Oh, girl - you missed the warmth by a few days! I teach preschool in Atl and we couldn't even take the kids outside today because of the wind chill!

You might try getting fitted again either at another store or by a different person in the same store just to see if they suggest anything different to you. My BF has had 2 completely different types of shoes suggested for him at 2 different stores in our area before. It's kind of frustrating!

As to how to know which shoes are which, most brand websites spell this out. Sometimes you really have to search, though.
I just got put in a pair of Asics that will be going back. I was put in the Trainer 17s. They felt fine in the store and during a brief jog down the sidewalk in front of the store. When I tried to do out for a run in them, OMG, so much pain - Achillles tendon, ankles, and knees were all killing me within 1 mile. Since they only complaint about my old shoes was a blistering issue that changing my lacing fixed, I'm switching back to my old shoes. The guy at the store was appalled that I was training in racing flats, but I am choosing to go back to pain free running.

So maybe I'll get back out soon.
It is freezeing here in the windy city that is for sure.
I am glad you had no pain on your test mile

Kinda bummed that I have yet another bad cold..the kind where you lay on the couch and watch trashy tv like honey boo boo & the kardashians. Was hoping to do the Hero Half marathon this Sunday in San Antonio but when I called running coach to reschedule my training for tomorrow he was like " uhhhh nooooo half marathon on Sunday. Let your body & immune system get better
& you don't want want to catch something else and be out two weeks. ". Sooooo...no training this week until I feel better. Coach assured me that missing five days of training would not push me back. DH and I have already done a 10 mi run so we are okay for our goal of completing our first half. Still bummed...just not the gal who sits on the couch and watches tv !
Hi from Austin! Sorry to hear you're under the weather. I got something over the weekend, lost my voice and missed my run today. Boo. Hope you feel better soon!

Sweepers!

Any information on when the sweepers sweep (which miles?) or are they always on the prowl?

Family Fun Run

We are running the half on Sunday and have decided to do the 5K for fun. We are just walking it and taking in the views.

I know the race starts at 6:30, and this is a much smaller race than the half, so are there corals? Also, what time should we get on the bus? (We are at the WL.)

Thanks for your help. Hope everyone is staying warm (or cool) and healthy.

I am! I had -2.7 this morning. I can't believe they still had school. I like reading everyone's posts about buying shoes. It is a difficult thing for me too. I like the Asics Gel kayano17. My foot doctor gave me a white arch support that also goes under my heel.

I ran in them for a year and had less foot pain, but... developed a suspicious bone spur? under my third toe, in the pad, on one foot. No injuries but noticed after the half marathon I had pain in my hips.

I wish there was better technology out there. I am going to try Hanson's running store in Lake Orion, MI. They help train Desiree Davilla so maybe I'll have better luck with them.

UGH, I'm in Jersey. I managed to get 3 miles in today...it was AWFUL. So freakin' cold!

Although, I will say that my pace was a bit faster that usual -- I thought maybe if I ran as fan as I could, my body would stay warmer...plus I wanted to get back inside ASAP!

I'm not sure, but read about someone getting picked up because she was too slow and hung out at the bathroom too much.

I was scared too and made sure I ran 10, 11, 12 and 13 miles at home. I was sure I could make it then.

Just make sure you go 13.2 miles in at least 3 1/2 hours. I did mine in 2:40 and there were tons of people behind me. Take some Tylenol or something with you to help keep you going.

Hello all! Add me to the list. I'll be running the Princess solo, though DH is going to do the 5K and the kids are doing the kids races, too. This will be our first Disney race, so we're very excited.

Not sure of all the sweep points for the half, but I walked with the balloon ladies from mile 16 on at the full. They would announce where the next sweep point was, and as we got closer, how long we had to get there. They sweep by pulling a bus across the road, so they can't sweep in the parks. For the full, the last three points were at around 16, 21, and 23.5. Once we passed the last point, they said we could take as long as we wanted, as long as we kept moving. I think I took over 45 minutes for the last 2 miles! They definitely give you plenty of warning, they don't just show up and say " you're done".
