I have no plans for dinner. I think that time is great!

We're eating at the Wave the night before the race...and right around that time. I like to eat early, get everything laid out for the AM and get in bed by 8pm. I may not sleep by then but want to be relaxing and off my feet by then!

Hey Cripey, are you a news person?

I received my first Sparkletech skirt in the mail today. Love it. It makes me happy. I cannot wait to try it out. Hopefully it will not be rainy and freezing this weekend. Alabama has sure had some crazy weather this year.

I think we will probably eat at 5-5:30. Then maybe a snack before bed if needed?

Maybe - you are getting equal time on both sides, but it could be each half is too long. Other things I've read to be attributed to ITBS are: shoes (too much/too little stability), leg length discrepancies, form (taking too long strides), weak glutes and/or hip abductors, weak knees and/or ankles. Yeah, it's quite the list, lol! I tried to hit all possibilities - try to run down the center of roads and stick to non-canted paths when possible, strengthened all muscles groups, stretched, rolled, switched shoes... I don't know which of those things helped, maybe all!
.
I got checked out for my shoes last spring when I had shin splints. I didn't rechecked when I bought new ones this fall. Do you think my stability needs changed in 6 months? I have pretty bad scoliosis which make my hips and legs uneven so that could be it. I'm working on glues and hip abductors in PT, so we'll cover that. As far as the running path, I know that if I have to drive somewhere else, I'm not going to run so I hope it's not that! And as for form, I've found that my knees actually feel BETTER when I run fast! (When I run fast, I lengthen my stride...which doesn't make sense because I've heard that causes more pain. And it does, in my shins--but it makes my knees feel better. I've done some 1:1 intervals where the running was a 7:45 mile...but I can keep that pace up for maybe a mile if I'm lucky. )

Oh, and I teach Kindergarten. I have to stand on a chair to turn the overhead projector on/off every day. Today I was getting down and knocked my bad knee on the table...HARD! It took everything in me not to burst into tears or start saying inappropriate words in front of my kiddos! Now my knee is bruised, stiff, and swollen again!

We have a 4:45 ADR at Tutto Italia. I know it's ridiculously early, but we're up at the crack of dawn Friday to catch a 6am flight, up early Saturday for the 5K and then up RIDICULOUSLY early Sunday for the Half. I'm not good at going to bed early, but I am hoping that after 2 days of early, I'm tired enough to be in bed by 9pm or so.

Not too early! We are eating at 5:15 at FF. Last year we ate at 5:30 and the meal actually took forever for some reason so we made it a little earlier.

Can I ask if you've eaten at The Wave before (or if anyone else has?) I was considering trying a resort restaurant as a special "pre-race" dinner, since we always pretty much eat exclusively in the parks -- and I currently have 5pm ADRs there, with the same plan to be in bed by 8pm!

Since I'm ridiculously indecisive and constantly second-guess my trip plans, any reviews on the restaurant would be awesome! Thanks so much!

Dudette! We'll be at the flying fish at 5:35! See you there. I look like this...
http://www.crowdrise.com/fundraise-a...ife/cindylevin

And I uploaded a picture of my work-in-progress Frost Fairy costume. I'm out to buy white hairspray tomorrow to see if I look hideous in it or not. I found silver comfy running pants (not purple, teal, or aqua), but I think if my hair were white it would give more of an idea who I'm supposed to be. If anyone sees any real running capris that are those colors let me know. My wings could go with all those colors.

I'm thinking a leaf pattern on the tank maybe and if I stick with purple/periwindle, my running bib should even match.

Funny note, the color of the running pants is listed as "stealth". Believe me, there is nothing stealthy about my running. clomp, clomp, clomp!

When I thought I was going to be more in that area pre-race, that was my first pick as I felt they have rather "normal" things on the menu for a nice restaurant. This is not the day to try new things eating out! Never been there, but that was my thought.

My thoughts, too! But then I started wondering if I should stick with one of the Italian restaurants, or somewhere I can pasta. Then again, I started wondering if that's what you're supposed to eat before a half marathon?

I've never run a race longer than a 10K, so I pretty much have no clue what I'm doing in terms of pre-race prep -- and I am definitely weary of trying something too "different" the night before!

You make me feel a bit better... but if it comes down to when I registered... then I might be pushed more to the back because I registered pretty late.

This has me nervous. I would hate to push to get a better time in a 10k and then have it not make a difference because of how late I registered.

For you then I hope it happens on 2/2... but for me... I hope sooner. Honestly, I will just not hassle with traveling to another town to do a 10k if my placement is good enough..and that 10k is before 2/2 so for me...sooner is better.

Count me as another Wave diner. Mine is a tad later though... at 6pm.

I have! This will be the third time we've eaten there as a pre-race meal...we really enjoy it. Ingredients always seem very fresh. I normally go with a salad, the chicken sandwich and lots of water! BF likes their wheat penne pasta dish with chicken.
