I ran the hotcake hustle. It wasn't pretty, but I had a time to submit.

I went to Dallas just a couple of weeks ago for the Tour de Fleurs 10k...it was a really great race, very organized!!! And what a beautiful setting...the Dallas Arboretum and a nice lake...not sure what the lake was called though. We were bummed that we really didn't have much time to spend there post race, it was gorgeous out there. I'd go back to Dallas for that one next year if I needed a 10k during that time for whatever reason. Also, Blue Bell hosts a 10k every year in Brenham in april. It's SUPER hilly, but all you can eat Blue Bell afterwards! I booked my room for next year's race yesterday. . I've done the Trafigura 10k here in Houston too...usually held first part of December, if you wanted to come down to H-town

Anyway, what DOES work for me is the Amphipod clip on pouches. I have the Lock On Micropack Smartview for my Android phone. I have to ensure that any running shorts or pants have a drawstring that I can tie tight, but once I do that I'm all set I wear my phone at the center of my back and then use a bluetooth headset. It fits my ID and a few bucks as well.

For water I use the Nathan Sprint, and recently got a Sprint Plus with the zip up pouch, which allows me to stash my energy gummies in there instead of jamming them in my waistband or under my bra strap at my shoulder. I love it!

I can't see myself ever doing a full marathon, but then again, I never thought I'd do a half either and I'm already planning Princess '13, Tink '14 and W&D '14 so I guess anything could happen.

I also understand and used to be the same way.

I have to say I'm much better now since my running, either on the tread mill or at the track, seems to be the only time I have to myself. You know .....a much needed and well deserved break from our wonderful mouseketeer and my husband. I guess my running has turned into "ME TIME" and I can get a little unhappy if I don't put some miles in during the week.

I do enjoy that aspect of it and I always count that as the #1 reason to run (especially outside because inside there are still too many distractions). Between my job, kids and life, it's so rare that no one is bugging me. I love that about running. I jokingly (sort of!) say that I am running away from it all. Only dummy me, I always come back.

Does anyone here know if I can have two bid numbers on the same CD from brightroom and how I would do that if it is possible? I really want the CD but I ran with my sister and would love to have her pictures on it as well.

Thanks!

I'm doing Tink in Jan so this will give me my C2C!

So....what have I missed? Is there a Cliff's Notes version of the first 161 pages of this thread? LOL!

I'm considering doing that one as well. Mainly because I've had a conflict every year in the past and I really want that Hot Chocolate hoodie If I decide to run it, I'll give you a holler if you want to meet. I'd be wearing the tiara visor!

Thanks!
They are pretty picky about you having to be in the picture if you order it on your CD. It can be just a part of your body but you need to physically be in it or you can't get it on your CD. They will tag you by bib and if you find yourself in the Lost & Found or someone else's pictures, you have to call or email them to add those to your gallery and then you buy the CD. So it probably depends on how diligent the person is who gets your call, but they are not supposed to add them if you aren't in it somewhere.

Here's the visor just in case we don't meet up

I think I'll be experimenting to wear a costume tiara for the 1/2, but I got this to keep me going through training. Who knows...still plenty of time to think about hair! Any suggestions about affixing tiara's are welcome though, since this is the best place to discuss such topics

Charity Miles app

By the way, for all y'all racking up the miles with smart phones. There is a free app out there called "Charity Miles" that I heard about last weekend and I'm going to start using. This is their description below. If you're not sure which charity to pick, I recommend the Global Fund to Fight AIDS TB and Malaria (I'm a global poverty activist and I know this to be an incredibly effective organization), but all of them are very worthwhile charities. I mean, you're running anyway, right? Might as well save lives, too

"Charity Miles is an iPhone/Android app that empowers you to earn corporate sponsorships for charity by walking, running or biking. Just choose a charity and press start. As you walk, run or bike, the app tracks your distance and you earn money for your charity. Bikers earn 10¢ per mile; walkers and runners earn 25¢ per mile, all up to our initial $1,000,000 sponsorship pool. And this is just the beginning. As you walk, run or bike with Charity Miles, you also help us attract more sponsors to increase our sponsorship pool for everyone. So please join the movement. And please invite your friends. Because changing the world is a team sport!"

Cute!!!

I wore a tiara for a 5K a few years ago. Actually, I ran it in full make-up, a tiara and carried an evening bag. Some friends didn't think I would show because I hadn't bought new running shoes since having 3 kids and didn't get around to it until about 2 weeks before the run. It wasn't my best time, but my make-up was still flawless at the end. LOL!!!

I actually just wore the one from my wedding. It has combs that stick it in your hair. It was no problem at all.

When you are planning your costume, do you think about how comfortable it is on a long run??? I'm thinking of just wearing a tutu and a tiara, but I'm nervous about the tutu moving around and up and down while running, and the tiara giving me a head ache on the way.
Do you have any ideas on how to avoid this?
