Supposed to do my "long" run of 4 miles tomorrow and I know it's going to be a bit of a challenge after being off so many days.

I have a 1/2 marathon in Sept and we are planning to be away again in August, so I know I need to have a plan in place to keep up with my training schedule during vacation. Any tips for staying on track when on vacation?
Oh boy, do I know all about this! I just got back from a vacation, too, and ate horribly. I did get a lot of exercise in because we were in the NC mountains, hiking and walking, plus one run, but spent a lot of time in the car, too. I've got another vacation coming up in a couple weeks and I plan to make sure I get my runs in, even though we'll be at WDW doing plenty of walking, and every meal gets vegetables or a salad and lean protein. No fries, few desserts. Period. We'll see...

Congrats - it's a great feeling, isn't it?!

I am! Which is pretty funny, given that I won't book until I see AP rates and fully intend to drive to the race, regardless of where I stay.

Good...it's not just me. And can I just add that I have a co-worker planning a trip in early October for F&W fest that hasn't booked a room yet or made one single ADR (but has purchased flights)? When she talks about it, I go insane on the inside! I obviously have a problem.

I am also really anxious to get registered, book hotel and flights!! I am checking the flights every week but still not booking that far ahead...aaah! It will seem so much more real when something is booked!

I haven't posted much, but this is my first half marathon. I have been running only since January, although I used to run back in the univeristy days (ie 12 years ago!). I just started doing some races this spring - I have done a 5K (29:46), an 8K (45:16) and a 10K (57:29). I have another 10K in a few weeks that I will be able to use for my corral placement. I love the race day feeling! I am running with a girlfriend and "sole mate" who is also new to running, but we are determined to do The Princess together! 21K sounds crazy right now, the most I have run at one time is 14K...but we have time, right?? LOL

Um, just reading that is giving me hives! I may have a problem, too.

I'm with you !!! Everything is set for Tinker Bell even my outfit so I need another race to plan and obsess about And with the princess there is so much more to the planning than for Tink. But I've been in the pre-planning stages for months now to it's time to put those plans in action.

Hope DB is feeling better !!!

I too am getting anxious to get everything booked. Only myself and my DH will be going. I feel a little guilty leaving the kids at home, but it will be nice to tour the parks at our pace instead of our kids' pace.

Thank you all so much for the welcome!!!

It was exciting to come back from WDW, decide to do this and get to start planning another trip down

Seriously about the planning. I am ready to register and get working on things. I figured out my 180 days and am going to make sure I don't miss Ohana this trip. I cried staying at the Poly and couldn't get into Ohana to save my life. So sad.

I got registered and hotel booked for Tink the same day, but PHM takes a bit more planning (and money- oy!) I won't know if I am going cheap or deluxe until AP prices come out and my family makes their decision on coming or not. If my sisters are on board, we are going deluxe. If they bail on me, All Stars it is! Either way--- I am so excited to plan!

Add me to the list of must- have to planners! The whole combination of training plus planning is such fun!!!
I want to say congrats to all the Princess who are going to do this race!!!!

Add me to the list

This will be my first Disney run and I am excited. Impatiently waiting for the room rates to be released. We will be new AP holders.

Oh, gosh - I'm a total planner, too, but here's what I ran into before last year's 2 weeks out and NOTHING TO DO. It really rather upset me! Everything was set, plans were made, favorite / must see rides and strategy was discussed.... and then nothing to do but wait. I'm not very good at waiting. So, it's a bit fun to leave SOMETHING for the last minute!

I'm kind of getting that way about our cruise. Since we used a travel agent and we're on that big ship, there's really nothing for me to plan. I know it will be fun, but I'm not used to taking a Disney vacation where there really isn't that much planning involved!

Another planner here too! It definately is a sickness! (but in a good way ) I'm waiting anxiously for host resorts to be announced. We are DVC members and I want to make my ressie now! I'm hoping Saratoga Springs is a host again. I still have to figure out dining ressies. I'm going with a friend and a friend of her's from FL is coming up too. I guess I should ask where they would want to eat, and what parks to go to. Now if JetBlue would just publish their fares after Feb 13 I could get my flights booked. Guess I should ask the friend when she wants to go down.

I simply CANNOT wait until they announce the host hotels!!!

I was seriously considering POFQ as one option, since it is so small. But, we've stayed there before and I want to try out other hotels.

Now I'm thinking POR, but wondering if the bus will stop at all the bus stops at 3 am. I really don't want to get eaten alive by an alligator!

My plans will be completely foiled if neither of these is an option.
