So it seems I'm not alone. Very glad to hear that.

Hopefully the weather warms up a bit. Fingers crossed.

Oh yikes!! Best of luck and well wishes on getting over your sickness quickly! Seeing you are from AZ on the sidebar - we have had a serious cold front the past few days! Stay bundled up! Us deserters gotta stick together

I am in Arizona and this cold front is awful!!! All my friends on Facebook, myself included, have been complaining for days now. I'm so over it. I need my toes to defrost so I can properly run!

I guess the temps are relative. It sounds like its going to be warm to me! We have 32-34 degrees.

(I do get emails from active.com, but not disney.) I finally got around to calling disney to see what was up and they suggested switching my emails to my teammate. Anyhow, I am wondering what, if anything, we've missed by being out of the loop. I'm guessing from your posts you are getting their updates, but I have no idea if they have sent anything we need to know. Is there anything important that they sent out that's not on the website, in your opinion?

On the plus side, I found this site because I was looking for information and have much more good info than I did before. This is my first Disney race.

Thanks in advance.

This is my third runDisney race and I've yet to receive any emails. I've added lots of possible emails to my safe senders list, I've contacted them directly, still nothing! It's obviously a problem on their end and I wish they'd fix it!!

Hahah yeah! Same here. I woke up this morning to like, 50 posts about how it was 19 degrees this morning. Leave it to Arizona though.. tomorrow I think our high is like in the 70s whereas today it's 43. It'd be nice if the weather wasn't so spontaneous! I'm worried to catch a cold because of it so I've moved my runs to inside on the treadmill

4 more daysss!!!

I cannot wait for the heat to return. I will take 110 over this - any day!! I told DH to start pumping himself up with Airborne and positive talk "I'm not getting sick" because...I'm sick.

It looks like the runner tracking link is up, but maybe they haven't loaded our names yet. I seriously doubt there's no one named "Lisa" running this race!

I know there are a lot of first time half marathoners on here and I thought I would give same race day tips. I am a head coach in a walking/running group and I give these tips to my team before each of our goal races.

Race Day Reminders and Tips

• Trust in your training
• Eat a solid, but light breakfast at least 60-90 minutes before the race start time
• Don’t try anything new on race day. No new apparel, food or drink during the race.
• Bring water. Don’t depend on the aid stations as your only water source. You should drink 20-26 ounces per hour.
• Bring more nutrition than you expect to need and use it. It will be easy to forget when you are going through the parks. Think about eating between parks so you don't forget.
• Bring electrolyte supplements and use them even if it is cold
• A hat or visor - no cotton please
• Gloves if the morning is cold. You may want to buy some cheap gloves you can toss once you warm up.
• Tech fiber workout clothing – no cotton please. Dress in layers to avoid overheating
• Sunscreen
• Sunglasses
• Trim your toenails two days before the race
• Use the restroom early since long lines will form quickly
• Don’t start the race too fast. Race day excitement can cause you to start too fast and quickly run out of steam. This can happen to anyone and even the most elite runners have experienced it. Learn from the best and keep on plan. Your first mile should be no faster than your normal Long workout pace and you speed up from there.
• If you running, use the course to your advantage. Run every downhill regardless of what interval you are in. Walk with authority on all the uphills.
• There are photographers on the course so Smile!
• Don’t worry about your Garmin or other timing device until after you have passed the photographers at the finish line otherwise those photos will be of you looking at your wrist.
• Thank the volunteers
• Enjoy the experience
