Okay, might be worth submitting, then. I wonder if they'll expand the corrals this year, as they say they'll do for the WDW Marathon weekend...

Good job!

Question...with this TOT race we can submit proof of time even at the Expo, right? I know it's changing for the 2014 races, but for this one it's still allowed at the Expo?
I'm assuming so - they haven't said "no" yet, anyway.

Too funny! Okay, this is reassuring - thanks! I wound up in C last year and was perfectly happy there, so I don't mind being there again.

So, I'm finding myself in a weird place for a few weeks... no race training plan engaged. First time in over a year. I'm sort of equal parts elated and depressed, lol!

I think I'll take these few weeks to dial back the intensity and run for the fun of it: no goal pace, no set run/walk intervals, no particular target mileage - just go and enjoy the scenery.

That's easy - I don't even own one! I'll still track with my iPhone, though, only because I'm really, really bad at guessing distance and don't want to get stuck too many miles from home... again. Don't ask.

I have a question. My dh is running this race for the first time and is his first night race. He is not sure what to eat and what time. Any suggestions? We have a cape may cafe reservation at 5, but not sure if this is the right thing.

Thoughts?

Thanks.

I ran W&D last year & ate a larger breakfast, pizza around 2ish and then smaller meals from 5pm on. I don't do well with a big meal so close to the start but it depends on what you're used to. I took my regular race timing and backed it up by 12 hrs to figure out what I should do. Also, its warmer than you're used to, so full stomach may not be the best.

The running articles I've been reading have said to practice the eating along with the running. That's the only way he can know what his body will do with food and a night race. I know I plan to do that! It'll be *maybe* slightly easier for me b/c the time difference (I'm only getting in one day before the run) will make me think it's only 7, and I generally run at 4 or 5pm anyway, but I'll still be practicing.

And here I'm worried about eating breakfast at Kona early that morning and what it might do to me by evening!

Well, I must be crazy because I just signed up for the TOT10m. I had NO intention of doing this race, but just had so much fun at the Expedition Everest Challenge that I decided I wanted to do this one too. It's happening on my birthday, so I guess ... what better way to ring in my new year??

With the registration at 80%, and the way these Disney races fill up quick as the numbers climb, I just decided to sign up first, plan later. Now we'll see if I can find a way to make the trip happen...

Trial and error - don't wait until race day to see what works! I can't run on an overly full stomach, so I try to keep it light, regardless of what time of day I'm running. I'll probably go with a decent lunch of a sandwich and salad and breakfast for dinner, likely a bagel with peanut butter or some oatmeal.

Absolutely, a great way to celebrate!

Well hey-howdy-hey, good news: I submitted my recent 10K time to runDisney as proof (which, BTW, turned to be 1:16:24 - turns out I'd been looking at GUN time, not CHIP time!) for the TOT and they changed my anticipated finish time from the 2:00:00 I entered... to 2:01:00! They have a lot of faith in my upcoming training, it seems

Not sure what exactly we're supposed to talk about in here, but since we had just talked a little about practicing food during training, I thought I'd share that I tried a Clif ShotBlok today.

Since I'm still working on my endurance and heart and lungs, AND since I'm a person who loses a LOT of water while running, I was finding myself having problems by the time I was finishing with my jogs. Woozy, needing to eat *right then*, etc. I'd been reading about energy gels, etc, and today I happened to be at the shoe store (hubby's brand new running shoes were losing their soles already!) and they had a wall of energy packs. So I bought some Clif ShotBlok chews, and tried one today.

WOW! It made so much difference! I had one around 3 miles and within 60 seconds I could feel my energy shift into higher gear. And I didn't even have one with caffeine! I had one at the end while cooling down, too, and after the workout DS and I went to the store and I wasn't as exhausted as I normally am. Again, WOW. I will obviously be using those things in races. They also didn't make my stomach funny, but of course this was just the first time using them.


Anyone else use energy gels/goos/drinks/chews/etc?

I'll bring some Gu gels and chomps for the TOT 10 miler,it won't be as many as I did for the full marathon where I brought with me 5 Gu gels,3 Gu chomps and 3 energy sport beans and they gave us like another 2-3 GU gels on the course,I had so many of these energy aids as well as water and powerade that when I finished the marathon I literally felt bloated from all the drinks,gels,chomps,beans,bananas,chocolate etc...I literally just got back from running 7.2 miles in 1 hour 21 minutes without drinking or taking any energy aids,so I don't think I'll need to bring anywhere as many things as I brought for the marathon to go another 2.8 miles more than i did tonight.Maybe 2-3 Gu gels and 2 Gu chomps.

Just reading the list of everything you had in the marathon made ME feel bloated!

Oh I hope I can get to that point of running so long without anything. Obviously I'm not there yet. I still can't believe how I perked up so quick after just one, though. I'm obviously sweating away LOTS of electrolytes.
