What exactly did you sign up for from Clif? I see something you download or watch on iTunes and then a link to register for the Pace Team... is that what you registered for? (It sounds like it is to join a run club or training for one of the specific marathons listed.) It'd be awesome to get some free Clif stuff as well as the cute box, but I can't figure out what to sign up for. TIA!

As JCH said, never trust a FL forecast this far in advance! It is still the rainy season, but constant rain that late at night is pretty rare. But I do a lot of rain running down here, so IF it's rainy, here's what I'll be doing...
~iPhone gets wrapped in a double layer of cling wrap, then tucked into a snack-size ziploc before insertion into armband
~clothing stays the same, rain or shine: wicking, wicking, wicking fabrics that tend not to get weighed down with water weight
~anything in my waist pack that can be compromised by wetness goes into a small ziploc (Nuun tablets, car key fob, Tylenol, etc.)
~hat with a brim or visor is a MUST to keep rain out of eyes
~Bodyglide - lots of it. Because when the rain stops and skin's still damp, but no longer slick, it hurts. Trust V.

As far as humidity goes, beware of dehydration and overheating; sweat isn't as effective when it's too humid for it to evaporate. Slow down the pace and be sure to pre-hydrate the 48 hours before race day.


I can't believe how much nicer our mornings and evenings have felt the past week or so!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Outfit is together. Playlist is complete. (The full playlist is in my blog, if anyone's interested.) 3 more short training runs to go. I'll pack this weekend. 9 days!!!
Thanks all for the weather info, i guess you can never trust the weather report.We are in Disney from Sept 26th - Oct 4th forecast is rain everyday which here in B.C. means something completely different (all Day).

Hoping for sunshine !!
See you @ the finish line...

yes, the race pace team is what I signed up for. I wasn't sure what I was signing up for. I thought it sounded like I would be involved in something.. but I don't know.... Maybe I missed something..

It was the pace thing I signed up for as well. However the TOT wasn't listed as one of the races, odd since that's where the link came from. So I chose the Disneyland Half because that was the only runDisney event listed. The gist I got was that Clif provides pacers for certain races. I didn't get the impression that it applied to me but I signed up anyway. I figured they wouldn't have included the link if we weren't supposed to take advantage of it. Hoping I get the cool lunch box too!

Oh, and now it appears as though I'm getting the crud. I'm NEVER sick! No fever though. Took some mucinex and nasal spray and calling it a day. Hoping it's not much. I'm just under the 16 mm mark as it is. The crud might just do me in. I can't bear the thought of that.

Food?

Where are you eating lunch and dinner on race day? In training we had a heavy lunch (Italian, Stirfry, carb heavy choices) followed by a light dinner around 7. I'm starting to freak out that there aren't any light dinners to be had in Disney and all the lunches look really greasy. We'll be at the YC but could travel for lunch. I don't know how dinner will work if we need to be on the bus to the race by 8:30. Help!

Exactly! Down here, "40% chance of scattered thunderstorms" means a brief thunderstorm may or may not cross your path at some point of the day. Generally speaking, it's not an all-day event unless the forecast is upward of 90% chance.

You might try the Marketplace in the Beach Club - they have sandwiches and soups, but I'm pretty sure they have breakfast-type things (bagels, muffins, etc.) available all day, too. If not, you could always pick something up early and eat it later in-room.

HEADS-UP runners and vacationers... pollen counts are on the rise down here in FL. If you're susceptible to fall pollen allergies (main offenders right now are ragweed and grasses), be sure to take along whatever brings you relief! Ragweed is a bad, bad trigger for me; I actually had to use my albuterol inhaler to do Pilates last night. That's not even an aerobic activity!

RE: Medal Engraving

What is or has been the charge and what do you engrave on it?

I'm getting nervous and excited both! My feet have been bothering me so I am adding in more stretching and exercises. This trip me do me in for awhile, but I've come too far to give up. I am still trying to make stuff for the girls for the trip, my poor costume is at the bottom of the list. I figure worse case, I can just run as Rapunzel again. I did find some light up shoelaces, which I think I have rigged in a way with the elastic laces that I can wear them if I do go with a costume. I will be testing them tomorrow morning, of course, without them being lite. I can just see my fellow runners laughing as I jog by.

I broke down and went to doc. I have an ear infection so antibiotics. Yay! However she said I can still train through it and I'll be perfect in time for the race. Hope so!
