Hi everyone!

I am officially registered for the race. There will be 6 of us running to celebrate our 40th birthday. We still need hotel and airfare, but that's for another post.

I've been running for just about a year, and have a few 5Ks under my belt. The PHM will be my first distance race. I keep reading about jellybeans, and compression things..clearly things I have no idea about. Is there anything I NEED...besides a good pair of sneakers and a sports bra to comfortably finish the race?

Thanks!

I want to come to
I'll be running alone, so if anyone wants to meet up for some breakfast at race retreat, I'm in. I'm a bit nervous that I'll be all alone before the race

Thanks - I was genuinely SHOCKED that I was that slow. One mile split in the middle was over 18:00! I've never walked slower than a 16:00 in training and I felt much faster than my norm in the race, but apparently not.

Not really, so far as genuine need, though I might add wicking clothes as a need.

Good to know - that's exactly what I'm planning.

Honestly, I think the first 3 miles are the hardest of any run...so you've already got the toughest in your pocket, in my opinion!

I agree with Princess V that a few pieces of tech fabrics would be a nice addition. Target has a good line at a really nice price point. The other thing that I really love is a good pair of running socks. I run in Experias. Not cheap, but super worth it, at least for my feet.

Great !!! So far there is just a couple of us that want to meet up at the retreat. I think it's a great idea and will be more fun then eating alone. I really want to have fun at the race retreat !!!

I should have chimed in on this thread a while ago but I try to stay busy with one thing at a time. I just did the TOT last weekend and am getting ready to sign up for the Princess half Although after last weekend I am not feeling like doing any running for a while, it was brutal.

Are we all 40?? I'm feeling more and more on this thread at home everytime I read that

I would put Bodyglide and sunscreen on my must have list...even 20 yr old princesses chafe. I can only imagine what this will be like for me at 40! It helps your clothes not cut into you with the repeated rubbing. Some people use vaseline, but bodyglide lasts longer.

I'd like to think Princesses are "age less" They don't get older just more royal.

50 checking in here. I'll be running with my 20 year old daughter. Have two halfs, one 10 miler, and a few 10k's under my belt. Just started running 1 1/2 years ago - and loving it.

And a big YES to the Bodyglide. When I got sunburned this past trip for the Tower of Terror race, Bodyglide saved the day as I used it against the parts of my shirt and running bra that was touching the sunburn. Never felt anything after that.
