Merry Christmas Eve Tinks!

Good news, I found a bib for the BF with a number fairly close to mine...YAY! I just bought it, I think (hope!). I guess it's just one of those times I have to give someone the benefit of the doubt, cross my fingers and hope I just didn't get taken for $160! For now, I'm having faith

Ran a very slow 7 miles saturday. Surprised I got through it with not too much trouble, but it was the slowest I've ever run. I was proabably a little too cautious and could've pushed a tad harder, but I just didn't know and didn't want to find out 3.5 miles away from home that I did too much too soon, you know? So, I'll see what my trainer thinks I should tackle this weekend and go a little harder. Of course, it helped that it was 30 degrees here saturday morning...I've been waiting for that for MONTHS. I love it! Not that it really stuck around though...had the AC on last night and this morning. <---this is why we're all so sick around here!!!!! GAH!

I hope everyone's Christmas wishes come true and Santa rewards you for all your hard work this year!

Merry X-mas everyone!!

Add me to the list for dinner! I think I'm on the 1st flight out Fri morning, so I get there bright and early. As for my race "attire", 5k is my Mr Smee costume from last year ~ red beanie, navy cut off sweats and a blue & white stripped shirt. For the 1/2, depending on the weather, it'll be my raw threads Capt. Hook shirt w/ red tube socks (if I can find some) for arm sleeves until it warms up or a red long sleeve running shirt, and a cheap hook I found at Halloween time. If I can find a long plume-y feather at Michael's then I might stick that in my running hat.

Vicki ~ DL actually wasn't too bad, yet. There were crazy amounts of people, but we got on almost everything, just once though. We were in line for Indy Fri night and it stopped a bit and we were talking to the CM and he told us they actually stopped letting people in on Thurs during Candlelight. But it was more b/c people coming in didn't have room to move forward and it was backing up, but I've never been there when they closed it, so that was cool.

Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you are all staying healthy and well for this holiday season and enjoy spending time with family and/or friends.

I have a question about the ChEAR squad. Do spectators have to sign up for the bronze package to participate? And how are they able to go to different spots throughout the course? Is there a shuttle or do they walk? I have a few friends coming to cheer everyone on and they were wondering how to get around and what they have to do. And Disney's website didn't have too much information about it. Thanks for your help!

I hope your TA will correct their mistake and fix the problem for you. You should not have to canc. just due to a mistake that someone else made.
I hope everything works out !!!! Keep us posted.
Received word today that all is well My only issues now will be in not getting swept!
