If all goes well...I will be walking and my dear husband and three children will cheer me on.

Right now, I don't know. Our house still has not sold...the house we're building in another state will be move-in ready December 28...budget is getting so tight because we're funding this relocation and have maxed out so much of our budget paying for my husband to stay in hotels while he works out of state. I'm a faith filled person but have no idea what God's timing is. I injured my back 4 weeks ago and am just this week am now able to sit and type this message. I've got 40 pounds more to go to be at goal...and I'm just a basket of nerves.

If I can't go....anyway I can give my registration to a deserving walker?

Thanks....in a slump.

10-13-2004, 10:56 AM

Kristi1357, Thanks for the offer of a cheer or few. I know that we will be having some sort of color/shirt thing going, just not sure what yet.

Please stay tuned as I/we can use all the encouragement that can be found.

I was in the full marathon, and I actually just switched to the half marathon. I have been sick on and off for the last month, nothing serious, but it did affect my training, so I will not be ready for the marathon in January.

I felt guilty about it, like I was letting my friends and family down, but after discussions with GP, and massage therapists they thought I would be risking injury if I insisted on pushing myself to the 26.2 miles.

So I am going with the 13.1 half marathon.

This week I am at 6 miles, so I think I will be fine with the half marathon come January.

My DH will be cheering me on, at least I hope he will.

Good for you Rachel for doing the half! We're glad your joining us!

10-17-2004, 07:56 PM
Me too! Jackie and friend PixieMagic (Trish) at least as of this moment.

Just got back from WDW and found this thread. Trish completed the 10K this past Sunday in the time allotted (with a few minutes to spare)!!!! That's a smidge better than a 14 min mile. I did 5K of the race and did a personal best on time for the first two miles (3 mins per mile faster than two weeks before) and my normal pace for the last mile.

I did find walking through the parks a little distracting......tended to look around instead of FOCUSING on my performance. So I know that's something I'll have to be careful of next January! Once we all cleared MGM (race started at Epcot then thru MGM) the 'sweeper' people really didn't care about the walkers keeping up the pace....they were most interested in getting the parks cleared on time and once we were all out on the street, they didn't care.

I will also be walking the half marathon.

Me Angee (1)
My inlaws and family cheering 5

I'll be walking in the half (if I can get my act together and get focused). My family will be flying in later in the week, so I won't have any cheerleaders with me.

10-20-2004, 10:57 PM
I'll be there. Just me. And I would really, really, really, really like to be able to listen to a book on tape while walking, but apparently that's not allowed. :(

I will be walking along with my good friend Cindy and her son Joe.


10-25-2004, 02:15 PM
DH (John) and I (Denise) will be doing the half marathon,we have 3 friends that will be doing the full marathon and my 2 DDs will hopefully awaken to cheer us on.:earsboy: :earsgirl: :earsgirl: :earsgirl:

10-25-2004, 05:35 PM
I plan on running the 1/2 with a friend. We have a third friend who will most likely be walking it. Keep up with the great job you all are doing training! It sounds so simple to "walk" a race, but I am shocked at how quick a 15 minute/mile pace is! To keep it up for 13 miles is great!!!

Hope training goes well for all of us and we have a fun weekend!:bounce:

Walking: Jennifer (me)

Cheering: Ann (Mom)
Abigail (DD)
