Add me to the list! I'm officially registered for the PHM!

This is my first one and all of you have been very inspiring. I've been doing pretty well with my training but its been tough with a new job and the weather getting cold up here in the north. Whenever I'm lacking motivation, I check out these boards and remember I'm not alone training for this.

So I just wanted to say hello and thanks for keeping me moving!

Now it is hunting season, which always makes me a bit nervous for running, and it is cold and dark in the morning before work and in the evening following work.

I've got my race registration, hotel reservation, and airline tickets... but I seriously need to kick it into gear to get back in shape for this race. Any advice for sticking with training in the cold weather/dark days/busy holiday season?
I like the new gear idea- nothing like spending a bunch of money to get you back out there. And, with hunters you really do need to be identifiable.

Also, take it easy on yourself. A short run is better than no run. Set reasonable goals for this week, and I think you will find that you are back in the swing of things next week.

Hi Princesses! I just signed up for the Princess 1/2 and just started to read all the great info on this thread. This will be my 1st race, so do I just let Disney decide what corral to put me in? I've noticed some talk about running a 10K before the Princess and then submitting times at the Expo. Is there a certain running pace for each Corral? I am not fast and do not have a specific goal in mind right now for the race, but I don't plan on walking either. Any advice? Thank you!

Anyone know if results from a virtual race would count? I have a Facebook friend doing a 10k virtual race on December 8. It looks like all results will be listed online via google doc. Thoughts?

nycrunningmama - race for recovery 5k10k

Sorry, I can't post links yet.


Eta: I googled other virtual races because I was curious, and some have a results page or post results to cool running . Com

Is there a b-tag in the bib? I have done races like that, where you just leave it on the bib.

It has to be chip timed. With a virtual race you could enter anytime you want. KWIM?

Fyi if you have never run in Moreven Park where the race is those aren't rolling hills my husband did he Spartan race there and when I suggested this he said NO he said the hills are a bit hard.


Thanks for the suggestion

I did the 2011 Rotary, can't remember but I'm pretty sure there was a chip times were posted online and I think I may have taken the time to the 2011 Princess.

I actually love going up the hills there; yesterday I did a 5k in the front of the park at Ida Lee-up is good, the down not so much!

That's what I figured. Why are 10ks so hard to find? I'm tentatively planning to do one in Jan, but it depends on the weather. Darn WI winter running.

The only 10k I can find in my area is exactly one week before Princess. That's about the mileage I would probably be doing that weekend anyway so it may work for me. However, it's a trail run as part of my running club's winter trails series. So that might slow me down. On the other hand, it's at our local park where I run every weekend. I'm pretty used to those trails. I haven't seen the course so there's a possibility they'll take us off the beaten path, in which case all bets will be off.

I'm kicking myself because we have tons of 10Ks around here all summer and into the early fall. I didn't do one partly because I was OCR training for Tough Mudder and partly because I planned on using the 15K Hot Chocolate for my placement time. Then I got hurt and couldn't run HC so now I don't have one to submit. My own fault or waiting, but I didn't think in a million years that it would be a problem.

Just got back from my 6-mile run. 1:00.59!!! 10:10/mile. I was hoping to be right at 10/mile but I also haven't run 6 miles in 20+ years so I thrilled!!! Now I'm starving so hitting our favorite place the Red Rabbit for some Bunny Burgers, last weekend open until next year and I've certainly earned it.

I'm supposed to do a 5k thanksgiving morning and hubby is trying to talk me into doing the 10k. Not sure what to do. I'm going to look at the course elevation and decide.

All of you looking for 10k races, come on down to east TN! There are a bunch coming up. I'm going to do one this week, one in Dec, and either a half or 10k in early Feb. There are 6 10ks and 1 12k between now and the Princess.

Hi! Welcome! If you don't do a 10k before the race they place you in further back corrals. Which I think leads to more anticipation because you see like, x amount starting and all you want to do is cross that start line! I would check your area for any 10k's and try it out. It's worth a shot for better placement. I don't know what the cut offs are for each corral? Or how many they have. I did my first for Disneyland Half in September and they had 8 corrals. I was placed in the 6th because it was my first one and I didn't know you could bring proof of time to the expo. So I learned this time around . Best of luck training!

The 10Ks will give Disney an idea on what corral to place you. They don't require proof for any time given over 2:45 but anything under that you need to give a 10K or longer race time to prove your speed.

If you put 3:30 they will assume you are a walker and you might be in the back corral. If you think you will run faster than that, you can email them and change your estimated finish time. If you want to possibly move up to one of the earlier corrals, then do a 10K and that will show them where you should be starting from. It's not required unless you think you are finishing faster than 2:45.

HTH!

Is there anyone that has done the Princess Half in the past that used GPS tracking that could post their elevation changes? I wasn't really worried about the hills. I'm wondering if I'm overestimating the average hilliness of my runs though. My 5K Friday night had an overall gain of 500+ ft, and it really didn't seem that bad. I just don't know how that compares to the half.
