Oh, and that was after my run so please be gentle, I know I look like a mess! LOL!
LOVE!! And I love your Scoop Neck Tank! They are my fave! Awesome tutu!

Yeh, the eagle was definitely helping Pocahontas' feet to fly when I went a few days ago in the 30's. At least that was only my 5k outfit. You picked a great day to test the long run costume!

You must have run later in the day. I got an 8 mile in while it was still 52F up here on the north shore. BUT I unintentionally took a wrong trail for my and it spit me out somewhere MUCH farther from home than I meant to be. i thought I was way to far away to get home in time to get my kids to their saturday activity so I started running as fast as I could on the back half of a leisurely walk/run. I got there in time and did it in 11:50 average pace.

I had to wait for my DH to get home so he could stay with the boys while I went out. I'll do my "long run" tomorrow but couldn't pass up a chance to test out my wings. I thought it was going to be closer to 50, but my phone widget said 41. Still beats 20!!

Sometimes it's fun to accidentally find a new trail, but not so fun when you have someplace to be. Very nice pace though!!!!!! Well done!!!!

What's funny is that one of my FB friends posted that she saw someone out running in a Minnie Mouse costume and someone else responded that she saw someone out in a costume today too. Everyone must have the same idea.

3 of my friends are doing the Goofy this weekend so I was stalking their times and the first place finisher today had a 4:59 pace. I can't imagine doing ONE mile in 5 minutes much less 13.1 of them. I wonder how the human body manages to move that fast, honestly.

Is the course hilly? I know inside the parks isn't..but the other spots I'm worried about. I mostly run on bike paths and treadmill so hills are not my thing. I just did a 5K where the first mile was completely uphill and I thought I was going to die.

For distance, I've gotten up to 11/12 miles. I hope to do a couple of 14 mile runs before the race but they will be treadmill runs because I'm in NE. I should be good right? my pace is typically around 12:00

Last question...We are combining this trip with the kids school vacation..so it means I'll be walking all over the parks BEFORE the race weekend. I typically do Disney in flipflops but my legs are tired by the end of the trip. I don't really want to use my running shoes all week...what do you all recommend for park shoes. I'm thinking of trying out the ABEO sandals.. Does anyone have any experience with these? .
I did the Disneyland 1/2 after a week of family vacation and it worked out fine. I alternated an older pair of running shoes and flip-flops. Saved my race day shoes for race day. Was careful what I ate on Friday and Saturday... but other than that just enjoyed the parks. Sounds like you are well prepared!

Awesome run! Glad your costume test drive went well.

Totally not expecting that. DH's final weeks of training are shaping up nicely! I'm very proud of him. I am feeling a little crappy about the race since I haven't run in over a week, and I feel so queasy and gross. Hoping to snap out of it this week and get some miles in.
Hope you feel better soon!

Um - 4:59 overall for 13 miles? That's insane. I mean, I get that there are people who can do that for a mile or so. 13 miles? I just don't even know if I would WANT to do that!

Awesome run today. My previous *****ing about the cold has paid off and the running goddesses have favored me with a 70 degree day and a nice breeze. It reminded me that I actually DO like distance running. Loaded up the ipod with a bunch of tunes I haven't listened to in ages and had a good 'ol time. Even went 1/2 mile further than I planned because I overshot my distance from the car and didn't want to just walk the whole way back. Ended up doing 7.5 right around an 11:00 overall pace. I am not a cold weather runner; this girl likes to sweat!

Here's how i look at it: would I WANT to run that fast? heck yes! Do I have the genetics and the talent at this point...no way. Even if I could, do I want to put in the work to get that fast? yeah....no thanks. I know what 55 miles/week with two speedwork days, a midweek medium long run, and regular long run feels like to me (hell, in case you were wondering)...and thats a **joke** compared to what is required to run at those speeds.

Great job on your run today! Sounds like you really got to enjoy the sunshine

Yup 4:59 was his avg pace for the whole thing. Amazing! Most of the top finishers were 5-6 min pace. I can't even fathom. But if someone was going to wave a wand and make me that fast, I wouldn't say no!

Isn't it bananas? It's basically running as fast as you possibly can, without stopping, for 13.1 miles straight. Amazeballs!

Many, many Congrats to all of today long runners, especially those who hit record distances!!

I made my own distance record today: 10.1 miles in 2 hours and 10 minutes! I even improved my pacing for long runs: from 13 minute/mile average to 12:50. It's not much but it surprised me.

Ive been looking for new routes for my long runs ( to keep entertained) and made it to Brooklyn's version of Central Park, Prospect Park. There were tons of runners out which was inspiring. Unfortunately, none in Princess gear; but there was an old man running almost barefoot (He had like minimal sandals on -Just an ankle strap and a piece around his toe). He got a lot of looks but, man, what a champ!!

Gotta start working on my costume soon if I want to try it out! Much kudos to all you ladies that are already prepped and tested!

Awesome! Love PP! It sounds like the old dude was wearing a version of huaraches. The Mexican/Indigenous sandals worn by the Tarahumara and other tribes spoken to in Born to Run. Super cool!

Thanks all for your help. Glad to hear the race is not Hilly... and that my training has prepared me. I'm going do to my first 14 miler tomorrow AM, just to prove to myself I can do that distance.

I tried on those Abeo sandals in the mall today and they were U..G..L..Y even my husband (who never notices shoes) said so. I think I'll stick to my running shoes, and the Disney buses... We always cut thru Epcot to get to the monorail for Magic Kingdom or walk over to Hollywood studios.. This trip its all about preserving the feet.

Can anyone who has ITband syndrome try to explain what it feels like? Its what the dr and PT diagnosed me with, but I'm just not sure I agree with it. I can foam roll my ITband all day and don't find a single spot that hurts (and I've heard that foam rolling the ITband hurts!). They show me stretches that should be slightly painful, and they're not. Yet after the half today, my knee once again is killing me. I've been icing off and on all day but still have a heavy limp. My pain is on the outside of the knee (which is why it leads to the ITband thought) but it feels like its the actual bone to me. It doesn't hurt above or below the side of the knee, but the bone right where it bends. I'm so frustrated that nothing in PT worked. And I have an other 5k on Saturday.

I was wondering if we have to eat the race and race retreat costs or can I sell them to another hopeful runner?

I didn't know where to look and I thought that someone may know here.

Thanks!

( and I completed 9 miles in 1.45 this weekend!!!)

Hello Princesses! I ran 10 miles today! Yay! It did not feel as rough as my first long run a few weeks ago. My running partner said that she felt less sore even though we are running a whole lot farther. I was degrading this run before we started but was so so glad at the end. A little TMI but I also did not get any sport bra chaffing on my back but had to run with bandages under the ****s! Ha! What we do for this run! I hope all of your runs are going well! The weather here is sunny in Spain so it was perfect! Have a great week princesses!
