From what I'm seeing, their cover photo s still from the Tink half. They have one for PHM from a while back with the 'in training' on it that you can snag from their photos...wish they would put up a new one now though. Even if its not form PHM, which it should be, it looks weird for them to still have one up for an event that happened almost a month ago.

That's what I thought. I just don't get Run Disney's behavior towards the race this year. With it being an anniversary year you would think there would be a bit more fanfare. We had more fanfare back in 2012 than we are having in the last month before the race. Sure its nothing like the WDW being 20 now but that doesn't change the fact it is an anniversary.

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.
Oh bummer...I hope you're still able to make it to your other trips. I just found out the fridge isn't going to be a terribly expensive ordeal and should be repaired tomorrow afternoon...as long as the two parts needed are available. The cost for the car is making me cringe though! BUT, a good working AC is pretty much essential in these parts, so it has to be done.

On another note, did anyone see that ToT went up to $135????!!!!???? It was $90 last year if I'm remembering correctly. It's really getting out of hand! I hadn't planned to do it again this year, but I was just really shocked at that price increase for that race. I certainly hope they come with the goods to back it up this year for that price!

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?

Last year was the first year for it and normally races don't sell out quickly so I would think you're okay for awhile but don't hold me to it. I really hope you can make it up here and run with me!

I'm starting to think that the cover photo is floating around somewhere on the Run Disney site. There have been a few comments that seemed to suggest that it is out there (someone said they had a friend who changed their cover photo to it, which friend it is I don't know). The question is: Why do some people have it and most don't if it is out?

Germs freak me out... I am just sure I will get sick.

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!!!!
That is no fun! Believe me... I understand. We had a leak in the kitchen that led to one thing after another and ended with quite the project last weekend.

I figured the price was going to mean maybe more host resorts... but nope. I really can't imagine why they raised it so much. I do plan to register for it...but hope to see a little discount at the phm expo.

Ok, the PHM insomnia had officially set in for me. Woke up with my head spinning full of crap. OMG, why do the hormones have to kick in now? 😁

There were cover photos that came out a while ago-- I want to say around the time the medal was revealed. I have that as my cover photo. But, I haven't seen any new one's since then.

I think that's the one I have...it shows the medal, race date and 'in training'....or was there another one? Maybe the one folks are talking about on whatever group it is, is one that someone else made?

Yes, it's the 'in training' one. I'm sure someone tech savvy and creative has made their own, but I haven't seen them.

the only thing they have release was the orginal cover photo (in training) and its not on run disney...it was on the lady's footlocker page they had set up with the the contest. and now because the contest is over, you cant get to the page to download it anymore..

really not feeling the love from rundisney

Yup. I paid a total of $96 and change last year. It seems like a HUGE increase, but so was the Everest Challenge. runDisney's gunning for every cent they think they can get. And yet... I'm registered for a TOT repeat. I did get $10 off with a DVC member discount, at least.

Because they can! I'm betting it'll sell out, no problem...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Many going out to all who are facing challenges and loss. I'm so sorry!

Race Weather Watch continues, with the forecast going from 60s and rainy yesterday on Accuweather, to 40s and dry today. Welcome to winter in Florida! Who knows what we'll get at this point.

Had my first PHM dream last night, too. Apparently we never even made it to the race because we were driving all around WDW and couldn't find Epcot at all! Saw MK, DHS, and AK with no problem, but never found an exit for Epcot.

Only three more runs for the training plan I put together
Looks like I will be able to get my 8 miler in outside Friday and then Monday a 5-6 pace run and Wed. a 3-4 pace run.

But, the last part of my outfit, the Hat, I have put off. I'm giving round 1 and 3 to the hat and I won round 2. Round 4 will be this afternoon. Wish me luck. If it rains for the race, I don't think the hat will work,so I will throw together a quick hairbow.
