But if they do open up more slots, um, I might not be responsible for my actions.

If that's what it is, you girls should totally sign up !! I'll be a little sad if it is because I did GET travel and it was so expensive and I didn't *need* a hotel. But I booked one for the night before the race so that way I could get a nice quiet sleep, and not sleeping on my friends floor like I planned on, for free .

But my halves next year are tink, princess, and hopefully the DC half. I also want to do the disneyland half again in sept (I just really like running their events!) and when Nike opens up San Fran again I'm going to go for that too (its in october). I'm feelin' a little cray cray, but it's okay!

I've said it before, I give good hugs....... and I love hugs after the race! the more the merrier!

I know what you are saying my husband had to sign up through a charity and now we are struggling to raise the money and we paid a lot to enter.

Kindakrazy and bskelly you guys are standing next to that devil on my shoulder that convinces me to do crazy stuff like this, and signing along! Worst is those three races will qualify you as a half fanatic, Bethany. That and a c2c medal is mighty tempting. But gotta save something for next year, right?

For those of you who are "thinking" about Tink....DO IT !!! Last year it was SO much fun and just think Coast to Coast. Who doesn't want a little more bling.

It's also fun to run in wings. Personally, I think you run faster.

Forgive me if this has already been asked, but with 253 pages it's a lot to sift through!

The rundisney website says the expo is at Coronado Springs, BUT the confirmation email from Active says it is at ESPN WWoS.

Anyone know which one is true?

Thanks

I can't think of anything else that teaser from runDisney could be other than opening up some more spaces...though I didn't even think earlier about what a bummer that would be to those who signed up through a travel company or charity after individual spaces had sold out. For those still on the fence...I say to go for it if that's what they end up doing. I really really enjoyed the course...I liked it a lot better than the DL half.

I'm off to WDW in the morning! And I have to pat myself on the back for a moment...I knew there was no way I was going to get up Saturday am at the Caribbean Beach and run the loop around the lagoon 8 times, so I did it today...just got back in from my 8 miler...of course it warmed up this week and it was a sunny 82 when I started. That wasn't so much fun, but I feel better knowing I did it. I need to try to at least get in 4 or 5 miles while I'm there, but I'm not gonna stress if I don't. The bf has decided to get in his 16 miler tomorrow am before we leave...which means a 3:45 am wake up for him tomorrow! He's crazy...but I bet he'll have a great nap on the plane . I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Let's all be sure to indulge a little bit...I think we deserve it!

I love CBR! We just stayed there for the Wine and Dine half weekend. Transportation to all of the race related events was seamless. Seems like every time we walked up to a stop, the bus we needed was pulling up.

skirt

Got my green sparkleskirt in the mail today. I ordered the fairy green because it's closest to the Shot@Life colors since I raising money for that org. It doesn't look as cool as I wanted it to. But, with my girls' green fairy wings it looks great!!!

But now I'm all dressed up for the Tink half and not the way I wanted to look for the Princess half. And now you princesses are telling me there are potentially spots opening up for the tink? One thing leads to another

Maybe I'll see if my daughter wants to be a fairy with me for the 5K, but I really was looking forward to being Pochahontas to her Meeko. Decisions, decisions...

I'm back... Almost... For the first time in almost two month I did a run yesterday without any pain in my hip. It was only a 2,4 mile trip and I went veryyyy slow, but I did it and it didn't hurt!!!
I know it well take time before I can start a proper training, but at least I can do smaller runs now. PHM here I come!!!
