Cool Donald's Defiant Dashers 2012

Welcome to Donald's Defiant Dashers 2012!! We are also known as the Triple D's or Ducks.

We are one of several Teams here on the WISH Events Board. The Teams were designed to give WISHers smaller groups to interact in.

All are welcome to join here; past, present and new Ducks! All you need to do to join is post and introduce yourself. I'll add everyone to the Team List as we post.

Count me in please!

I'm planning on the Princess for 2013. I have a long way to go, but I have a plan and am motivated. I'm trying a modified C25K in hopes that I will be ready to run a local 5K in late March/early April. I've already completed my first week, and I feel great!

The Tag Fairy is jealous of you...Japan gets all the good electronics and video games first. Plus, DisneySea is so much cooler than any other Disney park. Can you be my tour guide when I visit?

Checking in from Houston.

Got back from WDW yesterday (yes, I stayed for a week after Marathon Weekend to play). I walked a 5K today during Houston's race weekend (marathon, half marathon) to support a friend and the Parkinson's Society. Came home and took a nap. Man, that vacationing really sucks it out of you!

It was soooo good to see the Ducks again and meet some new ones, too, last week. After reading some of the closing posts on the 2011 thread, it appears many of the Ducks brought A LOT of pixie dust back from WDW to the pond here. What is this talk of Goofy and Full?!?

I've made no real decisions about 2013 racing yet. I want my C2C medal, so I'm about ready to pull the trigger on the DL Half on Labor Day weekend. I also really enjoy the W&D Half, so I'm pretty sure I'll sign up for that one, too. But no silly decisions about 2013 yet. I'm sure I'll be there in January. Just no decision on what events to run.

Back to pounding pavement tomorrow. I've got the Princess Half to get ready for next. My sister is working on our costumes. I think the three of us will be dressed as the Fairy God Mothers. Not sure how we'll run with those parking cone sized things on our heads, but I have faith in my sister...

Quack on, Ducks!

Just did my first post half run. Took a week off and i have to admit i was worried that I'd have no motivation without a race on the immediate horizon. I'm in a maintanence phase right now. But i got out there for a four mile run and had my best time for that distance.

I'm planning on doing the TOT 10-miler in September and the Full in 2013 at WDW.

I've been looking at compression socks. Does anyone have any experience with them? Do they really work?

What kind of cross training do you do? I'd love to do more than bike as cross training this year...

WTG on your 4 miler! Maybe think about doing some local races to keep you going?? That's what I'm doing.

I have some compression socks but I find them so uncomfortable that I only used them for a bit when I first got them and haven't touched them since. I see the people wearing them during races and think, ugh, they look so itchy! lol

Hello Ducks! Welcome to 2012! Great to hear that everyone is out running again! I have still not run since the half, though my legs feel great now. The Monday after the Half it hurt to walk, but I was able to ride to work with no problem, and I went swimming later in the day as well. I might go for a run today. Yesterday was the coldest we have had here this year. I have a 10 mile race in two weeks, the Run to the Brewery. As for plans for Disney races, I am planning on the ToT race and the Full in 2013.

Have a great week!

Thanks for the warm welcome Ducks!

I'm scheduled to run again in the morning, but there's a 30% chance of rain. So, I think I might just go ahead and knock it out this afternoon.

However, I know I won't be able to avoid running in the rain indefinitely. Like any good duck, I'm not afraid of a little moisture, but what do I do about my shoes? What's the best way to dry them out when I'm done?
