My idea was to give the elite women enough of a head start (maybe 10-15 mins?) so that only someone in that corral would be able to cross the tape first, and that way men could be seeded in A if need be. The separate chute idea is interesting, too! As the grow this race, hopefully Disney comes up with a solution that is safe for all involved
I may have found a loophole....the following provides an interesting answer:

Hi all! I just found this thread. I am running the Princess. I'm so nervous/excited. I've only done 5k's and one 10k a few weeks ago. The furthest I've gone in training so far is 8 miles. I'm not looking to break any personal records, I just want to finish. I definitely think I have it in me and I know that's half the battle.

I have a friend who will be down from Mi that weekend. She didn't even know this existed and was really bummed it was sold out. Anyone know of any way she could be able to run it with me? I've heard of people selling their bibs. Anyone have one, or know of one up for grabs? We would both be delighted if she could participate.

Someone posted on here they were looking for a buyer for their entry. Don't remember who so you will have to look back and try to find the post. It wasn't too long ago, maybe a week or so. Good luck!

Not sure what's going on with my foot but it isn't PF. Today was my best day since 1/31 though! I'm going to take it slow the next few days. I'm very optimistic! Thanks for the words of encouragement!

My girls say THANK YOU to you princesses. You helped us raise over $1000 and then I got inspired to make a video with the kids which inspired more and we're at $1328 now. Wow! That's over 66 kids in poverty vaccinated. Super duper
What an inspiring video... You should be so proud of your girls!

I'm in on this. I was suppose to take my last long run yesterday but the snow made it impossible. I'm going out today but I know I can't run in my normal pace. This sucks! I was thinking about using the thread mill at the gym, but I would rather do an outside run. 11 miles on a thread mill... No thanks!

I'll be wearing this on the back of my t-shirt, so say Hi if you see me. My t-shirt is just plain purple, so I wanted to put something on the back and that's when I came up with this idea.

add me to the list of people who thinks disney dropped the ball a little on the princess half. the iGiftBag has a section on the new balance runDisney shoes. when you click on them for more information it has all links to the marathon weekend. talks about seeing that at the expo on jan 10-12, 2013. um, hello?? it's february now. time to move to the next race! it even has a bunch of traning plans....for the january marathon weekend. boo.

i don't know. just seems like they could have updated everything before sending it out.

that being said, i'm looking forward to princess weekend. i haven't run since my 8 miler last sunday. i've had some motivational issues. i'm going to run today though. maybe another 8 miles. of course all the snow isn't going to help...

good luck to all in the home stretch! looking forward to seeing you all there. after the 5k i'm going to the WISH meet up at DTD. and i'll be wearing my WISH shirt at the race!

A lot of training plans only bring you up to 10 miles, the theory being that if you can do 10 in training, then you can do a half. In fact, I really hope that's the case since I'm doing 10 today. It will be my farthest before the half. Next week I'm cutting back.

You will both be fine! I wouldn't sweat it at all. You're trained and ready. Start your taper period and get excited!

You should have what you've been having before your long training runs. Keep doing what has worked for you to this point. Don't try anything new in your routine.

Thank you - I was starting to get very nervous.

I wouldn't know since they still can't seem to be able to get any emails to me...which is just another problem that seems to happen more and more. I don't know if by adding new races and increasing the size of the current ones has caused all these issues or what (maybe a case of biting off more than you can chew?)....but it's disappointing that there are so many snafus, yet the races cost us more and more each year. Sure, most of them are really small things individually, but together they pile up and diminish the experience as a whole, in my opinion...from registration day to the starting fireworks. I hope they can get it all sorted out and properly organized before they decide to take on any more.

Good luck getting your run in today...stay warm!

Quick Question

What time does everyone leave their resorts to head to the start line? I'm staying at AKL and trying to decide the best time to leave.

Last long run done. 11.15 miles average 15:11. Longest I've ever run. Temps here started at 60 degrees at 7 am when I started. It's 70 right now. This would be perfect conditions in two weeks. You never know, Florida can be extremely bipolar temperature wise
