Just wanted to share a couple things...

1. I just found my email from rundisney with final race instructions for the ToT and it was 17 days before the race. So I guess we could be waiting till 2/7 a little more than one more week.

2. Got my longest run in to date today. 10.96 miles! with a pace of 10:17. I am beginning to feel like I am almost prepared enough for the phm.

You are doing sooooo GREAT ! Can I bribe you to have my mimosa waiting at the finish line since at my current pace I'll be a good half hour behind you !

UGH...does that mean almost another two weeks before we get them? I want it now only because it means we're that much closer and I need a vacation!

I just went on rundisney and noticed too it has been changed since last night from 30 days to two weeks. You would think this was their first race !

Any of the Florida Princess' have a long term weather forecast for Feb ? I know here in TX it looks like above avg for Feb.

It is so close yet so far. runDisney, throw us a bone please!!!

Agreed.

You would think since it's an anniversary year we would be getting more information by now and not less. I would love to just see some merchandise at this point. I don't buy the purses (could care less) so I would love to see some of the shirts.

Run or no?

Had my gallbladder removed a couple of weeks ago. Already registered for the princess and can't get a refund. Not sure if my body will be ready to do 13.1 I have no idea what to do. Besides the fact that it would be a total waste of my $$

Thoughts on what I should do!? Pros vs cons?

Also does anyone know how to get in touch with someone at run Disney? Left a message, emailed and tried calling again. So frustrated. I just need to change the email address my correspondence is being sent to.

So we went 7 miles today! I'm proud that I finished, but now I am super worried about finishing without being swept! We made it with a 13min pace, but I was definitely dying by the time we got home. I am panicking that there is no way I can finish.

Any suggestions, tips, thoughts?

First I'll say that I'm not an advocate of"banking" time. That being said, if you can maintain 13 mm for 7 like like you've already done, you've technically "banked" 21 minutes. So for the last 6 miles you would just have to maintain 19:30 minute miles, a slow walking pace. You got this!

I agree with the previous gal who mentioned "banking" time...if you have a cushion built up you could relax a little on the last few.

Also....why not try a 14 or 15 min mile ? Maybe a little slower pace would give you more energy to finish the rest. One of the first things our running coach told us was to start out at a comfortable pace...you can always speed up if you feel better.

I deferred this race last year because of an injury. I used the contact us email on the run Disney page. That eventually got me to the right person. They do have a cutoff date, but I think it has some wiggle room. They were very nice. You get a special link to register for another race. Good luck!

Congrats on your 7 miler! I think you'll be fine for race day. Agree with earlier poster who suggested perhaps a slightly slower pace to start out with that won't leave you quite so fatigued by the end.

I've had this new back issue crop up and a hip problem that I've had for what seems like forever and my trainer referred me to hers...I have an appointment on Wednesday. This back issue just cropped up during the Tink race and literally had me in tears post race, walking back to the shuttles...they are REALLY FAR from the finish at DL...and seems like even further when you're hurting. Anyway, my trainer said she wouldn't normally want someone to do something different this close to a race day, but if it was giving me that much trouble she's afraid it may sieze up on me during PHM so wants me getting some sort of treatment ASAP for the next few weeks. I'm just sort of curious what sorts of things they have done for you, if you didn't mind sharing?
I can't recommend the chiro enough. I swear, these days, mine is like my second husband. I normally go once every 4 weeks for regular maintenance. But with the race coming and the IT band/knee issues I've been having, I've been seeing him once a week. He is a miracle worker. Each Sunday, do my long run, hobble around on the bum knee after. See him Monday, I'm jumping around at Zumba on Monday night. I've had improvement with the problem as well, and aside from realizing I was in the wrong shoes, I think my adjustments and him working on my knee has helped too. Even though I see him weekly between now and the race, I am thinking I'm going to go in once more the morning of the day I leave for WDW. but yeah, I'm one of those chiropractic cures all people lol. Every time I go, my kids get adjusted as well.
