They hooked me up with some that have been more comfortable than any shoe ever in my life I've tried to workout with haha!
Thanks much! Preparing for a half in three months is quite impressive. I'm planning on finding and visiting a clinic sometime in the new year to be fitted for shoes. I've had my current shoes for more than a few years and I'm finding this to be serious business! Soon, I'll have to be making eating plans! Sheesh! So I kind of fell off the wagon, which I actually didn't expect. I did a four-mile run last week, but never followed up with the subsequent 7-miler with the advent of the holidays, traveling, snow, and sleeping in. The vision hasn't left my mind, though. I know I'll get back on at some point. I actually did a light run barefoot on the treadmill last night, which rendered my feet black and blistered. Not a good idea. Probably will not be doing that again anytime soon. My soles are feeling a bit better today, so hopefully, I will be back on the plan soon! In the spirit of the celebration of self-determination during the second day of Kwanzaa: If we can dream it, we can do it! Happy Holidays and a phenomenal 2013 to all!

I posted this in the Disneyland Half thread, but wanted to make sure it got the info to everyone on here. I know we all put in some good money to make our race trip happens, so hopefully this will help someone on here.

In case you did not see it, Disney is giving away a trip a day in January. You need to register each day because entries are cleared at the end of the day. The link is below. It is a Disney contest that was announced last night on the Dick Clark Special.

www.disneytimesweeps.com

It is a trip for 4, I think it was 5 nights (could be wrong). Again, just make sure that you register each day this month.

Good luck to all. if i cant win I hope it is a Dis-er.

Smile Marathon Weekend

The Marathon weekend at WDW is January 10-13, 2013.
I'll be there with my friend and we'll be running the 1/2 Marathon on the 12th.
Neither he nor I dress up in costume, and most people don't, but it's always appreciated if you do. Most just wear a Mickey hat or something that resembles their favorite character.
Why? You're a delirious, sweaty mess at the end and a costume just gets destroyed.
Not only that, the party starts at 3 AM and getting up, dressed and on site is hard enough.
I ran the WDW 1/2 last January and it was cold!!! I also ran the D-Land 1/2 last September and it was cool until 8am. But, it was so much fun. If you want to bring a friend, do it. If you're flying solo... no worries. I have had some of the best conversations shivering in the dark at a RunDisney event waiting to have the starting gun go off.
Maybe I'll see you there!!
