Long time sufferer of IT band pain here. I used the foam roller a bit and it relieves the pain but I think it's more of an endorphin release. I mean, I feel great after using it but I don't think it's solving the problem. I read in runner's world. com that strengthening does heaps more to help than stretching. They had some great simple moves to do with an exercise band that has helped solve 90% of my IT issues.

I do both- and yeah, I agree about endorphin release. TgSt feels really good! I have a set group of stretches, strength moves and foam rolling that I was assigned as homework. So far (knock on wood) they seem to be working. I rely more on the roller for the quick fixes but all the strength I hope keeps me from more issues!

ugh, me too! I sweat alot when I run and don't care to turn my training into a wet t-shirt contest! The Tinker Bell shirt this year was white too...and I didn't like the fit at all, but the race logo was cute. I think the quality of shirts they are using has gotten really crummy. The 2011 Princess was ok (but white!) as far as the fabirc, as well as a couple of WDW half and DL half shirts that my BF has from a year or two before that, but every other runDisney race I've done since then, the shirt material has seemed really cheap...funny how that happened, but registration prices went up.

It didn't mention anything about the color, but I hope it's that color too. I agree about the shirts 100%. On the Tink shirts this year, you could see the rectangle iron on part, it wasn't blended well at all. And the "goody bags"... ugh!! We were talking in 1 of the other theads a couple of months ago, that there really isn't anything there any more. Race weekends I see people w/ the nice Marathon backpacks from '10 or the cloth 1 we got at the 1st Princess. Now, it's just a plastic bag w/ and igoody bag.

Does anyone know if there were pace groups at Tink last year? I am thinking I'd like to find one to run with, or find a fellow Gallowayer with similar pace and intervals.

I don't remember. I know I saw a group coming out of DCA, but I don't remember if it was Tink or DL last year. At least there's a group for 1 of the 2 races. If no one knows the answer, I can ask at the booth at the expo in a few weeks for you.

There are usually spots still open if you sign up with a charity. Or if my sister backs out you can run as "Nicole". Lol.

I'd love to run it with her but I really don't see her going through with this.

Is there a pill for this condition or do I just keep up the cycle of going to Disney

I am out this year but I have to wish you all good luck as the race nears and you get ready, for those runing it for the first time it was a great race. In fact my DM just tried to get in and run it again, she didnt realize it closed so fast.

First Time Runner and Poster

Hi Everyone - I'm new to both the Disney forums and the Tinker Bell race. This race will be my first ever half marathon, actually first time ever not running by myself in a gym and more than 5 miles. I'm extremely nervous and my goal is just to finish without getting picked up by slow patrol. Unfortunately I couldn't convince any friends or family to run with me. So I'm really excited and grateful for all the tips on this board.
