I think not getting a BeeCharm was my largest regret last year, getting some sparkle for sure this year.

Thanks! I haven't ventured into the Twitter-verse yet. The only reason I ever got on FB was to find out what the big secret was when they announced the Tinker Bell half marathon...but I'm still on it

It won't clash! Purple and lime is a great color combo! In fact, my shirt for Tink has a black minnie sillohette, lime green glitter wings and a purple glitter tiara. I love it!

Wow! Talk about a resolution that's easy to fix for $15. Much better than "My greatest regret is not doing the IronMan" Not wanting to take on a chunk of 2013 regret, I think I'm going to get the Powered by Fairy Dust one.

Speaking of fairy dust, I uploaded a pic of my youngest daughter's shirt for the 400m that says "I'm Fairy Fast" on the front and "Eat My Dust" if anyone wants to check that out: http://www.crowdrise.com/shotlife/fu...er/cindylevin/

I thought you ladies would appreciate this poster from a girl empowering website. We can relate to the "Dance like a girl, Think like a girl, Lead like a girl" image of the woman in a tutu and running clothes!

Wow IRONman, you will get it done. I almost chickened out of W&D but got stubborn and got it done, that would have been a big regret.

Yep, exactly how I felt getting them on the first time! FYI, I've found they come off really easy in the shower - it was too much effort to get them off before my ice bath so I just left them on to soak, then turned on the shower and they rolled right down.

Right?! I just told my coworker that I'm as excited for our post-race group 'Ohana dinner as I am to finish the race. She laughed... I wasn't joking.

I'm sorry! I was kidding, but that didn't come out in the text! That's not at all my regret. I will not be doing that!!! I was just saying that I like how your biggest regret is so fixable in the new year. 2012 must have been a pretty great year for you

Sorry for the miscommunication

I'm going to end up looking like the lady coming out of the bathroom with her dress tucked into her stockings. Also, why am I in denial about being able to wear a tutu when I have way to much junk in my trunk? I keep thinking "oh well, this one's made this way so it'll work and look better than the other ones." no. no it won't. I know how picky I am, but I seem to forget that when fluffy girly things are in front of me! It makes me wish I was walking the 5k or something to at least get some use out of it because it was on the expensive side for sure. So, I've just put in an order to "old faithful", a.k.a. Team Sparkle, which is what I should have just done to begin with. I may change my mind between now and then and find a way to deal with it, but I want to have what I already know works for sure just in case.

I say if you LOVE your tutu then wear it. Be your beautiful princess self! I'm sure you could find a way to make it not ride up.

I have too much junk everywhere and my blue Belle outfit right now makes me look like a two-ton elephant. I'm going to rework it some, but I'm thinking of scraping it altogether and doing like you and getting another Team Sparkle skirt and just coordinating my outfit with my pretty grey/pink sneakers.

I love those. I saw a woman at a race last year who had a pink Mickey head charm on her shoelaces that said 13.1. I want to try to find that or something similar. It's the one purchase I really want, so thanks for the heads up on who sells them.

My friend and I were just talking about this last night. I said the food we eat at Disney the days before the race is for fuel and the food we stuff ourselves with afterwards is to replenish. And we have to eat a lot of it, because Disney's food is calorie-free, right?

LOVE Bee Charms! I saw them at the expo at DL half last year - the people were soo nice. I didn't pick up any because I had to leave fast. I'm excited that they have a website, I didn't know! Now I'm definitely going to get my shoe bling on Thanks for posting it!

I was going to try to work on it tonight maybe. I need to dig out some safety pins and try everything on together. the fuel belt actually kind of helps to hold everyting down, so it might work. I hate to have to pin something that much though because it makes going to the restroom so difficult when you can't just take the skirt off quickly. I've yet to have to stop during a run to use the restroom, but my last few long runs of 8-10 miles I really needed to go, which was unusual! So, now I'm a little worried about that. Ugh, too much to think about! I may revisit the discussions about at what mile we pass REAL restrooms...that might be a little easier to do with a bulky skirt on if I need to go.

I think we've created a new verb.

So I'm looking at the Bee Cause sneaker charms and thinking how my little girls will be jealous if I get one and they don't. But that's like $45 for us all to get them. Maybe I'll just get one "powered by pixie dust" heart and we'll make a big deal of handing it off to the next person to race...the 5K, the 400m, and the 13.1 Like Dumbo's magic feather?
