Hahaha yes! This past Feb it was perfect (for me). I'm from NY, LI area and I trained outside in 20-45 degree weather for all runs. Leaving the hotel for the buses at 3:45 am it was 50 degrees. I had my throwaway old navy thermal over my race gear (long compression tights, two tight wicking racerbacks) and I was perfect. The ladies walking to the bus with me were shivering! They were Floridians. At the start I tossed my thermal and was toasty by mile 1. I get very hot easily. Which may be why i was so sick during the ToT. The weather stayed about 60 i believe. There was a tiny drizzle really early at times but i personally didnt feel it.

Yayyy anoter ToTer over here!!! SOOOO excited!!!!

February in Florida can be cold (ok, Florida cold) or rainy or perfect, but it is very rarely hot. Definitely not early October hot and humid.

Its race day for me!

Hoping to use this 10km as my proof of time but its going to be a rough race. Its a night race (cool, eh?) but we're supposed to get more rain tonight then in the last 6 months combined. Its just constant storm systems moving through today.

Yikes! Going to be a cold, wet, windy run along the water.....wish me luck!

I've still got alot of life left in one of my 13's, but I'm one that normally has at least 2 pair of shoes for training...one for short runs and another for long runs...so I either need to stock up on as many 13's as I can still find in my size or start searching for another pair that I like. Thought I had found a match in the Brooks Pure Cadence...but the longer the run, the more they didn't agree with my feet...the ToT 10-miler was the last straw in those unfortunately. I hope they end up working out for you!
I agree that the Ascics Cumulus have changed in the latest version! I had to try to find more of the 13's in my size, and they are doing much better than the 14's. I feel like the heel is just a tad too high, and they seem to be a bit roomier than the 13's. I bought two more pair of the 13's so they will get me thru the next two half marathons...and then I'll have to find a new style.

The heel was the first thing I hated about them (that doesn't make sense since I bought them but...). Being a 5Finger girl, I knew I'd have to get used to more of a bulky heavy shoe but when I put these on, the huge heel turned me off immediately and I almost took them right off. But I stood up and decided o give them a chance. But I did not like that heel business!!

I read that they changed the heel to toe drop too which I'm sure just takes some getting used to, but for me the biggest difference I noticed was the cushion...seems like that just aren't nearly as cushiony, which was the main selling point of the Cumulus in the first place. Oh well, I'll probably try to find some more 13's too...hopefully a lot of people don't agree with the changes and maybe they'll change some things back for the 15's if they get enough complaints.

I woke up early this morning to thunderstorms and was feeling particularly princessy, so I curled up with BF on the couch and we watched Tangled and Princess & the Frog through the monsoon it was fun! Thankfully we got our long run in yesterday because its super steamy out now! I'm brainstorming race outfits today...I chose Belle and I have an idea what I'd like for the skirt or tutu to look like, but just need to find someone that could maybe make it for me, since I'm not too crafty that way.

There's an Etsy girl who does beautiful skirts. It's called OnceUponARun. She's on FB too (no spaces) and does a lot of Disney stuff. I haven't bought any but I keep eyeing them because they're really pretty. Wonder if she's here on DIS.

It's hailing here. I was planning a long run today and got rained out all weekend. I have an indoor track at the park district that I could drive to and use but I just don't get into indoor running and end up bored and ending early.

You could make one it's pretty easy. On you-tube you can find great videos about how to make a no sew tutu. It's pretty easy and you don't need to be crafty to do it.

I swear the hardest thing for me was cutting the all tulle the right length.
Also, the great thing is if you don't like it you can basically start over from scratch and start again.
