I really want to stop for the heroes and the villains plus the castle shot. The rest of the pictures will be bonus!

SO sorry to hear about your loss! Our pets are such wonderful additions to our family, its very hard to say goodbye. Hugs to you.

Must do stops... Villans, Capt Jack, the Heroes, and might have to do Cindy since I am her sister! The lines do move pretty fast, don't be discouraged if they look long, but if you stop at all the long lines, it can add some time to your race. In Epcot whoever is standing around usually has VERY little lines I think cuz people want to be done!

I'm so sorry! We said goodbye our black lab last year and we miss her every single day.

Well, I find out that yes, there is a problem and we all know AC work is stupid expensive...but apparently I'm also starting to have a problem with the power steering pump. jeeze louise...my car's not that old! And on top of all that, I start to see a pattern in thinking "oh, that juice I just took from the fridge doesn't seem very cold..." and then yesterday notice some things in the freezer not quite as frozen as they should be...like almost totally thawed. unbelievable...everything's breaking at once!!! I need to be somewhere that I can forget I even have a fridge or car...calgon take me away!!!!
I know how you feel. I was waiting for DH to meet me yesterday after my class and I get a text that his car won't start. WE had to have it towed and then found out that it would be several thousand dollars to fix. Of course his ancient car had a ton of miles on it but I was hoping to wait until next year to replace it.

I was waiting for registration for Wine and Dine to open and I had also talked DH into Sea Wheeze in Vancouver. Was going to make those reservations today. BUT instead I ended up using that money to get a new car. Unfortunately DH and my hours don't mesh so one car just won't make it for us.

On the bright side I got the new car, DH took my car for himself. I guess it will be a local half marathon for me this fall.

I hope everything works out for you and doesn't cost to much money. Have fun running with all the other princesses.

Must dos are the Villains, Merida (she better be on course), Cinderella and Charming if the line isn't extremely long, Belle, and Pocahontas. I might stop for the heroes if the line isn't too long but I got a photo with them last year so they aren't top priority. Villains are top priority (line was moving excruciatingly slow and I had to ditch it).

I wanted to facepalm yesterday when they uploaded the Princess photo on the Facebook page. If you are going to ignore us for the most part at least have the decent courtesy to actually pick a photo from the right race. I recognized that stop from the inaugural Tinkerbell. Wasted almost 40 minutes in that line (corral placement for me was funny that year). It was worth the photo, it was so worth the photo (right up there with my running with Minnie photo as my favorite race photos).

But seriously its our anniversary year and we have all been ignored for the most part. On a normal year I could maybe understand it (still be annoyed though). But on an anniversary year?

I feel your pain! I teach Kindergarten and am sneezed on every day. Gah! I have a slight cold right now but not too worried because I figure it should go away and I shouldn't get another til after the race!

Thank you Wooo...picture with heroes sounds lovely One quick question - has anyone seen Darth Vader as one of the characters?? I'll be dressed up as Princess Leia so I thought that may be cool, but never heard anyone talk about meeting the Sith Lord so I was curious.

You've got to come up for Sea Wheeze! I'll be running it and my youngest DD will be part of the entertainment on the course!

I haven't seen him in either 2011 or 2012. Maybe this year since Leia has been added? That would be cool. I got a pic with him at Tink! Long line though- be prepared

Some of the people on the Run Disney facebook page are mentioning the cover photo being posted? I can't seem to find the darn thing (the most recent thing I see is concerning ToT 10 miler). And I can never seem to determine sarcasm from non-sarcasm. So anyone know if this is true? And where the heck I can get it?

Yeah I so very much want to run it. It is my birthday and would be a perfect bd present. It looks like such a beautiful coarse, even with the hills.

I am trying to figure out how to come up with the money so we can still make it.
I just might make the hotel ressies anyway because I can always cancel with no cost if I do it far enough ahead. Is this a race that sells out quickly? When do I have to make my decision by?

Sending good vibes out there to all those Princesses dealing with hard situations these last few weeks. Hope things start looking better soon

In my case, the snow from Nemo had me sidelined for a while and they're predicting more snow in the coming days! Fortunately I was able to complete my last long run today while it was nice out: 11.1 miles I considered just tapering as I'd already completed a 10+ miler previously - but I needed to prove it to myself mentally. Boy it was hard but I'm glad I went for it. And I figure the time I spent avoiding ice patches was training for watching out for crowds come race day.

The only other good news from Nemo is that I finished my costume!! I'll try to post a photo later - I'm pretty ecstatic about how it turned out
