Ouch! I would not run today either.

Um...So SEAN ASTIN TWEETED WITH ME! It was very short, but I asked if they would be making him start in Corral C with the other Disney Dudes. He thinks they probably will. I feel lucky to be in corral C for that reason and also to be able hang with the guys rocking all their costumes like HockeyDan (not sure I've remembered that name right)

Other much more boring, mundane news...Last long run done yesterday. Twelve on a treadmill!! Watched The Little Mermaid and Cinderella for motivation. Nothing like being chased by the Sea Witch to get you moving.

Thank you! It's great when folks use Charity Miles to walk their kids to school for 1/2 mile, but it's long distance runners like us who can rack up a lot of support super quick!

Next week I'm suppose to do two short runs.
So should I squeeze in a long run next week when I feel better, or should I just forget about the two runs this weekend and stick to the plan? I have already done two longer runs the last two weekends (10 and 11 miles)
I'm just so nervous about loosing my form.
Taper, taper, taper! You've done all the work. You are ready. You'll very likely to harm yourself with running before you are well. If it makes you feel better, I caught a cold a week before my first full marathon. I stopped running completely and I was fine. I think I really do run faster when your body has had a nice taper and this is just the thing to force you to do it.

I keep telling DH I have to be really careful now because this is exactly the time when I don't want to have a silly accident. It almost happened when I slid off the back of the treadmill into a dollhouse (Who put that there!!???!!) Thank you for the reminder that we are all abundantly human!

Based on past experience, does the official Disney meet up usually happen on the Friday morning or the Saturday morning?

I'm ready-and-willing to cyberstalk social media for the entry form tomorrow for my chance to participate, but only if the meet up is planned for Saturday (our flight doesn't get in until late Friday).

There's a separate numbering system for team entries:

Elite 30001 - 30006 < 1:30
A 30007 - 30355 < 2:15
B 30356 - 30700 < 2:30
C 30701 - 31212 < 2:45
D 31213 - 31791 < 2:50
E 31792 - 32380 < 3:00
F 32381 - 33036 3:00
G 33037 - 33603 < 3:25
H 33604 - 34300

Last year I was able to set up where my DH would get a text of where I am at the race. Can you do that again this year and how?

Thanks for your help!

Oh no, Cripey! Glad your basically okay, but I hope your back feels better soon!!

RE: the Rock N Roll series question, I did the New York/Brooklyn 10K this year (not sure why it's not a half), and I LOVED it. Very organized and they had tons of great sponsors and swag. The medal was very cute and I love the shirt - it my favorite race shirt actually (hopefully to be replaced by the Princess soon). I'm already signed up for next year and hope to try out a few others in the fall. Would've loved to do St. Pete but I was nervous with it being so close to this race.

Good luck to anyone getting in runs today! I really messed up my hip with my last long run, so I'm KT taped up and resting - hoping it'll feel better by next weekend.

Well, here are our race day outfits...I'm going to just try posting links rather than the actual pics because it's faster than trying to resize them in photo bucket!

Here's the front of my Belle-inspired look. Here's the back. A closeup of the accessories (bondi band, earrings, ponytail holder and a Beast pin for my water belt on the back). And here is the front of BF's shirt, and the back!
Be sure to say hi if you recognize us and let me know if these links don't work
