I LOVE my sparkle skirts! I'm actually bringing another one just to wear at the parks. So comfy and lots of pocket space. I'm hoping to get another one at the expo as well.

Lol, I often wonder what kind of a fortune I could have amassed with the $$ I've spent on hair products to battle the humidity. I am a complete junkie in that regard. Glad I decided against getting a haircut before we leave because I'm thinking ponytail is going to be my go-to look next week

We (DD and I) will be attending. Fortunately I am suffering from jet lag from a long trip home Friday so I just happened to wake at 2:45am. After finding the post on the internet i gave my daughter a very early wake up call! Look forward to meeting some of you there.

The meet ups are posted on the Disney Parks Blog. I would suggest you follow the blog a week or so before your next runDisney race.

Love the sock Improvise!

The airline will not move my flight (yet) as they are not calling this a weather event (yet)

The same thing happened last year, they canceled my flight and I took me 8 hours to find a new way to Orlando
Best of luck on the flights!

Everyone DRINK YOUR BEVERAGES NOW and get your daily potassium. I am having 2 coconut waters a day, a banana daily and pickle juice! The humidity can really zap you so slow down your pace a bit to compensate esp when the sun is up. wishing it wasn't so hot, but what can you do?

Would any one of you Princesses want an Ariel-inspired wrap skirt?

Here's a pic of me wearing it before last October's Halloween race (its only use):



I ended up making a tutu to wear at the Princess Half instead, but don't want to just throw this one away if someone could use it (or wants to give it to a daughter, etc). I can bring it down this weekend and leave it for pick-up at CSR on Saturday.

Let me know by private message.

Is it really supposed to be humid on race day? I think 65 is perfect...it's way better than running in the cold and rain back in jan 2010 for the half, lol.

As long as it isn't nasty humid, I think we will all be okay.

It's saying 20 percent chance of rain for Sunday, so I would say some humidity but not extremely bad.

I am actually more worried about Thursday when I fly out right now. We're supposed to get snow starting tomorrow and continuing into Thursday. And after last week's lovely incident of driving to school and back I don't trust Denver to actually salt the roads this time (skidded twice for a short distance before I got full control back, had the anti-lock breaks kick in four times because some idiot decided that in spite of the fact it had been snowing since 10 am and it was now almost 6, not to send out the trucks). And its supposed to snow on Sunday too, lovely. The weather doesn't appear to be too bad (only an inch expected tomorrow) but still.
