I've seen a couple posts (while trying to catch up on this board, I've been MIA) about the airport shuttle to Disney. Is it easier to have them just take your bags for you or is it smarter to wait for the carousel? I'm just nervous that it wouldn't get delivered to my room! And also is it easy to get from the terminal to the shuttle? That's my only fear is being all scatter brained and having minimal signage to help me find my way!

Tinker Bell was so much fun! It got me super pumped for Princess. I need to get started on my outfit! Best of luck continuing with your training, ladies!
MCO is a really small airport, I don't think you could really get lost. If I'm right there's a map of the airport on the magical express voucher. You can also check the airport website to see what gates your airline usually use. As for the luggage, I always use their bag check. Much easier. That being said, since luggage might be delayed, either because of the ME or the airline itself, I always bring a change of clothes and everything I'll need for the race in my carry-on, only to be on the safe side.

I wound suggest NOT checking your running clothes and shoes. Day time clothes can be replaced but if you don't have what you are comfortable running in, 13 miles could be a long way. Bags do get "lost", sent to other airports, etc. It just happened over Christmas. One of our bags look an extra 24 hours to arrive. Luckily it was skis and on Southwest and they pay for the cost of rental equipment...great time to demo new stuff! But you do NOT want to demo new shoes etc on race day.

Playing major catch-up on this thread, so please forgive the quotes from 10 pages back!

Maine here and boy that "high in the 20's" would be appreciated right about now! Guessing you are experiencing the same frigid temps and windchills as we are this week. Brrr!!

I was so worried I was under trained and would end up walking the last half. I did great today and ran my intervals as planed the entire race. I stated to get tired around mile 12. Finished in 2:52 when I thought I would be closer to 3:10. They say if you get to 10 miles in training you will be fine for a half, I believe that.
Great job on your first half! I'm encouraged by your experience as I might not get past 10 miles in this training cycle.

Any of you Tink runners (or marathon weekend - Joan) have race reports posted on blogs or elsewhere on the boards? Please include links so we can read about your adventures!

Of course, the longer you are out on the course, the hotter it gets, but the race starts before 6AM, so even by 9AM it's not so bad.
I ran the DL 1/2 last fall too and loved the weather (except for that blinding sun coming up when we crossed the one overpass). It was warm, but no humidity, so felt great!

We're in Maine and freezing this week! I have one local friend still running outside and I don't know how he does it. Looking forward to a few days of Florida temps and sunshine in February!

I got my shoes at Marathon Sports too!! Love seeing the Boston Marathon finish line just outside. We live in rural Maine... no running stores nearby... but DH works in Boston a ton and we always stay at the Sheraton by Hynes CC when we go with him.

This race was actually my best yet !!!!!
Really for the first time I was really "in the zone" and just kept pushing myself, kept running and had a strong finish. I'm usually very cautious (probably too cautious) especially when running by myself, but something just really clicked and I just went for it !!!! Maybe it was my wings. But I am even more excited for Princess and to really push and challenge myself even more.

I'm so excited and I knew you Princesses would "get it". Now I am half way there to finally getting my C2C. Until next years Tink, it's time to put my wings away and start polishing up my tiara.

Can't wait to run with all of you !!!!!!
Congrats on a great race!

LOL! I grew up in Atlanta but have lived in New England for many years. We show up to visit Atlanta family in the winter and are out in our shorts and flip-flops while everyone else is layering up with sweaters and coats.

We leave four weeks from today!!! SO excited! Wishing I was further along in my training though.

I'm definitely NOT checking any of my race stuff! I'm pretty sure I would die inside if I didn't have *my* running shoes and sports bras etc. So no worries that's ALLLL goin' in the carry-on. Thanks though!
And I guess I need to take a closer look at the magical express pamphlet I got! Thanks so much for your help. Makes me feel better that the airport isn't giant

DH is running with me and our daughter. He needs something like this or similar to go with the theme of the race.

We're thinking of a frog theme. Any ideas or suggestions?

Believe it or not, I am all packed! Just washed my stuff from the Tink trip and put it back in the suitcase. I replenished my nutrition products and got a new tube of toothpaste and I am set.

Pretty much my plan for tomorrow. It's all clean, just have to repack minus my costumes. Dint gave those ironed out. But I'm planning to go the same. Why reinvent the wheel?

I'm slowly getting used to the idea of leaving again. I packed a lot into the Tink 6 days and was feeling mentally and physically low. But sliding getting back to game mode!

How about this for your hubby, "I was a frog before she kissed me and made me her prince."

I was talking to my girls tonight about my costume for Princess. Was hoping to start getting excited for it. May have worked a little. I think once I unpack and do the laundry from Tink I'll start to get excited. Just feeling a little overwhelmed right now and I'm worried that Princess won't live up to Tink with all the cool, special experiences I had there.

Someone convince me its going to be just as special.

How about a picture of a frog prince with the quote "A kiss if you can catch me!" He can have Hershey's kisses with him for those that ask

MCO seems huge to us! Obviously not as huge as someplace like ATL, but our airport at home is tiny. We have only have 12 gates. But yes, it's easy to find your way around MCO.
