i am getting so excited for the race! FINALLY decided on what to wear...I am going as Anastasia and my friend Patty whom I met here on Dis last year (longhorns2) will be Drizella. Can't wait to see how our costumes come out. Just basic running attire jazzed up a little! And I normally only wear mascara for photos, but this year, I am all about lipstick too LOL. And if it smears, who cares!

I am hoping with my remaining long runs I will get prepared for the distance without injury. I swear with each little tweak in my calves and feet I get so paranoid. I was supposed to run today, but my shin is a bit sore, so resting one more day...but i WILL get it done tomorrow!

Hellllooooo everyone. Well, I did 10 miles today! I walked, jogged and ran. Stopped at the grocery store to pee, LOL, and got a blister on one toe. But ya know what? I still did it. All the while I was out there, I kept thinking about all the advice and words of encouragement I get from all of you. That is the farthest I have ever gone in my life! I want to send out hugs to all from this Florida gal! We can do this! We are women, hear us roar! Thanks to the guys on the board, too. Drinks for everyone!

PrincessA: non-alcoholic for you and the baby, LOL

Cheers and thanks,

Cindy

I somehow never posted or subscribed to this thread. I guess I was so focused on finishing the Goofy that I neglected the Princess!
I did my first post-Goofy long run this morning. 9 miles on the treadmill because it was 11F outside and we had snow overnight. My biggest nightmare is slipping on the ice and getting injured!
I'm dragging my husband and 3 kids to the 5k (stroller division) and then we're doing the breakfast afterwards. Looking forward to my 1st Princess Half!!!

Congrats, that's awesome! There's no better feeling than completing a double-digit run for me these days -- enjoy your accomplishment!

Extra Race Retreat Ticket

I am in desperate need of an extra Race Retreat ticket for the Princess Half Marathon. Does anyone have an extra ticket they are not using that I can buy?

Thanks!!

What do you ladies do? I'm supposed to go for 12 tomorrow but am terrified of slipping and hurting myself in the snow/ice. I don't have treadmill access either. :-/

Should I just plan to wait for a warm front to come in and melt the snow? It's so pretty; but it's also cold and messing up my training plan. Can't wait to be in my home state again soon!!

Look for cleared roads/sidewalks. Slow down, slightly. Get some studded shoes or YakTrax or something similar. Dress in layers. Cover your face, head, ears, hands, etc. Most of all, have fun!

I had not considered getting there early to enjoy the race retreat....good idea! . Does anyone know if they have a toaster at the RR? I will likely bring my own food, but do like to toast my bread.

Congrats on getting out there and doing the miles, ladies! I am debating whether I will do 5 miles today or rest. I rested much of the months of Dec. and Jan. due to an injury and I wanted to be in best shape possible for the Tink. NW that that is behind me, I got back to 2 runs this week and worked with a trainer yesterday. I can tell my foot is still not up to par. I don't plan on any run over 5 miles between now and the Princess. I'll be doing 5 on my treadmill either today or tomorrow.

I am back from Tink and I am working on my trip report with photos so I will post it soon. There was no greater feeling than crossing that finish line. LOVED IT can't wait for PHM.

Yup! I'm a stalker! Looks like last years were up on Jan 20. So should be any day now! I'm dying to know what corral I am in!

H Amanda! Good to see you over here! Congrats on Goofy! I have it on my list for next year. I just finished my first marathon and was a bit neglectful of my fellow princesses too. Sorry ladies. So excited to be going back in less than a month. The temps here suck for running out side so I've been hitting the TM. Not my favorite but it's getting the job done. I did a fast 5 today. Hoping to get a 10 in sometime in the next week. Not sure how to taper for PHM since I've been doing shorter runs since the marathon, mostly due to time constraints.
