Hey All-- I just noticed that they pushed back the TOT for next year one week, until Oct 5. It's no longer the first weekend of F&W.

Congrats to all the Tink finishers! It looks like the weather was perfect for the race.

For those of you worried about the weather at DL vs WDW in the fall-- DL is in the desert, so it gets very cool overnight, even in Aug/Sept. For last year's DL 1/2, even though it was warm during the day (80/90), the race was 60/70 and very dry-- nothing like the TOT! Of course, the longer you are out on the course, the hotter it gets, but the race starts before 6AM, so even by 9AM it's not so bad.

I think I need to go get new shoes (sigh). I've been running in Brooks Adrenalines (12). I see they've come out with a new model (but 12s are still for sale), so I'm going to go to the running store and try a few on. I may end up back in the Brooks, as they have served me well. However, I can tell as soon as they are too old, because my hip starts to hurt when I run longer distances. (I accidentally ran the DL 1/2 in my old pair, which was a disaster!)

[How was your 7 miler? My first goal is finish and not get swept too!

My 7 miler was great! I ran almost the entire 7 miles too! I ran straight to mile 6, then walked for 1 min, ran to 6.6, walked for 30 seconds. Walking was obviously mental and not really needed. I ran it with a pace of 12:16!/QUOTE]

That is awesome! Good for you!

I did my 7 miles yesterday morning. I wish I could say I ran for 6 straight miles, but I didn't. I take frequent walk breaks -- particularly up hills as I live in a hilly area. My pace was 13:10 -- almost a minute slower than you. But still fast enough to meet my goal of not getting swept.

For those having shin splints, I've had them before. They are super painful, so I sympathize. For me, the inserts in the shoes did not work. I ended up getting a really spongy shoe. But what I think helped the most was learning to take smaller steps and not stride so big. You might want to try that. Good luck.

And Cripey, it is 7:00 a.m. California time right now, thinking of you! I'm sure you're rocking it.
Great job on your run! I actually drove to a super flat area to run. Like flatter than FL hills. It was great. I'm struggling with shin splints so I didn't want to deal with hills when I had barely run at all in 2 weeks.

Newbie, it will be a blast. The final weeks of training can be tough as the body gets a bit worn and the weather a bit cold. Keep with and the payoff is well worth it.
Omg. 5 weeks is crazy!!

Congrats on finishing. Hopefully you can rest up and recover and get a long run or two in before the PHM!

It was a whopping 0 degrees when I went out to run. I only did a mile. Mostly, I just wanted to test out my new toy: Garmin Forerunner 110 with heart rate monitor. Early birthday present. Thanks DH!

Congrats on the Tink!

It always takes my Podiatrist a few weeks. Plus you'll want some time to train in them if you're planning on using them so running. I'd day not to count on them for the Princess. You can however get non-custom insoles. Super feet is a good brand, a brooks makes some too. You can get them at your local running store or online.

Have you done the Flying Pig?

Congrats on becoming a Grandma!!!
I'm thinking about the pig. A lot depends on the new grand baby. When my daughter was pregnant before she delivered three months early. If this one comes on time and has no problems, I will probably do the Flying Pig.

I ran a couple of miles last Tuesday and had a 6 mile run on Friday and 7 miles of speed drills today. LR will be 8 miles later this week and then 10, 12, 8.
I took it easy for the full so I could gear up for the half. Had a great time too!

I couldn't remember either so I just called them a few weeks ago and they looked me up.

Great places for victory drinks and dinner! Please post back about the Carthay Circle dinner...it's on my list for the DDD. Hope your PF gets better - no fun running in pain.

3 spots left ladies!

It leaves from Y&BC at 8 PM, and you don't need park tickets. I've done the cruise several times, so if you have any questions, just ask.

Great job Tinkerbell ladies!!!!!

I only did 3.1 yesterday. I planned on 12 but was just feeling too blah to hamster wheel it that long. I was going to just do 5-6 but then my 5 year old asked if he could come with me and run. Never one to say no to one of my kids wanting to run, I brought him and just did 3.1. At least I was out there, I guess. I have been making my own training plan as I go and really, I just want to get in 12 once between now and a couple of weeks before the PHM. So I'll do it next Sunday. I do my 3.1 runs twice a week and then save Sunday for the long one. I just wish it weren't 9* here right now. Ugh!!

I did 6 on Saturday it was not as cold but the wind was nasty. I am planning on 11 on Wednesday. I hope it warms up.

How did your 5 year old do on the 3.1? My 8 year old and I do a 5K the Saturday before Easter, we have a great time and my DD love the chocolate you get when your done. But I thought my 5 year old was too young so I did not sign her up.

DS5 ran one mile straight through (8 laps) and then he did his own version of interval training. I would run 3-4 laps and then he'd run one with me for the rest of it. He was so cute standing by the lockers cheering as I'd come around the bend and hold up his fingers for how many laps. This nice older man gave him a peppermint and you'd think it was a million dollars for how excited he was.

DS7 did a 5K turkey trot this past November and they both do the 1 mile runs at school. I have both of them signed up for the kids one mile and DS3 is doing the dash (I think it's 100m for his age group but might be 200m). I am hoping to sign all 3 of them up for the Neverland 5K next year when I run the Tink but I also try to keep it fun so I only take them when they ask to go. Or I'll say "Mommy's going on a fun run. Who wants to come with?" In the summer, I get a lot of takers. In the winter, not so much. But they know if we go to the track and they are good, I'll let them stop in the jump room before we leave, so that's some motivation.
