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 think the only time your registration date would come into play would be if you didn't submit any time at all. As long as you've submitted an acceptable time to finish under 2:45 that should be the only thing that determines your placement....at least that's how I understand it.

Awesome, sounds good! Thanks!

I'm thinking a leaf pattern on the tank maybe and if I stick with purple/periwindle, my running bib should even match.
Have to laugh - when I ran into Tinkerbell last year and I told her I was dressing as her, she asked if my costume was made of leaves and tree sap. I told her, sadly, no, but I wish I had thought of that b/c it certainly would have been more authentic!

Do the same thing you would do before a 10K - you are right, you don't want to risk "loading up" on something and then having tummy troubles the next day. Besides, the whole "carb loading" thing is a myth. Nothing stays in your body all night long! Just do what you would normally do. Also, that morning, stick with your normal pre-run breakfast.

Thanks so much for the advice! I've been doing lots of research to try to figure out how to prepare for a half (besides the training plan, of course), and that seems to be the consensus. I'll just plan to eat as "normally" as possible. Thanks again!

My group is in a DVC villa, so we're planning to make dinner in the room. I want to replicate what I normally eat before long runs and plan to be in bed by 7.

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.
OMG, hello twin! I have scoliosis, too, and I'm positive that's a contributing factor - it's my "longer" leg that had ITBS and it's that leg that A. was always on the down slope of the road, and B. tends to overpronate in an effort to ease the transition to my "shorter" right leg. I've found that the strengthening exercises have helped a lot and have definitely altered my pronation: I still roll in at the very end of my stride when walking, but not during my run intervals. I wound up in low- (bot not zero-) drop shoes with a little extra arch support, but no full stability. I alternate between Brooks PureFlow with better arch-supporting insoles and Brooks PureCadence with the insoles that came with them. Both seem to be good and I haven't yet been able to pick a favorite to wear for the race! I also read somewhere about taking good ol' white athletic tape (though I'd think duct tape would be good, too) and rolling it flat around a couple fingers, over and over until its thickness is about the same as the dip in your hips from the scoliosis. Stick that under the insole in the heel of your "shorter" leg's shoe. Because it's in the heel, it doesn't help when I'm running, but it's made a difference when I walk - I definitely don't overpronate as much (maybe not at all) on the left, which seems to keep the ITBS at bay. Worth a try!

Oh, no worries - I'm certain that proof of time takes precedence over everything else!

Funny note, the color of the running pants is listed as "stealth". Believe me, there is nothing stealthy about my running. clomp, clomp, clomp!
Ohhh wahoo! Love! We will have to say hallo! Haha! Omg i love "stealth"! Ha! Sounds like a Zoolander pose!

Ps I have to log in to that site to see your pic so I didn't get to see it. I'm pretty hard to miss, blond bob and giant Snow White tattoo on my arm!

Since I'm ridiculously indecisive and constantly second-guess my trip plans, any reviews on the restaurant would be awesome! Thanks so much!
We have eaten there a few times. It is very good, clean, organic (for the most part) food. We like it very much.

Ladies, I've got a brand-new, never been worn, yellow Sparkle Skirt sitting on my dresser. It just looks ridiculous on my short legs.

I may bring it to the expo and see if Leah might consider letting me exchange it for something else, but thought I'd first see if anyone here is in need of a sequined, yellow, size S skirt. $20. Give me a shout if you're interested!

I got a Team Sparkle skirt and my problem is the opposite, it's shorter than I thought (shorter than a Sparkle Skirt but also more sheer) but it covers all of the necessary parts! The more I put it on, the more I like it and I got a pair of the short running shorts so they go along with it. I think it'll be really comfortable to run in. Sadly I'm a medium or I might be interested in that sparkle skirt because I actually tried to order the yellow Sparkle Skirt first and they were sold out.

I just need to do a bit of a "yay me" post. Today I ran for the first time in 6 weeks after breaking my foot! I decided to try for a 4.5 mile run and just try to finish! Well I not only made it distance wise, but I had a 12.26 pace!!! My foot is a little sore, but hopefully I can get back out there tomorrow!

I have been really stressing if I could even finish, so this gave me so much confidence! Here is to the next 36 days of crazy training!
