How exciting! Congrats!

6 weeks ladies! EEEPPPPP!!!!

It's getting real now. I am a little freaked about not being able to obsess over the course yet. LOL What's up Disney?! Maybe we need to remind them to post it. Geesh!

Ran 2 this morning, going for 3 tomorrow, 4 on friday, then 5 on Sunday. Last week was my "long week" so this week I don't have to run for 2 hrs. WOO HOO!

I am already dreading the 2-3 more long runs left. then repeat for Princess.

These races would be great if it wasn't for all the training involved. ha ha ha

I hear you Patty - those long runs are killer.

And to top it off I'm way behind on my training. I was injured and now I've had a stupid icky flu bug for 2 weeks and its kicking my behind. Just when I think I'm starting to feel better I feel like pooh again.

Really starting to freak out about this.

Right there with ya! Still have over a week before I can run again and my last long run was only 5 miles! But I keep telling myself I'll be "almost" ready at least and I'll run as much as I can. Im not worried about being swept even if I have to walk a mile or so of it towards the end. I've accepted that I'm not going to do as well as I had originally intended but I'm still going to give it my best shot and I will finish!

I completely agree w/ you!! I've noticed too that we aren't getting as many emails as we have in the past I think I've gotten 4 total for both WDW and Tink this year. Usually it's more. I wonder if it's the new website. I know that sounds weird, but once the site changed, it seems like less and less info is out there. And can I throw out there ~ not really a fan of the new site, I liked the old one better.

As for training... I have that thought about 2 or 3 times a week!

Kirstie ~ no worries, you'll do fine. If you can finish Nike and their hills, Tink is a walk in the park!!

Keep en eye on marathon weekend announcements. Once they get theirs, ours will follow! Usually a month out so it should be soon! Marathon and Tink are pretty close together this year so I won't be surprised if our info is a little delayed.

I just want to see the course!!!!

The race is still too new to really be a legacy runner but what it is, is someone who has ran the race every year since the beginning. I think with the Original Disneyland Half in September during their 5 year anniversary, they listed all their legacy runners who ran every year since the beginning in their program that they gave away.

They kinda look like the ones from last year and there are 3 sizes. Plus side about ordering them is you know you have one, but the downside is that if you have an AP or Disney Visa, I not sure if it'll register the discount that you get at the expo.

Also got my weekly Runner's World email and they have an article about shin splints. I know some people posted they have them here so here's the link if you're interested. Link
Yes, please, forward me the email; do you still have my address after the last time? I can't figure out WHY I'm not getting them! I know they have my email because I received my registration confirmation, but not a peep since then.

Leskash - congrats on the new grandbaby! I have baby fever right now, so my insides are all melty with your announcement.

6 weeks to go and now I'm wondering what I'm going to do AFTER the race. I'm so focused on the main goal (finishing the Tink) that I have hardly given any thought to January 21st and beyond! People are starting to ask me "So, are you going to keep running?" A friend of mine has been asking me to register for a 1/2 marathon here in town in March (Shamrock'n 1/2). But since I'm not usually a runner, I'm asking myself.... Do I really want to keep going? This could be an expensive way to exercise, ya know?

So, for those of us non-runners who aren't crazy enough to try to do the Princess almost immediately after the Tink (I'm looking at YOU, Patty!!) -- what are your plans for AFTER January 20th?

I got the saddest email today:
Quote:
Hi Shawna,
With the race right around the corner we have pulled the database in order to work on corral placements, etc. We are not able to make changes for corral information at this time.
Please bring a print-out of your race proof or be able to show us your race results on your phone, etc. at the Expo. Please bring your race results to Runner Relations for corral updates after you have picked up your race packets.
We look forward to seeing you soon!


I sent in my proof of time in October! I thought they took it! But they didn't! I hope this doesn't ruin my Friday before the race... Ugh. Oh well... I was planning to shop anyway. I'm hoping that the purses are cheaper at the expo. But maybe not. But I can hope.

Well, I'm a runner by nature, so I love this and will keep running races every few months. I plan on signing up for the Nike race in SF next year AND the Disneyland race (5k or half? still undecided.) But there's a zombie run in the middle of the summer that's only 5k or so. And there's a 5k mud run. And there's the color run. One of my co-workers is doing the electric run, but that's 1 week after Tink, so I'm skipping that. And the registration fees aren't that much for the smaller runs... I think the 80's run was $30.
I guess my plan is to keep my eyes open and run as many 5 to 10k's that I can.

.

Im definitely not a runner by nature but I'm pretty sure I'm stuck on this running thing now. I've found it way too addicting to stop! I love it! I plan to keep doing 5 and 10K's mainly. I'll hope to get into the Nike half again next year. Its closer to my home so its more affordable for me than DL races. And I'm sure at some point I'll run another disney race too, maybe every other year? But either way I'm loving running and plan to keep it up. Maybe one half marathon a year mixed in with shorter races.

I thought I saw earlier this week on the WDW thread that they are guessing next week for the waivers, so hopefully the week after that we'll get our waivers. As for our course... I've now given in to the idea that it's going to be a surprise race and we just follow whomever is in front of us.

Make sure to take everything in and enjoy it. Course still isn't out, but if it's like last year, DL is in the around Mile 1 or 2 towards the beginning and DCA is at the end. It'll still be dark for the DL part, but the lights will be on so it'll be pretty. The disney races are always fun, but w/ it being your 1st make sure it's fun for you and don't get caught up in what other runners are doing or in a pace you can't keep up.

Sorry about them not taking your time, that's not right. It won't take to long at the expo, just go to runner relations to the right of bib pickup, show they the printout/proof of time and they'll put a sticker over your corral letter on the bib. No more than 5 or 10 min.

As for the purses, if you have an AP or Disney Visa, you'll get the normal discount on them, same w/ the other disney race merch. And you might want to go to that part of the expo first and before you even go downstairs to pick up your bib. Last year I got there when the expo opened and there was a line specifically for the expo and purses. Some of them were even sold out by the afternoon. It was crazy!!
