I knew I could count on the WiSHers! I had three sweet folks offer to pick up my bib for me! Thanks, I am all set now! I've got to go back through this thread and see if there's a meetup planned. I'm from NC and will be traveling alone, so I'd love to see some friendly faces during the weekend.

A few of us are meeting for dinner Friday at 6pm at Naples in DTD...there are 5 of us so far. I don't know of any other meet ups planned. Let me know if you would like me to add one more to the reservation! (Anyone else interested is invited too!)

Thanks guys! I'm going to go out there this weekend and see how everything goes and then how everything feels next weekend. I decided at the beginning of the week to just do the 1/2, but after talking to my dad yesterday, he pointed out that I had bibs and just see how it all works out. I don't know what happened w/ training this time. The regular runs were fine no problem, but the past month and 1/2 or so before the night before my long run... I just got in my head and psyched myself out. I would plan the route and lay out my fuel belt and everything and b/w the time I went to bed and woke up, I couldn't do it. I've done a marathon before so I know I can do the distance, it was just a mental thing. At the very least, I run the 1/2 and have a nice vacation in WDW before Tink (which is not bad at all) and at the best I finish Goofy and still have a good vacation in WDW.

On a random note, printed out my Tink waiver today and noticed that my waiver for the 1/2 had "no" listed as my shirt size. My 5k was fine, but I though the "no" was weird. Does anyone else have this on theirs?

I heard about this too...can't remember if it was here or on FB that I read it though...mine printed out with the shirt size I registered for, but the one I bought from someone for my BF did say "no"...not that his really matters anyway I believe I read that someone followed up with a call to runDisney and was assured that the correct size would be printed on your bib, which is what you'll show to get your shirt...so, hopefully they are right!

Darn! I thought for sure this weekend would be my last long run, but it may not be! I should be tapering, but since I got behind, I'm supposed to run 9 this weekend according to my trainer. I thought that would probably be it, which didn't make me too worried since I would normally only go up to 10 anyway, but she said today if the 9 doesn't just kick my butt this weekend she would like to see me do 10 next weekend...so I guess I just won't have any taper at all. I was looking forward to reminding myself through 9 miles this weekend that I was finished with long runs for this race to pump me up, but alas...probably one more.

My tutu should be on the porch when I get home tonight...can't wait to try it on! Maybe I should run in it tomorrow morning!

Also, , but WHY can't I stop thinking about doing the new Dumbo Double Dare that is about to open up for registration? I swore off doing DL again after 2011 due to how MISERABLE it is to train in Texas for a half on Labor Day weekend...how quickly we forget, right?

Thanks, that makes me feel better. I just found my reg receipt info from active, so I'll bring that down just in case.

That's so funny, when I saw the 10k I thought to myself "I'll just do the 10k instead of the 1/2, b/c I might be in NY in Nov and the 1/2 went up so much." I was thinking at least I'll be down there for the weekend but still be able to save some money but then they had to announce the dare and I got sucked right back in. But the heat... I couldn't do that, I'm in awe of people who can do that.

Exactly what I thought too...the BF wants to do DL again, so I thought, cool, I can manage traning for a 10k and get by with saying maybe HALF of the swear words I say when I have to train for something longer over the summer...but the allure of this little extra challenge won't leave my mind. I'm nowhere near wanting to do a full, much less the Goofy, but I feel like I could do a 10k and a half, barring any major training set backs. After two years of doing these halfs, I'm ready for a new challenge...just not the challenge of 26.2 yet...this DDD fits that bill perfectly. If they would STOP raising the registration fees, it would be a no-brainer, but that's a bit of a deterrent right now so I'm still debating...that and, oh yeah, the 100+ degree weather I'll have to be running in to train for this. I hate it soooooo much...but I love the medals soooooo much!

Sounds like everyone is training in some capacity for tink

I am praying for some nice weather at tink. My last 3 runs look like this -
10miles/31degrees/10mph wind
6miles/29degrees/11mph wind
7miles/29degrees/7mph wind

I have to run in the early evening, usually starting somewhere around 4:30pm so it gets dark during my runs. I have a head lamp and some arm light up bands but is just gets so cold. I hate training in winter at dinner time

So heres to some nice weather.

BTW, I am renting a car and get in to LAX around 10:50am on Friday. If anyone needs a ride to Anaheim around then, let me know.

Soooo me too. I thought about DL half last year and reasaalllyy considered it. But then didn't sign up and when summer cane around and I didn't have to train, I was one happy mofo. It's hot here y'all!

I'm really liking DDD but the heat- my gosh the heat!!!! I've got to think on this one. Lol. I have a treadmill and like running on it, but the long runs have to be outside. No question

Got the last email for Tink if anyone wants it, pm me your email address and I'll send it off to you. If you had me send you them before, I already forwarded it to you!

I can't stop thinking about DDD too! I think I've convinced myself to do it -- provided I have the $$$ when registration opens. The nice part for me is that I'd much rather train in heat than cold. I ran in 90-100+ temps this past summer and found it much more enjoyable than running in the cold. Yeah, I was sweaty, but at least my lungs didn't hurt!

Now, if I can just kick this sinus infection/chest cold...

I am a head coach in a walking/running group and I have been coaching for 3 years. I don't have the credentials of a professional trainer, but I have coached hundreds of people to complete half marathons and marathons.

It's obvious you have experience with racing and considering your time at the first Tink I don't think you have to worry about doing two more long runs.

I would suggest doing 10 miles instead of the planned 9 and make it an easy long run. I don't know how you feel about walking, but don't feel bad if you have to do a little more walking than you normally do (if any). Also, plan for a slower time at the race so you are going into the race mentally prepared to go a slower pace.

I did a half marathon in March with the longest recent run being 6 miles and the training before that was sporadic. I did a slower pace and didn't have any real problems.

If your training has been off then I believe the worst thing you could do is back to back long runs with no taper. You need the taper and rest so you will be as fresh as you can be on race day.

Mine actually says Yes for the shirt size. No idea what that means.

Thanks for the advice I'm definitely doing more walking! I normally do one mile intervals, but since I've slowed down and missed a lot I've been taking it easy and doing half mile intervals...and it doesn't suck I'm just so slow lately...Maybe something to work on before summer rolls around. Oh well, I've definitely accepted that my goals are changed for this race.
