

I have this fuelbelt http://www.fuelbelt.com/s.nl/it.A/id...=2865&color=33
I also bought an extra pouch you can slide on which gives me 2 zippered pockets. One for my cell phone and one for keys/ID. This isn't enough water for me but I use it to supplement the water stops.

I wasn't so lucky today. I was goofing off with DS in the parking lot this morning on the ice and I fell back and busted my head open. Went to emergency clinic and got 5 staples in my head.

My neck is killing me and is going to be worse over the next couple of days. I was supposed to do 10 today. I think its going to keep me from doing anything until at least the weekend. At least my last 20 was last week.

Merry Christmas everyone! I received a Christmas Eve present from my husband. He took me to have a pedicure ; two days after my last long run. The tech massaged my legs and calves with oiled hot stones!!! Oh my...it was heaven and totally took away the soreness!!

This is a non-running related post but I could really use some extra prayers. My mom collapsed on Christmas Eve and is in the ICU in critical condition. The prognosis is poor. This was completely unexpected. Please keep her and especially my step-dad in your thoughts and prayers.
I'm still planning to run the Goofy as she would never forgive me if I missed it on her behalf.
