I've been wondering this as well. Any thoughts experienced princesses?

This is my first PHM, but this is from a FB group: "From another page on being swept....The person on the bus was amazingly supportive. He told us that we would be taken to the finish, they drop you off where you waited to walk to the corral, and there was a medical tent there. As we climbed off the bus, they gave us mylar blankets, gave me Tylenol for my foot, gave us our medals and congratulated us. It's not a horrible experience being swept, it just kinda stinks."

I need a strategy for Corral C running. My training partner is a solid A Corral runner. She is unlikely to move to A without me, although she would have a better run up there. We thought we would be in Corral B when we signed up. Our plan, originally, was to place ourselves between the Galloway 2:10 pace group and the 2:15 Clif group from the start.

We can average 10 minute miles Gallowalking or not. We are considering a bit up-tempo from the front of C with lots of walking breaks, then using a slower constant pace during the crowded choke points. After Polynesian/ mile 8.5 we might open the throttle a bit, and see what happens on the ramp and overpass hills.

To quote the line from Marathon Man, “Is it safe?” Putting fast runners in Corral C opens the race to more shenanigans by design. Most of the dudes in this race are there for support of their female running partners.

I think the reason that the males are seeded to Corral C is so that no male is likely to break the tape first; they were getting close last year. Maybe a solution would be to have a male only finish chute; male winners could finish on the right. This chute could be “dissolved” after the first female finisher(s) crosses the line.

What would happen if you don't identify with a specific gender at Race Relations with a Valid proof of time for Corral A?
I agree having the men start in C creates a bit of a mess, especially since this race seems to grow larger and larger. I would imagine a fair amount of the men would belong in A. There's already such a huge pace discrepancy in the first corral as is (I don't know any other race that would seed a 1:45 half marathoner with someone who runs 2:10, but I guess there's enough people that it spreads out and it's fine), I can't imagine the chaos that seeding a 2:45 half marathoner and a 1:45 half marathoner in the same corral could potentially cause if there is enough of them.

My idea was to give the elite women enough of a head start (maybe 10-15 mins?) so that only someone in that corral would be able to cross the tape first, and that way men could be seeded in A if need be. The separate chute idea is interesting, too! As the grow this race, hopefully Disney comes up with a solution that is safe for all involved

The 2 ft of snow is going to kill my last long run. At least we did 12.7 last weekend. Not sure if I should try to squeeze it in on a weeknight, or just let it go. Thoughts?

Oh, and hooray for February birthdays! (2/17)

I would say if you can't get it done in the next couple of days then don't. Running coach already had DH and I tapering off since we are two weeks out. Don't sweat it !

I'm in the same boat too - the roads aren't completely cleared around here (town trucks got stuck lol) and I really want to avoid additional injuries at this point. Even if the road is clear, the snow piles are so high that I'm afraid cars won't see me running on the road My longest run was 11.5 miles but I did in hilly CT (PHM course seems practically flat to me) in sub zero weather so I think I'll be ok for PHM...I hope...
